Today I Saw The Sun

today I saw the sun
for the first time in 
a long time
a cheerful ray brushed itself
against my cheek and
under my chin
as if to lift my head for my eyes to see

and for the first time in a long time
it made me smile

Whatever You Do

If you don't like it how it is
Stop complaining.

Stop praying, start living
Stop hoarding, start giving

Stop waiting, start playing
Stop asking, start finding
Start hoping, stop minding

Stop whatever you are doing

Beyond the leafy boughs.

Yes, finally I clearly hear
What nature does avow
And I can see the sun at last
Beyond the leafy boughs.

Into my mind again I'd run

And wake within this broken life

Upon my wrist I held a kni...

I've been burned
And risen again
Proud of my new coat
Of feathers
I've been burned again
And risen
Proud of my new coat of feathers
And unafraid of fire.

A New Breath

He flung the rope 

over a branch of a tree

And fluttering down

came a few dead leaves

 

He watched them rest

upon the cold, crisp earth

And cursed his mother

For his wasted birth

 

This year of pandemic

Had him stripped to the bone

Made him jobless & useless

A bear in his home

 

Frustration begat anger

And anger begat fear

Unable to provide
