*****roaring Sanctuaries

Poem By Debora Short

It was during the reign
Of
Letters
And
Words
That those two
Alpha lions
Learned
They
Were
Connected in states of truest grace
By way of the Sun
In heat and light
Their radiance,
Brilliantly
Danced
Into
Purest souls
Yet they
Danced
In circles
Rarely
Acknowledging
One another
Nonetheless
Their
Growing
Light of truest respect
Glimmered
In
Their
Distant
Souls

(Roaring Sanctuaries, Tennessee
December 30,2006)

Wispy calligraphy draws me into
The wintered blue that eyes and so lightly

Veils her shoulders in fine–twigged taupe lace

Sands of time, sands of home, and sands of love
Sing such lovely songs to my well traveled

As if they were amulets guarding my soul

For the large flock of tri - colored blackbirds
