A Long Loud Sigh
sometimes you are in its minimal spotted light...sometimes!
other times you just know you've been touched and you freeze,
moved but frozen...like a stranger it moves in,...
Its a part of me
emotions, introspection, life,
Our lives are not immune to the impacts of time,
nor is our mind between the tensions of love and hate.
That's why I curse this wanderlust...
A Poetry Collection
art, guitar, humanity, introspection,
Through the glass
Within the past
They never last
Head in my hands
As I stare overhead
At the hourglass

Where maple leaves have turned from green to gold
I watch them fall in breezes turning cold
In a whirl-wind...

seduced as I was by the fickle fingers of fate musingly stroking my hair,
this lusciously lavish landscape
Soul Searching Trek Along Winter's Snow Painted Trails - a collaboration with Robert and Teppo

Waking to cold blown tent, ground frozen icy hard
woods are my love, as is poetry to a bard.
Today starts my anticipated forest trek,
seeking salvation from...
destiny, emotions, inspiration, introspection,
A born lioness
my untamed heart.. ha!
wild this pulsing token ruled by unruly wants
at times given, traded or stolen - sometimes
thrown down on a dare...
The Things I Cherish
The things I value,
The things I cherish,
Are things no one else will
When I perish
Do I write a missive
Explaining the why?
Would this help save things
Thats when I fall down upon my knees, song version
introspection, depression, feelings, god, hope,

THAT’S WHEN I FALL DOWN UPON MY KNEES
There’s no way-
I’ll see another sunrise
My hope is gone-
as I'm contemplating...
if I had money
drug, introspection, universe,
if I had all the money that I ever wanted,
The Maltese Moon
beautiful, introspection, travel,
The Maltese Moon,
she draws my eyes
to shapely orb
in starlit sky
she smiles at me
with wanton grace
and spills desire
upon my face
I'm all awash
in milky glow
AS FATHER IS TO HIS DAUGHTER
father, introspection, words,
Passing through framed windows like ours,
I recall your tales of reckless war and lost friends
that burned your innocence at 21... and though
you claimed flashes of...
I have no sorrow, for sorrow is small,
And can't be held guilty for choices made.
Reflections are scrawled on my mind's dark wall,
And will leave stains...

Bled out, dry. I could have but I was already

I wish someone could...

Try to live
Try to feel pain with no tears
Try to remember years past and often lost
Try, oh try to know life need not be cold...
angst, death, introspection, loss,
stars twinkled brilliantly
against majestic snow-capped mountains,
delicate pure white flakes danced;
swirling, twirling, rhythmically.
she stood, nose pressed tightly
against the window pane; gazing in awe
at the magic the...
Shadow of Death
angst, destiny, introspection, pain,
My shadow flirts with the sun
As I caress the darkness
We are one and separate
As my shadow smiles
Anxiety suffocates me
The shadow will soon fade
I shall die
Other Side of the Wall
art, friendship, imagery, introspection,
is that a cry
yes I listen
to a wall
A white wall
stares back at me
I feel the wall
My heart stops
freedom, inspirational, introspection, motivation,
Stop in your tracks
Take a deep breath
Stop and relax
Close your eyes
Exhale a slow deep breath
In your mind’s eye
It’s early dawn
It’s quiet and serene around...

He's been calling me that for years
I like it
Truth is I have always been a doll
My permanent smile
My open arms
I was a sweet sixteen's...
A Tempest of Tears

of rained regrets and sins
I offer my humility
the only gift I can give.

A new borns cry
Tearful last good bye
Swaying waves of golden prairie grass
Shifting desert dunes - an hour glass
An acorn dropping among forest leaves
To mighty oak...
