To Swim

This contract? It ends
I don't wait for men
It's now, that was then
I woke up, I win
I've learned how to swim

Significant Other

God is my partner, so please understand -
I'll never be tethered to woman or man
I won't play a part and I don't meet demands
Unless they're my own and on ground that I stand
I keep neither cuffs nor a ring on my hand
I do all I want and whatever I can
Alone is illusion - I know who I am:
Supported and courted according to plan


Like sediment sinks
Slow down and rethink
Don't settle, but sleep
Awaken in peace
A wind will upheave
Expand and release
As ripples, you reach
Wash, rinse, and repeat

Weather harsh, window sill
Ants are art - do not kill
Shopping cart, poison pill
Put it down, please be still
Fall apart, wait until...
Watch us start, see our skill
Follow heart, with free will -
We are smart - we rebuild

A Rose

Like the light comes through cracks
I'm a rose that grows back
In full bloom and intact
A high vibe and impact
In spite of and in fact
I'm on point and on track 
Free of fear, love from lack
I am better than that

At Play

These birds sound like scissors 
Wings clip cut away
Seams burst, sundress withers
It's dismal this day
My words blend with blizzards
Do dreams die or stay?
Deferred - dead like winter
But always at play
