"In a dream, 
there was a 
farm abandoned

with stories 
yet to tell."

We Couldn't Have Known

thinking back


what is wrought 
from the prison 
of childhood and 
youth, but knowledge?  

wisdom fathoms 
that recall behind 
protective bars of 
innocence, unaware.

Viewpoint Of Solitude



















exile


you, me, the others are 
silent universes waiting 
for creation to begin again.

let's sit here in the meadow
and watch the past:  it holds
no future that isn't now.

Aftermath and Hope







expectancy  


lifespans punctuate thought.
we believe in moments of 
reason, wavering when 

extant visions of aftermath
border insanity.  illusion is 
camouflage for hope.

Sunlight and Music







"Sunlight writes the lyric of nature's music. 
The melody changes each time 
we open our eyes."
