Catch Fire

poem about living your dream
Fall inward to where passion burns
and dreams wait to be awakened.
Stoke the embers until they catch,
blazing in an unstoppable wildfire.

Throw up your hands,
surrender to the dance.
Fan the untamed flames
and signal the coming change.


Wedding Day

Poem About Being Stood Up
Torn lace painted with mud,
heavy from the unexpected rain.
Standing alone,
a decision I did not make.

Fading bells,
empty seats.
Birds feast
on what’s left untouched.

Naked fingers,
undone strands.
Past tense overnight.
