The Old, Wise Owl

Somewhere in the trees tonight Though hidden, sits an owl I hear it through the window, ask “Whose spirit guides you now?” “Memory is not a haven” “When darkened, is the past” “Safety lies ahead for they” “Who fight until their last” Words he spoke, this owl outside Intent, I listened in I gave them … More The Old, Wise Owl

Nod to They

A raven sits outside this hour Teardrops turn from sweet to sour Dark descends, though they don’t cower In this dead of night A little horse may have no fear But naught is there a farmhouse near Clock strikes twelve; midnight we hear As bells chime in respite ‘Tis a valley; pit, to some Housing … More Nod to They

No Matter

“I is best guard dog around you, okay?” Alright, I’ll listen to that “I protect people from bad things today” Sure thing. But you aren’t a cat. “I know. But she’s not got paws just like me” Yes she does. Just look, they’re right there “Sure. But they are not mine, don’t you see?” “I … More No Matter

Life, Circa 2022

Sand through the toes A pier, standing tall If it’s not on a social Did it happen at all? If you don’t share everything You must be a recluse If life is fun, clearly You must put it on loose Don’t get caught up thinking Through thick, or through thin “Influencer” lifestyles Are how people … More Life, Circa 2022

Blossom

I know you’re independent And I know that’s what I said but Then our journey started I’m so sorry, guess I lied I know that you can open Your own doors, but now I’m holding This one for you, so forgive me But hey, at least I tried That’s just how my mother raised me … More Blossom

Winged Shadows

An Angel spreads its righteous wings Its deeds – one of a kind Under a halo hides from view A plagued, Angelic mind Though such beauty, glamour, glee That spread throughout its course Its thoughts are fettered; grandeur, grief And feelings of remorse Reminded, alas, by Angelic plight Not even Saints amongst them, hide For … More Winged Shadows

You Sexy Thing

Its been a minute since I’ve written a thought piece. And by a minute, I mean more like probably over a year. That’s okay though, because we all know that life is a collection of strange happenings which generally have no explanation whatsoever insofar as timing, appropriateness, and/or reasoning. So who cares? Point is, you … More You Sexy Thing

Sovereignty

I write these words, I write them now, and yet I do not know just how they may interpret, may be read, but either way – at least they’re said. There are some things, some things that, yes, I’ll need to say but then digress. So if I seem to be verbose please do forgive … More Sovereignty

Three Wise Men

Three men sat down, they all wore crowns Around a fire, they all met Each had one goal to set down But each would argue how to get Get the goal they all dreamed of A world of laughter, fun, and love  Each had pure intentions, see It was their methods; disagreed It was Lord … More Three Wise Men

Cherish

I drove in thought, as tend I do On whim, I paused as I passed through Pulled aside and spent the day Atop the bluffs, where my dog played And though he is not with me now I felt him there, some way, somehow The moss, a feel of fur it had The breeze, sound … More Cherish

Reflections

A one way mirror, it must be For them, it’s clearer seen than me I look to my left I look to my right I know not where to walk tonight Should I take this path? Should I go there? Feign the footsteps of who dare? Nothings known on a false throne Uncertainty is all … More Reflections

Committed

Committed, so deep in it I will die before I quit it Its both Dark and light my mind’s mitosis, but you all already know this All these Ideas pouring out, overwhelming my head’s funnel My Hands are moving so damn much I’m thirty-five with carpal tunnel And I Experiment with rhythms I play around … More Committed
