Letting Go At Last

raindrops slide,
stop, tremble
and then let go and run
down the window
in surrender
to the relief
of turning loose
their death grip
on the window pane.

beyond that
water-veined glass
tall trees lean
into the wind and then
whip away in relief
to give up and be ravaged
in smacks of wet windy
winter lips kissing in
moaning fury.

on the sill, here
with me inside
tendrils trail up
up and away,
straining against
the heat and reaching
into the cool air relief
bringing great incense
of smoky espresso promise.

and I relax,
letting go at last
like the rain
on the window,
like the tree
in the wind,
like the steam
in the air
just letting go.

    • Thanks Kat…I am truly grateful for your friendship and presence in my life. I treasure your regular encouraging words and kindnesses…it is really quite odd, how the visions just show up and I sorta “hear” what to write as I watch, and then also when I write the “wrong” thing? I get this weird niggle-nudge inside and then I start to mess around a bit and then eventually it just clicks in.

      Every single time when the right phrase comes it sorta shocks me, and it always delights me…even when it is a brutal poem about nightmares like that one I wrote this morning when I woke up from a horrific dream

      • You just amaze me with the way your words flow, your phrasing, all of it. Being in an awful dry spell like i am right now- i truly appreciate your writing. 🙂

    And This…
    is talent.
