Clothes in the Dryer

I tried For a long time Cried A loss of mine Everyday I read the labels and their instructions You and I pulled by cables at first introductions The fabric of my favorite tee shirt Was now less tightly woven than my heart strings We laughed and smiled a flirt […]

Morning Countdown

Lavender Lavender Lavender The smell of her a reminder of how only in memories I will find her Time blurs the images of those times and as I age I grow blinder All life has a destination preset but on a different timer Some countdown on clocks; others in sands […]

Beauty in Tragedy

Another morning without your wise words or small quips Witty-minded cracked lips dry humor that needs ChapStick Every word read and wrote magic If you told me it wasn’t so, I simply would not have it Havoc, pathos and fears written tragic Never could get past those moments of a […]

Death of a Writer

Wasn’t it your voice, where did it go Lost in the noise, overwhelming echo The past becomes a melancholic musical Somewhat unusual to see you gone It’s now your funeral   Between disappearing and deceased The feeling is still mutual Sadness for the loss of something beautiful Words can’t express, […]

Be Kind

Be careful, what you say can be profound Caution to the wind where the words lost are found Unknowing, a mystery behold, futures unfold Destiny a stepping stone, virtues of patience and gentleness Dancing feathers buoyantly float; lightheartedness Darkness, some feathers black; calamuses inked heavily Write the words of thanks […]
