Brings Forth

The earth vibrates and brings forth, not a tree –

It is not a tree, it is an explosion –

A Word –

Your name –


Staring In

Don’t leave me here outside,

Standing, staring in.

Where You live the door stands open but my way is barred.

Come clear away the rubbish, stone and water.


I can see Your hearth fire burning.

I can smell Your bitter scent,

Hear You murmuring in the dark.


Will I ever see Your face again?
