Stars may die

Stars may die

before I lift up my eyes

and see who you are

or I could discover now

that you are the bright star

in my heart

The kind question

The kind question to ask
the stranger
who has arrived in your mirror
is not who are you
or why have you arrived
before me
with my eyes and face
it might be
have you remembered
my name
the true name of who I am
which you have forgotten
so many times before

My Christmas Poem

A hundred of this

two of that

the season turns

who can count the leaves

a thousand of this

one of that

a son of god

who breathes and speaks

of love

the seasons turn

the leaves fall

pain and darkness don’t go away

but sunshine waits

under every leaf
