home II

24 x 24



emotional alchemy.

grey sheen over calming blue

a fool’s errand across the water

shoes reflecting under 

the white office light

I feel lightness,

at the soft touch 

the stroking, gentle thumb

In the palm on my hand.

when my dog decides

on a cold October morning

to curl upon me as I slowly wake

leaving the corner of the bed.

hot water prickles

the frost of my marrow

I can feel confident,

of my return to warmth.
