Not a Secret

Not a Secret ~~~~~ I accept my death, though I am not ready to go. That will not matter, if my time ceases to flow. We are all seeking balance, day and the night; End the beginning, despite how we may fight. We shouldn’t act foolishly, courting the reaper. No matter your plans, you may […]

Lies and Truth

Lies and Truth ~~~~~ What ways We wander, Wonder why, Search, seek Twisted trails, Tall tales, Following fools, Meaning morsels, Broken breadcrumbs, Mired meanders, Wide walkways, Paved pathways, Rural roads, Long lanes, Dusty drives, Graveled grades Sleek superhighways, Cacophonous cities, Electronic expressways, Digital dead-ends.

Yet, as the moon merges With distant mountains, The stars above blaze, Full of moments, stories. Not only our myths, Legends we would guard, But myths and legends Of distant civilizations. […]

Dream Strange Dreams

Dream Strange Dreams ~~~~~ Patterns upon patterns upon patterns, All our world is full of shapes and lines. Some appear solid, but science says no. Some are shadows and reflections of us, Our world patterns cast upon everything. How to know, what is real, what is not? Is it a question, or is the question, […]
