Reminder: We Came From the Stars

i chant the names
of my children and my
children's children 
not so much a beget
of ancestry  a litany of love 
even more an opening 
to a Universe made of music
where there is only one choir
all of us angels today i am
mostly silent listening the
symphony beyond my song i 
chime in an occasional note
of harmony transforming from
this disquise of mortality into
divine reality a cosmic longing
rests always in the recesses of
my existence telling me of so much
more so much better than this grim
television show where everybody dies
and i am left to mourn believing the
insanity of humanity except now
listening i know i see with the one
eye the one mind the one love

A warmer, still cold,
morning. Without steam shushing

shivers and stretches,
beyond the tick of the clock

Without you,

I am just a shell

and I hate myself so much for that.

I preach words of independence and self love

We are walking in the night

I hear the rustle of your jeans

I see the lights of the streets

everything is dark

You’re holding my hands… 65 more words
