Fantasize

Often with a pair of headphones on, I will sit in this room listening to oft-melancholic music. Strange for someone that has been referred to as having accomplished so much and revered for both my so-called patience and calmness. I’m not sure whether my time spent gathering knowledge has been […]

Far Farm

On the far range alone Behind thistle and haystacks bundled neatly into cylinders Lanterns light guiding home To miss a little; long for a lot, whittled wood into thin air Small objects of the mind are Memories. They can’t be bought but we do share Statutes of limitations demanding that… […]

End of The Line

Rubbing mitts together on a cold morning Awaiting the desert sun with puffs of warm breath Longing forever without warning The imminent will come, the past will have left Rosy cheeks where you waited Laughing as I ran and barely made it Youth is as foolish as forever But that’s […]

Unsent

It was pointy The sharpness of a pinprick; needle For the various mistakes that I – would often try to mend Delightedly The wincing of a forced smile; feeble For all the time borrowed that I – will not give back again I am sadly Reading letters from then A […]

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 […]

Who?

Through your eyes I see The reflection of a silver microphone in a black screen You said you wanted me To say something about it What was it that you wanted me to say No image on the tv gave only the sound of silence The only way I could […]

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 […]

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 […]
