A CASUAL STROLL

I marched in place
of Father Time
This did I
for me and you
That he would run
is not like me
A casual stroll for all
toward Eternity

THE FROSTED PANE

One’s life,
a covered pane
with fingerprints,
that remain —
a last breath
the final frosting

MY WALK

OH! The walk I have walked!
my feet have laughed and wept
through waters of discontent
and over horror through bliss
What path I go now not known
but surely nothing new to me
So walk I do but not alone

MOVEMENT

Movement
  that tryst
between
  fear life

  grow flee
life’s
  do die
light
  burn bright

REFUSAL MY ENTERTAINMENT

My refusal an entertainment
for my soul that chooses
denial of painful living
and ruffles on bold wrists
this flair life has given
a dare not many have taken
I stand up and face it daily!

A RUINED CASTLE

Why did you go
brilliant light
in haste you left
a speck of ember
it burns my heart

How long shall it be
like sands ebbed away
are all my hopes
a castle ruined at sea

Lovely bright my life
a taste of Spring
is what river i thirst
just a cup to drink

This i know briefly
then it goes away
ever so quietly
a tide within the sea

BELLS A RINGING

Image

LISTEN dear do you hear
the bells a ringing?
there were birds
in the sky
and they were singing
a wonderful song
full of loving
so I say just to you
take my hand
there be love all around
but the love I want
is what I found
it’s you — oh you!

SOUL STEEL

WHAT was weak
snapped into piece
I sadly held onto
my broken soul…
My angel spoke
and said it so…
what is broken
becomes the steel

TO SWIM WITH YOU

MY heart and lonely “I”
have only one wish
— before we die
such a confession
may sound so strange
but my obsession
— so unrestrained

I wish to swim with you
in the spring-well of love
I wish to swim with you
it would heal my wounds
And if I do decide to swim
across my bitter ocean
— it will be to reach
your land of pure honey

I wish to swim with you
…to swim…with you
With you…lovely you

I DO BELIEVE

IF I cried
the world
I do believe
would sigh
no passion -only
indifference
I believe
and I refrain
— delicate mind
wishes do believe
