COMPANIONSHIP

COMPANIONSHIP

I longed for companionship
From early childhood on.
Throughout the years
It passed me by
Like vanishing clouds.
And then it came to me
In an unexpected way,
I found it quietly
In my presence,
I found it
Right in myself.

PASSAGE

When life passes by us
Don’t become discouraged
Know this life is just
A passage of many
Which will carry us
To another journey…

DAYS

DAYS

There are days
When stillness
Reigns my being

There are days
When my mind
Is engulfed in flames
Like sporadic wildfires

There are days
When thoughts
Are pouring out of me
Like water floods
During a hurricane

midday nap
rest for aching bones
―spring chicken

blocked arteries
junk wall in sewer
mountains of waste
