endless delight… Toni L.A. Cross


soft footsteps

tentative echo

of a sojourner’s soul

finally home to stay

tired eyes raise

hands lift

as if on their own

such wordless delight

this ending

is no ending

but a beginning


an endlessness

of bliss

and completeness

true reality

at last




mention me… by Toni L.A. Cross

mention me

   in your thoughts

      in your prayers

          in your whispers

               and your tears

hear me speak

   in the quiet

      when the raindrops

             fade away

don’t forget

    always remember

        to mention me




my muchness… by Toni L.A. Cross

have I lost my muchness?

a shivering coward am I?

am I me or am I clueless?

an unidentified girl is I?

be I brave or be I spineless?

a jellyfish of a human is me?

have I lost my muchness?
