Tiny Threads (2010)

Image
Disconnected
Uncertain of my place
Unfamiliar with the space
Above and around me
The ground too far below
Curled inward
I orbit redundantly
Around myself
A lost and dormant seed
In the wind
Spinning faster awakened by the sun
Spreading my limbs to slow my motion
Reaching out and grabbing hold
Of the tiny threads I can finally see
Part of the greater Mercy

Unraveling (December 2012)

I am unraveling and I like it
Frayed edges, softer
Still woven, one piece, but looser
Parts transparent, thinning
Unstarched, wrinkled
Unraveling slowly, almost mid-life
It feels good, and comfortable for now

July 2012 in Powhatan, LA at the old Moreland Dairy and Pecan Farm.

Covered (April 2012)

In my bed covered in children
Who move like water to fill the spaces left
Because close is not enough
The milk filled one
Warm and sticky sweet
Flopped crossways over me, belly to belly
The other one, with his hands entangled in my hair
Pressed to my side
Breath in my ear
We slumber late into the morning
Inhaling and exhaling
Our body rises and falls as one
