Sailed Off

Shivers
And now I’m listening intently
Observing with gentle dedication
And swallowing emotions
Music soft and wrapping around me
And flowing through me
Like cold water tap
And sensation over me
That music like poetry
That touches a river in my mind
And sails me back so far
To where I was dreaming
Some long off time ago

Digressions of Gratitude

Heaven descent
On concrete cement
On this suburban avenue
I am bent with gratitude
And pause lament
To halt and view
These blessings I’ve kept
Here I am caused to stop
From inward contempt
And with this quick moment
Feel a heaven present
See my soul rest
Sudden peace commence
Under shivering fall trees
And quiet traffic far off
And ever craving I call
With gratitude given
And holding hard
I take time to digress

Quilted

Lovely lives so painted
So cracked and colored in
Each new beauty
Is torn at the rims
So shredded but rebound
With stitching thread wound up
And all the corners gowned
With colored patching
And put together, traced
With every color
And thick, golden lace

Child’s Sight

Art obsession
A redemption initiated
In seeing things deeper
With a new lens
Opening up in other shades
Like a new energy
Pulsing under skin
Crawling electricity
Lighting up senses
And tingling in each little finger
Feeling light and curious
And motivated to move
And seeing things never known before
A light long lost
An intimate bliss incarnate
A child’s sight reborn
In older eyes

Streams

Fly away me
Go hide there
Pain like flash
Like hope falls
Like builds up
And bursts to tears
Like torn, tangled
Mottled grief
Like fly, far away
Like sink, so deep
Like sing
Like so many colors go
And all spin around me
So quietly
So white noise rushing
Is anxiety
Is pain like flash
Like dull engulfing
And cannot hide
Flat out flayed
Here and open wound
Like glass castle shatters
Yellow petals trampled
Echo in this well
Fly away me
Like sad jazz
Hide there in loud music
Hide there in beautiful art
Deep in thought
