THE QUEST FOR LIFE

Folder: 
FOLDER 2011

If one
could step
into the
midnight, let
darkness
surround.

Pull a
blanket
over their
head,
become
invisible.

Attach
themselves
to a leaf,
blow away
in the
breeze.

Float on a
cloud,
move
past
tomorrow.

The quest
of life
would be
no more.

STEPPING ACROSS

Folder: 
FOLDER 2011

Stepping
across
the
threshold
of time.

Life
does not
always
paint a
pretty
picture.

We are
what we
have
experienced.

Life
the great
equalizer.<

THE DARKEST NIGHT

Folder: 
FOLDER 2010

The darkness of
night
has vanished,
the sun is peeping
through the clouds.

The future looks
bright and sunny.

You are standing in
the sunlight
waiting for me,
with arms and heart
open.

I beckon to you
come and let me
love you.,
my dreams have
become reality.

Waiting for you to make my dreams come true......

Tomorrow may never come

We take for granted what we have today that we may not have tomorrow.
If we lose what we have, we'll drown in misery and sorrow.
Go hug your family and tell them that you love them.
Let them know that you're always thinking of them.
Nobody knows what the future may have in store.
Don't say something tomorrow that you could've said before.
Tomorrow may never come so please don't put off what you should do today.
Appreciate your family and friends now because you never know when they may be taken away.

OH THAT TAPESTRY (revised)

Folder: 
LOVE KNOTS

Oh that tapestry
how I have yearned
to weave it with you.

A combination of
threads
gold and silver.

Strong and secure
closely knotted
in the end.

Tears and laughter
woven together
creating us.

Our lives inter-
woven
a coming together
oh that tapestry.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Life's tapestry oh so strong.

Spins, sinister spinsters' splinters

Axis slightly askew,
the morning earth turns,
spins itself forward
to let the sun peep,
and then climb into
the houses and hopes
of those with houses and hopes.

A dim light beckons celestial rays.
They glimpse the early worm
as the bird begins its dive
axis slightly askew.

In a ritual almost universal,
dreams check their flight.
Resigned to awakening,
sleeping forms stir,
some to arousal,
others to break lonely wind
that no familiar nose will smell
but their own,
axis slightly askew.

Something shines. Tinged with crimson,
it recalls the colors of the day, slowly.
Slowly thoughts rediscover their sounds in words.
Men reinvent their substance from shadows
axis slightly askew.

The atheist wraps his uneasy belief,
in the certitude of lack,
the believer his lack of certitude,
in the certainty of his belief.
Poles that had collapsed, huddled
in the secret uncertainty of the night,
now spring apart-scornful, bristling,

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Dedicated to all those who spin with their axis slightly askew

If You Only Knew Me

If You Only Knew Me

 

I'm not an athlete, and I'm not a genius.

I'm not a guy who finds it easy to trust,

but if you take the time to figure it out I think you'll find that my love

is like no other...

 

I can't run five miles straight,

but Im not a man who likes to run away.

I can't believe...in something I don't see,

but I don't always look with the eyes on my face...

 

If you only knew me then you'd see

just what kind of man that I can be.

If you just take the time then you will find

ANGER

ANGER

Elise gives a cold kiss to the angel, ready to break his wings…

      “Let me take you to the land of broken dreams, where no fears equal the horrific reality! A place, which I have, learns to love to avoid the bitter disappointment of faith. devotion a word as empty as my heart felt today…”

“Love is only a state of mind, an excuse for loneliness, the most hypocritical form of relationship. My kisses for you are naked of lies, pure as air.”

Elise holds the angel closely.

      “You walk through lands of emptiness, filling yourself with silly beliefs, hoping for better. Hope does not belong down here! A basic emotion made by simple mortals.
Grab all the pleasure you can and extract!
The essence of it all without expecting for more. Look at me angel; I am the perfect living creature…”

Elise senses the warmth of the angel.

      “When friends and family turn to ashes, you fall deeper into some abyss of faith, blind of hypocrisy, too afraid to face the holy hollow, the divine emptiness of life, the beauty of space…”

Elise caresses the angel’s face with icy fingers.

      “Fly to your god, before my anger break your wings; tell him I do not want his love. Regrets and sympathies are too late. I have learnt to grow my own flowers from my private darkness where his divine light never came upon me!”
