Sometimes all I feel
Is nothing at all
The emptiness
Encloses closer
Than the warmest hug
Than the brightest sun
Than all things good ever could
Leaving me tired

What sayeth the wind,
When air moves no more?
What sayeth the waves,
When storms stay ashore?

What sayeth the forest,
When trees no longer grow?
What sayeth the glaciers,
When there is no more snow?

What sayeth the people,
Of mistakes they’ve made?
What sayeth the children
Of the price they will’ve paid?

What sayeth the Lord,
When pain is so abound?
What sayeth the world
When it can’t make a sound?

A quiet place

Rain trickling down

Windows left unwashed

Right outside the sound

Water brackish; yet clear

The storm not stirring

Darkness overhead

Calm and solitude below

Finally a break

Hand-like light reaching

Towards the water’s surface

Reflecting on the coast

A peaceful place to rest

Water between mountains tall

Finally seeing the light

Reasons don’t seem so dull

Off to the races
step by step
Falling behind
Until in the end
The midpoint
Is all I’ll
ever reach
The sad truth
Of too many lives

Into sleep

May 28, 2018

It’s time again to go to sleep

Over the moon I’m counting sheep

Off to a land of lives I’ve lived

Workout a plan I travel.

Into the darkness traveling fast

Visions of the future made of the past

Into the darkness I shall rise

Rest my head and shut my eyes


May 27, 2018

The Stars are out of reach

I fell far from my high horse

Humility may resurrect me.

Sweet dreams

February 28, 2018

Goodnight sweet lover
May the stars kiss your soft lips
And whisk you to sleep
