Whence Came You

Somewhere in the depths water drops off the tip of stalactites

Slowly free flowing, uneven decline, one after another in zig zag lines

Gently creeping, freefalling while sleeping, the echo of nothing 

Peacefully dreaming; a war in the mind laid to rest, no more weeping 

Seeping further into the earth’s hardened surface, wet and dark 

Cold and comforting, welcoming as death, as warm as your touch

With all the allure, why do you smile so brightly even where no one can see you?

Path Finders

Fireworks in the sky mark the grand finale

Color depth in the night hides amongst the stars

Explosions in my heart appreciative of the eyes

Looking down at the pages I write

Steadfast and nimble tracing letters

Words forming the foundation of my spirit

Happy

Even if I am always sad

To see you smile even if

Only the corner of my lip will lift

My soul reavers; take parts of me

I give to you so happily

My treasures for the world to see

You shine so brightly, lovely

Blinding o’ readers mine

I can’t see as we entwine

In paths of abstract lines

Find me
