Bright As You

Poem By E.D. Campbell

I will not hide from you
this morning
because when it should be
it's not so bright anymore.

You wear beaded shirts
and red smiles
all awash in the sunlight
of elsewhere,
and you can't divide
that kind of love.

If only

could you wish some more of
you to me?
not so much more,
I promise,
but with it we could start
a proud sun fire
to shine with all our own.

Today

we are wondering where the hours flew,
though many have passed and changed your face
and your laugh,
I am still in the same house,

Waking Up

I dream of so many things,
like black velvet nights
deep and stretching from
here until the end of hours.

Pink Skies

Tomorrow I will dance before
my grandmother's house
with my arms flailing in a
haste, a moan and many stomps

Peace With Me

lying silky on the silky earth
belonging where I belong
sweet as waking from a tender dream
and watching the dream roll on

Sister Say

Have your baby
pushing limbs of fire out at every corner,
watch one birth yielding another
