Posted in Leaves on the Poet Tree (Poems)


This cable which has caught F-16s on
aircraft carriers and kept them from
careening into the sea is now the
keeper of me.

The 40 feet of space between you and
I is filled with nothing but air and
your words which hold me like a

I am suspended in the web of your
encouragement and love. If I needed to
decide between these wires and you and
I was given a choice, I would choose
your voice.
