Dreamland Lies

Nightmares calling
from behind my eyes
see darkness falling
on broken skies.

Starved of rest,
I improvise
the truths of life
my mind denies.

Frustration builds
as my heart tries
to release its fear
of Dreamland’s lies.

Sleep will come,
I would surmise,
in submission to
deprivation’s guise

with stillness and
the silent highs
of surrendered will
and it’s muffled cries –

but nightmares calling
from behind my eyes
see darkness falling
on broken skies…

Beneath the Daisies

Beneath the Daisies
Tread lightly where you go,
old souls
lie weeping ‘neath the grass
in slumber for the last
moments.
Today is naught a morning past,
but daylight for the dew
of you.
Life goes on with and without,
time stops beneath the surface
(heartbeats)-
memories floating on a whim.
Return to me again, again…
Mother’s love.

Dead of Winter

Dead of Winter

School’s out
flakes are falling
each a different glow
blowing on the wind
drifting in the cold
sprinkles on the earth
like sugar cookie dough
before the summer bake
snow cream for tomorrow
after collecting in a bowl
the frozen tears of heaven
for joy and sorrow
look the same
snow-blind in the mirror
the element of water
a trip into the past
youth will grow the future
with a present yet unknown
but known in hindsight
as don’t let go
don’t go

I used to love the snow…
