In Anticipation

Sable Swan

in anticipation, i watch, i wait;
watching as the horizon
magnificently emerges;
emerging to mercifully escort
me away from pain and misery;
a pain and misery that
always seems to find me,
always seems to latch firmly
onto me;
in anticipation, i watch, i wait

A Place

Sable Swan

struggling to see,
fighting to be unseen;
a living whisper hoping
to be heard, maybe even
understood;
a breathing nomad looking
for a place to rest, a place of
acceptance, a place to be herself
