In All Things

In all things

The blade of grass
The drop of dew

The girl on the other side of the world who does not know
How much she really means
But will soon
Even if she forgets again soon after

In all things

Light
And a potential for it to go out
Just the same as for it to grow
Brighter
Than that which shines from the burning star
Around which we turn

In all things

A voice
A song that has been sung
For many years
And will continue
Long after we all have passed

In all things

I am
Nothing
But a passing breeze
A leaf
Which is carried thusly
To fall and break apart
To return once more

In all things

You

For Asha

Fifteen years
Dedicated
To only her
Waiting anxiously
But patiently
All senses finely tuned
Calculated
To perceive
The sound of her approach
Now in retreat
From physical presence
But distant not
Rather
To manifest forevermore
In story and memory
Every second bound
In blissful pairing
At your side
Or on your grateful lap
Never to be apart again
Never to be for want
So long as you are not forgotten

Restart (A Belated Response to the “Freedom of Expression” Tag)

I have always loved the rain
The way the droplets continue steadily
One after another
In what must seem an endless free-fall
A lifetime of motion
Complete with friends and cohorts
Allies and enemies
Tumbling just the same
Down until they can fall no longer
Until they reach their violent fate
If only for a moment
Before they are drawn back in
To the warm embrace
Of the flow that has gathered around them

Intimate Moments Within

This piece is a direct response to the poem An Intimate Kiss by Charles Robert Lindholm. My sincere gratitude and respect goes out to Charles for the beauty he brings to this community through his work and collaborative mindset.


She waits for me

Home: a word with so much weight
The place where we first made known
A new portage
To realms uncharted

A Thought on Change

A movement through motion
A wave from the heart of my mind to the shore of your heart

I often wonder: “How do others perceive
This world we share but do not always experience
In identical or even relatable ways?”

I am in love with the idea of honesty
I have fallen hard for openness and the genuine
Pursuit of truth and awareness that change can occur
But only if we seek it with our hearts
