Week 242 ~ you’ve lost relevance as this tragedy

with 2 comments

me.242you’ve lost relevance as this tragedy
grows old and fading regrets turn to dust
dissolving into fledgling dreams that must
have always been here though not so shiny
life tastes better a path I didn’t see
until I stood alone at the door just
glistens in the sun beckoning and trust
-ing myself seems incredibly easy
today the light smiles beautiful flowers
bloom riotously pain doesn’t matter
though it took awhile to believe it so
I find joy in solitary hours
and with strength turn the corner now that you’re
just somebody somewhere I used to know

Now You’re Just Somebody That I Used To Know

week 219 ~ sing an old song for me

with 2 comments

me.219

sing an old song for me
one to leave me entranced
steal my heart achingly
sing an old song for me
relight the mystery
and joy so long distanced
sing an old song for me
one to leave me entranced

week 204 ~ passing music hangs in the air

with 4 comments

passing music hangs in the air
an incandescent filigree
of mist transcendent melody
that disappears and won’t be there
when I open my eyes now care-
fully so as not to disturb
the dream applause begins reverb-
erating off the walls and smiles
awaken souls who’ve traveled miles
to leave their troubles by the curb

week 190 ~ it was the pain in my heart that drew me

with 15 comments

it was the pain in my heart that drew me
to the music and Rio something stayed
in me then plucked the vulnerability
I could never share and then there I played
my way back to life saudade time will
hold lost happiness so open the door
back past the tears for joy departed still
shines brightly from what can return no more
then there I was transformed not tragically
dispossessed but found there in that city
of beauty and violence there personally
invited back to see beyond pity
the light of laughing dreams I made it through
to find once more that skies can become blue

saudade [saow-dah’-zhay] – is a Brazilian term, quite untranslatable, for one’s joy, tinged with longing and sadness, remembering happy events and people past that will not return.

week 99 ~ an interesting change

with 40 comments

an interesting change
in the light here today
clouds drift and rearrange
and old ideas won’t stay

in the light here today
I read my discontent
and old ideas won’t stay
my happiness is spent

I read my discontent
in every passing breeze
my happiness is spent
its got me on my knees

in every passing breeze
my dreams sing azure blue
its got me on my knees
and I hope to slide through

my dreams sing azure blue
clouds drift and rearrange
and I hope to slide through
an interesting change
