Intricacies

 Intricacies This is amazingly intricate Accidental it cannot be Every tiny fiber making it’s small contribution Every contribution critical to the mass I refuse to see through a looking glass Whose lenses are shattered by mere reason That is why even in the deadliest season One can see that beauty exists Beauty lives Beauty speaks…

Chasm

Chasm Sometimes living poetry Is like looking into a deep, dark chasm I see nothing I feel nothing Yet I know something is out there In there, within the darkest depths And suddenly and without any explanation There I just step Falling, falling, falling Into a place I know not To a destiny I know…

Slumber

Slumber That time between the worlds, secession Where sleep is dream and wake is a question Where our souls get closer to where our spirits dwell And oceans wander and the deep does swell Where light and life and echoes cease To be just yearnings and are released There the call of wonder comes It…

To be continued…

To be continued… I have embraced everything meant to destroy me I’ve shunned everything that gives me love The recognition of it all isn’t helpful I think I might just need a death, a burial In order to see something new Maybe this blind man needs to view The sunshine that starts the new day…

Brown

Brown I’ve noticed that the earth is brown It seems that it could be the color of down Yet I sense it carries something much more A place where there is an opening of a great door Where earth is a gate to heavenly places Joyful gatherings and beautiful faces simply spring to life and…

Kissing Sun

Kissing Sun Everywhere I go Everywhere I see People moving, walking, enjoying life Why not me? They seem to know who they are What they’re made to do Just saunter along through the morning dew Until you sleep at night Every thing is all right But not with me. Maybe the problem is I’m not…

Celebration

Celebration Can you sense new dreams arising? Can you feel a radiant hope anew? Don’t you feel there is a new day dawning? Can’t you hear the morning dew Singing a new song? A song your heart has been singing all along Yet it seemed there was no one else to hear it But now…

Mountain of Smoke

I stand at the base of the mountain of smoke No thunder, no fire, no trumpets Just stillness, quiet, wind In the distance soft An ancient flute begins to sing Just stillness, quiet, and wind And the sound of God walking in His garden The opportunity rises again Once again I am given a choice…

Sunset Morning

Sunset Morning I step into another sunset morning Where my eyes are closed And I see the dreams The place where I don’t know what anything means Yet I know that not knowing means everything I hear the rhythms of distant stars They awake the heavens and Dance does meet With the sounds of the…

Glimpse

Glimpse I have seen a glimpse of angels Right here on the porch This morning eternity was in the creek Meandering through time’s torch While those of the highway overpass Went by toward their destinations All the while they still went by The creek moved still in contemplations It always has, it always will So…

Inspiration

Inspiration Sometimes I wait on inspiration to write Sometimes I can’t wait any longer That’s when it is called “work” And work it is Grimacing over every word and idea Fighting off the demons of criticism and lack Wishing that the winds would come Lifting me into the heavens Where everything is easy and light…

Daydreams in Nightmares

Daydreams in Nightmares Sometimes I just stare out the window I get into a place where there is nothing at all Nothing permeating my mind except what is in front of me Even that slips off into a surreal mist I see the birds sunning themselves Drying off after a good bath Finding the crumbs…
