Winter’s Cloak

“Let the dawns
come late
let the sunsets
arrive early
let the evenings
extend themselves
while I lean into
the abyss of my being

Let me lie in the cave
of my soul
for too much light
blinds me
steals the source

Autumn Reverie🍂

By Elizabeth Wesley

Melancholy skies, holding back the tears
With wild geese flying to meet other years
Flames of crimson torches come flinging
Leaves on gnarled branches swinging 
Desolate winds rush leaping
Taking flowers to their final sleeping...

A Song of Despair

by Pablo Neruda

The memory of you emerges from the night around me
The river mingles its stubborn lament with the sea

Deserted like the wharves at dawn
It is the hour of departure, oh deserted one 

Cold flower heads are raining over my heart
Oh pit of debris, fierce cave of the shipwrecked

In you the wars and the fights accumulated
From you the wings of the song birds rose

You swallowed everything, like distance
Like the sea, like time. In you everything sank

It was the happy hour of assault and the kiss
The hour of the spell that blazed like a lighthouse…

If brave, I’d have shown you the whole of my gushing heart, no less than tides of bliss.

Searching your eyes, I want for treasures lost on the ocean’s floor.

The sun, like a gold coin, drops, splashing this face of regret.

I blush in secret thoughts of you and turn away from the endless shore.

Wishes xx

By  D. Simone

“May Light always surround you; hope kindle and rebound you.

May your hurts turn to healing; your heart embrace feeling.

May wounds become wisdom; every kindness a prism.

May laughter infect you; your passion resurrect you.

May goodness inspire your deepest desires.

Through all that you reach for, may your arms never tire.”
