Mystical Being*

She

bears

her womb,

centered

there in

lays the

universe,

She

delivers

onto us

a galaxy,

where

gods reside,

planets,

stars and signs

align

revealing a

future,

that can

only

be read

within the

night sky

Recollection (haiku)*

Silent, disjointed~

Memories clinging to past~

Entangled confused~

*Note: what most people donโ€™t know is that dementia sometimes takes root at a younger age, the signs may not show themselves until middle age. (Below is a link to more information about dementia.) I dedicate this to my best friends mother Juanita (she was like my second Mom, we even shared the same birthday). She was a brilliant woman (she was an integral part in instituting the bilingual program in the Chicago School System) and a much loved teacher by her students. As always a song.

Face of The World*

life today

can pull

you down

to the ground.

walking through

empty streets,

as fragmented

memories

circle like

splintered light.

once enlighten,

now

pain

etched

shallow faces.

visions lost

hiding

behind

hollow eyes,

thoughts of

tomorrow lay in

shadowed

darkness

so oblique.

*Note: melancholic thoughts are more prevalent this year than in the past. Isolation can do that, call, FaceTime or zoom those dear to you. Know that you are never truly alone have faith let your spirits be lifted. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sending a virtual hug around the world.

The Turning *

It seemed

like

yesterday

~~~~

I was a

bud

in Springโ€™s nourishing womb

my first mother

then I opened

blossomed

in Summerโ€™s warm touch

my second mother

now I have

withered

in Autumnโ€™s cool embrace

my third mother

I await

suspended

in Winterโ€™s final grip

my fourth mother

after which I will

be born again,

Life moves

with the

Seasons
