I was there
when you were born
hand holding
tear drying
urging her on
I was there
for your first tooth
your first steps
wobbly at first
your first day at school
your purple jumper
that you hated
I was there
with your teenage angst
except it wasn't
now I know why
and I watch
as you...Read More

Premium Member AzaRiah's Earth Requiem
He was too old
to speak of active hope
for ancient creamy dreams
not yet boldly told

Inviting curious homeless nomads
to imagine what we could become
if we were not yet brazenly born
into this time of tragic burning,
predicting hunger,
and coastal drowning nakedness.

Into this epic brown...Read More

And double-parked outside, one of
The holiday-week perks.

The boss gave a hello.

Making pictures they could show.

The office mates had candy
Which, naturally, they...Read More
