resurgence

i sat under an arabian jasmin tree
with a leaf on my mouth and a fire on my fingertips
it has been a long time since i've done something i once loved
i became somewhat aggressive, yet i dont hold no grudge

fallen too deep into becoming what i needed to be
takes time, takes hardwork, and takes responsibility
my question; will the sister of fate spins my thread?
"they are not real, you are ...

Breakfast

Let’s talk about Why no Job is worth your self respect,

Why we don’t take the time to make breakfast for ourselves every morning.

We forget,

Use an egg,

Crack it with one hand.

Learn to crack it with one hand.

Take our supplements 

Buy a French press

Why do we insist on allowing the cooperate world to rule our only world.

I got so tied up in not taking care of myself,

Encouragement

I can go miles 

with someone believing in me.

So, speak into existence, 

those words I need.

 

I’m not kidding,

or play acting a pose,

this isn’t a hobby,

it’s me you see, exposed.

 

My time is here, and

I don’t want to stop.

Give me that shout,

dissolve my doubts.

Twixt Pen and Eye

I, poet, may write of love

and in that moment feel

a meaning clear:

yet my soul knows love

my hand will never pen

 

You, reader, read that word

and think to know my mind  

 

              I say you cannot know the love

my heart placed behind that word, only

your sense of the love you thought you saw

 

The poet can never truly speak

and have his reader k...

The Door

Unknown reader, be glad that I have opened the door and let out

the dust of my verse for you to see an age after the words first found form on the screen, or

perhaps I have let in your imagination so, turning, you can see a single almond

blossom, pink amongst its pale russet leaves, to tempt your words out

 

Unknown traveller, on this day, stay, venture out

and, before they fade,...

The Fisherman

He waits

unlike most

and searches

through the muck

through the dirt and the dust,

the nails and worms

 

He waits 

for a glimpse of success

a meal for his minutes spent

on the water’s edge

a reward

for his tireless toil

 

He waits

as his bucket fills

alongside his hope

then empties

leaving his spirits all the same

 

For his catch does not ...
