Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Love

img_5181

A time of turmoil
Humanity on the rocks
All compassion gone

Heart hardened like stone
From pain, fear, disappointment
My internal shell

Then this loving face
Acts as the water or wind
I break down and cry

I needed this light
In a time when peace alludes
Love among the hate

Tears

Tears flow down my cheeks
Long after the rain has stopped
Puddle at my feet

Your soothing palm on my back
I am no longer alone

First Frost

Cotton boll snow storm
Frosts southern field and furrow
Shimmering solstice

Song of ancestors sorrow
Blowing on the wind of change
