I used to write every day under the pen name SilentDream. So much has changed since then.
Only sharing what's made it to the page very recently and going forward, which may be far and in between.




This one was inspired by Cristofori's Dream by David Lanz

fermata



you read like hesitance

and a pause that builds before collapsing into more silence
as my fingers trace your lines that steadily fade...
Thus I rest on a page that won't turn.

your hold was like resistance,
staccatoed breaths pressed against my sighs
Though my hand hovered near your heart,
it won't yearn.

and I swear I forgot to breathe
when I thought you'd touch me



Herein, though, there was promise -
desire tumbling into a swell. There's
still promise and there's hope within a pause.
In your silence, I hear
me - my measured breaths, slowed
exhalation and, therein, I swear I'm
lifted regardless.

This was for a picture challenge




Siren



The darkening shades
of torrential rage slow
time; the air is still.

You lower your eyes
whilst the storm in mine
dampens your weakening will.

Shared this picture in a group. Some came up with a response. This was mine:


I never once felt your lips
writing “perfect” on every
inch of me.

Dozing, I’d feel your fingers
scripting verse
across my back.
I was meant to pay attention
and read your touch, aloud…
I even smiled.

Yours thoughts, in that
moment and gently felt,
were still elusive.

I wondered if your lips
would ever follow those
whispered phrases.
Writing verse
across my shoulders
and down my spine.

I was meant to be kept
waiting, yet relax,
within your pause.

Your silence, in that
moment, was deeply felt.
I heard your distance.

I may have lowered my eyes
But wait for a moment
Linger in that space I've created...
Match my breaths
Reach for my hand
and step into my fear

Hold me, for a moment,
tethered by the tips of your fingers
Exhale once I match your gaze...

I'm here. I'm back now.
I think I'm ready.

Written for a picture challenge



brilliance

I’ve been comfortable with muted days,
shades of cream and sepia ombré.
Memories fade, organically shifting.
Details lost. An essence remains.
And I’m drawn to blurred watercolors,
muddled blues and whispers of sage.
But I long for the pause and the sigh
after tasting the brilliance of promise.
