Impasse

I don’t understand
why life must end

I mean
my mind can crunch
the number theories bunch
enough to say
okay
that would be bad
but my will is strong
and my heart fights
to keep all the lights
on

Then when endings hit
too close to home
I scream
don’t leave me
behind
not this time
Nevertheless
I’m not ready to go
just yet
I fret
life is too precious
I must cling to every breath

still
there’s a fly on my desk
and I am left
bereft of any answers
except

I miss her…

Bury the Seed

Bury the Seed

It’s not enough
to plant the seed
you must bury it deep
within the need
The need that grows
as the river flows
is met by the sun
where the flower shows
The shows are wild
and free as a child
their scents wafting
pleasant and mild
The mild wind strays
beyond our days
to scatter the dust
for future ways
the ways that keep
the harvest reaped
So bury the seed
the need so deep

North, South, East, West

North-south-east-west
following my heart
is what I know best
Sometimes it doesn’t go
the way I think it will
Sometimes it does
or it just stands still
Sometimes it’s off
in outer space
Sometimes it doesn’t
quite know it’s place
but I hear my heart’s song
where it always belongs
forever a home
where it’s never alone
with family and friends
until the bitter end
