oblivion’s mist…, Published at MasticadoresUSA

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, oblivion’s mist…, 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.

oblivion’s mist…

words cut from stone, it is your love shown,
resplendent and full of life,
calling me, it does,
twice

once before time began to run, like the rivers…

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

our final prayer…

the city slumbers, while the giant, along, lumbers,
taking respite, when, in times of trouble,
the mechanical birds, circle in the air,
speeding more than is, a trifle,
fair

spreading wings of love onto the land, protecting the visage
of the wear and tear, it is the darkness
prepared,
and
the light
responding
if they dare…

battle imminent, patrons vigilant, while across the land,
warriors gather, battle plans scrawled,
even as some
drawl
and
make
the last call

needed, as love and light prepare, some scared, others
ready for the nights, and the heights
of desperation
bared
to

each soul everywhere, they take formation, gathering under
the wings of justice, let ourselves stay present to
the life-affirming
sustenance

of the land, and within it, the love of our hearts,
together, sheltered, as
we whisper, this,
our final
prayer…

our hearts open

a cabin retreat, along a placid lake, tucked in-
between the mountain pass,
a valley covered
in shadows
and

amid the sky, entranced…

mirror images, advance, wanting to be one,
breathing into the same intelligence,
not seen, only ever
present
to

the sheen, and magnificence of this moment,
taking in the splendor we’re
afforded

we allow our hearts to open, as love is displayed
so generously to everyone,
awarded…

In response to the WDYS#109 prompt from Keep it Alive, by Sadje.

a mix of glass diamonds…

time slows down, just like a train
entering the service station, as
light refracts off a mix of glass diamonds…

cut differently all,
as colors bleed through them,
and out the other side,
pouring love into the universe, by design…

we watch

with rapt awe and attention,
as love is transmitted via the chrysalis,
through the atmospheric tension,
and into the hearts of every part of living creation…

a magical black hole

Pixabay

a dream,
mind conjures, as
intuition blossoms, and
reflects upon
conditioned aspects
of time borrowed…

harsh

as they seem
we grew through
the pain and agony…

trials and tribulations
abound, as we recount
each moment, and, at times, drown

in the feelings
swallowing us whole,
like a magical black hole….

spinning vortex,
light withdrawn,
senses expand, reaching
out for a hand

to hold onto at last…

breathing in life’s energy,
we wrestle with time,
and the nature
of the agonies
written upon
the sands
of our collective destinies…as

light shows back up,
speaking in the language
of love lost, pain healed, and
compassion given out, to all those that shout,
curse at the skies, and wonder why…

as deep inside,
we recognize our face
in the collection of pictures
we see in the mirror

of our humanity,
as we (re)adjust within
and get ready to again begin…
