Resilience

Bend

and sway

through

the disquiet

 

of this day..

 

unassuming

and resilient..

 

close

to the

moment..

 

like a child

at play.

Charade

Oh… the charade 

of humanity;

the treachery

hubris

all that is..

 

can we feel

are we alive..

 

will our hearts break

enough

 

to survive.

Distilled

All

I thought

I knew

for sure

 

is nothing..

 

I’ve been

dismantled

emptied

scattered..

 

distilled

and refilled..

 

the shattered pieces

settling

still.

New Days

Days rolling on

through dusk

to dawn; 

through

and

through..

 

with

or without

me

or you..

 

new days

becoming

 

seasons

turning..

 

new days

becoming.

Believed In

Forgiveness..

 

the experience

made manifest

within..

 

given

and received;

believed in..

 

love’s dominion

begins.
