Loss

For certain memories 
time stands still
and for a moment
the pain is searingly fresh
The loss makes you realize
what matters most
An aching reminder
of what it means
to truly love

Transitions

Life’s transitions
Freedom from this mortal world
Tears role down my face

Truth is Black and White

I can’t breath

The presence of mind
To set the world on fire
Nothing left to lose

White
House afire
Hot with hate
Washed in vainglorious jactitation
Privilege

Choices


We are living in a time
When personal choices
Can impact so many others
As a matter of life or death,
Disparity never so clear
Selfishness disguised as freedom,
Choosing economy over humanity
Is the real tragedy
Because if we let go of man made doctrines,
Reject the fear of scarcity
And instead embrace abundance,
If we focus on taking care of one another
Everything will be all right

You may be feeling very small and insignificant right now, powerless even
You matter and you have a voice
Don’t give up hope
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give up…

Tiny golden jewels
Sparkle in cold winter light
Wild beach rose

Your time to blossom will come
Spring thaw around the corner

Quiet

As I sit in your quiet house
A lifetime of memories haunt me
Sweet snippets of laughter play
A flickering old movie reel
Until the film finally runs out
Celluloid flapping against metal
Jolts me back to reality
Past relationships lost to time
Unwilling to mask my sorrow

Around the sun

She is now

Back to stardust
