Breaking The Habit

Ad infinitum a never ending sequence Lying in the wake of repetition; habitual frequence To wonder predictably all the same things is the unconscious Dauntless and diving, freefall thoughts thriving; to want, I want this Faultless and driving, the sea calls out trying; a wave, reaches for the sky ..

Passing On

Rustling leaves along the smooth red fade of pyracantha  Hummingbirds hover gracefully over trees Fast wings will fly away with my mind chanting mantras But the melody of my words are lost in bees  Pollen to which I’m allergic they gather and bring to me Mistaken because I am no […]

Tapas and Wine

We were laughing “Tapas” What was it that we found so funny about that word I wonder now as I lay by our favorite window seat The rain tapping at the window As if someone is calling to me From somewhere far off Splaying along the translucency Like fingers spreading […]

After

I don’t think you quite understood Pocket watch with cracked quartz Hands still Can no longer reach for you Frigid heart Like a deer in headlights Lips tremble Shaking tea cups create nervous encounters Strangers hold hands When the imminent will overtake them Love blooms as deep as the rabbit […]

Seedlings

All times end This time is ours Until it’s not Now and then Like cherry blossoms Fallen gone A moments bliss Life goes on Our beauty but a season Existence without reason Blissful smiles we need them Lamenting cries; the grieven The future we pass on To never see new […]

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, […]
