week 423 ~ jump ahead to the edge of now

with 2 comments

me-23jump ahead to the edge of now
lean forward teeter the abyss
beckons but catch your balance this
is not your time to fall allow
fear to recede breathe this is how
we will get through believe defer
the nightmare won’t last forever
we will find some moments of good
-ness moments of grace where we’ve stood
our ground staring down the future

week 358 ~ gathered in a wilted bouquet

with 2 comments

me.357gathered in a wilted bouquet
dropping petals moments of grace
a still life looking for a place
to bloom again for who can say
the laws of natural decay
apply to dreams in a future
changing underfoot to be sure
is to be mistaken to doubt
is safer to figure stuff out
is the goal but never the cure

week 356 ~ when there is a dream to carry

with 2 comments

me.356when there is a dream to carry
I hope that I will do my share
to move joy around simply care
enough to let the right things be
change some and watch the rest run free
recognizing there’s a new way
to move ahead with grace to stay
bound by indecision is death
so I pause just to draw a breath
then grab my mandolin and play

week 325 ~ if you would still believe

with 4 comments

me.325if you would still believe
in things you cannot see
there’s no room to deceive

here on this new year’s eve
as fortunes interweave
if you would still believe

 in all you can conceive
in all you long to be
there’s no room to deceive

 last year’s transgressions leave
with Iemanja sail free
if you would still believe

 in grace in a reprieve
to live on happily
there’s no room to deceive

 give heinous doubt the heave
trust in January
if you would still believe
there’s no room to deceive

week 290 ~ true as true

with 2 comments

me.290true as true
true as bread
me and you
in my head

true as bread
sing your song
in my head
I’ll hum ‘long

sing your song
clear as day
I’ll hum ‘long
find a way

clear as day
I’m right here
find a way
never fear

I’m right here
love’s true face
never fear
full of grace

love’s true face
true as true
full of grace
me and you

week 271 ~ the year rolls itself up

with 2 comments

me.271the year rolls itself up
you’re home don’t ask for more
drop your key in the cup
grab a smile close the door

you’re home don’t ask for more
when miracles appear
grab a smile close the door
stash your dreams some place near

when miracles appear
it takes time to believe
stash your dreams some place near
there’s no reason to leave

it takes time to believe
move on slowly with grace
there’s no reason to leave
inhabit your new place

move on slowly with grace
drop your key in the cup
inhabit your new place
the year rolls itself up

Week 245 ~ it began to rain soon after I left

with 17 comments

me245

it began to rain soon after I left
but I can still see her smile in my mind
radiant in the moment unbereft
despite all that’s been lost granting a kind
of benediction between us and this
day if we don’t ask too much or look back
we can stay balanced pretend we don’t miss
everything we were and embrace the lack
of memory or context to enjoy
our present forgotten but returning
again somehow eternal undestroy
-able in its simplicity a thing
to be cherished for its own fleeting grace
as a token of love time won’t erase

week 178 ~ grace under pressure

with 20 comments

grace under pressure
always to be hoped for
when there’s not an answer
grace under pressure
even when you’re not sure
what fate holds in store
grace under pressure
always to be hoped for
