The Songbird
Ohio, USA
August 22
I am a mechanical bird. I fly, dive, and flutter about things, curious, ... yet -- I am but a machine. I am the product of the times I came into. All is mechanical. My clockwork works - exactly. You can see by the meter of my words that something is precise about me. I know not why; I am not the Originator of these things. They only come to me. They tick, or they whirr, or they may, by chance, chime. No matter - I hear, and respond to them. I myself am quite delighted by these Missives that come my way, and my dearest love is the language I came in with, English. It isn't the words themselves; more - it is the very capability of being able to iterate what I have been given to feel.

The Weary Moon, ERH

mistress of feelings,
both felt and denied,
impetus of waves,
seas, oceans, and insides.

wistful dreamer,
and maker of truth,
she dances and plays,
sweet Luna Moon.

not always appearing,
but never lost,
we set sail by her,
and return by thought.

always there,
unspoken, yet seen,
she whi/… Read full post »

to speak your Truth does not a challenge make.
it only emits the things you held inside, waiting to say.
for if it’s Fine, it can wait for its time to emerge.
and it’s okay if you’re the only One who knows the power of the Words.

Reach Teaches

Money gives you Place to maneuver,
but actions speak louder than words.
You can Lord over, or project to whenever,
but what is gambled is also what is splurged.

Just as words not spoken can try to be example,
some get it, follow suit  - -  and some do not.

Life Is Balance~Alight Is Allowance

seek not for time
that went before;
seek only it’s portal,
the new, opening door.

all that comes
holds evers and afters;
anything gained
is forever captured.

embrace, distill,
and carry it forth;
change and meld
by each new source.

enough is best,
the present yields;
think as/… Read full post »

girls are like flowers,
they wrap petals around their dreams.
so pink, lovely, soft, moist,
they entice ~ come, see.

they direct their sweet pollen
to make their amoratta sigh.
the fragrance there, only to tell him,
he alone is the one in her eyes.

Sweet Life-Ouroboros

i am afforded this space, afforded this time.
i have been allowed to know what is, and is not mine.
others come in and out,
as they please.
but it is only because of what i, myself, release.

i can never know what i look like from outside.

Who's .. In There?

We Live Within

I just want -- someone - some time - to know me.
Not always some someone around, there to show me.
To let me do things my way.
To allow me to have my say.
The finesse of feeling I know I could impart
if I could just/… Read full post »

It Echoes

the Universe is perfectly designed.
every facet, every refraction, is perfectly aligned.
interdependent and resplendent,
gleaming, steaming, alive, unrepentent,
what is allowed evokes the vows
that unfold with time.

we say the things to our Selves that are the true.
mostly unuttere/… Read full post »

Life's Echo

uncontrived, the things that exist,
but you actually, never see.
the layers, inside the layers.
that which is - and what will be.

muscle. sinew. balance.
a tiny eardrum leads your way.
one thing askew, you forget what you knew,
and another reality - takes its place.

  The Dance Of Interplay

we do what we do;
we say what we say.
never really knowing
the eggs we lay.

words are impressions
of what lies inside.
and your immediate reaction
should never be denied.

hatchlings, each,
nuance, endeavor.
truth, proof.
we reach, measure.

Life Gives Pause

how far will you reach, to reach another?
how much will you allow?  how much will you bend?
if you are given pause, then .. listen.
do you want to stop?  or do you want to mend?

you can only allow another to be their own Self,
hear their words, and/… Read full post »

The Passenger


people are only as beautiful
as you allow them to be.
they only blossom into what you imagine
if they are astute enough to see what you see.

no one knows their own Self;
we are inter-dependent, alone, unschooled.
but by the way we are treated,/… Read full post »

~ strength ~

strength is yielding,
giving pace,
rapture, capture,
allowance, place.

knowing one’s own,
ability to live.
the plenty of grace,
with nothing but give.

for strength is fruit.
yielding, soft.
a peach, belief,
knowledge, thought.

nothing is an island,
eyes, closed.

Inner Sight

what impetus Others are to us.
what they seem is what we believe they are.
we hear, we speak back, we step in,
but we are often left with scars.

what does it take to have truth accepted?
what kind of person does it take to hear?

Life In Belief

Each succession is the inevitable progression
of where you are in Time.

You know now, what it’s like to be dead.
And ~ you know also, what it is to be Alive.

It all centers on a lynchpin.
Some thing, or circumstance, comes at last.

And you begin to perceive that/… Read full post »

prison is not a deterrant.
it’s only another space from which to function.
you meet others in there of the same ilk,
pick and choose, at your own compunction.

if you are an aberrant stranger,
living outside the law,

The Allowance of Balance

everything in Life is commeasurate.
what goes up - eventually comes back down.
and the further you go up, into elation,
the further you fall, when you hit the ground.

lovesick. heartache. the balloon you knew.
the impetus, the floating, the very thought.

Love's Net

imagine a girl who’s been tucked away.
singular for many years.
self-imposed, of course, to learn some things

A Poem For The Neighbor Kid

The Neighbor Kid

Look at me, L.J.
I said No.
Shhh!  --  Come here now.
Why?  Because I told you so.

You’re only this big now,
and you have got to be taught.
Look at me: I am bigger -
I say what you can, and can not.

Portrait of Laurie Colson

Portrait of Laurie Colson

rage. caged. corralled,
defiant reliance
on all she’s made.
her eyes speak passivity,
but with wanton knowing.
bones, exposed,
but strong; flowing.
wisdom from within,
history, injected.
fame, deranged,
rearranged; deflected.
