My life is an unchartered sea

captured in every drop of rain.

Just a thought upon reflection…

‚ÄčThat my words affect the page upon which they are written is of little consequence.  That my words affect the reader who lays eyes upon them is of greater interest.  That the reader takes something of my words into their heart to find a home for them is the greatest beauty to my soul.  That those same words might someday fly from their heart, be scattered to the winds, and be as much as a wisp of light upon any other living thing is the most miraculous serenity attainable; and yet one of which I might never be aware, nor need to be.  Yet, that my words are written remains as my inner peace.

Grant Me This Life

Give me the unspoiled riches
of this most beauteous earth,
and let me not breathe vain,
nor make light of its genius,
but to think better of myself,
tho’ I am still mere mortal,
I may marvel at its wonder,
thus envisioned, understand.

Toil my hands toward the sky,
that I may grapple with stars;
‘ere but leave, scalded by fire,
and left blind by their light;
give me then wings as hands,
and those same stars as eyes,
so I may then know the wind,
thus breathe life, now content.

Moments

There are moments like these,
when the wash of cool breeze –
a heavy scent of summer rain –
flows o’er me in sweet refrain,
and I am left with sensory fill;
made aware of nature’s thrill,
as all her forms dance divine,
o’er spirit and flesh of mine.

In these moments, incited thus,
have I the will to surrender us
to destinies once thought lost,
and willingly, pay dearest cost;
that as mine eyes cast in yours,
all we see are the open doors;
and with union of flesh now won,
we but wait for moments begun.

The Unquestionable Silence Between Us

image

There is music in the breeze
which now resonates a whisper
thru’ a dried patch of leaves,
strewn wild in unhurried array;
and with its vague soliloquy,
comes momentary recollection,
when no words were spoken,
but the dialogue of a silent gaze;
‘ere you smiled, unknowingly,
unflinching eyes, wet with tears,
and you whispered my name,
as the only breath from your lips;
’twas but a moment, lingered,
that your sigh wept with remorse,
knowing you could not stay,
and yet unwilling to wander alone;
I made a promise to you then,
merely for the sake of tomorrow,
that my heart was e’er yours,
and no distance could e’er erase us;
now, as I ponder that moment,
and live intently in present stillness,
I’m keenly aware, as ne’er before,
that Love is a kind of silent slumber.

Drip, Drip, Drip, Drip…

image

Drip, drip, drip, drip…
the empty rain, it still echoes,
dripping e’er wildly o’er the din
of yon tumultuous night birds
resounding in reclusive hollows.

Drip, drip, drip, drip…
so vile, these water splashes,
away you with your torments,
as if confined solely to me,
no rest, but dripping e’er still.

Drip, drip, drip, drip…
’tis not soothe, but cold of rain,
that shallow, hollow steel caress,
undying, as if by some prophecy,
wet and wan with its barren intent.

Drip, drip, drip, drip…
the cool vestiges of rain’s delay
bring yet this uneasy bit of relief,
but still, it slaps at tender flesh
with its vile drip, dripping stain.

Drip, drip, drip, drip…
quite mad have I become now,
so tortured am I by incessant ides,
away you, this watershed mind,
I see now only my sweet ferment.

Drip, drip, drip, drip…
my mind awash with the torment,
as of flesh ripped from my being,
and laid out, bare among the wilds,
‘ere am I, dripping, slipping away.
