soaking shoulder deep
in oceans of humility
feasting upon fruits of tranquility

The dank petrichor of grainy night,
meters stand like gravestones,
the obsidian avenue slick as a sapphire,
windowed granite rising in sharp cut shadows,
wind gusting, tumbleweed clouds...

The spoken word, the sped arrow, and the neglected opportunity’

introspection, life, love, romance,
Don’t promise me the world
That’s not yours to give
Neither promise me forever
When all you have to give is today
Just give me your today

The Future Is In My Hands
beautiful, boyfriend, business, children,
Just a five minute train ride
But I'm already far, far away.
Staring out through the speckled windows,
Highlighted against the setting sun.

Seize the Day
The autumn sun has risen
but yet to attain high noon-
make hay, my roses fair.

Nature draws me near
Banishing all my fear
Thank You Lord
For giving me Light
Holding me Dear...
The Final Journey
adventure, courage, freedom, identity,

withstood the tests of time and foe
shed the dust and shouldered worries
struggled onward against the flow.
Unconforming, seldom bending

This Day- This Moment
A few choice moments…
Plush in promise
Open to opportunity
Dense with destiny
Moments in time
everything you have
everything you are
weigh heavily in the balance
replete with risks…

Or that I'm too much drama on the stage
