On Faithfulness

Simple Thoughts

"Don't get so frustrated, 

it's only a book, 

or a few words

that you threw,


hoping they might stick.

Sound familiar?


especially if you've stuck with it.


Life can be funny like that,

in fact, it is,

that the same things

seem to alwaus happen


to people who may wish

it wasn't the case;

assuming it's negative.

Once you give it a second


to process,

it's wild to think

the same exact advice

you give


is the opposite

of how you live

your own life.

Some advice...


Twice now I've had to step in.

To stop the golden desires

of sundrops on skin,



when there has already been seeds sown,

a tree has been growing,

and now there's doubt,

the axe lays on its side


nearby. Nearly every time,

it can hurt to cry,

but not if infidelity

is the reason why. At least,


let's hope 

that's not the case.

I'd hate to see the fallout,

it'd be all over the place."

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Just some thoughts on my ever-increasing number of friends who have yet to reach relationship goals... 

Odd Man Out

Sometimes, I realize how different I am.


A shape that doesn't fit into any one particular place


Odd man out


When I look back on how versatile I've always been

Lots of different cliques, not a singular type of friend


Expending everything I have to be someone people want to talk to


But for what?


What am I searching for?



I can identify so many beautiful things that I have

In real life


A short few people who actually love me, for me


When I need them, they come through


In depth long conversation


Or just a simple cup of coffee because they're near


These are tried and true relationships



Sometimes I realize how different I am.


The tallest tree in the forest, towering above those who directly surround her


Or the tiniest grain of sand, undifferentiated, lost in an endless desert

So much the same, but uniquely separate in perspective

Nothing better, nothing worse

Just different...


If I had the choice to be somene else, in another place, another position

I wouldn't think twice before turning it down

I realize this isolation is an opportunity to turn myself around

I was once lost, and once again I will be found

I know I won't find myself in the struggle of another

So, I'll stop attempting to drown myself in the company of others

The silence, the absence, the willingness to be with me

The effort, The choice, The solace

It's become my sole necessity


Author's Notes/Comments: 

I'm in a weird space within right now.

Trying to find the strength to go radio silent and let the true friendships surface.

Trying to find a true friendship with myself, and rebuild my connection to my spirit.

Distance and space are hard to do when you feel like you'll be missing out on others.

But, it's time.

Hear my words

I don't say this a lot of times so you can consider yourself lucky to hear me saying this,
I'm not going to repeat myself though, even if you ask me to.
So listen well,
Look to my lips moving,
See my mouth open slowly,
Hear my words.
"I'm staying".

Thoughts from My Mind


Life is filled with ups and downs...

With many smiles and numerous frowns...

Heart felt words that were left unsaid...

Remembered too late..cause now you are dead...

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Life passes by so quick..I wonder if my mind is playing a trick..

Words Are Shadows

Words Are Shadows


I climbed atop a mountain,
I wish that you were there.
A shadow of the thing itself,
Is all I have to share.


My words are only shadows,
They're shadows of a time.
They're shadows not the thing itself,
That mountain you must climb.

That rare poem
he wrote...
which could enter
the heart
through portals
barred to words


Top of Form


Each night stars were screwed
into their blissful sockets.
Each night comets flew....
most ecstatic rockets
While hung on night's throat the moon...
a shimmering shining locket
Desiring only to slip into
her sun's warm heart pocket.

(to N A Lynch)

Tara is the emptiness
through which flute music pours.
Tara is desireless..
the zeros which
multiply other numbers.

Are rain arrows
shot by

Like caterpillars who eat themselves comatose
and then sleep as God weaves their wings
some are liberated after shedding their bodies.
In myriad ways God back to God all of us brings



The low guru river
from afar is invisible,
its green line of
disciple willows



Top of Form


when each leaf
is a stained glass aperture
through which the sun pours
into the cathedrol of autumnal light

He uncloseted his skeletons.
They'd been ripping his clothes.

Footnote: Unjust wars create
many skeletons for those who
promote and prosecute them.

Winter king's cruel soul
tries to keep his cold control
Gripping are his icy tentacles
as they hoard his power pentacles.
But green bud grows
as rain plumps it.
Spring will blow
trumping trumpets



Top of Form


All unrequited love will be requited.
All good wishes into life ignited.
All the blind..newly sighted.
All dark places slowly lighted.


Top of Form


Time reveals all love that's hidden.
Time fulfills all love forbidden
By God's mercy earth laws
Unexpected, suddenly
love comes unbidden.

Over the shoulders of winter fruit trees..
April threw pink shawls light as a breeze...

Over the shoulders of winter fruit trees..
April threw pink shawls light as a breeze
but two moons later they were tossed
for jade saris
with birds embossed

"The Ones We Lost"

Just a thought!

Where have they gone? There's no words to make clear,

They escape my every attempt to secure their discovery.

Lost without direction, wading aimlessly in the obyss,

They stand silent, awaiting any chance of recovery.

Some wait alone, some hold together in darkness,

Others seem to flock like nestling birds...

Many are lost, never to be found, yet we still cry...

"Where are the words?"

Author's Notes/Comments: 

"The Ones We Lost"

Speak the Word

Speak the Word

Hope is a power,

An evil Devour.

Love is a song,

Steady and long.

Peace is a bird,

A flock above the herd.

Yet these Words will diminish,

Unless we do not Cower,

Unless we sound the Gong,

Unless we Speak the Word.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Sorry it was short. I made that one awhile ago and it really touched my heart.

The Big Picture

Just a thought!

The big picture shrouds your pitfalls and woes

You speak wanting anyone to hear

Some listen....no one cares

Words echo into oblivion

You're only here a minute in time

You contend with the Earth

She's been here 4.5 billion years

She's heard it all, it matters not

Here to procreate and be processed

In the end you're worm food

feeding the earth so she may live.

Get over yourself!
