My Tree

089dc5d8224bc01311a48e821ef4bd82

There was a tree
A long time ago
Where I sat

And I promised
I would return
For just that

Worlds and miles
Gone in between
Now I go

To the beginning
After so long
To sit below

Exhale

milky-way-2695569__340

Endless eternity between breaths
The void plays
Beyond tomorrow’s and yesterday’s
Today will stay

I will sit in wonder among the stars
Where silence stays
Beyond tomorrow’s and yesterday’s
Finding my way

Rockies

Spindrifts, 14,000 feet at dawn
Ride a Devils Backbone
Where few have ever gone

A step across the great divide
The Continental Rift
One foot on either side

Thundering voices all around
Wind, granite, sage
In wonder without a sound

Sights beyond words, I have seen
Awed to stand before
These places I have been

Stoic

 

Through The Years

In time all things fall
Insanity softens to understanding
It was not that, ever
Simply a Truth, beyond its time

Embraced, reconciled
Never apart, but finally accepted
Maybe known before its time
I was, am, that I always was

Now to feel more, and think less
Silence is no longer boredom
It never was, yet was unheeded
I am finally enjoying the play
And I applaud

Stoic.

 

I AM

Across worlds, a blink
Child to man, a breath
A product of what I think

And there is tenderness
Sometimes quite enough
Often falling from the caress

Never leaving, nor arriving
I am here in this moment
I am here, always, loving

I AM

A Tree and Me

A cluttered world
Nothing is finished
Everything begun
Distraction forbids

A tree beckons
A simple thing
Touching, seeing
Two as one

Face to face
Not back against
No distractions
Just a tree and me

Stoic

Autumn Rain

cat-rain

Her gossamer shroud
Draped so loosely
Droplets fall as tears

The gathering dawn
Will drive away
Traces of dark fears

In reverent silence
The world appears
Never twice the same

Of grayscale hues
To colours unknown
Daylight lays its claim
