    The Damaged Tree

    .......To see a world in a grain of sand, to hold what falls in your hand. To know the future, but be surprised it takes place as long ago planned. Like an artist takes his tools out to paint. A long lonely walk he takes. Down the path through the holler. Up a hill, pass the...

    Love's Sweet Cup

    My Lord I seek the peace of her love, It's completeness would me sustain, I long to drink from her loving sweet cup, I ask I not search in vain. Tell me Lord, shall I ever know, The touch of my love's caress, Shall I taste of the nectar, so filling ... Complete, That would flow...

    I'm invisible When I'm by your side My words

    Here

    We've met and made a connection, Without ever seeing one anothers face. The blooming bud of a brand new friendship, Culminated in what is termed cyber space. We are starting a brand new journey, Walking together on a pristine path. Learning brand new things with each and every...

    Mermaid

    I love the beauty of the sea Within its depth a part of me No better where I'd rather be The only place that I feel free. To breathe within its briny air To feel its breath blow back my hair At the blue horizon stare That is where you'll find me there. I hide within its shallow...

    I Met Myself On The Street Today

    I met myself on the street today, I was looking rather pale. My eyes were red, my hair unwashed, I didn't look too well. I tried to find the courage, To ask me what was wrong. I've known myself for quite some time now, We used to get along. He looked at me with anger, I've never...

    MYSTERY Funny how you think you know Everything

    The Flower Show

    Today, trapped like a fly between the curtains

    and the window pane. Desperately trying to enter the paradise outside whilst some invisible force kept her back. Exhausted she lay listlessly, feeling all hope drain away. She watched the sun go down and hoped she would live through the night to fight another day.

    Winter's Warning

    Lonely Tree

    Sometimes I wished I'd have toys, other years games. But I don't really remember when, I wished for a woman in my bed. Maybe when I was ringing groceries, into a laser eyed counter. Maybe the first time my car got stuck in a snowy patch in winter. But I remember the boughs of...

    Deepest fear, a black turbulent soul of ash,
