Revoke

Revoke Today is a day of mourning A day of celebration Today my childhood died From youth, a liberation From fantasy, fallacy To life, reality From hopeful nonsense To quiet trust I think I may I think I must Keep leaning into this moment This moment right here with me No past or future liberty…

All Encompassing

All Encompassing Love is the greatest of delights,the most unconscionable of painsIt rides mighty horses across the universe’s plainsAn all encompassing sea of stars and planets and spaceQuarks and mesons and traceLove is the reason why I breatheThe reason why I dieIf love was not in the midst of my being,here In meaninglessness I would…

Singing River

Singing River I often read great poetry Then first cry out a woe is me I can never seem to attain to such beauty Such wisdom So dark disdain is born from comparison An offspring I need to cast in the river – Here I stand on the shore The river in motion Quickly heading…

The Voice

A blast from the past. Something I wrote seven years ago that I thought I’d share. Hope you enjoy 🙂 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…

Unless the seed….

Unless the seed… Remember your passions First I have to find mine Those things that made me come alive Now are dead and gone It isn’t age that’s passed me on It’s living life itself – I found this book upon a shelf Just sitting there, dusty, old Yet still it had life deep within…

Raven

Raven For so long For far too long I have dwelt amongst images Ghosts Imaginations of my own making Without a voice Without another opinion And we all got along just fine But after all these years I see this wine Has been poisoned with the art of sorcery A deep magic has consumed my…

In the Beginning

In the Beginning If one is supposed to write what’s inside Then how does one write emptiness? How does one write vacuous? How do you write nothing and void? – It seems that is what is always at the beginning – The greatest power hovering, hovering Humming, singing Music is always in the midst it…

Life Signs

Figure 8’s

Figure 8’s I wish I could write something Anything Anything to make a difference Anything to lighten the load But nothing I do really matters Nothing I say changes anything It’s not words that transform our lives It’s love And I’m fresh out of that There was a rush on it during the pandemic The…

Quantum Leap

Quantum Leap What’s the universe expanding into? When I go to its edges Climb out a window  Open a door  What will I step into? What’s this all for? Where will I be? Who will I see? – Will time be there? Gravity?  Stillness? Or rowdy celebration? – What’s the universe expanding into? What is…

Distill

Distill Is there a place in the garden Where I can walk with God Is there a place where He tends Where the weeds and overgrowth Do not choke out the life Or is this survival of the fittest Simply the way it’s to be? – Because the weeds and the overgrowth are life They…

Embrace

Embrace I’ve spent my entire life Trying to be like someone else Trying to get the attention The applause Of all who were in the room But all those people went their own way The room is empty now So silent So quiet And here I am alone With a person I don’t even know…
