Earth Pig

An Earth Pig
Always eating
Really loud
Did it eat you too
Very tedious
Although time stops for no man
Reclusive by nature
Kicking up the sand

I know

I know
The rules don’t apply
Waiting for emptiness is tedious
Short meeting are frustrating
At the end and starting new

Wilderness in an urban setting
Surmised and unnerving
Eloquent speech lost on the bewildered
Ardent stare of the eyes

Technological dawn
Enthusiastic disconnect
Growing in intensity
Ultimately tethered by circumstance

Conduits of the needy
Monotonous days
Clothes sweating

Empty beach

Empty beach
Sitting on an empty beach
Not a soul around
Writing a poem
Lyrics to a song
Words that will go unsaid
A song that will never be heard
Just crawling out of this pen
Like the dawn
The silence is deafening
Sand smells like seagulls
And the salts of time
Water so giving
Wind floats laughter
Soaking up the happiness

Half remembered lyrics

Half remembered lyrics

Uncomfortable memories
Playing like news cast
Noise in the background
Eddied, drifting and seldom
Going any where interesting
Tethered to curious isolation
Frailties of the human mind
Boredom contagious
Torpor without peace
Sluggishness without serenity
Despair hidden
Imperceptible flicker
On a translucent horizon

it shall be

Forever can last a tear drop
Life is made up with questions
Only those strong enough will walk through
Can anyone do the impossible?
Convincing one is intrinsic
In this place at this time
Not everyone can see the beauty in the wind
Any where is a time in the future
Until next time
Convenient strangers
I am asking now about the color of musical notes
Not ever thing is as it appears nor does anyone really care
Including the longest word in the English dictionary
Have the tool to figure it out but not the will
I see that people can hide behind walls even when invisible
Leaving by the front door
In this space there can be a blank
Pulling relations apart
Infinite can be a life time or less than a second
Lifting a soul off the floor can take a second
It is believable for a life time though
Fabricated affection can burn when is painted even with the best intentions
Intention are not meant to hurt but sometimes
Conflicting messages can too
All anyone wants is honesty
Total and complete honesty even though it burns a little
In a sentence or two
On a warm day with the breeze blowing just so
Now that is a possibility as the weather is always true

Never is!

Never is a long time
Always waiting
Really tired of this game
Can you believe it?
I am going to have to leave
Sad but that is the way it has to be
Sick games are dramatic
I will call from time to time
Some day is just another day
To many days between
Is some day forever some where in the future?
Cannibalized reality

sEven Boxes

seven boxes

each a different colour
each a different size
one has my soul in it
everything that I remember
another has three pieces of a puzzle
one little box has all my possessions
just stuff from here and there
one box is empty
off to the side
two boxes are filled
with other peoples stuff
one box is filled with keys
all the same kind
only one can work
all are filled with questions
one of seven points the way
clearly for one on a path
obscure is the route

lost and found

Lost in found

Looking through the haze
PhDs stealing the way
Move forward through the pain
Life in storage
Watching the sunsets
Ending one chapter
No interest
Narrative hoping for greatness
Self imposed exile
In a community filled
Rustic existence
Tainted by lies
Believing in the impossible
Lost in found

summer of storms

Summer of Storms
Windy and rain
Divinity painting
With smell
And sound
And lightening so fine

Taste the exhilarate
Adrenaline pumping through
Feel it in your chest
Hear in your ears

Intoxicating smells
Windy burning
Rain refreshing
Colors amazing

This is summer on the flats
Sky from horizon to horizon
To be on gone
Breathe it in

Summer of rain

Summer of rain
Cold refreshing rain
Keeping the dust down
And the spirits of many

Drizzle and grey
Downpour everyday
Somehow it never fades
The effect it has

Reminds me of a time
In the mountains
When we walked
In the rain to a lake

It opened up in the mist
And there it was
Fishing and keeping warm

By a fire
With the food
And warm
