Disinterest

The morning mists swirl A foggy cloud Obscures the objective of the day That is, assuming there is one Maybe it is just sleep Roll over and surrender to the disinterest Yet, there is fight There is always fight The fight remains stronger than the mists So forward I march

Limit the Limitless 

So often we seek to limit the limitless  Contain it in rules, in words, in a book We assigned a gender to the divine  God the father, God the man  God the person?  God the human … hmmm   But is that what God really is?    Eternal, infinite God The holy, the divine We... Continue Reading →

Insignificant

The Universe, so infinitely vast With seemingly limitless possibilities Encapsulated by the impossibility Of really understanding it at all   Particles, atoms, molecules Matter, it all matters The tiniest of details matters Cosmic energy maintaining the great dance of existence   And we, the humans, on our little planet, our corner of it all A...

The Light is a Window

Through the darkness A light invades Uncomfortable, unwelcome   A shining light Interrupting Our comfortable slumber   The light it appears Is a window Small & difficult to see through   Yet, even from a distance You can see something different Something beautiful through the window   The closer you get, the More you can...

Toe Waterfall

So there you are Thinking, worried About the "why" Maybe even the "how"   And here I am With the “is”, only the "is" It “is” raining “Why” does not concern me   I hold my foot past the porch A liquid crystal lands on my toe A solitary universe of hydrogen and oxygen It... Continue Reading →

The Age of Bones

There are times that I feel old Tired, stiff, ready to stop Though I’m not quite as old  As my bones would have you believe   Sure I could be carbon dated An accurate figure assigned As my joints complain Creaking and cracking   My playful, mischievous mind Tells you a better truth Regardless of...

Domain Change

While I was snoozing My dot com I was losing  I suppose that’s OK  You see at the time I didn’t think I had anything left to say 

After the Long Dark Night

After the long dark night The sun beings to rise Freshly illuminated with morning light Truth revealed as darkness dies   Ominous shapes that lurked in the dark Releveled to be trees, new and alive Fresh growth sprouting from winter bark Hope springs as life continues to thrive   Sometimes we must hibernate To build...

Life is like a river

Life is like a river The current always flows The further down stream you get The faster it seems to flow Yet at times On a gentle bend It appears to slow Almost stand still Then when you look back The past seems so distant Children grow, too quickly Bodies age & get creaky Life...

Is the music dead?

Is the music dead or simply quiet? Has inspiration left or is it just still?   Internal conflict Or lack of interest? Undigested pain Or focus lost?   The creative soul Enters dryness But not darkness A new frontier     The wasteland wanderer Lost in the empty Is seeking a jungle of inspiration  ...

Cologne and Cigarettes

Cologne and cigarettes Each one hiding the other A masquerade of internal struggle Conflict of the soul The creative quandary   The philosopher poses life's questions The expressions of doubt and hopelessness That spark songs The faithful lover, hopes and Writes of a future unknown   Singers of songs Writer of poems Giver of hope...

Merry Christmas

He is Emanuel; God with us He is with us when we crest the mountain peaks And He is with us when we are in the valleys At the peak His presence seems so obvious In the depths it seems like He cannot be found And yet He is there The future will show you... Continue Reading →

What If?

What if, we the people decided to be the change? What if, we the people declared we would be the hope? What if, we the people decided that we are better together, regardless of race, nationality, ancestral origin, political, philosophical and theological differences? What if, we the people decided respect and cooperation were better than... Continue Reading →

The Joys Of Aging 

Ligaments stretchAs joints ache  Strange cracking noises  Are greeted with groans Random roaming pains Everything requires more effort  More care You must warm up to get out of bed it seems  It's strange, as life gets a little easier  It becomes more difficult in new ways Ahh the joys of aging 

Focus

You will find what you focus on Focus on the negative  You will find the bad Focus on the positive  You will find the good  Sometimes you have to step back Be honest with yourself  What are you looking for? It takes a conscious decision  To focus on the good But it is worth it for... Continue Reading →

I Believe

Some days life tries to make you quit Just give up Jump in the river And slowly drown in hopelessness I will not quit I will not change or bow down I will hold on to who I am I believe in hope I believe in miracles I believe in love I believe that relationships... Continue Reading →

The Hope Of A Brighter Day

There is always hope you know Even in the darkest of times There is the hope of a brighter day   This is my hope No matter what the world brings our way That tomorrow will be brighter   I will choose to believe this, always For life is better that way Let us not... Continue Reading →

The Launch Codes

The storm clouds of chaos Grow ever stronger Ever darker   Decency is an outlier Restraint, compassion Distant ideals   I used to laugh when they talked about the end of the world Armageddon in our lifetime - yeah right Yet this is no biblical instance You may as well burn it Some that claim to...

The best is yet to come

From the darkest of nights Dawns the brightest of days The best is yet to come   Fear is real, tangible Yet I will not listen to it I am no longer a slave to such things   Hope is my dawn Faith is my armor A new day, is what awaits

Real Life Cowboy

Living on the trail Camping by the fire Sipping in the evening Singing old cowboy songs Life was easier Or so they say When all you had to do Was survive But the cold night air Would eat at your bones And the tension and fear When bullets or natives approached Tell a different story...
