guide unknown

painted hills and magenta skies
call to me

to see
all that I once believed

as lollipops arise in your eyes
a special place in my heart

they do reside

inside
the love that goes out with the tide

and mingles with the salt and stone
a guide unknown

to those that know, a place called home

until the sun

I stand in line to buy lemons and limes
while reminiscing on the
times

enthralled and divined
while feelings keep coming up

I’ve tried to stop…

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

cloudless drifter, Published at MasticadoresIndia

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

cloudless drifter

oranges and limes fill the sky
a scent reminiscent of another time

when love was like a drop of candy in the winter
and the fields were dusty

a cloudless drifter…

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

Rooted

Photo by Omar Ram on Unsplash

I hike the trail,
while also knowing
the trail hikes me, which
though it may seem like a paradox,
is just another example of the oneness of
this world’s orthodox.

As we move on the trail,
there are wonders
to behold
as a whole myriad of greenness
comes to life
before our very eyes,
and, we begin to see why

it is that this world,
is so full of pain
and pleasure both,

though

there is another way
forward,
if you are so bold.

Remembering
that all of nature
is a reflection
of all that we see
beneath
the layers
of memories and ideas
we’ve held onto
out of necessity
and, in part, grandiosity.

Notions
of what’s come before,
become magical connections,
just like the trees roots,
as they make their necessary
preparations.

Rooted
in the unknowing,
we become like the tree,
both flexible,
and deeply anchored,
in the One with the knowing.

In response to Writing Contest by Soni, from Soni’s thoughts.

A Reason

Strange as it can sometimes seem,
Yes, just like a dream, everything is in motion
In this life, just like it is supposed to be.

Everyone plays their part, from the very start, even when
We second-guess, and are confused about
The hidden art, which conjures such scenes
Of mystery, confusion, and, yes sometimes
Delusion.

Living inside of the unknown can be precarious,
And even downright gregarious and, at times,
Even quite nefarious.

Yet, living inside a dream isn’t always as
It seems. There is a rhyme and reason in
Every season, even when, maybe, especially
When we are searching for a reason.
