Then And Now

past-singular

Once there was a time
So urgent, so fierce
I sometimes remember
How my soul was pierced

Now I try to see
The magic of it all
But it was only a moment
I can no longer recall

Stoic

I have travelled with a map
I became lost in this sea
Where charts failed
Floundering

Sailing into unknown waters
Adrift upon the tides

I learned of unknown lands
I found shores never seen
Where tales were born
Resounding

Sailing, the back broken
I now reside

I visited and left
I found no solace
Where legends promised
Fists pounding

Sailing berthed for now.

Till Death Do Us Part

til_death_do_us_part

Ancient promises

A vow meant for one
From who we were
To who we become

Never meant to bind
Two to one
But for one alone to find

The whole is the sum
Of choices made
Forging what we become

Stoic

 

 

 

 

Finite Lines

seneca

From here to there
Life seems
Beginnings to ends
Stitched seams

We were, and are
Then not
It always seems
Lives forgot

From one to another
We dream
For another’s hope
Life leans

Stoic

 

 

Petals All

TT-5051-Black

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

Stoic

 

Christmas

Frozen Canal With Crows.

 

Crows wheeling in frozen dawn
Through branches along the lake
Every day rejoicing
Without limits of one born

This Christmas morn
I smile, alone
I am still here, still here
And rejoice of one born

Alone I feel joy, because I know
Every breath is a gift
One more day here
Maybe a little more worn

And I give thanks, always
For the chance to be
For others, in Grace
Though tattered and torn

Stoic.
