Song Bird

To the song bird who sings
Not for perfection or mutterings…
Spreading love and so much more
Life, if noticed, is adored-
A Presence so pure in devotion
Left for my heart and ear consumption…
Thank you for teaching beyond your wings
The appreciation for simpler things-
For without reminders during strife
More of us would lose in life…
So I look as you lead the way
And carry the words I do pray-
Please play your song for me,
For in it I am truly free.

Awaken

Steps forward
Are the only to take,
Whether at the beginning
Or at golden gates…
Steps going back
Are tainted with remorse,
Foolish actions
Love lost in the course…
Yes there is bad
Even when there is great,
Become the compass
Instead of the hate…
Don’t speak with BUT
Or argue a lie,
Don’t lay down your strength
Wasting your Try…
For in the mirror
And inside your ears,
Stands who you are
Don’t be cavalier…
For it starts with You,
Your actions taken-
It starts with now,
Let your spirit awaken.

Forgiveness

Pebbles and rocks

Rivers and sand

People and places

Fantasy be damned…

And over the edge

Where fantasies live

No hunger or suffering

Just something to give….

And numb as it was

Alive was inside

Not for what was lost-

But for what finally had died.

Days and Time

The longest day of the year
Is but a few weeks away…
Were the days not just getting longer?
Yes, just the other day?
Oh time you stump me-
As you keep getting further still…
Always challenging my space
And my perception at will.
You are but a blip-
On an ever changing screen…
Always with the answers-
But never knowing what they mean.

The List

Oh how you grow

And taunt me to fail…

Oh how you stop

In forgotten detail…

Oh how you try

To not let me forget…

Oh how I wish

Success I would get…

Oh how I wait

To remember you exist…

Oh how the goals

Just stay on the list.

And Again

The storm taxed the land

And people within

Even while some

We’re simply living again.

Hail destroyed objects

And spider webs too…

Quickly it passed

Once damage was through.

But night does clear

A path we can walk

Careful the wolves

As they begin their walk.

Devils and demons

Talk over Angel’s say…

Hear their voices

And find the right way.

Future Temptress 


It haunts me

Telling jokes
Playing games

Little pokes
Tap, tap, tap

Always the same sound 

Opportunity knocking 

But can’t be found.
Windows are covered

The door without a knob

The noise is loud

Between these sobs.
Temptation is lurking 

Don’t let it come in

The temptress offers 

Fate stalls again
