the sands of time

I walk
on the sands of time
feeling bereft, and
out of line

with natures
progression,
I, stop, and digest
my vision quest

and, call forth
the winds, a true test…

of our ability
to align
with life’s requests

one step in front
of the other, feeling
the granules beneath, feet

on solid footing,
even when I’m unsure
of the current efforting…as

realization dawns, and
the withdrawn, now gone,
is transformed into something more

than I’ve ever done…

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, something altogether unbelievable, is now available at MasticadoresUSA. A big thank you to, Gabriela Marie Milton, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

something altogether unbelievable

the iridescent
lamp
casts a shadow
over the carnage
seen, within the myriad
of moments
taken away from me…

I would be honored if you would go here and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

feel free, and just be…

the tree grows taller, and
sometimes I feel smaller
than life as it manifests before me

moments like these
come and go, we know,
and yet, as they arise,
we continually strive…

to know
the answers, yet,
will we remember to abide…

instead
of fighting
against the current
we feel inside, let it subside

and know,

this energy
will carry us
toward
our final destination, a ride
for the ages

are we not all sages?

I know not, yet
won’t let the conversation
drop, because

it’s not
about dropping,
or stopping, more learning

to love

more than your heart
has ever known
the capacity for…becoming

like the flowers,
and the trees, did
you know they speak of thee…

every day, watching
as we run around
limiting what we see,
within this dream

yet, we speak, and, they see
instead, maybe,
feel free, and just be…

an ode as silently known

Photo by Koushik Pal on Unsplash

heart centered,
beating
strong,
while the body
begins
to break,
from the myriad
turmoil,
cast about
during the time
we’ve been drawn out

from
our misery

and
preoccupation
with all
life’s reasons

looking
for answers,
we search
high and low,
and,
ask everyone
we know

yet,
what
we get back
doesn’t portend
to all
we’ve been told

confusion
sets in,
and all at once
we lose our grin

and,
become grim

though,
as we hold
tight to the
knowing inside

we,
begin
to contemplate….

and,
inside
our heart’s
desire,
we find
the key, and
unlock
the mystery
of the self
that inspires,
and is made of fire

exhaling,
we regain
a loss
never so,
and, give thanks

as
our grin
returns,
we nod
our heads, and
thank
our hearts,

in an
ode
as silently known
