When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…

“LEND ME”

I shall, if you lend me your tear,

Shed it for you my dear.

I shall, if you lend me your touch,

Caress you since I can, and much.

I shall, if you lend me your leg,

Walk for you everywhere, promise don’t beg.

I shall, if you lend me your sweet song,

I sing it for you, never make it wrong.

I shall, if you lend me your mind,

I think all your problems that you’ve lined.

I shall, if you lend me your manly lips,

Drink wine of grapes, take many sips.

One thing you will not lend me,

That I want the most, to be free.

I shall, if you lend me your love,

Find freedom, something that is above.

Everything that you have and know,

And I need them so badly though!!!!

Dear love:

“I’ve been waiting for you forever.

“In my mind, you’re always there.

“You invade my dreams-

“Whether I am awake, sleep, or swim in stream!

“What do you look like, I wonder?

“How do you dress or act, are you a thunder?

“When I picture you,

“You look rugged, is it true?

“How do you make a living?

“Are you forgiving?

“Can I find you-

“To make my life true?”

Dear love:

I am waiting still.

Signed: “Me and my feeling!!!”

As the time of parting neared,

Like a horror movie, so painful, I feared!

We, mom and I, talked all through the night;

Longingly, she planed a rosy future for my flight-

That wouldn’t be, she didn’t know the blight!

~*

The day came that I was gone.

She said: “Goodbye, then, I’ll have fun!”

Yet my tears froze, binding my heart;

Like bands of steel… From start-

Falling to burst in that cold winter’s art!

~*

Then… I recalled, …I recalled…

A cold snowy walk that stalled…

Warming my icy toes… My cold fingers I did blow;

Remembering a day at the beach… Joy I had not woe…!

Watching the tide washed away my castle, nothing to show!

~*

Flowing tears, … Excruciating pain to melt.

Bursting barriers, tears of joy felt!

Our love was such, joy and wonder!

You, mom, always guided me, you’re a thunder!

I am…

“Who are you?” A friend once asked.
Sad as I was, I had no reply,
Because the ME in me was afraid to-
Discover the ME in me that refused-

“Who am I?” Ask the ones who probably know best-
Mom, because she “RAISED” me;
Dad, Because he “MADE” me;
Husband, Because he “CHANGED me.

I am mother- yes- absolutely, all- consuming,
Unequivocally, so fulfilled, but incomplete-
In that role alone…

Who am I? as sad as it is, I have-
No reply, because the ME in me is still-
Afraid to discover the ME in me-
That doesn’t know how to be free!! …

Behind the secret of night-

The sun’s daughter with delight-

Knits a skirt of golden light!

**

The black bells scowl;

And toll for the death of a fowl-

THE THOUGHTFUL FOWL!

“Dawn’s face is dead!”

“Sun’s streams sorrowfully are red!

***

The cold blood of sun-

In night’s veins run-

Tragically, delicately with no fun!

***

And behind the secret of night-

The sun’s daughter still with delight-

Knits a skirt of golden light!!!!

the-cobbled-streets-of-montefioralle

Foredoomed walked cobbled streets.
Rubbing off on passers spreading ill blood.
Locking arms with old stranger, their Hymn
Of hate faintly creeps through Chapel doors,
Melting the noble priests golden crucifix;
Closing the innocent child’s eyes to the
Drop of blood spilled!

Even song falls making no sound-
Young maiden doest thou shudder;
Belle unadorned with spite.
Passion fills thy veins!

“Impunity?!” Laughs carnage; none is
There here- Saints lose faith, shrink from hope.
Compassion an enchantment of not doubt,
Carried in letters of relic engravers.

Old hag doest thou cry out!?
Death fills thy veins,
Relic is thy hope!! …

A crystallized limb hangs low on a barren tree,
Yet the moonlight reflects a glow of beauty.
The ever present window becomes the enemy.
The limb cries of itself not to weaken or to become anxious.
Yet the challenge itself seems unjust.
How can one so fragile withstand such opposition?

I must hold on to hope,
For the darkness will pass,
And the morning sun will provide me strength.
Be patient, and the clouds will make way to a new tomorrow!
The limb continues to sway.
Only now notices the warmth of its enemy.
Its weight has lessened.
Its spirit never broke,
And the limb hangs high again,
Against the sunlight!
Reflecting a glow of beauty!!…
