Winter Sun

Blinding.Bright.Cleansing. Beams of warmth stretched out long.Piercing through only on the coldest of winter days.Glistening off the frozen earth. Invigorating.Energizing.

Winds of Change

The winds of change are blowing outside. Rocketing.Howling. Rattling the tree branches.Shaking the window panes. I rest inside my cozy house and watch the blustering and blowing.The rain streaming. I pray it does not come in,that it does not blow down my warm house. I think to the others who have no houses, who wander … Continue reading Winds of Change

Do they enjoy the trip, the chance to soar? I wonder how they came to wander, what made that first goose take to … Continue reading The Geese

Please do not download, copy paste, or otherwise use them without … Continue reading Crickets

Summer Breeze

Oh soft summer breeze,come caress my warm cheek,sweep across my hot brow. Lift from me my worries,my stress,my shame. Fill me with hopes,dreams,and calm. Send my spirit up into the leaves,to new heights,and a new perspective. Oh soft summer breeze,help me rest,help me sleep. So that I can waketo live again. All poetry and artwork … Continue reading Summer Breeze

You Were

You've been gone so longit makes me wonder sometimesif you ever really were. A distant memory nowthat someone could almost make me believeyou were just a figment of my vivid imagination. And yet,deep in my bones,in the pit of my stomach,I know that you were. Without a doubt,you were here. Right here.Tangible,living and breathing.And being … Continue reading You Were
