WISH I WERE

WISH I WERE

wish i were a hurricane
that churns the ocean's floor
wish i were a rich coral reef
stretching from shore to shore
wish i were a tectonic plate
could move the earth around
wish i were a quake
that crevasses the ground
wish i were a drop
descending from a cloud
wish i were a thunderstorm
ferocious and loud
wish i were a streak of lightning
that brightens the sky
wish i ...

WELL SPENT

WELL SPENT

no dollar
value
a priceless
jewel
what with it
you do
is up
to you
no return
policy
just
possibilities
no instruction manual
or guarantees
only thing promised
is uncertainty
be wise
with this
short time
be gone
before you realize
there will
be slips
and trips
don't worry
about falls
they will
seem small
at final
curtain call
yes it's
elemental
here to ...

RATHER YOU GO AWAY

RATHER YOU GO AWAY

don't wanna tell
the truth
about the things
i do
so i won't 
lose you
don't wanna 
lie
avoid your
eyes
cuz what if you
say goodbye
don't speak
honestly
tell you secrets
about me
because you might
turn and leave
act like a
chameleon
so it
won't end
can't let my
colors show
so i keep up
the pose
won't reveal
my core
afraid you"ll walk
out the door

LIFE LESSONS

LIFE LESSONS

sometimes
feel cursed
cost more
than it's worth
why do life's teachings
have to hurt
lessons learned
only after
being burned
sun stops
shining
before we see
silver linings
something has 
to be gone
to know we
should've held on
not til
loved ones die
what they meant
do we realize
hard times
may be few
reveals character
in you
every
difficulty
comes with
p...

LET IT SHOW

LET IT SHOW

standing
here
insecurities
fear
gust of wind
you'll
disappear
get up
the nerve
put it 
into words
ironies
observed
no
u turn
moments
burn
faceted
gem
with paper
and pen
legends
filled
deep water
under still
be the
catalyst
express
your gift
no regrets
or what ifs
all you
need
to proceed
is to follow
your dreams
don't live on
could've beens

TRANSFORM 1

TRANSFORM 1

slither in
the blind
changing shape
in time
rearranging in
the berm
tadpole losing
its squirm
dragging from
the rough
to hop on
the bluffs
head out of
the hudge
cues from
nature's nudge
breathe in
formation
pure
oxygen
origination
transform
again
back to
seeds
root through
weeds
can't explain
the genesis
magic
twist
of a 
chrysalis
wings beat
back

BOUNTY

BOUNTY

went on
a quest
for a 
treasure chest
knew there
had to be
one out there
for me
wished for
fame
all would know
my name
from a 
chalice
i would sip
and be
diamond dripped
have
money
beyond
belief
ride in
a limousine
i would be
the scene
toasted
as queen
crazy myself
i almost drove
searching for
a jewel filled trove
imagine my surprise
when i found the key

SHIFT

SHIFT

they
say
ride
or die
only have
one life
don't have
to stay
til you
fade 
one way
street
same
scenery
next exit
stage left
to yourself
say yes
no need to
stick around
going over
worn ground
get into
gear
new trails
to steer
wings to
be spread
burning
tread
clutch
released
lightning
greased
full
throttle
freedom
unbottled
forward
thrust
leaving
dust

GUIDE

GUIDE

if
smart
to others
impart
educate
informate
what's learned
regurgitate
if an expert
preach
what you know
teach
if well read
and sure
be a
mentor
sharing
thoughts
can't be
bought
doesn't mean
squat
if what you know
isn't taught
use your
mind
to
edify
don't
hide
your
wise
use it
to guide

APPRECIATION

APPRECIATION

had a bad
attititude
no grace
or gratitude
came from a place
of greed
what was in it
for me
complain about the cards
i was dealt
oh so sorry
for myself i felt
couldn't fly
on one wing
boohoo and cry
didn't have any bling
only ball i caught
was thrown with a curve
never got
what i thought i deserved
whined a lot
about life
a childhood
of strife
no goals
no p...

BACK AGAIN

BACK AGAIN

do you miss me
at night
or is it
out of mind
when out of sight
a waste
of time
only handing me
a line
called me
one of a kind
now you're so
hard to find
don't get it
confused
used you
too
don't wanna be
a notch on
your post
just another
boast
now you treat me
like a ghost
started as
friends
said it would last
til the end
remembering
those words
is what

PHOTOS & WORDS

PHOTOS & WORDS

a friend
stopped by
asked
why
do others
care
what you put
out there
first i was
perplexed
surely she
did jest
get anxious
inside
when i
don't write
feel
light
after letting
it fly
yes it floats
my boat
so is it
ego
sending a
post
this friend travels
takes photographs
poetry...short stories
are similar to that
can't help
what i am
live in
imaginati...
