Poetry Series – “Autumn in the Skies” – 20/50 – “Unforgettable, Regrettable” – 10/9/2021

Make me swearTo a false worship upon your idle sands.Weeping to fill in the starsToo fewIn the reflections upon a nighttimeOcean, stilled in motion. Crying for the west,While we raised our eyes to the east.How long was the horizon?What was the temperatureTo our sensation, in the fire?Bent wings,With unchangeable expressions.Outside the span,To a nullifying numbness.… Continue reading Poetry Series – “Autumn in the Skies” – 20/50 – “Unforgettable, Regrettable” – 10/9/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 16/25 – “You were All, for Nothing” – 10/9/2021

A lifetime agoWith as much, never enough timeTo write the draft, differently.Clocks stopOnly when your lips were smeared,Only when the fire came most aliveIn the salienceFor twin shadows being monarchs,Outside our tombs. Someone died, long agoWith devotion staking his heart.Blood rebelled,Running against the pressure.A lifetime agoTo rewrite the scriptSaid aloud, in the eclipse of a… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 16/25 – “You were All, for Nothing” – 10/9/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 15/25 – “Abrupt Release” – 10/9/2021

Was it a brief sparkThat lit the pathwayFar apart?While our hearts burned on oil,Becoming the plume,The ashes we released fromLips most kissed, beneath the blue. Sequence,With many unfurled sentencesThat kept our eyes closed,Focused on the scars where daylightIs the evening through,As morning walks upon the thinnest wire. Once a beginningTo the sun being born, for… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 15/25 – “Abrupt Release” – 10/9/2021

Poetry Series – “Autumn in the Skies” – 19/50 – “Kisses for Sunsets” – 10/8/2021

Kisses for trainsRunning through tracks, as youGo through feeble times,With infanthood in your head.An egg had fallenTo be the still-born, to be the same weather-wornRock of smoothness beneath fading sunlight.Near a river,Once the statue carved from a boulder.Now the pebble, becoming dust. Ravens overhead,Hearts that tremble from dread.Kissing the sunset,Same with your neutral expressionThat folded… Continue reading Poetry Series – “Autumn in the Skies” – 19/50 – “Kisses for Sunsets” – 10/8/2021

Poem – “Autumn in the Skies” – 18/50 – “Open-Mouthed Dive” – 10/8/2021

RetractingWithout subtracting.WithdrawingWith the gun to shoot in the directionOf your vacant heart, in the dark. The open field,Where thunder struck to fuse two forms.Two eyes to seeBeneath a tarp that holds upThe rain.It cannot shield us. We love,Mystified.We build,Being deprived, next toOur aching oceans.While walking as Christ upon waves,We are faithful, and forsakenWhile bloodCovers our… Continue reading Poem – “Autumn in the Skies” – 18/50 – “Open-Mouthed Dive” – 10/8/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 14/25 – “No one Got this Far” – 10/8/2021

What loveWas a purchase, not a sale?What lifeWas not stolen, did not resistIts abductionTo the imprisonment of a heart? Whose footstepsWere not covered by the snow?When lovers walk backwards,They were disguised. Whose eyesWere lifted to the sun?That bright, blinding spotThat were like motherly armsTo the love that was a guessTo a future without fear. This… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 14/25 – “No one Got this Far” – 10/8/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 13/25 – “Finding you, Beneath” – 10/8/2021

Beneath the stones,Hearts just areThe same stillness in the rush,Among where empty voicesAre cartedIn the night's wind. Funerals forThe deepest kiss,While eyes are never wateredTo raise a garden from the soul.Eyes are discardedTo look uponThe silver vapor from faint breathsIn the mesmerizing winter. Finding you,Beneath the waters.Living in the same state as you,Beyond borderlines.Beyond where… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 13/25 – “Finding you, Beneath” – 10/8/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 12/25 – “Born into Fruit” – 10/7/2021

There were tracesLeft to the reminderThat your form took awayIts ease, in the play.You escaped,Round in cheeks.Bottoms up, faces lowTo the sound of another carnivalYou might show clown colors. Another moon for the dim arrivalTo another night without truth.You tremble to the same rhythmAs the final flickering lightTo a cursed day. Another sunThat exited from… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 12/25 – “Born into Fruit” – 10/7/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 11/25 – “What was the Game?” – 10/7/2021

Were we both miles apart,For faces open?With grueling smilesEven more expressiveThan the heart did beat itselfUpon the crippled pathway.With defeated glancesThat flood the waves,ApartFrom our wind-torn eyes - We will still reap what we sowIn fields still stainedWith sweat, with diseaseThat grants the same blue bloodTo the evening eyes - Deep in the sores of… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 11/25 – “What was the Game?” – 10/7/2021

We were notMeant to be more than the sunset.Just humble twins,With aching heartsBleeding the same blood,Holding the same handsTo the sameConnected pulse. Rhythm stopsAt the choosing of tears.We crossed the same oceanWe also drowned in.We knew notIf the tides carriedNor abducted us.We kept our heart closeEven within storms. We loved,Even while we were ashes.We remainedEven… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 10/25 – “Everything as Nothing” – 10/6/2021

Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 9/25 – “Is there a Possibility?” – 10/6/2021

Is thereSome sentiment I have left,While this heart keeps beatingWithout breathing lungs?While this life move on,Is there a cliff I must findTo sing praises to you,Beyond the need to find the windThat will lift me? While this chest rises to fall,Same with the sun,I can step closer to your sideEven within dividing currents,Even among the… Continue reading Poetry Series – “One to Listen for” – 9/25 – “Is there a Possibility?” – 10/6/2021

Quote – “When Humans & Money are Equal” – 10/5/2021

"To give the pauper the sum he won't forget, cannot occur. He will forget it. If you have given it to him, you just might turn your back to move on with your day. Give the homeless pauper the entire world's wealth to build a kingdom, and perhaps soon the king, once a pauper, for… Continue reading Quote – “When Humans & Money are Equal” – 10/5/2021
