The Sea

I look at the sea,
feeling it within my veins.

What percentage of me
is ocean, trapped inland
by flesh –

a landscape that can
foster life and
begin creation?

torment

he screams in the night
then startles himself awake
no one else heard him

For a Moment or So

Winds change their direction
Thoughts now entirely rest and depend upon intentions
It’s a way of life
It’s a part of life
It’s there in life
Temptation
It remains there for a moment or so
However, it makes it’s presence felt
Always.

sunrise

daybreak painting a tin star
autumn leaves and stepping stones
a long goodbye amid raindrops
not a single reason for sadness
drying my tears happy endings

Ticktock Goes The Clock

The clock of life ‘ticktocks’ quickly like silver lightening!
It’s moving hands never stand still as I watch the day slipping into the night.
Stealing hours, minutes and seconds of precious life moments,
Before the clock’s chimes STRIKE an end to the day!

Kids Without a Care

for being for living
skateboarding in a building
blocking a car
going far
having a drink
not old enough
do they care
do they mind
who are they
kids
