awesome fuss



close my eyes over and over again

hoping to see your shadow 

grateful for life’s twists and turns

and every unborn tomorrow

the calm seas have angst

the angry mountains burn

the skies shed smoke filled tears

what is the lesson to learn?

water ravages the rice fields

the drought will end 

i am learning once again

sometimes a stranger is god sent

our paths are yet to cross

yet in my head so much awesome fuss

don’t know why I feel 

the way your place of meditation does

Fifty words in a story- Now



Imagine waking up one day in the far away future and looking back at life…what would matter most? Family, friends, careers, bank balance, memories, how people made us feel, lying on the green grass and staring at the blue skies? Whatever it is…make time for it, now. NOW.

sweet silence



black and white

in the grey life’s alright

try not to spin my wheels and run

close my eyes under the sun

reject magic potions

worthless lotions

anything to hide

who we are on the inside

can we gaze at dragon flies crossing lands

cheer little children screaming in rock bands

whisper to wild orchids trapped in fancy pots

dare to feel like touch-me-nots

for you and i are kindred spirits who know hunger

betrayal, agony and anger

we can find stars scattered among black skies

truth amidst white lies

learn to dance again

feel warm dancing under the cold rain

listen to our sweet silence

bridge the distance

watch the sun set on the same side

rise bravely with nothing to hide

black and white

in the grey life’s alright
