tonight’s wind

you roar
and then you whisper

thank you

for trusting me
with your thoughts



just once
i want to know
what the moon has to say
about us


roses are rebels

they face each storm
head on

and yet
they always return

perhaps this is why
they so often

carry thorns



music makes me
i am mortal


in awe

while i know
the science behind
the twinkling of stars

just for this moment

i will feign ignorance
simply to enjoy
their silent hymn
