catching sparks



I put my mind on pause till the midnight moonrise

I get hysterically reverent when the church bells chime

Painted soft flames of love flick around my heart

the shadow of a poet, she’s only catching sparks.

I want to sleep deeply in a minor key

need that old emerald seas washing over me.

Sprinkles of “should haves” drop into the sand

As seeker, a woman. Just had to love that man.

Catching sparks, clear as star fire

Catching sparks of loving-kindness

Catching sparks like yellow fireflies

Catching sparks till I close my eyes.

  1. Jill….how do I go about following you on Blue Cordelia. When I enter my email address, it tells me that my account does not exist. ????
