Variable

Sky gray and blue
Shining sun and rain
Anger and happiness
The mixed feeling of swirling energy
And lethargy
Music playing is a worn rut
Dulled senses
Waiting…
Waiting…
Ingredients and recipe

Melted Hearts

Melted Hearts

Icicles fell from the sky
Caught my eye
Tore it away from the green grass
Words like rain
In the leaves of books
Turning away from photographs

I dreamed of life
I reached for the end
It’s just too far away to touch
I push the wind
A snowflake lands on my hand
Like a friend
Too unique to repeat
It melts my heart

Castles constrict reconstruction
Conflicted in function
Defend or attack
Words like changing weather
Easy to clean
From the soft smooth leather

I dreamed of truth
I reached for the path
It’s just too hard to know where to turn
I check the stars
A firefly lights the way
Like a friend
Too kind to repay
It melts my heart

Silent Discovery

Giraffe

Silent Discovery

You can drive me wild
But you have to drive me
Back home sometime
It all comes back to the place
A heart holds
A heaven hangs over us both
Take this blood and these bones
Take these haunting undertones
Take these heartstrings and play
A song of silent discovery

Flower bouquet looks so alive
But it will die someday
Wither away
It all goes back to the earth
The sun holds
A cloud hangs over us both
Take this rain and these stars
Take these heroic avatars
Take these wounds and pray
A prayer of monumental joy

Remembering The Future – A Secret History Poem

Remembering The Future
(A Secret History Poem)

What memories are these
When they haven’t yet happened?
What glorious times, my love
When we look forward upon them
And backwards to them
At the same time?
Your face and my thoughts of you
They do not change
I know from experience
They cannot change
They will not change
The dreams we have created
In the morning of our years
With our powerful toys
Will last several lifetimes
Which we will live soon enough
In time

Mistakes

image

Making a mistake is a part of you
You’re an accident of history after all
The odds were stacked against you
From the time your parents had odds stacked against them
So your mistakes shouldn’t come as a surprise
Even humanity is a series of mistakes
Committing a series of mistakes
Blundering its way to greatness
Accidentally

Torch

Floating Lanterns

Torch

This hallway leads to madness
Every door opening to pain
Every window to howling wind
Marching bones emerge from every closet
Monsters rise from under every bed
Full moon
Stars vanished
Night twisted into eternal darkness
Save the light coming from a kind heart

Bodies

Bodies

Ashes spread across familiar lands
Born of fires long gone out
Purifying heat cleanses spirits
Nourishing the earth
From death comes life
To be burned again
