Dreaming Through November ~ Epiphany


You don’t realize
How deep
Past damage seeps,
Until you try to
Move on.

B.J.H. November 2013

Stories 1995 (my second published work)

A candle flickers

Someone sighs

A hawk screeches

Something dies

The princess in the tower stares at the moon

The prince who would save her

Hangs from a noose

Wolves prowl the hillside

Where campers sleep in peace

The old woman in the window

Has been dead for weeks

A pigeon lands on a bench in the middle of Central Park

A cat jumps out to catch it and stop it’s beating heart

I sit by my window and write by the light of the moon

These sweet poetic stories with love from me to you
