beautiful afternoon

I search for you
in tears

in the afternoon

a complex
land of emotion, are tides
of becoming, and of unbecoming

something far more than

a heart
filled with choice

a powerful feeling

in the noontime sky

like so many bells

it’s their time

to move on
leaving behind

a ghost
of what once was

to learn more about
all that is

beautiful afternoon

I would like to thank Barbara Leonhard, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for publishing my poem, Twilight State. If you’ve not yet read it, you can find it here. Thank you!

A quick update on me; all is well. As I write this, I am currently in Bend, Oregon, at the Oregon Workforce Partnership (OWP) Conference, which has been educational, and fun. Next week, I will travel to Yachats at the Oregon Coast for some rest and rejuvenation. I love to visit the Oregon Coast in the winter, it’s less crowded, and always so beautiful. I’ll share some pictures with you upon my return.

Wishing you all a gorgeous coming week.

All my love and blessings,


Jeff Flesch
