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






Until my last breath
My last gasp
I will be here
Trying to explain

The simplicity
We have lost
In the mêlée
We maintain

And to say Adieu
As I go from here
I will shed no tear
As I will see you soon.


Stoic & Buddhist



Seeing something bigger

Beyond you

Is humbling


In perspective issues fall


A life so full of beauty

Calls to one and all

If we but heed the call


And I am here


Witness to creation

A world forlorn

Every sun and moon rise


A heart reborn






A sigh revealed

Too long covered

Virtue and sin

Melded to one

Earth and sky

Taste of life

And knowing is

The return of love





This moment eternal

Past, Present, and future


Never in time

Not infinite, as distance

Only here and now


Stringing thoughts

One to the next

A line is drawn

From here to there

What never was is

An illusion for us


Birth, Living, Death

Always in time

Just not now, someday

Yet, if all of life is here

If it always was

Then maybe, just maybe


We were never born

Never as we thought

And never die

All the universe

Contained in this moment

Everywhere is now


So we come and go

Thinking we may know

But never what was so.

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



courtesy of :


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
