The silk of waking

To dreams yet dreamed

Linger in the sky

Adrift in gray clouds

Carrying visions of possibilities

That yet may be

I am a retired teacher, enjoying everything that retirement means. In addition, I have been active in the LGBTQ community since I was four years old and marched my Ken doll with all his little Ken accouterments to the big metal trash can in the yard. Yes, I dumped Ken, along with said accouterments, into the can and slammed the lid on. My two Barbie dolls lived happily ever after.

  1. Oh Annette, your lovely words reminded me of this old poem of mine… 💛

    Cream and Honey

    I dreamt of what might have been
    Dreamt of what I have not seen
    Snow on top of lover’s hill
    Cream filling my empty till

    I had forgotten what could have been
    Forgotten what I had already seen
    Flowers on top of her wooden bier
    Honey kisses, and my empty fear

    I am dreaming of where I have been
    Dreaming of what no-one is ever seen
    Snowflakes silently melting in her palm
    Cream and honey, my lover’s balm
