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...

"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,...

Rain

I am caught in the between - between where I once was and where I thought I should be. But with distance the past isn't as it seemed and where I'd be, the path isn't as I thought it would lead.   *** *** Something has changed...

Infinite

"Solitude is a silent storm that breaks down all our dead branches; Yet it sends our living roots deeper into the living heart of the living earth." Kahlil Gibran   *** *** ...

Kindred Souls

I cannot remember all the words I might have said, Any more than I can give you All that might have been But I have quiet words to say That if you listen You might still hear A memory yet to be *** ...

Pearls

"And that that which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space." Kahlil Gibran   ***   *   *** Why do...

Just Words...

Words. Words conquer distance, And words transcend time. Words conjure up memories and memories, dreams. Dreams are alive, dwelling in ether, Like will-o-the wisps dancing midst reeds. Words are a...

Why?

I’ve often wondered at depth of night Is there farther space beyond where the stars appear? A place that’s stranger to the light, Silent, Black primeval night. *** *** What is the depth where...

Shadow

What speaks disquiet to my soul though my feet keep steady tread? Errant whisperings of memories disposed to no more give me rest. Not in sleep or dream upon the bed but in consciousness my memory's wracked…of the course I’m on.   *** ...

Tell me

Whatever my strengths Shelter my weakness in the comfort of your arms, And in soft spoke words, Fair and sweet, Whispered upon my ears  For ~ Ever you voice does sooth me And calms the storm within. *** ...

Daydreams

What are daydreams ~ Simply insubstantial things Memory and imagination mingled That hope might find her place Like prayers of child-like faith Suspended In innocent sophistication  For my heart still hopes...

Letters

I remember when you and your cousin Ann came to stay with your great grandmother one summer weekend when you were 17. I first saw you down at the pond. I couldn’t take my eyes off of you, you made sure of that. Then Sunday morning at...

Smiles

I’ve thought of you today. Too much goes on, time flies too soon, and yet, you come unbiden and I stop and smile… I write and I think, if only moments were you and not just words on a page. My words cannot capture you and the moments slip...
