barriers

are you alive
in these concrete walls
God of stones

did they crush you into dust
when they threw me here
among strangers

was it my soul
I saw shatter

is this the river of my life
floating upward
like soft winter breath

dissolving into mist
as the sun captures
each particle

is this what I have become
remembering
you
who are light enough
to pass

through ice, and iron
through the sheer barricades
of time

you, who never
knew limits

I yearn so much for that ligth, so much I can't bear, so much I don't understand I want the light that filters through the ice...you fill my hear with possibilities and wonder

Lorraine--to have the light, remember you ARE the light--
and your photos prove it every day!

You are more than a possibility, you are beauty, just believe it!

that is the most beautiful thing anyone's ever said to me, I want to Love, I want only to Love, sometimes I feel I will never love enough

Lorraine--so many of your comments are so inspiring, they make me wish I could turn them into poems...and so I try--

Percy, my dear--of course I remember that long, lush weekend in Belize, when we put that to the test...
