I Stand Still



I stand still


among the bare



I stand here


my eyes filled

with beauty


the sounds of

ducks in between

the church bells

sharp in the air


move my tears to

cover my cheeks

such emotional

life will last


in nature we live

we are born

again and again

let’s not forget


Pensive Hazel Eyes



pensive hazel eyes
flickering around
the night where


perfumes sail to
the clouds away


from the cracking
tiny sound of bare foot
on sleepy grass

Children Asleep



how many times

have I tried to

describe the

feeling of


arising in me

in a poem


as I walked the

garden at night

at dusk or through

cloudy days when

your little heads

are reclined all

closed down as


children asleep


the daisies would

not hear me

nearing them

a motherless

woman being

the greatest

mother of all


Black Rim



I walk around my

small land where trees

abound and I have

a restlessness this year

I never had as if

my garden and I have lost



but I attend the land a lot


I sit waiting as at

the bed of a sick child to

whom nobody hands

water exhausted

I tighten my hands one

with the other in

silent pain I look down


to the aging skin

to the black rim under

my nails its dirt

sticking to me my garden’s

way to hold onto me



February 1st 2022



as I contemplate

morning light peaking

through cold mornings


it’s the sound of the wind

running low on the streets

that gets my attention


getting distracted

following fast



dried leaves

rustling through



as dawn catches

up with me

behind my back
