Its Late...

  Its late and time drags its footstep’s sullen tread in that singular quiet hour when neither sleep nor dreams will come and I lie awake in the darkness of my room considering a thousand thoughts and none, to find what may ease my burden there. ...

If Only

  The long cold night of winter's past And the dawn awakens with a cool crispness to the air That seeks the warmth of day As winter waits, Hesitant,  Like a lovers kiss Which seeks to heal a wounding, And the other ...

Middle East Protests

Its interesting that protests for change of government are taking place across the Middle East from Tunisia to Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Yemen.  Not to mention recent protests in Iran. All are making news. The New York Stock Exchange reacted by...

Twenty-Something

Favorites wax and wane but if I was to have an evening of soft lights and romantic music Zoot Sims – would be my current favorite ~ perhaps not new, but unexpected ;)     Many places and experiences have touched me deeply in my life...

Butterfly

I dreamed I was a butterfly, flitting around in the sky; then I awoke. Now I wonder: Am I a man who dreamt of being a butterfly, or am I a butterfly dreaming that I am a man? Zhuangzi          In moments of quiet reflection I find...

A Kiss

“And what is a kiss, specifically? A pledge properly sealed, a promise seasoned to taste, a vow stamped with the immediacy of a lip, a rosy circle drawn around the verb "to love." A kiss is a message too intimate for the ear, infinity captured in the...

Challenges

I came home from church today and was thinking about my challenges and those that others I know are facing. Challenges are usually legit and are easy enough to find if thats what your looking for in your life. Anyway, I was...

And...

I awoke to a beautiful gift today. I was thinking of you. You and I. You and I. Separated on page by three little letters that ought to unite. And I wish I could replace those three with four which I may never speak,  No matter...

Time

  "What very mysterious things days were. Sometimes they fly by, and other times they seem to last forever, yet they are all exactly twenty-four hours. There's quite a lot we don't know about them."   Melanie Benjamin    ...

Chance, Just Chance

]  **** Memories come unbidden Drifting as the autumn leaves Which float slow swirls across my path On their downward spiral And I sometimes spare a glance to watch Their graceful minuet As I walk amid the flame colored...

Walk with me

    Its tween summer and fall and the day is warm, not hot, for a touch of cool stirs in the fragrant country air. And everything holds to green though edged with yellow and fading leaves begin to be seen, ...

Drift

 I speak but you can't hear the sound. The words fade to echoes before they leave my mouth. I don't know why I can't find up, I try but there's only down. Why? I don't know why - I can't see through...

Me

I'm a very private person so this meager as it is amounts to major revelations for me (make of it what you will) .         My favorite restaurants are dives. Usually...

Flow

People will always let you down so try to keep it perspective. They’re not trying to live up to your expectations they’re trying to live up to theirs – and in many cases they don’t even know what those are. But always expect the most in people for...

Missing You

Spring softly whispers anticipation as the world awakes from winter dreams. And easy enough the thoughts of you which never stray far from my mind …and I wish I could hold you now  As I have in dreams so many a winter's nights ...

My Creed

This post isn’t a trial and error effort towards punishing the guilty or vindicating the innocent for things they might or might not have done - which isn’t to say its a calculated effort either. I guess the age old question is: "What is...

Dreams

Why dost thou strive against [God]? for he giveth not account of any of his matters. For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the...

Pathways

Like a procession you walk together towards your god-self. You are the way and the wayfarers. And when one of you falls down he falls for those behind him, a caution against the stumbling stone. Ay, and he falls for those ahead of him, who...

today

In winter say the snow-bound, "She shall come with the spring leaping upon the hills." And in the summer heat the reapers say, "We have seen her dancing with the autumn leaves, and we saw a drift of snow in her hair." All these...

The Book of Things: one

They say to me in their awakening, "You and the world you live in are but a grain of sand upon the infinite shore of an infinite sea." And in my dream I say to them, "I am the infinite sea, and all the worlds are but grains of sand...

Ice

"In our minds, love and lust are really separated. It's hard to find someone that can be kind and you can trust enough to leave your kids with, and isn't afraid to throw her man up against the wall and lick him from head to toe." Tori Amos   ...

Drawings

I just want to conduct a little experiment to see which sketch people liked best. Just comment  and list your favorite sketches number. The number is above each picture. Any other comments are welcome. Thanks.   *** *** ...

Dance

It has been said   When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way.   ***   *** Speak to me at night with words half veiled,...
