paper tigers

between the luscious greens

paper tigers are prowling in my garden

their fiery eyes following me

 

I see them

I know them well

 

climbing from branch to branch

I gaze at them

my imaginary foes

my fears brought to life

 

they move

they may pounce

but I face them

for they are mine

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
