Sleep

Ode to Our Cocoon

I love that moment
between space & time — we float
in our own cocoon

Ode to Dreams of You

I saw you in a
dream — my favourite part of
the day is sleep now

Ode to a Shared Pillow

It’s the song you play
We lay on the floor sharing
a pillow & warmth

Ode to Silence

& when we sit like
this, side by side in silence
the world feels serene

Ode to Counting

how many ways to
say I love you — I’ll count &
tell them all with stars

Keep

Ode to Romantics

it could happen: a
beautiful phrase uttered by
dreaming romantics

Ode to Possibility

opportunity
missed? no — what’s meant to be is
not fickle, fleeting

Ode to Your Pen

does your pen move with
thoughts of me flowing down your
heartfelt fingertips?

Ode to Lips

my lips have over
a million nerve endings &
you’re on every one

Ode to Feathers

I share with you: songs
& books, touches & soft looks —
feathers flown away
