SNOWFLAKES: Poetry for Inauguration Day

Snowflake: a flake of snow, especially a feathery ice crystal, typically displaying delicate six-fold symmetry.  A snowflake is either a single ice crystal or an aggregation of ice crystals which falls through the Earth’s atmosphere. They begin as snow crystals which develop when microscopic super cooled cloud droplets freeze. Snowflakes come in a variety of…

Moments & Mirrors

Truly this is the endeavor of futile vanity. Taking time to write any of this. Totally self absorbed. Yet a journey should be documented. Why else take the trip?    I  have dropped from the Matrix.   Fought my way out.   Clawed till my fingernails gave way to scraps of finger flesh that are quickly…

Malfunctioning Rhyme Scheme, But Still Pressing Through

in homage to all those who struggle to keep the mood steady. peace to you, friend.   I can feel it coming the cycle full circle Too tired for running through the Dark again My body too beat, my soul too bruised My mind’s been raped, my love’s  gone unused   I am stuck in wonder…

The rain won’t stop

a song I wrote after being diagnosed with Bi-Polar Type II. Hang in their friends.   The rain won’t stop The river keeps rising Soon all I know Will be washed away Gonna let it all go Come, flood my mind If you’re going to take it from here Please take it so kind I…

Psalm 37:4

“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”   Resignation is dreadful, Sucking the breath trapped in lungs that are barely Hidden in a concaved chest cavity; Pulled through a choking windpipe Then seeping past freshly departed lips. Smell, the death of desire… Which is soon followed by…

Psalm 19:2

“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.” The evening clouds cut into the sky outlining above, a lost forgotten cove. Strewn with sunken masts of sailing ships and, plunder swallowed under. An alabaster moon full and spilling, illuminating, swimming below the water. The…

Psalm 2:11

“Worship the Lord with reverence and rejoice with trembling.” Ridge line trees almost barren. Still, a few leaves cling to a vestige of hope. Silhouetted on the rise against the clear blue sky on a warm November day. Thanksgiving. We move through the seasons. We traverse the face. At breakneck speed around an axis we…

Proverbs 25:2

“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of Kings is to search out a matter.” I wait. As the sun circuits the sky, I wait. As the moon follows close behind, I wait. Day after day, night upon night, I wait. For Your voice, for Your hand, for the…

Gauguin’s Escape

Loyalty wanes in the shadow of compromise When the sun begins to set and the day is tired. Where peace seems far off and every thing else Is immediately in your face. Visions of ‘Gauguin’s Escape’ tease at my own lust. Art is such an over abused excuse for selfishness. “Don’t you understand?” We cry!…

Timothy’s New Day Pack “The Wanderer.” (Esoteric Hiatus)

On a translucent highway the immigrant sings a song Though slightly off key, An opus none-the-less. A song ancient to his heart, An old folk song of yesteryear, Years he leaves behind yet still recalls. Not for fond remembrance, But for the melody within which propels him onward to that which is beyond himself. Beyond…

Elijah Wood and River Phoenix

As I sit on my front porch, the end of the evening, with the weather warm for the first part of autumn, I’m still thinking of a movie I watched tonight starring Elijah Wood. A talented young actor with life in his eyes that is evident beyond the craft of his gift. It is light….
