being sure in faith


raindrops pattering into the earth

sure of kissing earthworms that sensuously squirm

and together teasing the soil into shameless

layers of skin clefts and goose bumps


pancakes folding into themselves

sure that the drooling maple syrup

will trickle gently into their veins

and wrap into the gooey warmth of a bite


playlists on repeat, forward and reverse

sure of humming melodies

waiting for the tap dancing of fingertips

consistent in response to tingling tunes


glances across the room, flirting the air

sure about the nothingness, and so

locking in memories into blinking eyelashes

saving each other from annihilation, offering intention


an oil lamp, gently falls in flames

sure of the black dusty sparkles

as much as it is of those impaired shadow patterns

yet it persists to creates a shifting gaze and perception


wishes over candles and cakes

sure the years are only a guess

dancing nevertheless into freckled happy faces

offering an audacious bite of delicious hope
