Frozen

He sat there frozen
A painful reminder
Of days gone by
When mankind
Was allowed to read
And relax, and dream
A time before the ban
That constant reminder
Of the punishment
For being caught reading
Was to be turned to stone

Weathered

Exposing the raw
Weather peeling back the years
Deep lines on her face

Glass

12E50245-0FD1-4FE0-AB16-707A476249DC

This year I resolve to shatter
That glass ceiling that is my mind
For beautiful as the glass is
The atmosphere weighs heavily
And is but a sparkly, fragile illusion
Better to let the sharp fragments
Rain their color down upon me
Than to stay below the surface
Wanting to be flying above

Atmosphere

File Nov 17, 9 38 24 PM

In smoldering ash
Nothing left but a flicker
Of a life that was

 Before the earth’s atmosphere
Became the human experiment

All That Glitters

Glitter of fall gold
Lunaria annua
Jangle in the wind

Sun’s x-rays give us a peek
The promise of future life
