Hitting Refresh

I rattle my brain
and need a refresh

Somber somewhere in the morning rain
I feel the fracture of my heart,
files are stowed
and eyes are transported

Truth is told, but the lies
are in the untold

Weapons we use
to overcome the unspeakable hum-drum of life,
marching idle worker bees, we are
looking for the honey pot

Yesterday I dreamt of adventure
in tomorrow’s unknown

Fucking someone in the evening heat
you might think you know what’s on my mind,
with mouths mirroring spiel
copies are made for eternity

I am rattled, I am
in need of my insanity



I am rising
From the depths of below
I have conquered
The black of beyond

I have seen
What I could be
And I drowned him
Defeating the fear

Glittering horizon
Waving blue
I exhale the bubbles
Inhale the promise

And cleansed
And weightless

I am rising
From within
Breaking surface
Gasping for air

The Path

There is a path we must follow –
A light, deep within our soul, to guide us

From afar something calls to our heart
To which we can choose to respond

We may stumble blindly over obstacles
That come our way and take a wrong turn

We make our own fate’s by heeding or ignoring
The feelings we harbor in our dreams tonight

The journey is fraught with challenges and
We must adjust our step to the terrain ahead

It’s a lifelong intuition that marks the way in this
Maze; but do we drown it in a logic of fear?

The lighthouse keeps emitting a signal –
A code of harmony only you can decipher

Take comfort in creating your own destiny,
In shaping your own direction through life

Believe in yourself; darkness cannot hide
What we know to be true

Arctic Blue

A light blanket of snow is falling –

Glitters white
Rays from the sun
Emblazoning clouds
Shivering pink

Naked earth gently wakes the day

Here the arctic blue
Lights up the sky
Waters freeze and
Melt with the flow

Winds sweep the twilight sparkle
