glass pieces

the tide is like a tunneled scope
deep within
where feelings live along a coral reef

of sin, and stone

Have you ever felt it, and just known?

Me too.

it’s like a mystical garden
in the depths of the sea

learning more about the pain and trauma of
tranquility, though

I always pause to breathe

into my heart, and look to the sky
where diamonds shatter into a thousand pieces of glass

as I contemplate
the love living inside the mystery of this life at last

alight and aflame

displays are on the screen
and behind them are clouds seen

as mysteries continue to pour into me

of a love lingering in the rain
specks of dust are always the same

tiny fragments of being, they came

to me at last
while I let my heart open to the possibilities

of you, my love
dancing into the night, alight and aflame

the pages of our story…

you whispered to me once, it came through
the trees, unseen, a beautiful thing

flowers, and turbulent troubles, left for the moment,
like leaves falling from the sky,
you remind me
of the

in existences’ cry….calling to you and me, a
new whisper seen, and felt

pages of our story, lived, loved, and magically
created, like two dancers, entwined
in a kiss so


takes on a new form, as realization dawns, and two
hearts are, together, as one,

a dance of mysterious tapestry

as the breeze comes through the window,
I hang hopes on clouds, running fast,
and furious, quite profound

are they

beautiful, translucent, and full of
magical movement, transcending this

light and dark, in a dance of mysterious
tapestry, woven gently, and carefully,
by the unseen, preen

shielding you and me, from the glean,
as the shadows begin to dance with
the trees

the flowers perk up, and provide a love

lasting centuries…
