Deep and Vast

Deep and vast
Hemmed in darkness
Iridescent splendor

Living Lights Dance

living lights dance
under cinnamon skies—
suspended clock


an oak sentinel
roots firmly
grasp the earth,
even as tempest winds
children watch

Caged Freedom

caged in my throat,
shards of insecurity.
deviation sharpens
their resolve.

Tiny Gatherer

tiny gatherer
simple proletarian
life once more sustained
