mead

for the reason to be recognized

a family type of feeling has to exist

but that has grown into

a grieving deep abyss which

does not provide relief and if I concentrate

I can imagine what it would be like

if I had gotten any reaction when

I reached out to bring any of the tribe

back together with each other

but now history and memory are

ghosts which whisper from the

edge of the stage

and I have made peace with my pain

because life has been so unpredictable

and what other choice do I have

but curl up

with my love and my dog

and be thankful

insist

after the “once upon a time” you dreamt
up while we were or weren’t here again
but now onto a mountain you grow slow groove like
maybe you knew you were or weren’t supposed to
be coming
over the times listed the person and where they
were meant to go and be
whenever a modern likeness has
shown you whereupon the elevator was and
“only” was a word we endured as well as “should”
on the roof in the basement or out by a park
not a single time we went out and i doubt you
of an often leaning tower of
meaning to be there or a
should have, could have, would have
type of late night free style
that gets there
but then
beware, beware, beware

yearn

hope is a friend not everybody knows
after all that has happened to the
vital corners of a heart so bruised
impatient to reach out to a time so crushing
near the end of the bridge
getting a sign that the flames are right behind
as people rise up to fight for what is right
gears grind in the machines behind the scenes
rolling cogs now see more than they did before
even the forests are a place we cannot hide anymore
every place you thought you could escape to is in danger
move the drive to get things done to right up front
effort counts for a lot when
nobody can predict you
take a moment to be thankful then
stomp that negativity into the ground

autumn

predators and the hunters
make themselves known every night out
if you know where to look for them
or where they look at you
sometime off in the destined desires
of the awareness that is needed when you go out
and it is only so many times that you
concentrate on a future you planned and don’t know of
when you forgive and get along with
clouds in personal storm that made you
pry into where you are doubting yourself this time
in no time you could recieve support and
for a moment see yummy delicious soft smelling skin and then
find out where the fireworks of self-analysis
made fire in your mind while the flight
of songs visit you in our only
winter moment this end of spring
decompression
of fear and then far too much silence
arrival

evening mourning

to look in your eyes
simply
just takes my breath away
sometimes
and when the moments last
it is magical
like the time i first
saw you little kind hidden smirk
it showed its face to my
slightly admiring with-a-sideways-glance
yet a type of awake but moon-glow
series of evenings going on
make all of the dinners extra yummy
when you know all that you could be
suprised by is the mimosa and coffee
delivered to you,
as you knew
could be true
when brunch with you is come through

advice

taking the moment
over the trees the small lights
like dots of shining revolutions in the sky
because a lesson has to be learned
there are people who dig for years to work and
find the one piece that many answer the question
and show them the path to thier learning
in whatever it is they finally uncover
and there are people who look
through tubes of glass and metal and calculations
to find out about the past that was
a group of energies that are no longer living
but still reach out and get a teachable experience
down to the opening eyes of a few who search
and all of them are doing what you need to do
by exploring the illuminations that your own past
can reveal to you if you can just be open to
the understanding of your own buried or far away
incredible personal nature
then you shall find exploring yourself
is the wisdom and lesson to guide you best,
take heart in the fact that if they can do it so can you

finding

facing the way that i know it should be
inside this decision that you made
needing rest and relaxation to continue
during a night which can decide everything
including final choices of the beginning of this year
nevermind what wishes you have brought out
getting out those words which have boiled inside you
definitely time to have this fiesty conversation
incredibly quiet and full of fire as you become
show the feeling which you have anticipated
through a wait which showers the mind with questions
ready for whatever revalation you will show me
after this month all the query time can
come back strong and bring along some friends
timing is important when the walls of heat are crumbling
i am not sure what the news will be
out of patience and not wanting to stay but
needed desire to be inquiring in a slow fashion
so i will do anything as long as you are happy

tick tock

there are times when the
sun seems to hide
the burning light and the air
washes over like a brand new year
everything hurts and there
are a great many scars
this river of time has broken
the roots of this rock apart
grinning as i speak through blazing ache
just pulling in air is a gift
and the mix of clock and actions
grip the afternoon like a arm wrestling contest
helping each connection weld
these interactions to the frame of
my rusted chassis and churning over the direction
of the final taste that
allows a calm sunset to
wink as the energy is
gone untill
that fire comes back with a vengance

true as a hunters full moon can evoke
heat that even the second winter breeze can allow
entering the months we get along with most
making the best of everything
across the abstract collection of choices
some hidden songs, a late night wait, a sign
taking the short road no matter what
even the roads know, you must have too,
ready finding a fight to get through
some tiny tastes that only so many people love
very bright nights make the travel better
only this and the embrace and kiss i have been waiting for
in the split second you might steal a kiss
cannot even begin to describe
each time i pictured this behind my eyes

please

put all of the worries in a basket
letting them drift off down the river
easy as a sunset going down
after the course of the wind has
shown true colors of this section of a
extreme range of the beauty of comfiness
romancing the path to our weak weekend
emitting the feeling of a final place of peace
leaking deep in your mind like an hourglass
aquiring a resistance to these everyday things
x is the letter of your least favorite medicine
intense as both of those pictures are
nothing makes me feel as good as
getting to have you here in my arms
