Solitary Refinement

Rough I ride the road to reason,
Changing what was thought to known.
Though I do not seek the journey,
I can walk this world alone.

High I fly on wings of mettle,
Finding, past my heavens flown,
That, deprived them, I keep flying.
I can live this life alone.

Building Bridges

They built them with their happy sighs
And whispers under sheets
They built them out of reaching hands
And snow-brushed winter streets
They built them over angry words
And over river tears,
They threaded wire memories
To string across their fears.
She stacked hope stones with shaking hands
And eyelids sneaking looks,
He poured concrete encouragement
And bought blueprints with books.
They built them over years of time,
Through life, with all its ridges,
And crossed to reach each other’s souls
Two lovers, building bridges
