The word: Ephemeral

An approximate recipe for bread
Written on the back of an unused boarding pass.
Ingredients for something less ephemeral.

The word: Fret

In the Shouted Words of the Captain

Nailbitingly good,
Isn’t it? Don’t fret the wind,
We’ll be with ‘er soon.

The word: Voyage

A black woods. Water
With a silver hue.
I watched our daughter
Dance there, voyage through
An echo of song.

Brilliant lights and mist
Hung so soft they caught
Her shadows mid-twist.
She waltzed alone, taut
Frame following fate.

When white grew hotter
And water withdrew,
She cried out, clawed her
Way from parched sand to
Nothing. Left, but wrong.

Her clenched bloodless fist
Formed black shadows, fraught
From the heated tryst.
She flickered, forgot
Her name. Lost her gait.

I crowed, “Child!” So vain
My words turned to ash
And joined that dead plain—
So subtle. So brash.
And she just stood there.

The word: What if

Fall leaves and love notes
Dance by us as unsung songs:
Unheard. Delicate.

Forgotten, they play
Softly for those waiting on
Thawed frost and what if.

The word: Age

Grandma sits on the porch and hums
Her story.
It floats on the stardust they are.

The word: Happiness

A snowflake tumbles
into hot choc’late,
now ready to drink.
