within the first light of a new day
with shadows still low and stretched out on the sand
she walks in the footsteps of her father,
fading already


she tries to follow him, still
despite knowing he is away
for good


it doesn't hurt her that he is gone
it hurts he couldn't stay

nighttime sounds: an owl in a tree,
wind rustling the remaining leaves
gnarly branches,
black against the moon

the sweetest dreams,
taking residence in my heart

you & I
an impossible possibility
the sheets will not reveal my secrets


In silence

never would there evermore
a song upon a breeze
for music has forsaken us
went lost among the trees

now darkness has surrounded us
and vanquished all the light
in silence now we just await
the visitor in the night
