Seeking and Hiding

A couple of "ing" poems from a series that I'm writing this year. Just a glimpse at the inner journey that is unfolding as I reach out into the world (seeking) while I stay safely tucked away (hiding)...


Millions of stars in the dark night sky

I pull one down to stir into my chai

Warm cup in my hands, I peer through the looking glass into the just-beyond



The smell of pre-storm ozone in the air

Curled into the dark safety of my lair

Few know how to find me in the secret cave where my fierce heart guards its treasures
