THE CHOICE/S 1-13

1)
deer-thin
unmistakeable neck
arms and legs
heart-secret forever

2)
no breath-cloud
magic of
lidded eyes
&
golden bracelets

3)
shadow-mother
blinded by tears
heart traces
another
forward step

4)
mythical Isis
not posthumous
birthdays' candle flickers
Say something !
Do something !
kiss. kiss. kiss.
interchangeable with
love. love. love.

5)
expressing love
tender breath
confident and faltering
at the same time
listen. listen.

6)
playful eyes
spoke volumes
love laughed softly
moonlight shot with silver
again & again

7)
young Isis
bare-shouldered
found a new God
kicking pebbles
on the sands
tip-toeing
amongst prayers

8)
every moment
passed in
deepest reverie
a sense of
her voice
her hand
her touch
windsongs by the sea

9)
looking for traces
difficult words
sign-post says "Heaven"
borrowed time

10)
dream-catcher
wind-bells would
give voice
to the night
in rhyme
with the beating
of my heart
verse after verse

11)
flung against music
shadow-speech
succumbs to song
sleep gulped-down
morning too soon

12)
still harbour
gulls dress the sky
the body takes note
of every cry
every song caught 
in every thought

13)
girl-glow
outdoes sunrise
a thousand eyes
all hers
