Saturday Morning

float-cross-dive-water-peace

I’m begging for stillness.
For calm at the centre of the storm.
When the dawn comes, let it bury me;
let it swallow me whole.

~ Michelle Tudor, from Excerpt

Lightly child, lightly

light-sunlight-morning

In the morning
the light flickers—

every place it touches is unnamed.

I forget
my silk-spun dreams & losing heart.

I am open. I am soft.
I move into the silence

but I know I can’t stay.

— Michelle Tudor, This is Not the Place
