Crest

Crest Waves of anger and depression Slapping against my being like gray waves On a black sand beach Too hot to walk on Too dreary to sit and watch So I’ll move along and check the swatch Of this new satin and silky fabric This stuff that is supposed to hold it all together This…

Beauty Among Us

Beauty Among Us Amongst the earth Amongst the stones Beauty blossoms And carries on The truths that we all know within A simple saunter, a gentle whim Is often the only thing we need It’s good to know It’s good to succeed Yet the only thing we really need Is to love and to be…

Sense Eternal

Sense eternal there seems to be a place where I live yet I cannot seem to dwell there I cannot seem to breathe the air there all the while smoldering in this sordid heat and dryness, dark and dust I live in a land of angels and oceans Streaming rivers, birds in flight Mists dancing…

Recalibrate

Recalibrate Sometimes when I feel like life is just one hassle after another I have to stop and look at places like this Realizing that there are things and places that have been here so much longer than a moment Things that will go on in their beauty for so much longer than I will…

Violet Still

Violet Still We rest here Violet spirits amongst steel gray chains The interlocking of humanity Amongst the confines of metal earth We seem so ethereal here Because we are Bringing beauty to a place of woven barriers These so called borders That do nothing but impede our way Yet our beauty will always have its…

The Voice

The Voice I dream of days, I dream of ways Where I do not have to enter into this incessant wandering This amassing of graves between worlds of reality and fact And the realms of reality and truth These things I have wrestled with since my youth Seeing the dragons get all the stronger I…

Alight

Alight I’m ready to float right out of this universe Alight onto another Far more distant than this one Yet closer than the breath of my lungs I breathe the same air as the warlords, the bright ones That spread love and peace and happiness and battle The ones that make their swords all rattle…

Lost Creek

Lost Creek A brooklet is a wandering poetry Constant in its direction Yet fluid in its ways An ever changing constant, aware Of the fickle winds and weathers In these moments all these come together Creating the magnificently peaceful masterpiece   This constant power is being released Changing every rock and form The sunlight becomes…

Push Ups

Push Ups I hate pushing against this planet earth Straining with all my might No matter if I work all day and night Its spinnings never seem to give way Time never, ever seems to sway One micron from its mortal purpose Though I’m getting bigger and stronger My strength could never stop the traveling…

California

California Welcome to the land of the poppies Welcome to the land of the sun Come in to the land of the waves and the sea To the place where life is lived on In a way where we all get to live it Despite our differences, our opinions We welcome the blue of our…
