Cicadas call now,

10,000 steps to nowhere,

“Will I find myself?”

I stop. This moment

dances on petals–my heart

unfrozen freezes.

Blossoms, Diedré M. Blake

Let me hold you now

as sakura blossoms fall,

welcoming spring.

When Now

Trees will remember

our failures, centuries

passing like seconds.

Yesterday and Today

I walked three miles

under a red umbrella,

shading summer’s heat.

There are certain things

I have yet to taste.

Where is my voice now?

Buried in the yard, howling

through layers of dirt.

Memories of Dirt

The woods became cars.

I no longer hear the birds

outside my window.

 

Should I smile more now

or less because of progress?

Summer burns my feet

 

as I walk barefoot

on asphalt, trying to live

memories of dirt.

Poetry: Black Drops

Black drops

Cold black drops, rain now,

cry now, then sleep, dream not, cold

black drops, cold black drops.

A Haiku: I Struggle with Naming Things

ferite

I often wonder if, where, when it is okay to tell my story. 

 

A rabbit, or anything

It’s a strange thing

no one teaches you to be

or calls you human

 

from birth, as you die

I wonder if it’s alright 

then to be a bird,

 

call yourself Sparrow,

maybe then watching rain clouds

wouldn’t feel lonely.

 

You see, I was born

to a regretful summer,

or at least Thursday.

 

I’m sure I cried,

or laughed, then learned to stop

 among other things.

 

I wanted to be 

a rabbit or anything 

other than me.

 

Only one question,

unspoken, fills the seasons.

Will I be human?
