"Lace & Pearls"

You're more than silky woven lace
or beaded strings of pearl.
You've style and grace.
You're not some mousy little girl.
 
They see you frail and  fraught.
But your spirit's flying high.
Always got what you sought.
Never one to comply!
 
With all the burdens that you bear,
has anyone y

"BEFALLEN"

The sun it casts it shadows.
Even in light there is some doubt.

Marching to the gallows.
Eyes darting all about.
 
Heavy, the weight of his head.
Upon the block it rests.
Like so many others
that the body shed.
 
They're pulling on the string.
Their hand upon the chord.
A sweeping, final swi… Read full post »

"Only A Memory"

The wind is sending whispers.
She's as pliant as a willow.

Her hair, tickling like cat whiskers,
soft and downy on your pillow.
 
You lay there restless dreaming.
Windows open, blankets shed.
A stream of light is gleaming
from the moon upon your bed.
 
Oh isn't this heaven!
Even if it's but a dre… Read full post »

"Callow In The Shallows"

You kept your arms flailing in the water.
You wore yourself out with each wailing fling.
Thrashing about without direction
slapping yourself upon each never-ending swing.
 
I couldn't bear to see you struggle.
I couldn't look; I closed my eyes.
A man so callow in shallow waters
who i… Read full post »

"Life Is An Oyster"

Life is an oyster that you must shuck
to get the pearl.
Love is a ballroom that you must dance
to get the girl.
 
Pride is a baby that must suck
before it weans.
Sorrow is the dust that you must sweep
before it cleans.
 
Opportunity is a goose that you must pluck
to get at the golden eRead full post »

"Take A Bite Of It"

It's a never-ending circle
like the sun up in the sky.

That goes on without you
spinning circles, feigning shy.
 
It tugs upon your apron.
Frivolously likes to play.
When did you get older?
Wishing for your younger days?
 
Each bead of sweat befalls you
like a sticky lollipop.
The clouds are… Read full post »

"Diamond In the Rough"

Don't scoff the tiny morsel
as just another grain of sand,

that easily slips through the cracks
of your trembling, rigid hand.
 
Why don't you learn to cup it
and hold it loose and light?
It's iridescence shall dance for you
against a dark-pitched raven night.
 
Through the crafters le… Read full post »

"Behind The Emerald Laurels"

You have left me in a whisper,
in a glance among the daisies.

But I have stored your essence.
Spirit of your soul, wandering lazy.
 
In its idleness it floats above
my hurt and my pain.
It dances with the angels now
and sings in sweet refrain.
 
A globe of burning amber
fills the sky upon each mo… Read full post »

"GOOD MORNING"

Oh the suns up over the horizon.
I can see it clearly, rising.
Its color amber hue.
It winks at the morning dew.
 
Somewhere in the meadow
I see buttercups yawning yellow.
They're happy to wake up,
wagging in the wind like a tail on a pup.
 
There's a hand upon my shoulder.
Must be magic inRead full post »

"DRAIN"

You can sit there in disdain,
with your bitterness.
But I'll refrain.
I won't wallow
in the pain.
It's a bitter pill to swallow.
What would it gain?
 
I'm sorry that you will not deign
to walk inside of my
terrain.
You won't know happiness;
love you constrain.
Pity, love was not meant
to contain.

Remember the days of excited laughter?
When we believed in happily ever after?
Whatever happened to those innocent days?
I'll never forget our youth or carefree ways.
 
Don't give up without a reason.
If you look you'll find something pleasing.
Little drops of rain can melt the icy snow.… Read full post »

"Brave The Climb"

Climbing up that mountain crest
I pay no mind to take a rest.
Weary as this journey goes.
Caught inside its wretched throes.
 
I march right on without a beat.
The wind, it knows not of discreet.
I confront it head on,
With all its fierceness and its brawn.
 
I know not of its fateful end,Read full post »

"RISE"

I will not look; I will not question.
I'll fall off in any direction.
For too long I've been standing still,
against the wind, against my will.
 
Time to move forward into something better.
Can't get what you want unless you're a real go-getter.
I'll catch you and the world by surprise
when I take… Read full post »

"RISE ABOVE"

I will not hold onto this pain much longer.
Granted that it has made me stronger.

If I could pour it into a measuring cup
I'd drink it all to the last drop up.
And no matter how course it went down
It felt intensely profound!
That's what makes us grow and mature,
the ability to have the strength… Read full post »

"I WILL"

Given a challenge.
I will try it.

Something stands in my way.
I will get by it.
As for convention.
I will defy it.
Given the truth.
I won't deny it.
Faced with the enemy.
I will ally it.
Something needs assistance.
I won't pass by it.
Doesn't work once.
I will retry it.
As for my opinions.
I will sta… Read full post »

"When I Look At You"

How can I look  at you
with such damnation?

I myself, have so many limitations.
I never claimed to know the answers.
Inside we're harboring a type of cancer.
 
When I look at you
it's as if I'm looking in a mirror.
And when I look at you
I can see myself much clearer.
Yah, I'm still… Read full post »

"The Gift Of Wings"

I thought that of love was in giving so much.
There's healing power in each loving touch.
Never was I the one who would know
that the greatest part of love was in letting it go.
 
My love was a cocoon holding you inside
to protect you from harm from the cruel world outside.
But by h… Read full post »

"Beads Of Discontent"

String the beads of discontent,
hanging heavy on a fragile string.

Watch them fall, each one a loose segment
of hopes and dreams and summers and springs.
What does each one represent?
 
See them scatter on floors of yesterday.
Count how many  of them you lost
as you were going merril… Read full post »

"An Empty Chair"

I never knew that emptiness existed in a chair.
I never knew until I sat across from it

and you were no longer there.
I never knew an empty chair could hold so much.
Never could it. After all it didn't hold you
inside its arms to feel your touch.
I never knew the weight of it,… Read full post »

"Travel The Great Unknown"

Whenever I find myself down
I pick myself up off the ground,

And turn myself around.
I find a new direction.
Make a new connection.
Start all over again.
There'll be no limit nor end!
 
If you sit and curse
you'll make the situation worse.
Nothing this produces
except more lame excuses.
Gotta make a change!… Read full post »

"You Have To Want It In The End!"

You've an empty head to feed.
Your old wounds profusely bleed.

It was myself; didn't I extend?
You have to want it in the end!
 
You've your heart to protect.
I have lost all self-respect.
It was myself; didn't I extend?
You have to want it in the end!
 
You've your pride, no show of m… Read full post »

"PULP"

Why feed these sated burdens?
Ones not so deserving.

Ourselves we're only hurting.
When others plates are so self-serving.
 
I've been so badly mangled.
Like spaghetti I'm entangled.
The fork I can't uphold.
It's contents have been rolled.
 
When I empty for someone else.
I leave nothing for… Read full post »

"The Bells Of Spring"

Well I hope we don't "slumber" too much this winter. Put spring in your step and you won't regret the path lined out in snow. HAPPY THANKSGIVING. I am grateful to all of you in different ways, for what you have taught me with and WITHOUT words!

Sad to say but you were born
without a reason,

In just another year,
In just another season.
They gave you nothing
to believe in.
So you ran away
with your hopes and dreams.
 
You didn't know
if there would be a tomorrow.
How could you break through
all of your sorrow?
They gave you nothing
to believe i… Read full post »

"A Heart Unsung"

A heart grows old,
clutched in a fisted hold.

Master of its own control.
But lost its soul.
It maybe whole.
But it never lives
until it learns to give.
And when it gives
it breaks off parts
which makes more room
for more broken hearts.
 
A heart unsung
has lost its tongue.
It has not… Read full post »
