What We Wished We Could Have Said

If I go down,
if I lose my way,
hold onto the truths
I told you

I love you.

You are magnificent
  like stars.

The world is better
  with you in it.

My universe
  can't exist
  without you.

Things Fall Apart

Things fall apart,
your initiatives fail,
your queries go unanswered,
your heart breaks,
your relationships suffer,
you despair,
and what do you do?

You start over,
you rebuild,
you make another plan,
you try again,
you open your heart,
you reach for more people.

Tiny Sand Frogs

Turning over
a canoe on the beach

I discover

a multitude
of tiny sand frogs,
(five could fit on my pinky)

tiny sand frogs,
of the glorious stars,
of tinier atoms

tiny sand frogs
leap about
in a tiny horde
after I turn over
a canoe
on the beach

Looking Up at the Stars

Looking up
at the stars,
I say hello
to the photon
that traveled
all the way here
across the vast galaxy,
hit my eye.
