cascading horizon

I wake up to you
you remind me of the brilliance
of afternoon sunsets
and

of morning dew
cascading

over a horizon filled
with pain, and with healing

a presence of colors, ambiguous
yet just enough
to

fill the space
left

by the absence of your touch

My time at the coast is always precious to me. Early morning walks along the beach provide a space for deep reflection and contemplation. This year, I stayed at a small little motel right on the oceanfront. Amazing views from my room, and easy access to the beach, where walking for miles is possible. Beautiful, invigorating, and peaceful.

Wishing you a wonderful week.

All my love and blessings,

Jeff

Placid Sea, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, Placid Sea, is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

Placid Sea

The moon, a placid
sea, reflecting back

a mantra
of meaning

watching the sunset
along a coast, depleted and
dry

tears leak…

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

Time’s Ashes, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, Time’s Ashes, is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

Time’s Ashes

I drive in circles
manifesting

given to me as a child

it’s these coattails of peace and love
I ride

transcending pain, a realization…

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

dwindling
in the night sky
these eyes…
