Peripatetic

Peripatetic heart
Looking for answers
In water ripples

Winds of Change

Seeds of love scattered
Blown by winds of emotion
Clouds of teargas

All we have
Is a few short minutes
To be sons and daughters
Fathers and mothers
Friends and lovers
There is no color
No race
No nation
Only humanity
Let us help each other
To live our best lives
In peace and compassion

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #235: Rant!

Harvest

You want what you can’t have
Reasoning somehow that seems more valuable
Abandoning those who do love you
Because who would want to love you, right?
So you chase phantoms, try to rewrite history
Harvest lost souls like shiny objects, glinting in the sun
All the while they are burning your retina, so you cannot see the truth
The truth that’s been right in front of your face
All along

Awe

Virtual worlds collide
Airwaves replace touch
Community spirit

I am in awe at the resiliency and creative spirit that has come out of this pandemic. In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #224: Awe.

Risk

From the moment we are born
Until the moment we die
Our lives are a series
Of calculated risks
That make life worth living
And ventures worth taking
When fear of regret is greater
Than the reality of danger

Contemplation

My contemplation
Of all life’s impermanence
Stars subtle decay

Grace

3F5CFB0F-5D1C-4137-A60F-FE2E379BCC19

Grace does not come easily. It is a product of hard work and rugged determination. It is the steadfast willingness to move through the pain without blame, shame or disappointment. It is the ability to drown out the noise and attack life with laser like focus. It is the resolve to rise above the messiness of all that is human and embrace all that is beautiful. 

Struggling
To keep my shit
In one sock
