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…

Trivial

Trivial Without the daily occurrences There would be no poetry We all look for the grandeur There is nothing wrong with that Except we tend to miss the glorious Within the small, the tedious, the mundane For wisdom plainly speaks The greatest goodness is in the earth It is the poet who discovers it Then…

Another Other

Another Other I had to take a nap today I was completely exhausted From trying to be someone I’m not I guess that’s why some have to drink their coffee I guess that’s why some have to smoke their pot It seems we’re all one day thrown into this game This game where so very…

Springtime

Springtime It’s snowing flower petals at my house pinks, purples, whites all the while the sky is sullen ashen grey what a contrast on this day maybe it is what you see, or how you see it, that makes the difference

The Role

The Role How I see facts May not be how reality sees facts So what I see, what I experience Might not be the truth at all It might be a part of the play The key point in the drama Where the antagonist is in the midst There just might be a turn in…

Movement in Pi

Movement in Pi (π) It is a poet’s most dreaded moment When there is nothing to write The entire world within is dead Which makes all things without the same Even though the sun shines brightly Even though the grass is being mowed Even as the wasps and bees swirl around the window panes And…

Borderlands

Borderlands I sense a great chaos Churning and turning Roaring and buzzing Multiple ideas, and thoughts Lies and truths Swirling in a great pandemonium All within the confines of my mind An entire universe of universes Trapped within the rind Of a cantaloupe   I am about to burst asunder Spilling all of this new…
