Morning Roast

This gazebo is one of my favorite places. By the lakeside, so quiet and peaceful – like a quiet song to match the calm within me. I watch the steam dance from my mug, and the dew borne mists swirl and rise from the grass under the morning sun. Out on the water a small […]

Right Track

A split in the road, will often surprise us, which way we go is an answer inside us. No one will say whether the track is wrong, but only the track they think you belong. So tune them out, and hear your voice, and make your choice — wisely. For while there many tracks to […]

Stream of Thought

There is a place between nightmares and dreams, where my thoughts flow just like a stream. It is there you will find me, oftentimes. Making rhymes – killing time.

Dare to be Different

Dare to be different, dare to be proud. Stand up and be counted, from within the crowd. Don’t worry what they think, or what they say. What they think, is pointless anyway. Stand up and be heard, from within the herd. Tell us your story, with your own special words. Who are you really, are […]

Delicate

A dandelion lay tucked in the corner of my garden but it was at last found by me. It was pretty and puffed in fluffy white stuff and my eyes took in the singular beauty, Wanting to marvel closer, I kneeled and peeled that delicate white stuff all puffed and pretty straight out — and […]

Who?

Mere babe, so tender and unknowing. who were you? Before thoughts were taught, and curses and blows bound your heart in rigid fiber, Were you trusting? Before the door was empty, and disappointment stole the hopeful breath within, Were you innocent? Before the love was lost, and all your goodness was thrown and broken like […]
