Longing for touch

IMG_5157

Wading through the waters
softly stepping knee deep
with wonder unknowing
what lies in wait
will each step be closer
to heaven
to salvation
or the whirlpool of desire
dragging us down
breathlessly alone
the heart knows no fear
love has no equal
life longs for itself
and does not surrender
without good reason
touch who we can
through words and deeds
across miles
by smiles
and wide eyes
loving the ways we may
still hope
still touch
still love

Wandering Stars


If unerringly simple
the deeds do
unfold
or quickly and quietly
pass
the lambs
and the shepherds
would fold into flocks
of wandering, wondering
stars

Reading Immanuel Velikovsky’s ‘Worlds in Collision’ and could not help but recall this poem I had written many years ago …
