Deception

Long and heavy-hot, July-Doldrum-Days; Shag hazy thought as staggering, drunk strays; Desperation fraught in scorching-hot-rays! Instinct (not wisdom taught) seeks cool caves. Safe, in a hidden spot! As my long-lost slaves… I reclaim my thought, my icy-blue-memory saves, My present re-caught in isolation my soul craves. Rid of the fiery onslaught! By cool, blue waves… … More Deception

Lost

Mooribound thoughts in grey sliced by a jagged indigo wind! Shatter across the frozen tundra of the mind… Then conclude at the dead end of human wisdom. Gray truth of depression speaking again! Hopeless dry snow! Cold powdered emotion! Stinging the eyes and faces of all daring to come near, Offering the salve of cheerful … More Lost

Survivor’s Prayer

If I am still alive when the bitter cloud passes, may I not I not be found stubbornly clinging to the storm because I’ve adapted myself to misery. Instead, may I celebrate in sunlight as I embrace the sparkling new day the sun reveals. Let me move forward to clean up the damage left by … More Survivor’s Prayer

Married to Pain

There are moments during a rare warm Siesta Moon, When the pain ebbs and my body sings a softer tune. Sighs of relief! Pain gone brightens usual Agony Moon, My cruel lover who won’t let go sings besetting croon, Beastly howling like a lost coyote during a Dusty Moon! Our relationship began by accident, a … More Married to Pain

How Great The Fall

I’m sitting on the smoldering edges of a broken promise; Watching the institutions of a nation begin to crumble. Loved by some, hated by others,                        Relied upon, taken for granted; Rome is ignited; but it isn’t buildings that burn… A dense smoke is rising, singed in desperation! The slow burn of anger held inside… Like … More How Great The Fall

In This Sober Moment

When tragedy does a home invasion; When calamity’s thugs beat down your door! When the threat out there bursts into your safe haven; When first fear and then anger rise. There’s no time to think but only react and defend. This moment is the force which reveals exactly, who you are. After this trauma event … More In This Sober Moment

Sustaining Joy

Every day new worlds rise! And old worlds fall apart. I am told this is only, a matter of perception. What do you do when your world is taken all apart? Is good attitude, a positive thought of deflection, Able to override calamity? Or mend a tattered heart? Is faith only energy? Form of magic … More Sustaining Joy

Be Amazed by Grace!

Immersed in a day-dream, dawdling… Enjoying sunshine on my face… Treating myself to a summer coddling; Took for granted wind’s pace… Not noticing the changed force blowing, Or the storm beginning to race, In my direction; fierce tornado growing! A conflict I’m doomed to face! My predilection to hide; silent groaning… My fear with cowardice … More Be Amazed by Grace!
