Toward the end of a book,
we tend to speed up, 
in anticipation of the climatic finish. 

Yet sadly, 
the build-up...
was the part we savored, 
on the perfect path
to the right...
final, 
and everlasting
word(s).

The beginning.

The speed of light
is exactly how fast
my heart sends;
every prayer, 
every good thought, 
every perfect wish! 

The bright candle between us, 
it is the sun itself. 
 
The solar wind fills the sails
of my forever ship, 
longing to journey...Read More

The Map Undrawn

Written in the snow, 
by angels...
made from the bodies,
of the innocent. 

The way to heaven... 
is seen, 
fleeting in its passing, 
like a dream. 

Unquestioned,
by the faithful.
Celebrated,
by the hopeful, 
ever thankful.

His mercy!
Prayerful,
and diligent
the remnant remain.

They are pure silver, 
and have no idea. 
They are humble and kind, 
pray for each other, 
and welcome strangers.

Yet polished or aged, 
vintage of freshly fired, 
the address is the same.

Fading Paper Dolls

Slowly leaving things out, 
important and then, 
not so much. 

Angry people that believe 
they are slighted, 
or given less value, 
found wrong...
as those closer
get lost as well. 

Getting older, 
accidents or fate...
our memory, 
our remembrances,
our lives,

"Chicken" Dinner

Invited, 
for the first time, 
it might well be the last. 

A tux was too much, 
a swimsuit too little. 
I thought I would dance,

Whisper
 
A subtle current,
a fierce expression,
of a gentle feeling, 
wild,
powerful, 
no longer held contained 
by any restraint. 
 
Not weak, as may be expected, 
but the very difference...
between life and death. 

Listen.

My Family
I love my mother.
I wouldn't ask for another.
Sure we don't always agree.
She prefers coffee.
I prefer tea.
She raises her voice, and I raise  my voice back.
We apologize to each other then she makes me a snack.

I love my father, he's...Read More

I want to write about Christmas cookies, 
Angels that hang on the tree,

then smile.

I want to write about Mistletoe, 
and first kisses,
red cheeks,
red noses, 
and roses. 

I want to share the feeling that I...Read More

Daughter of The King. 
Your namesake blessed a nation, 
be proud. 
You began life, 
ahead of most. 
Already you were glorified, 
held high by your parents. 

Don’t let any take you down,

An open heart, 
an open hand,

He is in command. 

Placing others above yourself,

You are part of me, 
I wish that were not true.

I long to be lost. 
I have heard today
again, 
yet one more, 
reason to believe, 
your level of hate, 
had no end.

Dark is the Art

Lies. 
Evil made up, 
hiding in plain site…

Judgments made, 
of others, 
that can not see, 
the color
of their own robes. 

It is easy. 
No glasses, 
No special view, 
or mirror effect…

Lies.

The green tree in the box, 
kept in the attic,

but a project

He…, 
put me on the ground. 
He yelled.
He screamed. 
Sometimes…
he was obscene. 

I walked on. 
I wanted to live, 
the perfect life. 
The picket fence, 
and no strife. 

Two kids, a yard, a house. 
A mouse in the kitchen,...Read More

Letters unsent, 
to people…
that wish they had received them. 
Maybe not write away,

Harsh words spoken, 
throughout the year, 
people with a past…
they can not leave. 
Maybe something;
they are dragging behind.

Do not waste more time!

It is fire and spit,
thin water and urine.

all the outlets, blocked.

Washing Instructions

Put the clothes in the washer. 
not quickly, but slowly. 
There was a day,

by hand. 

Four or five large things, 
Maybe some socks, 
a few, 
overload, 
and the cost will be high.

Straps, and wire, 
cutting ropes…
that make you bleed. 
Not that anyone can see,

Some are worse then others. 
Some have lives,

The word safe, 
never spoken.
