Decades Review: “Waking Up Together”

I’m excited to share that Decades Review has published my poem, “Waking Up Together,” in their second issue. You can read it there or here:

Waking Up Together

Barely awake, we float
across our bed like clouds
over undulating dunes
and valleys of lush loam.
Sleep-mist lifts over parched lips,
and our feet move like nomads
toward the warmth of each other.

Our most secret places
have buried their keys
inside the swirls of our fingerprints,
and we slip into each other’s hands
          promising suggestions–
unopened letters carried by envoys
          returning to their homeland.

Front Porch Review

My poem “The Light Within” is now up at Front Porch Review. As their website says, “a front porch is where we, young and old, congregate; where we assemble, gather, mingle, congeal, where we get together. And once there we speculate, pontificate, prevaricate, and expostulate; occasionally we speak words of universal truth.”
