Too fast (poem)

He rushes even when he has ceased to move,

He rushes in his stillness, so fast I fear I’m only seeing the echoes of his presence

Like a star, I can only see where he was

And from a distance.


Wishes for them

*For Karina and Naomi

I wish you candy coated dreams.

That you would find sweetness in the darkest of hours.

I wish that all your wishes would have wings,

To fly and to return bearing love in the dust of their feathers.

Simply, of all the things you are

and all the things you ever will be,

The very first of them was God’s gift to me.
