Hercules

How I danced through the mist. Elbow high and thickening. My feet barely touched the ground. When I danced through the mist. The world was gleaming after this. Not dark, cold or raining in. Alive, bright and wildly seen. Against the troubles of rising mist. I found me feet and flew right in. A warrior burnt into…

MORNING

The crack of dawn greets me. A brilliant smile on its face. A rushing to smile back, Sends me to the rails. My arms spread wide, My chest expands, And I breathe the warming air of morning.  

Young Woman

Will I ever be free? Bold, Alive. To have the face of self desire. To have the walk of self devotion. And be like a mother of three, Her eyes alert at home, Her eyes alert, even in the world. Confident of where she is, And who’s is there. Confident of what she has, And how…

The Hopeless Lover

In this age, We are constant looking, For one to fault. Let me ease the burden. I am at fault. I am the fault. I am the evil one. the tormenter, the purger, the rebuker of fine things. I am the desire of evil. I am the thirst for wickedness. I am hate upon the…

Happy

The ice is melted. I stand on an open field. The grass is blowing in the breeze. The trees are singing. The wind whispering victories. The sun is shining. All the rain has poured on. I am renewed.

If I Could

If I could hold a moment And strap it round my waist. Capture the world, And bear it as my girdle, Saw the corners of stars, For a blanket of moss. If I could muster the sun, As my eternal mirror. And move that, that I cannot picture. If I could be in charge Of…

FALSE FREEDOM

A magnitude is swallowed. It revolts and runs. Never to be caught by choice. Never to be captured by thought. But running, ever downward. Through gut and all.

The truth about winter

The truth about winter, It left me warm. When ice rendered my skin raw, It left me warm. Even as darkness engulfed the open sky, It left me warm. For I saw the cold and felt the shivers. It left me warm. Then a violent shaking possessed my soul. It left me warm.  I sought truth…

Live Free

Be one with the rhythm of your soul. Let your heart be moved by the chance of dreams. Allow it to leave footsteps on the shores. Fear not the stretch of love or loss. Give imagination its part as the rhythm of a dance. And in the elegant movement of time, be free.      …

To Be Kind

You see the lines of sorrow and offer a smile. You see the hope for a better future and offer an ear. You see the tire from years and offer a hand. You see the courage for tomorrow and offer your mind. You see the pain of yesterday and offer a heart. You see a…

Hope for a simple life

Hope for a simple life. Not a hard one. One where you are part of all that moves. You know yourself and those around you. You are proud and humble with godly purpose. And you change things for the better. So hope for a simple life. Like a farmer who breathes fresh air. Who feeds…

THE HERO

Then the shadow turned bloody, And sprayed its guts around me.   Devour! Devour! The dragon shouts. Surround! Surround her!   My pigeon eyes stared at a stranger, Turned from rubble to fight the murder.   Conquer! Conquer! He persuades the fallen. Defend! Defend her!   The destined hour is passing. The rescued city’s cries…
