    Our EP Gesture Dance

    Waking up in the morning, another day dawns, I rush to my computer, I flip the cold box on. As it's familiar sounds start, Time to pour a cup, I rush back to sign on, To see if he's already up. The "Sign In" is complete, Today begins anew, I gesture "Good Morning...

    Deeper Stranger.

    Deeper Stranger. My heart is as deep as the Hudson River. Its fresh with unpredictable currents. Once a murky barren zone is now the object of a mid summers swim. My mind is a twisted Christmas peppermint stick. Its stale and forgotten in your grandmothers garage, along with...

    In The Gloam

       In the gloam deep in the forest where the faeries sleep There is one who knows She knows the full measure of you; the flame your smile kindles The ache your brown eyes afford with every stroke And the wake you leave in your leaving. In the gloam deep in the forest where the...

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.

    Wednesday Morning I sat.

    A reluctant witness, to a rare desert fog. Watched a watery sun have his way with her. She seemed submissive. Leaving only tears on a bystanding landscape. I do guess, soon enough, there will be nothing left of her. I sat…and did nothing.

    A Sunny Day In Thalamus

    Do not be afraid of life,the pain,the peril and the strife.Do not shrink with fear and dread from the things that lie ahead. Do not be afraid to try-for no goal can be too high.You may fail but don't complain,you can always try again. Do not be afraid to speak,to adventure and to...

    I am the one, that we all are.

    A shining product of a fallen star. Not to be mistaken as the one we seek, A reflection of him, that tends the weak. Brought to see with Omniscient power. Activation within, the lotus flower. Peace of mind, and piece of it all. Piece of Universe, Never to fall.

    Pain In These Eyes

    When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything. You see emotions and their journey. Their heartbreaks and their fears. Their memories, maybe even eternity. Now, look into my eyes, And tell me what you see. Can you see the darkness, That lives deep within me? Can you...

    BEHIND THE WHEEL (c) 2015 Edward York Driving

    April’s Shower We all watched

    as they dragged her away. Sat stunned with fingers through the cage…as they dragged her away. Raced tears down by-standing faces…as they dragged her away. Closed ears from silent screams…as they dragged her away. We all watched…as they dragged her away.

    CRAYON ON THE WALL (c) 2015 by Edward York My

    memories never fail to flow, Back to when you were small; To toys scattered on the floor, And crayon on the wall. I remembered all the questions asked, On trips with just us two, Like why is the water wet, And why the sky is blue. Those times we had were simple times, Your...
