A Stronger Heart

100_1054

When our prayers fail to reach the eagle’s wings, falling short

of reaching our highest mountains, we fail

to see our visions.

But a stronger heart has learned surrender

each river washing our eyes

as our spirits begin to see, and soar above

the tallest trees. Knowing deeply

all is not lost.

Where Did It All Begin, My Love?

100_5754

Where did it all begin, My Love? you embracing my spirit

drawing me into your essence, as if we had always known

each other? The smell of your hair, your eyes

holding infinity, I was lost in you

from the beginning. Perhaps

it was the depth of your dark brown skin,

I had never known such beauty

before you.

Where did it all begin, My Love?

I’m still lost.
