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

Hello, Pip!

At Peace

Sitting silent, amidst the trees A place where I’m at peace to think Close my eyes, feel the breeze Nothing else is happening No need of stress, do that, plan this For worries, here; they all vanish I cast a stone to make a wish The calmness ripples, catching it I now look down, a … More At Peace

Christmas: 2021

‘Twas the night before Christmas And all through the house Not a creature was stirring …except Missus Clowse “Get up you old fat man!” “You’ve a job to do!” “Gifts don’t wrap themselves!” “So stop hitting ‘Snooze’!” And from that point on This old Santa could tell That this one year’s Christmas Was gonna be … More Christmas: 2021

A Just Saying

“Just move on, just forget, let it go and turn the page” “That is how you’ll get by now, for life is naught more than a stage” Such advice from those in life, they mean well yet misunderstand Closure quite can bring respite, and things aren’t had ‘till they’re in hand Seeing is believing, at … More A Just Saying

Worlds of War

With the birds I share this view, indeed Yes it’s lonely, but it’s the only Only thing I seem to see Flying high up in the sky Looking down on things below See amidst, we’re so transfixed On that which sells tix to the show And yet if We flipped the switch Then maybe we … More Worlds of War

They All Say

The cream will rise, they always say But then they paint in shades of grey Talent touches, waters reach But oceans only wave so far Contained by a sand-castled beach All those castles in the sand Lead to newer, unfound land And yet only a few exist Castles, yes But in their mist In their … More They All Say

Place Your Vet

Mr. Baxter, he loves his life So much so, he took a knife Looked down at his abdomen And said “Know what? Screw this, I’m in” I looked at him, puzzled of course Because I’m fairly sure discourse Is capable among we men Not dogs, you know? Only humans So after getting over that I … More Place Your Vet

So many things happen in life That cause us pain, anguish, or strife Things that make us question Him Be it loss, or love, or sin Moments pass when we’re astray Confused, consumed, cornered, at bay Yet if we can stay the course There exists an age old force Something that comes from within But … More Shooting Stars

Why

What is this? I see this mirror Reflecting back my greatest fear All events we see and hear Their purpose, all, remains unclear Rhyme and reason have no place In this forgotten, empty space We question why, yet answered naught As chaos, cruelly, has appeared Death, it laughs with irony It’s darkness finds the light … More Why

Marionette

It makes no sense, at least to me Strings are pulled haphazardly Never knowing why, or when A tale to tell, but there’s no pen Rhyme and reason, both absent And yet the cruelty won’t relent Overstaying welcomes Like letters that are never sent A dictator, yes it’s true It controls me, and controls you … More Marionette

Fitting In

Squares in squares, circles sit, triangles are full of it They all know just what they are; defined, described, a shooting star They all have a place to be A place that holds them, place that keeps Keeps the hardened world outside The high, the low, the any tide Normalcy is what they’re fed Waking … More Fitting In
