Summer Gladness

As the bees buzz

And snakes crawl

Dragging summer

Grass stands tall…

Crickets sing

When birds lay sleep

Within the season

The soul does keep-

For life lives

In all living things

So many verses

Beyond the strings…

Inches from slumber-

Or living again

Live the now

Before the Then.

Remember Easy with Us

Image created by JusTee

Remember easy
Sun rising
Rain pouring
Without care of prizing

Remember lust
And fantasy
Without debt
Or property…

Remember us
Before kids
Without Hers
Or his

And forget now
To have then
Before everything
And after this.

For there is simple
To have, to hold
So many stories
With strength to be told…

Because it takes us
Not me or you
To travel the time
And get to the view.

Believe

I see the story

And know the trends

What is worshipped

And has no end.

And there is now

Like the ocean floor

What you thought

And where you soar…

And like a partner

Not just a friend-

And the beginning

With no real end…

I’ll be there

And beyond that too-

For it’s simply me

Inside of you.

Hello Fuzzy

Hello fuzzy

My old friend

When did we become close?

Or was there a when?

Or just a comfort

Before the tale

The pain inside

And unfortunate fail…

And the break

Before the torch

Running to die

Before breaking a porch…

And understanding

Like only a demon can do-

Holding the burden

Before hitting the truth.

Sin

The idea of space and time
Is only a moment
No punishment or forgiveness
Or mind with matter…
No, simply a piece
To the game
Or missing peace
Begging fame…
For are we not always nothing?
Until we come to a truth
Is not age or beauty
Fake fountain of youth…
Just a second
In a blimp of time…
Nothing suffered
Or anything mine-
Just the minute
Or a momentary gift…
Payment in trial
For the microsecond lift-
And to believe
It was for something more
Staring out the window
Believing in the door…
Instead of now
And forgiving then-
Because it was a moment
And temporary win.

The Gift

There are days to be carried

And some to pull

Moments of fear

And blessings untold…

And there is love

Anger or hate

And always the moment

Before it’s almost too late…

It’s in these moments

We can find the greatest gift

A grave to be dug

Or a much needed lift…

To have the time

To live what is learned

Is a gift to some

And to others we yearn…

Life so complex

But handle with care-

For it only takes a moment

To no longer be there.

Thank God we are still here

Hopeful for many more-

To be thankful for the day

When it was wasted before.

Time Kills

For each year counting

Is another to waste

Time quickens

At success to pace…

And we are not here

Or even gone

Just finding a path

Of everything wrong…

Not out of perfection

Or even guilt

Just moving on

While the earth does tilt…

And all things move

Even while standing still-

Too late to notice

Only time does kill.

Tequila Sunset

Loneliness

Rocks and shame

Liquid gold

An angel’s game…

No earth to shatter

Or glass to score

No back to the beginning

Or the moment before…

Just a repeat

Of a moment like this

Salt for looks

Before shimmering bliss.
