Living On The Surface

surface

 

How much was my deposit?
My life a week older
How better off am I?
As I get older

What are the means?
Of living here
When what I give
Causes more fear

I am tired now
Please let me rest
Give a little time now
I will be my best

I finally see now
What it all means
Spending a lifetime
For others means.

Through The Years

66cd54ff-f01d-4e36-9ba9-0bcd15d4ee72

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

In The Playground

e897b531aa30fa460bc1e79e2c2ce634--carousels-pull

Many things may never change
A merry go round year to year
Spun so fast we fall away
In a spinning world of day to day

Scuffles upon the monkey bars
With every year we show the scars
No recess here in this playground
Lessons taught but lies abound

So I will take my ball back home
The game was sometimes fun to play
Bruised and broken I have found
Little fun in this playground
