the flame of hope and love…

heartbreaks are full of rain, and the setting sun,
is just the same, as senseless tragedies,
they came

knocking at our door, waiting, and watching
for us to bring the
thrum

of a life lived underneath the trim, and drum
of absence embroiled, and
shunned

weeping like the flowers on a midsummer morn,
we call to the heavens, wanting to know
more

about the reasons existence pulls the chains and
chords, while we fight against our inner-
discord…as

remembering seems like an eternity, we draw
on every piece of light left available, and
take it all in,
keeping
the

flame of hope and love alive, as we abide, and
continue to unwind
time

now…resting easy in our hearts and minds….

the love we feel deep inside…

looking to the sky, I see wisps of dreams pass by,
hung to clouds, and curled up tight inside

they drift and float, as the land and sea
continue to roam, we

search far and wide, and continue to try,
clutching at dreams, portrayed in the mirrors
magic display, seen…

a reflection, and refraction, of life’s mysterious
contradictions of mind, gleaned…yet

stillness continues to elude us, as we hang our dreams
on the clouds that pass by, and search for meaning
outside, still

as day turns to night, and
the clouds disappear from sight,
the light burning on the horizon, bright,
reminds us

of the love we feel deep inside…

all things beautifully configured…

rocks covered in green,
the misty between,
sitting at the edge of the unseen,
wondering what this mystery is to me…as

reflection gives way
to transgressions of the past,
and mind continues to flitter,
here, and there, I

sit quietly, watching and observing the
drama play out, without a shout…as

flitter turns
inside out, and brings with it some clout…now

slowing down…as

love arises from the center
of all things beautifully configured…

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light withdrawn,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…
