THE END OF THE ROAD, DAY 30, POEM 30

And so here’s to one For the end of the road, Words have been written, Sentences steadily found sense, Poems put together, pushed and pulled On pages being published, hauled And heralded, heard in hushed homes Where hope is heartily housed and harboured, Here’s to the unbelievers The cynical thinkers of thought, Leaning to maths […]

ELEMENTS

There is a sea On front of me, Its waters awash With possibilities, Waves of wisdom, Its tides tickle my toes Tempting me into its depths, There is a sky Above me, Rolling with clouds Of cotton candy, Pillows of potential, Folding and flexing And forming my future fate, There is water in the sea […]

BY A MOMENT IN TIME

What do you see in me, As your eyes bore into me, Review me, regard me? Are you looking at me, within For a version of yourself, without? A comfort, consolation, connection?

LIFE TIMES

In a time of love My heart will beat To your name, In a time of hate My heart will pound With pain, In a time of creation I will water the seed And the flower shall rise, In a time of destruction I will protect my love And comfort his cries, In a time […]
