Unspoken Promises


abstract texture complex maze

In a smoke filled room,

her eyes settle on mine,

reading the latest scribblings from my soul.

What phrase is she weighing so closely?

Will she read the bits



the margins?

What does her smile say?

Recognition dawning, her eyes tell a story

of love and compassion with

Love Tree

the soft whisper of passion,

heard only by me.

Unknown to me, but driven to find –

night creeping in.

Lost in a maze of blank walls,

save some lonely words, fading with time.

My soul now drawn


unspoken promise.

Nature’s balance unfolding

to a smoky love song…

In a smoke filled room,

my soul released.

My secret cleared; my heart given.

Love is universal, universally experienced.
