Frozen

In the midst of a world that appears frozen

follow the purple path within

Know that beyond the shadows holding darkness

there is always a source of light

reflecting truth. Waiting to melt the way

as it softens the heart that would stay cold

Indifference is the face of fear grown tired

Used to the battered landscape, the eyes refuse to see

the false hold. And so we remain frozen together

in stasis, an inert body wanting to be held

until the fever burns once again

into love

The Choice

You are a seed of stars
ready to burst into light

don’t wait for sunnier days
when the ground unfolds
its green bed and life wakes
in a chorus of color

inside of you an eternal spring waits
ready to bloom

it can grow with each breath
kissing forgotten cells with love

where will you place your sacred
lips? To whom will you give life?

fear is a vampire
a vacuum
a black hole dissolving air
and light into the void of darkness
but you can chose where to send
your breath, your light
your love

you can choose
in each moment
how to live
