Still Learning.

I look at you and see





I called you this morning

4  AM your time

7 in mine

I heard you and felt



Gratitude, and then

Without restless questions

I found sleep again.


We are far away

But I am not afraid

I am not pained at the possibility

Of the unsaid name.


We know

I am with you.



For the unpredictable storm

That has swallowed us.

Stretch my spirit

To this slow sound.


With you I am constant

I have shelter,

Without suffocation.

Hope without ache.

With you I am a balance of time.



30ish people read this poem in its entirety.


I read it again.

"none erased. none edited..."

but to make posters of them?

not fair to stoph.

not kind to them.

not necessary for me.

of course, none of that occurred to me in my selfish moment of composition. 

he's a nice boy.

this was my decision.

I hope you don't mind that I read your blog so promptly. I use Google Reader and it tells me each day which of the blogs I follow has been updated. At least I'm only stalking your blog, right?
