Dandelions to Babes

Out the door, I pick up the pace. Time to play…no time to waste. Down the yard, tightrope the curb, As I zipped up the road, not a “hello” was heard. Along the path such a pretty site, Dandelions, Dandelions like a sea of white. Where did I go you must be starting to ask, to […]

Defeated

Just when the sun peeks the brightest, an eclipse takes aim right for it. A smile protecting what’s left, I take a knee.

By the Salt

Crusty eyes wake excited, when mornings are usually slumbered. Sun stretching, this early. We leave Theresa with a wave, that smile. You and I now, a trip of bond. The mist chills my face… his dory crashing against the lap. Posture held strong. My imagination animated by the salt. Few words spoken but enough was […]

Piece Of Your Heart

A long time ago we promised a connection. But we’ve found ourselves adrift, in the other direction. Alike by the bloodline that flows deep within, difficult to conceive that we were both born as kin. I’ve questioned at times for a true explanation, only blame in retort, without hesitation. Our bond left abandoned, now way in […]

The Hillside

          A hillside where I played, now lies dormant, unused. Laughter no longer carries in the wind where childish breath was once contrasted to the pitch night sky. The grass, still worn, but no longer from play for there is a gray hue of neglect that looms across its blades. This […]

One Ray of Sun

Just one ray of sun can melt it all away, make it right, make it ok. Embrace like before with meaning and feel, something I forgot was actually once real. The static between can easily be gone, takes simply understanding, not brains nor brawn. Bring it back from where we left it in the dark. Let’s […]

Look Back

How do you keep walking forward without wanting to look back? Your self-made contempt must justify it. My journey through hearsay. Birth to beyond being explained, while I’ve never been posed with a question. Imprisoned by pride with that broken conscience, do you get to stand trial for your faults? If excuse could no longer be […]

Hidden Smile

If you see me sometime and I don’t look your way, I beg your pardon, just not myself today. My smile is hidden, my laughter’s gone quiet. Contrast to normal, I mean not to try it. The struggle within is a battle some time, feels like a mountain that’s too high to climb. It’s lonely in there, just me […]

The Shine of Your Sun

My silhouette has faded, the lines have all blurred. Struggling within, with what may have occurred. At what point was there a turn that was made? My shadow eclipsed and now has no shade. Feels like a prison but though there are no bars that confine me, yet I serve my own sentence that will forever […]

Little Lady

Little lady, what’s your hurry? Up the road in such a scurry. Never you mind, I will get there on time, so please, you need not worry. I’m off to church, my faith to search, I could do this every day. So here I go and as you know, tomorrow I’ll be back this way.
