The Many Ways of Truth

Some stories are like that, though, strange in the telling. Some people do not trust stories, thinking them inferior to the real, to what they like to believe is the truth. The truth, though, is never that simple. There are many truths, many ways of seeing the world. Some of those ways are better thanContinue reading “The Many Ways of Truth”

The Blue Notebooks

So many things lie out there, beyond the reach. Each hand reaches out to touch and to hold, hoping for the feel of some human warmth against the cold. Each eye opens, wanting to see the light of possibility pulling the day from the darkness. Each heart beats with the need to go on livingContinue reading “The Blue Notebooks”

Word Magic

Just forget everything else. There is nothing here except this empty page that waits. The hesitant footsteps come, slowly, tentative at first like some cautious animal stepping out over the page. These words, like this, have never been here before. Each blank page is something new, something yet to be. The words become like footprintsContinue reading “Word Magic”

That Talk of Bravery

The tales and the legends talk about bravery, about the great warriors who saved the day against the odds. They call me brave because of what I did. But I did only what had to be done. There was no other way. If that – having no alternative – is bravery, then I’m sure everyContinue reading “That Talk of Bravery”

Under the Sky

Under the Sky When all these notions fall beneath the sky That covers us, while standing, waiting here For time to bring a deeper knowing, time we understand now why this rain still falls. We stand here looking out towards the stars, Not understanding distance, how it grows And changes over time and time again.Continue reading “Under the Sky”

It happens slowly and carefully now As though we’re making something newly bright And precious out of these once empty words. The time around us turns upon itself Always on theContinue reading “Sharing”

Beyond the Horizon of Ordinary Dreaming

Beyond the Horizon of Ordinary Dreaming In motion, dreaming on some wide far seas A breathing wave that lies below the blue Slow undulating restless sheets of night. She swims on, deeper into her own dreams. A floating freedom, taken where the tides Wash her towards new lands and to new loves She never knewContinue reading “Beyond the Horizon of Ordinary Dreaming”

Mistakes

Mistakes We now are almost ready to begin. This is the place it starts, beginning here. We find these places and we create times From those we take with us as memories. We cannot shape these moments held so tight Into a final form until we know The shapes they should always then take beforeContinue reading “Mistakes”

The Echo of His Absence

The Echo of His Absence Her father was like a ghost to her. She lived inside the echoes of his absences Like someone waiting for something To take her life and make it begin. She needed someone to take the day And open it out for her in his palm. To show her how timeContinue reading “The Echo of His Absence”

She Stops

She Stops She stops, her hunger unsatisfied By all the goods on display. Easy purchase for the empty soul. She stops, her needs unsatisfied By all the attention given By many men eager to hold her name. She stops, her desire unsatisfied By all the hollow satisfactions offered For her hungry mind to feed on.Continue reading “She Stops”
