Moonlit Sky

An ole storm is passing
with drizzles of rain nearby
twilight starts to fall
as milky clouds roll by
the caress of a gentle breeze
crosses the moonless sky
tiny beams of shimmering lights
sparkle like the fourth of July
for the tempest has moved on
and the stars start to align
shining like beacons of light
high in the moonlit sky

Timing is Everything

With a rainbow in the sky

and the promise of light

when our eyes first met

the timing wasn’t right

everything seemed okay

as perfect as can be

but the problem was never you

it was always just me

these lifeless eyes blinded

by past insecurities

never allowing love in fully

as it was intended to be

for the very wish I longed for

was the one I couldn’t see

distracted by those other dim lights

and the brightest I thought wasn’t worthy of me

so in regret I entreat

that blinded eyes now see

the beautiful truth I pushed away

was always destined for me

can life offer second chances

will grace be kind to agree

that rare kind of love that came into my life

was a missed opportunity

so here I am doing innerwork

to set my mind free

because self-sabotage is real

it was never about you

it was always just me

You…

you are a blessing!

It Rains in July

“You will evolve past certain people. Let yourself.”– Mandy Hale

When sunflowers bloom

And the grass grows knee high

Who would’ve thought

It rains in July

The warmth of the sun

As sparrows fly by

A turn of the weather

A final goodbye

The summer is ending

The ground has grown dry

This love has gone jaded

It rains in July

Hearts are now fragile

You turned a blind eye

The season is over

It rains in July

Conversation with the Moon

As I gaze upon the heavenlies
A sphere of radiant light
Splitting open the evening sky
An illumination so bright

In latin it’s name is “Luna”
In greek they say “Selene”
The times I’ve had
conversing with the moon
Revealing secrets unseen

New hopes & past disappointments
Dreams that reach sky high
Whispers of things that no one else hears
Just between the moon and I

For that orb of night
Shares a glimmer of light
For anyone who draws near thy
As twilight falls
Watching over thee
Goodnight, sweet lullaby

Crossroads

I arrived at a crossroad

where two paths diverge

which road do I choose?

which way do I go?

Why am I blinded in seeking…

I don’t know

Is it mind over heart?

or heart over mind?

as I take two steps forward

leaving the past behind

Because no one will tell you

there’s freedom in movement

and life will be just fine

once again…

for what seems as an “end”

has only just begun

crossing over to new beginnings

this test in life I won

Sage

Ancient of days

what would you say

to the one who has passed you

along the way

Do you have tales

on men of old

who have traveled your path

as history unfolds

Have you seen wars

tribulation and love

the chronicles of humanity

in the makings of

Memories you’ve witnessed

the worse and best of mankind

recorded in the annuals of nature

and preserved throughout all time
