The smell of Earth

In my nose

Riches of home

The Poem

IMG_0037

I looked

In every place

All these years

Except my heart

I listened

To the noise

all around

Except my voice

I smelled

the tales

between pages

Except my story

I tasted

 Of earth’s

abundance

Except my soul

I touched

the vibrance

of life

Except my spirit

Now

I will be

the POEM.

The Moon and Me

IMG_1620

I met the moon

At early morning

Looking up high

Through bare branches

Of a tree

He whispered

In a cold, frosty wind

Of his love for me.
