afraid of what is underneath the anticipation
of a tear
or the welling up of feelings
There, there I say to all (more…)

the wilderness once more
no brilliant hues needed
to get to the point the day this day
is coming to an end
where you may find
yourself connecting the dots to the hours (more…)

It isn’t often we can stand
directly on the line where what is and what was
are on either side, a whole day
of acceptance in speaking in the past tense
while eagerly throwing thoughtful wishes
Of the future to all
when we come into contact with this day
before the next year begins
where we sift through
how we have lived a year (more…)

over the cliff simply float-falling cascading freely
soaring my boy is drawn

his mouth hoping to taste the abundant freshness

Collected colors dreams still
holding on the words not yet ready
to send their messages on memories
the days finding their resting place, shallow breaths
waiting for more inhales
before tending to the inside
For to some this space may feel
clogged undone untidy unmanageable out-of-control
but to me it is the waiting room
the holding place where if I am careful enough
I won’t lose any of its
wildly lived perfect truth and meaning
