Time Shadows

Time left me still 

Details have subtly faded 

The cold light of then, now shines

Like rid yourself of ghosts 

What if it’s you there’s no belief in

Memories are gilded cages 

Feelings cling Like cobwebs 

Their sticky threads still have teeth 

To purge the light is the only cure 

Creating shadows that obscure sundials 

Time uses distance against me 

I’m robbed of judgement 

Memories fill feelings into missing parts

Was the you, you back then? 

Or has me changed whom I was too?

Impression

What impression have I made?

Have I left a mold for precious metals?

Footprint squished into a riverbank?

Did I choose wax or steel to cast from?

Will I be lucky enough to be a fossil?

Will the next storm wash me away?

Time is no test man passes 

Is an anonymous legacy, a legacy at all

Demeter’s Tears ComplimentaryPo.em

While orange taloms of dawn scratch at fading moonscape

Demeter’s tears fall like shooting stars

Each droplet a new life founded 

Each droplet new visions seen

Widening landscape of inherrent possibilities 

Probability washes among rainbow beaches

Future Pasts Complimentary Po.em

Days of reckoning, days of glory?

Finish lines in moving sand

Vaulting into hyperspace

Passing future pasts 

Foot race to reason

Across ribbon candy fantasy land

Bitter

I seeth

           Water meets hot grease 

My sharp words dig 

                         But you’re 

                                Except when asked

Why I’m bitter? 

          It grows slowly

Then completely

Do You Remember? 

Do you remember 

when thought was evereverything 

We danced among fire

Never wanting to burn

We hoped for dreams

drama was not needed

Air was for breathing 

not to fill a pause.

Tomorrow’s allure

beat Yesterday’s issues.

We were caught between

What should be done 

And what I want

We wandered into the dessert 

We cast aside our second hand dreams

Embracing the hollowness of maybe 

We whisper ‘it’s better’ to each other 

We blind our eyes 

We still our hearts 

The Sun is darker

The night grows cold 

But my feelings yearn 

Return to those days 

Do you remember?

How did we ever forget?

Drifting Away 

I watch you drift 

Each passage leads you further 

You never look back 

Currents toy with your ambition

Eddies await to swirl your direction

On shore, any hope floats past you

Your empty hands only reach from afar 

Past the length of any arm 

Tomorrow you will out out again 

The tides await your efforts 

Again I’ll watch to see if you return 

We dance until the chord breaks 

The waves drowned the sound 

Until the horizon welcomes you 

 I’ll still be on the shore 

Waiting to see where you’ll go

Opaque Window of the Soul 


Your intentions are clear 

Why do we dance around them?

Like a broke compass pointing away 

I see the working within better 

Than I see the person you present

Toying and teasing worked years ago 

Long past the point of hoping anymore 

In your mind, justification wins 

In your heart, distance breaks even 

Lost individual adrift on unseen waves 

Tides come and go beneath your world 

Yet you spiral around blaming the rocks 

You merely stayed in the same place 

Everything else surely moved

The opaque window of your 

Colors us to your disliking

One day you’ll open it and see

Dear Death 


We spend our time hiding 

From what, do we ever know? 

Shadows tugging at our heels 

Or a scythe swinging unseen

Some hide from possible life 

The taker of last breathes 

You will run to catch me 

I’ll not go quietly into the night 

Good or bad, Dawn will be waiting

Look not for me Death 

I’ll return the favor

Ooh death
Whooooah death
Won’t you spare me over ‘til a another year?

Well what is this that I cant see 
With ice cold hands taking hold of me

Well I am death none can excel 
I’ll open the door to heaven or hell
Whoa death someone would pray 
Could you wait to call me another day

Ralph Stanley,  “Oh Death”
