Only The Choice To Be

When People Go

The Day You Left (Words From A Half-Remembered Dream)

Wake Wake Wake

It Is In The Rain

Dream Goblins Of The Night

Wake And Remember

Unwelcomed Like So Much Unfinished Business

In March (Finally, Spring 2016)

All For Algernon

Weak In The Knees

The Finisher's Song

Nothing's Sadder Than A Rose

All Beings Considered

This Is It

Max on the max

I Long For Stars

Falling Leaf, Falling Man/Woman, Rising Star

So You Do (May 10, 2010 written for June 1987)

Its About Waking In The Middle Of The Night And Having To Write It All Down

Not For The Bloom of Tears Cultivated These Last 100 Years

If This Is Any Art For Which You Care

If I Could Be The Sky...

threading myself through the river of night

threading myself through the dark river of night
golden eyes glowing
threading myself

the tunnel of air soothes
the dark wind's caress
the occasional grass's parting whisper
the needle's point of silence

threading myself through the dark river of night
blood burns through my veins
threading myself

the damp of wetness seeps
the silence fills
the void that is never emptied
the thrill is ever present

threading myself through the dark river of night
muscles tighten and relax
evening's swiftness moves on like glass
so I thread myself

until the yawing screech of day.

"yaw" referring to a wide open mouth...
and "yawing" being an invented word by myself/Melissa A Howells
