Tag Archives: thoughts


misplaced joke,

an ungloved hand,

stricken heart

stirring storms

on land.

To the

mourning dove,

heard from

wire perch above,


higher thoughts

than thoughts

of love.


Cold lips on closed eyes,

Winter ends with a Spring rise.

As mountains to skies.

We live


in our minds;


your words

do not answer

to mine,

and what eyes

have been denied,

we imagine


than they

have seen.

I’ve seen a man who has drowned. Found face-down, blotched skin, blue and purple tinge, bruises fading and swollen. Tide had brought him in, water swirling, earth set in its spin. Someone’s everything; feeling nothing for anyone, came to rest as nobody’s anything. 

Play of four,

or seat three,

minus one.

‘Red book’ rules,

from land of 

rising sun.

Hurl the dice, 

with a chance,

half night’s done.  

Trek the maze,

feel the speak,

small talk sum.

Follow gaze,

not deterred,

Long since won.

Draft Box

Journeys into the quiet, from daybreak till night takes day and beyond. 

You ask 

for my wholeness.

Once again,

I say

‘I am scattered’.
