Oh Winds Of Change

Oh winds of change why must you blow
and come roaring in like a hurricane
blowing my comfortable life to and fro
left in your wake, everything’s changed

And yet, the unknown is always there
or so say the stoics of centuries past
for comfort is but an illusion we wear
and life is never meant to endure or last

So Blow, changing winds Blow, Blow, Blow!
And in the end my weathered soul soars free
to explore other cosmos never known
floating on a breeze with gossamer wings

Music in D(eath) for Lost Souls

He plays the music calling lost souls who wander from life to life
These pitiful beings who can never seem to get living quite right

They return to earth over and over, to learn what they didn’t before
Traveling treacherous seven seas, searching the windswept shores

For though they’ve had many lives, they’ve never grown beyond
Those early un-lived ones and the questions they have spawned

As they hear the haunting music, to maestro they beg and plead
to help them find their other half to live as one through eternity

But what these pitiful tortured souls will never understand
Is that their hidden future lies in the palm of their own hand

I Am Water

drop-of-water-1004250_1280.jpg

I

am water

I am a mountain stream flowing

fresh and cold, clear and bright smoothing

stone edges, into a mosaic of painted hues adorned

by moments of my heart breaking and learning the inner

truth of my purpose to write until my bony fingers ache, to love with

every thread of my tattered soul. I am water, I am woman, I am a poet,

a dreamer, magic abounding in the most unlikely of places, a stranger’s

smile, the bloom of a rose, the flutter of a hummingbird’s wings.

Miracles, a painted dawn morning, a stormy sky

a dragonfly, a bird that sings, me.

Breathless

“I’ve dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas: they’ve gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.”― Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

In these dreams, I write in colors I’ve always known
for in my very breath flows shades of indigo
that at times catch, leaving me breathless
searching, always searching for more.

Born in fall’s waiting air, trees dressed in leaves
of scarlet and gamboge I entered the world
with barely a cry, such a solemn child
searching, searching for an eternal home.

And in her sweet eyes I peered,
seeing my own odd reflection
naught but a new helpless babe
with a shock of burnished red-golden
fine hair, nary a thought or care
of how I came to be there,
drowning in her indigo eyes
searching for home nevermore.

Imaginary Garden with Real Toads: Words to Live By

My Fervent Hope

“Death twitches my ear;

‘Live,’ he says… 

‘I’m coming.” 

― Virgil

And should spirit
move within me,
decide to take my soul
my fervent hope
for what I find
in the unknown
are those I’ve lost
who will greet
and welcome me home
The people I’ve loved,
and all my pets
waiting to say hello.
