Micro Poems

Short poems with profound meaning

floating bubbles…

I tell myself 

what will be will be 


a splash in the pond

breaks the silence…

almost dawn 

hospital window — 

the moonlight 

all over her scars 



the path of healing…

one day I stay in the ashes

the next day

I am a phoenix reborn 


waving goodbye —

the blossom falls apart 

in the light breeze
