What’s Never Been Said

the day
my soul
met yours
was the day
the spaces
between my
words
lines
stanzas
found their
purpose

Searching for Metaphors In You

i searched inside you
looking for you
and this is what i found…

you are:
warmth
in a ray of sunshine;
guiding light
from an autumn moon;
a breeze of wind
to fill empty sails;
a cool droplet of rain
on parched lips;
nourishment
for a starving heart;
home
to a restless soul

i know there is more
so i keep digging

Planetesimal

we are all
planets, collections of Lilliputian
grains, microscopic in
essence, clinging to one
another to form celestial
bodies that revolve
around the thermonuclear
souls at the centers of our
solar systems sharing
space with other souls in
galaxies billions of years
old, refined to reflect
the movement of
time, the evolution of
our external shells,
while our
cores, carrying our chemical,
biological and spiritual data,
remain pristine,
relatively speaking
