Trapped in the Garden of Good and Evil

Trapped in the Garden of Good and Evil

Specific reasons
for times and seasons
drifting on a breeze
Why this
What if that
When will peace arrive
for all
These cringes we call in resistance
from the furthest fringes of existence
their intricate formulas
unintended for mortals
It is not our function
to bridge the junction
but to determine
the product of value
in the rhythm and rhyme
what might be divine
intervention
reinvention
to sign on the spinning dime
a thought
a line
a dream in time
committed to memories
For love or light
we continue to fight
live and learn
lesson the burn
teach in return

And when we are limitless
bear witness

Intricate details of the inexplicable soul

Knowing is not the goal
it’s feeling the whole

SkyBird Bound

SkyBird Bound
   -for my Sister

Take off and fly
SkyBird bound
your spirit is not tethered
to any ground

Dragons don’t dream
of places that seem
any better than this
or reminisce
over fallen stars
and their memoirs
Time marches on
too soon it’s all gone
They explore possibilities
with ease in the breeze
where landings are seen
few and farther between
Everything
becomes wing
Flight becomes sight
tears become might
heart becomes art
to the end from the start
and love for love’s sake
is never a mistake

So take off and fly
SkyBird bound
your spirit is not tethered
to any ground

Rainbows and Their Nonexistent Unicorns

Rainbows and Their Nonexistent Unicorns

Of colors and fantastical things
the zest of life from which hope springs
each pounding of the one heart sings
seven billion pitter-pattered strings.
Strummed by the light that darkness brings
we touch, but not, where spirit clings
as if we all were gods and kings

We are

in limbo

the details in our flightless wings
