Lessons In Love



We rise we fall
Through it all
I hope you see
What you mean to me

As one may suffer
Another will offer
Our Love and Hope
As we help you cope

We will be there
Heart’s that care
So you can sleep
Your memory I will keep





They say I am unstable
Flitting through life
From here to there

They want me to explain
My drum and fife
A tune they cannot hear

So I skip and jump
To a beat of my own
A song they often fear

So I write my words
Often in a poem
Yet still they are unclear





The Dead Spot

Walking Into The Abyss

Courtesy of: RiseEarth

There is a moment rarely found
Between hope and fear
Where silent eternity abounds
Unborn, limitless and clear
Where worlds and words fall away

This is where life is truly lived

Stepping from the edge of thought
The abyss greets one and all
From paths always fraught
To embrace the dead spot and fall
Awakening in the dream

With nowhere else to go




Petals All


In the seasons of all
From spring to fall
All things grow

Blossoms may fade
In greying days
All hearts bestow

No ravage of time
Can ever define
Or quell the fire

Flowers of all man
All rise and stand
Beyond all desire

A rose will always be
Life born free
Yet never to be

Eternal as it lives
Over again it gives
For all to see



In Translation


I speak or I write
You hear or see
Not said or written
To you from me

Words are of my past
I can say no more
Yet you understand
Your want and more

Inflection reigns down
Scavenged meanings lost
Building your own story
No matter the cost

Yet I will always try
To speak to a heart
One that never forgets
Why we are all apart
