Refractions

Refractions Are You only found in simplicity Or is it only in complexity? Could it possibly be a “both” and an “and” That brings us to the touch of a Father’s hand Could it be my eyes are so close to me That I cannot see the good that sets me free? I sense the…

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…

Obstacles

Obstacles No matter these random obstacles The water still will find its way To its measured destination Without a sigh or marked frustration it will sing on until its very end Where actually there is not an end Just a cycle of deep and infinite mysteries  

Mystery

Mystery Light and shadow Reflection and reflections These can be a mystery They remind us there is more than materialism in all its disarray They remind us there is another world out there A world where darkness and light collide And the light always wins And even when our material world tries to block out…

Interruption

Interruption I have interrupted the plans of the grayling bird I sit here amongst the waterfalls, the creeks, the mountains looming The grayling bird he does his grooming But not without a wary eye on me He is confined to the tree Where he and his mate do flutter They twitter-twatter without a stutter They…

Philosophia

Philosophia It seems I’m always trying to write the greatest poem The world has ever seen Yet to me that is quite ironically impossible When I know what nothing means   This postmodern world is a quagmire Of needs and wants and thoughts But no one knows the reason Why for anything at all we’ve…

Sunday Afternoon Musings (Cloudless)

Sunday Afternoon Musings (Cloudless) My eyes look into the bright blue skies But they cannot do so for long The sunlight is too bright And there is no endpoint on which to focus My eyes keep wanting to see something they can grasp Something they can clasp Anchored into the sure, the known Yet into…

Kingdom

Kingdom I want to go back to the homelands I don’t even know exactly why My ancestry here goes back 200 years But my spirit still lets out a sigh A sigh that echoes off the cliffs of Dover A sigh that resonates with the pipes I sense my heartbeat swelling larger This longing flies…
