Amber Run

I often see beauty
Abandon, ecstasy

Pain in cruelty

Crashes into me


Confusion and pain

In the World again


Such darkness

This life of flesh


In time we will fulfill

There is time still


Tick Tock


The rhythm to the rhyme

Music of life beyond time

Beat by beat life still goes

In a rhythmic stream it flows


Step by step, day to day

A pendulum swings away

Back and forth, to and fro

All must come and go


Yet close enough for all to see

Me to you, and you to me

Today is today, tomorrow too

Only ticks and tocks, me and you

Just An Explanation


courtesy of:




I am a man of few words

Often trying to point

Trying to explain in staccato


Words may confuse

Often obtuse, without reference

Unless known, or felt


So now I open the book;

A gentle conversation:



A conversation where more is better

We all seem to be about more:




I see beauty in all things

I see love in what is unloved

To be unloved, means to me

That something was once loved


And remains


I see peace in anger and war

Without either, there is not the other

And I know joy in sorrow

For one cannot be without another


Bound as one


There is no separation in life

Tension lives in opposites

In Life itself, and beyond

And we are here, now


We always were


If I can open my heart to you

Forget the argument, the words

I can maybe see, your side

As we sit here face to face


Open and vulnerable


Though we disagree, we see

I look into your eyes

And you are me, who I was

And I understand


You do not need to


If only I can see clearly

It is enough for now

If only one knows the truth

Others will follow


At least it is a start.


Land Of Dreams

Nothing is, as it seems

Veiled and false

In this land of dreams


Beauty covers pain

Deeply hidden

No one is to blame


What you may want

Others become

Farther from the Fonte


Cut the subtle vein

The horror within

As life yields to pain


And awaken, please

From this play

You have the keys
