Mystery of Love

Love is life’s ultimate mystery A lock with only one master key Hearts beating with symmetry An invitation to create history There you are and here I am Cruelly separated by a witch’s curse Sending you one way, me another A kindred soul, not alone in the universe Searching the heavens my thoughts return empty … More Mystery of Love

Life is Short

I can do it, I say Convincing myself Then heart palpitations I return to the shelf No risk, no harm Keep the errors small Think before leaping Put the bat on the ball But this time I go With wind-packed sails Over the sunlit horizon With my friend, new trails

Shadows

Light and darkness dance Locked together embracing In a world of tangled gray A street lamp provides tracing Bending the blackness Irregular lines converge Eery globs in twilight Ghostly specters emerge Turning imagery inside out High definition into bareness Beauty becomes garish Altering the mind’s awareness A silhouette elongates an image A dream defenseless to … More Shadows

There are traces of you everywhere Wrapped around this smile It no secret how much I care Your shadow stretches wider than a mile There are traces of you in the rainbow Stunning me with your style A taste of you in that Bordeaux This hapless but fawning gentile There are traces of you in … More Traces

All That Matters

Written across the universe Each day birthing a new star Wishes sent skyward Traveling both near and far We can choose to see darkness Or be drawn to the distant light Like a beacon sending out signals Soon we will catch the next flight When time dissolves all we see Into nothing, just ancient dust … More All That Matters
