Stone

Stone

Raining drops from heart of stone

Diamonds breaking in the dust

Galaxies of questions sparkle

In cold light of the dark

 

Windows through countless lives

Refracting the fullness of nothing

Colors ooze slowly, suspended

Fragments of timeworn illusion

 

Worn etched upon a memory

Of things that never happened

Quiet waves of tranquility

Caress the shores of an empty lake.

Morning Star

Morning Star

Alone I sit wandering the passageways of undesirable solitude a perilous path upon the edge of a treacherous and windswept cliff.

A solitary being seeking wholeness and balance, not always alone in physicality but never balanced in reality.

Long has it been since early wounds, even upon the measure of the spirit since I have felt a true and lasting completeness

Ever seeking, ever searching and ever wandering though somehow afraid of finding

.

The sorrows of a million miles lie behind my weary steps within this singularity of existence.

.

So many that indeed I flinch in hesitant disbelief from the glory of the morning star – rising harbinger of new potential and the renewal of life.

I fear not the chance in itself but that the hope will again turn to ash at the lightest touch of my fingers, withering away like smoke upon the winds of precarious time.

I reach hesitant and gentle in the true hope that this one chooses to share from the deepening cup of life with me.

I wonder still at times if a curse resides upon me as I struggle to maintain hope.

.

Will the starlight burn in its cool cold radiance, or will it comfort and warm

.

Heart torn and no one hears as the scars of unseen wounds muffle the shrieking fears that rampage gleefully inside

Born into the arms of solitude, damaged to the edge of fearing anything more than  retaining an existence of nothing.

Where then lies the end of this when strength and heart and hope may fail to see through to the light.

To long alone, yet knowing in truth little more than the frail resilience of forsaken soul yet each day breaks with new promise.

 

Will that Star of the Dawn shine and remain within my reach?

Unicorn

Unicorn

 

Silvered horn on frosted brow

Beard streams long and low

In silence eye to eye is seen

Lost fantasies between

Hooves of golden luminance

In steady rhythms dance

Softly come the footfall

To mysteries fragile wall

Tail sweeps the forest floor

A Princess’ flowing gown

Low the heart beat resonates

A shimmering of sound

Mane of moonlit filigree

Weaves quite like the sea

Pirouette of symphonies

It dances in the breeze

Gleaming coat of satin snow

Pure in innocence glow

Beckoning the purest touch

Of yesteryear and such

Fairy steed of days of yore

Comes the Unicorn once more

With Maiden’s fair of grace

To hold its shining place

Out of the file box from a few years ago.

This was written at the request of a friend for her daughter.

 

Teardrops on Her Skin

Teardrops on Her Skin . . .

 

My lady touched me softly

With tears upon my skin

An’ yet they’re not deep sorrow

Though pain soft lies within

Brief the parting, just for now

Soft peace and hope begin

Stand upon the threshold

And the world dropped from view

I looked into those searching eyes

They were looking back at me

Time stood still in each others arms

As we lost ourselves within

So Lady hold me gently

I know you’ll hold me true

Stay within my arms

So I can hold you too

Ask the Gods to speed the time

Fly swiftly through the days

I carry you within me

I left teardrops on your skin.

Thought = Form

Thought = Form

Life begins.

Dreams Fade

Hopes die.

People change

Hearts cry

Souls sigh.

Death comes.

 

And the sun sets, crimson.

 

Wind blows.

Grass grows

Leaves rustle.

Rain falls

Thunder tolls

Rivers run

 

And the sky dawns, iridescent.

 

Mountains rise

Stone crumbles

Sand sloughs

To soil

Trees grow

 

And the leaves dance, merrily

 

Stars are born

Planets drift

Through time

Suns fade

 

And the universe floats, unimaginably

 

We live for tomorrow and lose the day.

We worry always as life slips away.

We fret for what we have not.

And forget what we have.

Tomorrow is never here.

And you have this day to live.

 

Some days never change, some never stay the same

Music dances lyrically and the song remains the unchanged.

Life passes in bits and pieces, moments frozen in time.

Is there a need for tomorrow, to wake again?

Eternal Muse

Eternal Muse

 

One foot in tomorrow and one in yesterday.

The passage of the ages never seems to fade.

Strewn across the vastness like ripples in the shade.

I see in all the memories the moments we have made.

 

My eyes within the heavens and feet fast on the ground.

Each tear or toll of laughter passes without sound

Upon my inner eye does play the memory of you.

Two souls softly touching, an extraordinary view.

 

Within me burns eternal sun tempered by your moon.

Born within the vastness of creations dawning tune.

We are lost across the cycles of times eternal tide.

We’ve strolled in meted chaos, quite often side by side.

 

Heart within the heavens and soul on forever’s shore

Our passage has spawned legend, lost in days of yore.

Born within the darkness two lost and wondering lights

Alone in isolation until we heard each other’s cry.

 

Children of the starlight, we are travelling this song,

This journeys crossed forever and continues to go on.

As we were born in nothingness strewn with stars anew.

Life is lost and empty without a touch of you.

Deceptions of The Heart.

Deceptions of The Heart

I’ve asked the Gods to free me from your presence in my mind.

Cried for quiet numbness to block away the time

I’ve wished the walls around me, wrought iron to the core.

Thrown my heart within them so I can’t feel you any more.

 

I seek you through the darkness of my desolated soul

Cross the threads lying broken within this endless void.

I hunt across my memory to turn you from my mind,

For desire lies shattered locked in boundless time.

 

I rage against you now and then to hide the hurt I feel.

Crush each spark of laughter shared by you and me.

Curl in the cold darkness that lies inside of me.

I’ve wished away forever, though I cannot count the times.

 

I beg the gods to free me and unchained, my spirit freed.

I’ve hunted down your memories and cast them in deception’s seas.

I‘ve wished the hope to silence while crushing every spark

And I dance upon the jagged edge of this shattered heart.

 

Yet I seek you in the darkness and hear your silent cries.

I feel your breath upon me as never begins to die.

I see your face behind my eyes, your touch upon my skin.

Sleepless as I memorize the contours of you once again.

 

I sought across the tracks of time searched both high and low

Driven by a needing of which I didn’t know.

And when it grows the darkest as I cast you from my heart

I wake anew each morning as it all begins again.

 

I’ve loved you through the ages across the universe divine,

and searched across the timeless plain to free you in this time.

Maybe in tomorrow in its never dawning grace,

I’ll open eyes upon you safe in your embrace.
