    I won't be posting it,

    but I'm writing a poem for and about my father. It's been about since I've been able to write. I read the first draft on Father's Day and he was choked up (hard to do) and mom was in tears. Score one for homemade gifts. It was ok at the time, good to them, but it needs needs...

    Nothing Is As It Seems.

    Have you ever gazed up into the infinity of space on a clear night, in awe of the absolute stillness and inconceivable vastness of it? Have you truly listened to the sound of a black bird on a summer evening? If not you will see but not see, you will hear but not hear. Can you...

    Silence is the darkest shade,

    When sleep eludes my life. I need your words, make me laugh, Cut the blackness with a knife. So many say that they don't sleep, But seldom is it true. Frozen clock beside me now, It flies when I'm with you. I wish I could just go to sleep, And wake up in the light. Instead...
