Awakening


back to
real life
we’ve all
been asleep
but dawn
brings a lucid
a picture
of all of us
together
we have made
a tiny
piece of
life here
our
identity
when
a threat
can’t stop
you’re
never
satisfied please
free
me

Has Nothing Changed


when am i
where
it sounds like
alone
i don’t think so
what’s happening
its’ all gone
i used to play here
i think this is…
no, definitely not
so what’s wrong
this is not exactly true
is it?
its time…time
need a little time
nothing to worry about
i wish things
could stay the same
if nothing changed
the important
the beautiful
seasons change
colors bloom
the rain comes
new life
a watering hole
or
metamorphosis
it happens all the time
but i’ve got this
work to finish
first

Slipping


mind your life

not a clue

its our order

strong as it appears

mange it carefully

perennially

or doom

the treasure

to the

attention

of

eternal

time

Aside

Dropping Down


dropping down

you’ve been here too

a keepsake

stuck in the

slow lane

while

everyone else

is

speeding up

you get what

you pay for

is it only

going to

make

it

better

Secrets


life theories
unable to join
never thought I’d hear
the deafening silence
can you find
the silence
lend an ear
this is not just
the beginning
pause the show
for a minute or two
stand behind your brothers
wake again to
breed the female
a slow death of air
a baby’s laughter
is the greatest price
of fear

The Guardian


hear the horizon
sweet honeysuckle wafts
totally silent and
very gladly accepted
guardianship
over the new light
absolutely
just discovered
leave it to watch
or another reason
given to the sky
made in the new
a vow
taken with
a baby’s laughter
hand-painted glass
a wise young teacher
thought
and said
life is so much more
than i needed
