I See

I notice the veins in leaves, those lines that struggle to be seen, afraid to get hidden,by the glorious green of the leaf. I notice the reluctance in the wavesto fall back into the sea once they have met and tasted,the soft silkiness of…

Solitude

I listen to the tick-tock of time,And see it pass, as I lie on my bed,Dreams, peace, all elude me,Sleep I cannot, lost in time it is. The constant screeching of silence,Makes me close my ears.I try to escape from the pain,Words and speech…

That Perfect Love

A love that overwhelms, A love that breathes life, one that inspires, is the kind I crave. In darkness, in light, a love that stays, survives and shelters, one that encompasses, is what I wish for. In a world so fragile, a love that…

You are, for I am

Afloat, buoyant, light that is what I feel like, You, hey, yes, you, the look in your eyes, glazed and awed I bring that on The stutter, the stumble, I cause that too. The longing, the sweet pain, that you wish for more, I…

The Market of Colors

That Summer

A summer when sunshine drips, ants dig and snakes hide, and trees sway, desperate, to find some shade, In that summer, I lost my hope, and my thirst. my power to trudge, my zeal to live, It was’nt the heat, nor the sweat, but…

Was That My Soul?

She soars high, Becoming one, with the heavens above, Is that my soul, or is it merely a bird. I squint to see, through the orange sun, yet, all I can see, is a fleeting hue, A hue of indigo blending, with the blue…

A Paradox

In the midst of a storm, I calm down, In the calm of the night, my storm rages, A paradox I am. I am both Yin and yang, I am perfect, and I am not, I am Delphic, and I am common, a paradox…

The Angel

Her, I spy,as I walk on by, I stop and stare, she sparks desires of which I have never known, Of a fire, of a love that lies bare. As I reach out, she breathes light, a light that blinds me, it is so…
