Waiting

 

A pale

silver-gold

wintry sun

caresses

the walls

and strokes

the furnishings.

 

This late

November afternoon

is silent

hushed

and still.

 

Yet with one eye

half-open

as if waiting

for something

or someone.

Waiting

draped-in-white-by-mara-light

 

I have always been here

at the periphery of your vision

in the back of your mind

on the edge of your imagination

the stranger in your dreams

the darkness in your soul.

 

I have always been here

waiting

for this moment.

Blue Room

in_blue_room_by_barbaralanza

Here

In this blue room

With black and white, steel-framed photographs of the sea. And paintings of Venice. And of dancers.

Where my ancient acoustic guitar waits quietly on her stand

Where I tap tenderly at this keyboard with its reassuring sound.

Here

In this blue room

Where I have spilled my dreams and realities onto white digital pages. And exchanged words with distant lovers.

And whispered profane prayers and dark instructions

Into the inky night.

Here

In this blue room

I wait for her.

She will come.
