Safe Spot

                              go spot no spot stop
                      light is red now green I scream
                              dashing in and out
                      a clean sweep he lifts and bounce
                      tail wagging his ball retrieved

Garden's Glamour

Garden isn’t robbed
Of its glory and luster
My breeze of vision 
My thoughts, my dreams
A restorer of splendor

No one heard my cry
Except my hustle and toil 
No one saw my blood 
Except my pains, groans and wounds
But all shall see my success

Stick to the center

Nightmares and daydreams
They but stall your climb, stick to
Bare necessities
Of a centered heart and mind
Building dreams in the moment

Earning Success

Don’t moil,
Try to foil
Each odd and obstacle
Stand in front of you to coil.
