Lost Treasure

Poem By Lee Ann Schaffer

The shards of light
That delicately
Shimmered and dazzled into
The distance
Were not enough
To draw the trajectory
Of your life.

You spurned
Ethereal diamonds,
Fiery and sweet,
As though they were
Cunning glass,
Replete with shine
And void of value.

My head had howled
With the words whirling
Through it that night
As we sailed swiftly

Spider's Song

Within a small spider's dream
Are we what to us we seem?
Do we really matter much?
Are we gods he longs to touch?

A Teacher's Prayer For The Lost Children

The child who hides behind laughter
The child who reaches out with tears
The child who no one looks after
Who runs away when someone nears

Growth, Overgrowth, Undergrowth

</>A vine grew up around me.
It sounds fantastical, I know, but
It's true.
At first I liked it:

Black Ink

I take my pen
And outline each of the stains
My tears left on the paper

Craving Amnesia

I wish I couldn’t remember

The resonance of your voice,
Your silly laugh,
