soil of your seed

by Singledust

In the sunlight
Beneath the trees
Tread gently
And touch me
I am the soil
Of your seed

when love melted snow….#1

by Singledust

Snow fell gently outside
Inside, your eyes on me
Melted me, warmed me
made the ice dream drip

In the Deep

by S Francis

In the soil, deep down in flowered pots

Before the small pebbles and compost rot

The shredded papers begin their decline.

 

Digging, digging, digging a hole to plant

New flowers I have chosen to supplant

All those buried and shredded thoughts of mine.

Rumpus About (ABON Riff with Chuck and Dust)

by S Francis

In the real time of night we look around without torches
Darkness once inspired the most benign of our fears,
Monsters like Wild Things, rumpussing out of closets
And witches feeding us poison candy under the bed.

 

Now we rumpus about, high on the sweetness we found
And lit up like lanterns showing one another the stars
Whose myths are yet written. Grateful for conclusions unlike
Ones we wrote too early in our minds. We find love.

her dance with destiny

by Singledust

Out of the wardrobe she came
Looking for a new friend, a game
Finding fresh fallen snow
She walked out a little more

From between the woolen coats
She tied her safety ropes
Her lifeline back to reality
After her dance with destiny

in the dark of winter

by Singledust

We look out across the field
covered with snow from the night before
I gaze into your eyes and never want to see spring
and lose this warm winter feeling

Cut from the balloon strings
The vendor holds in sweaty palms
No hands to hold her
She doesn’t need those strong arms

held in your twilight

by Singledust

There’s a striated peace you give my soul
that settles when you touch bone and say
Come sleep with me in this blued travesty
You see all the dreams I burned by twilight
A vivid memory you will taste soft screams
Come alive on me through shiny satin skin
Held warm by twilight and aroused arise I

your drops of saline

by Singledust

When you hurt don’t cry
Your tears are pearls not
Drops of saline
Don’t waste them
Save them
For the days
When taste leaves you

let winter be

by Singledust

Take the summer sun as you leave
And all the falling autumn leaves
But don’t take away my December
When at last it is winter

a walk in the snow

by Singledust

Come he said
And I followed
Putting my heart
In his hands
Take the path
Down south
And I said, yes
I will follow

I love Peter Pan
But he loves Wendy
I can fly and so can he
But he doesn’t want me

a tiny snowflake in a city by the lake

by Singledust

I walked into the city one cold windy day and saw a man in gray
He had an umbrella made of steel with fine lines on display
I had seen that kind of umbrella once before
Described in a story I read while sitting on the floor
