In my mind are many things Some big, some small, some tall, some short Some living, some lifeless Some static, some in motion Some cast long shadows, and others leave Lingering smells Some ooze and smudge their marks of Existence While others glide by without leaving A trace behind No pattern to follow No whisperContinue reading “BLACKBOX￼”
Let me write you a letter Let me pour my heart out When words fail to come With breath, You will not go without Let me sing you a love song In these empty pages Let my hope become infectious Like laughter with dowages Listen, close, this ink has a message to give Convoluted thoughContinue reading “LOOKING AHEAD￼”
Lord, I’m having a couple of bad days I feel low, really, really, really low Incapable of action further than youtube Incapable of work that isn’t quickly followed by apology Incapable of creativity past this prayer book I feel full of sorrow, doubt, discontentment And despair My heart is still and heavy within me JoyContinue reading “COLDER HERE BELOW￼”
