Campfire and Stars


Caught between gazing at


And stars.


Coyotes out in the beyond,

Their chorus echoing

In this

Clear night air.

The moon is hiding her glow behind

The mountain.

Neither here nor there;

I am most certainly under a spell.


In Between


You are the moon

And the the stars and

The air in between that touches me,

That fills me and empties me;

The gravity and the lack thereof,


And all the time.

Pulling me, freeing me.

My lungs, my heart, my mind and skin

Crave and weep.

Bliss. Rhapsody.

I want more.



She sighs softly.

Don’t give up on me.

Don’t give up on me.

I have been fire, I have been ice.

I have been everything in-between.

I’ve been the sun, I’ve been the moon.

All of those times I have felt insane.

I have been alone in the crowd. I have been alone with myself.

I have felt alive in the crowd.

I have felt alive on my own.

I have been the instruments and the voice;

The noise itself.

I have been silence. Nothing but silence.

And I have caught myself when I have fallen.

Don’t give up on me.

Here Not


It is late.

The falling moonlight has gone to my


The wine has gone to my 


No fault but mine.

I lick the salt on my lips which 

The air has placed there; sea spray.

Another night on the

Italian coast.
The waves lap at my feet as I

Sit here on the rocks.

It is not my fault,
This calling.


Always calling.

My mind does not comprehend

So I close my eyes and listen.

Tears on the back of my hand.


And I fight my longing desire to stay.

My very atoms scattering in the wind.

The deepness of me,

Soul fathoms spinning.



I am here yet I have never been here.

Everywhere lingers in my hair.

Followed Me


I have seen the moon and the sun outside my 

The same moon and sun which  have followed 

Me since

My arrival.

Throughout my life on many continents,

They have been

In the same big sky 

Watching over me.

Sometimes they whisper,

“From here you look so beautiful,

So tiny.

Why do you continue to

Believe  your 

Problems are so big

And your beauty so small?”

Many Moons And Suns


Many moons

And suns have come and gone

Since you embarked on this journey.

Your feet light with

When you took your first steps

Now have become heavy


Impatience and doubt.

Remember your heart.

Remember your heart beating.

Remember the blood coursing through your veins.

Such life. Such beauty.

The moon and sun are still there with you and

They will not give up.

You will not give up.

Remember your heart.

Remember your heart beating,

And open your eyes.

Open them fully.

Breathe many breaths.

Open your eyes.


Truly you know, if you wish,

You can fly.
