on a thousand different nights

and never pray

Wallflower

She tiptoed through life
Till one day
A forgotten melody played, her anklets jingled
She danced and the world was her stage
and her life she scripted

Her Journey

They left her all alone
One tear and one sigh at a time
She existed
Slowly, one prayer and one smile at a time
She lived

Walking Past

Stagnation weeps history
Thankful for dawn beyond darkness
Find your tear in the ocean
Whims challenge destiny
Thankful to you
My tear rescued in your hand

Recluse

Drowned in his favorite drink,
He thinks of his muse,
The world makes a mockery of it,
Now all he seeks is just recluse.

lull

not far from shore
he prefers waters
rhythm lapping hull
to the relentless rush
of tires on macadam

SHE

She is the tree
green & wide
abundantly dressed
overflowing
spreading her sleeves
blesses all
in her cool shade
solitude teems
with breezy songs
