rain and sunshine


sometimes I wish the rain would go away
and let the sun come out and play 

yet there have been times in drought 
I prayed the heavens open up and
release its tears upon our parched tongues


I guess I'm never satisfied with either

ducks on the road


the distraught duck stands in the street
another ones lies beside the road
I see it’s not moving
the other paces wildly
I drive around
slowly with
care

Him: Sevenling


when I think of you
I remember the firsts:
eyewinks, crushes and kisses

in time memories changed
to longings, fleeting liaisons
and unfulfilled dreams

I guess it wasn’t meant to be

forevers


forever is a long time
and it seems like days
pass us by like lightning
in a summer storm

and yet I still search for
your eyes in Spring clouds
as if we have all
of eternity to love

perhaps we do – maybe love
passes on beyond cold graves
where we turn to dust and
vines covers up our names

I wish could make my mind
believe in theses forevers
but it keeps telling me
I only have these short days

muddling


pulled in a thousand directions
I’m trying to find my way through
this journey to reach my place
but the paths are hidden by wild vines
countless voices shouting out “come here!”
I’m just muddling through this midnight hour
looking for that glorious light

the closing embrace

two lovers in an embrace
the conductor calls for
everyone to board the train
perhaps that embrace
is the closing chapter
and the tears in her eyes
are her parting words
