Sitting in this

dying tree

wondering; should

I just let

you be, like she

has done with me?

When she said she

had to go

was that the last

that I should

know?  Then, I get

a shiver, when

wintry skies dim

with snowfall

winding it’s way

down the glen

I feel the fall

This tree; once, so tall

 

 

 

 

 

HPIM2990

Here am I; I have arrived

In this moment I am alive

There is no next, or one before

I am the open door

I watch, I hear the falling rain

There is no pain; no need for gain

Who am I; I take my bow

I am; my name is Now

Some mediums cannot be erased

Light tints don’t cover darker hues

So, I am only partly colored in

with most of it, a deep blue

Somehow along the gallery wall

time got lost in the paint-by-numberings

while unfinished in a corner, sat a portrait

pushed aside with day-to-day encumberings

 Dreamsight faded into monochrome

the past leaving a large lasting stain

if only all unwanted marks could be washed away

like  watercolors in the rain

Love struggles for breath

when forced to look at herself

She lives purely so others

can smile in their mirrors

But, often, she is

confronted by apathy

upon reflection

 

 

 

Change Of Heart

HPIM3404

I forgive

though the texture of my heart

will never be the same

Once, it was so smooth and soft

back when I only knew

that I just wanted

to love all others

Now, I’ve learned that

such a pure simplicity

will constantly be challenged

when nothing in life

could matter more

But why couldn’t you

just let me keep believing

that the sweet pure spirit

of love, would insulate my heart

from any permanent damage?

False love comes in an array of guises

many of which affect our sight

but that which you allow to enter your heart

should make you and your world feel light

True love does not rip your soul apart

it simply fills you with joy, breath, and life

HPIM3140

Taking a back seat

may be the best choice

for taking in

all the beauty

along the roadside

instead of risking

a likely crash

as driver, if you fail

to notice the signs

of an upcoming dead end
