Theresa Czern

Beach Meditations III
I walk the sandy beach of Halloween
giving honor & remembrance
to the past the losses the loves
the deaths the griefs

I watch them all wash away
The fused image of the earth
the sea
the ocean falling over
covering me

I see all of this as
I walk along the beach
my beach on Halloween
listening to the waves
the ghosts
the shrieking cats
black flying bats

I feel my feet in grainy earthly sand
glistening with grog seaquins ribbons
as the earth sea sky follow me
watch me
I continue this lifelong journey


each day each life
each love each kiss
each death each night

Snow Whirl

I walk out into a snow world
this March evening
like the 'paperweight world' I often hold
shake in my hand
so beautiful
so breathtaking
now someone else
shakes up the snow as it whirls & whirls
playfully around me
and my world
I want to know who you are
you who shake my world
leaving me in a whirl
