The Lily

The grove within the forest leads to a river,
Where sings the frogs, dragonflies, and birds
And there they die away, quietly, welcomed by their young
Decomposing in the ground, their smells lost within others

The lily, drenched in dew, dries slowly in the sun
Near the water, soft, sweet-scented, true
She dries more and more, till dawn gifts her gloss
And again, she has beyond what she needs

Dripping, crying, the darkness cannot consume her elegance
Even in dying days, she shrivels with eternal fragrance

Reality Drops

Reality drops
Like a stubbed Toe 
Uncontrollably and sometimes close to a
Devastating fear of permanent failure
By thought
By course
By ability
Until we accept
Until we accept
And grin for the favor
Of the full torture of
Nature’s Reality
Again, and again...

Growing pains

All hope is lost, for fairytales
Happy endings are only fiction
High pitched whistles drown the bells
Only fools waste pennies, wishing

Dreams were big when we were small
Til we dose do’ed and swapped
Now we’re wise and know it all
The magic, abruptly, stopped

We began an early green
Then a striking red
It seems so very mean
How, gold will leave us dead

Mighty harmony

Slow and unfazed, oblivious to all, 
He came from out of the blue,
Gaining power to point in the path of our life, 
His passion and mania grew,

Summoning whoever marched by his side, 
Together growing big, growing proud,
Together becoming more an unstoppable force, 
Unhindered by feet on the ground,

Then all of his strength rose up from a thought, 
A perfect silhouette, perfect curve,
And with all of his might he cracked open his voice, 
The most beautiful roar to be heard,

As he attacked with one glorious increment of fear, 
He lifted his mountains, his tons,
Just to die all alone with millions of friends, 
His million small beautiful doves.

Lines of Comfort and Reassurance to My Sad, Lovely Lass

Give me drink, rest, and solitude—
these are all the things I long for;
give me as well your finest food,
and I'll ask of you, lass, no more!

My lovely lass, what's the matter—
why are you all down and alone?
Don't be vexed because you're sadder
than most, dear, for God loves His own.

Sweet girl, I'll tell you a secret:
if I were a young lad again,
I'd chase you for your sweet asset.
But as I am two-score and ten

years old (with wife in deed), never
can I be your white knight with steed;
but your sadness won't last forever,
if you pray for the one you need.

Grandparent At Last

Grandparent At Last

My granddaughters,
Aira'lee Nadean Jones,
Hope Faith Darnell 
Adelina Gracie Darnell
R.I.P. "Gracie"

Grandparents old of grandparents new, 
the unique joy that you are bringing proper.

Fairy tale's told in the rosy past, 
my first granddaughters are here at last. 

Fishing trips and ice cream cones, 
lullaby songs until we doze. 

Stories told upon cozy laps, 
sunny walks on shaded paths. 

Butterfly kisses and big bear hugs, 
truly grandparents is another word for love.

Songs of a Setting Sun

dusk’s curtain ends
a bird’s melody
what of your legacy

tick tock amends
near the sum of days
are you still in old ways

for what transcends
your last setting sun
have you left it undone

A life negative—
No person’s immune from this.
Fight back hard always . . . 
	 No fear—be courageous now . . . 
And never ever give up!

Meaning of Life

Life is less about having or being,
And more about becoming.
Likewise, it is less about knowing
And more about learning…
At least until you’re dead.

The difference between who you are today
And who you were yesterday
Are the friends you’ve made
And the books you’ve read…
This is the true way to ‘get ahead’.

If there exists a post-mortal afterlife,
I hope you’ll share it with a husband or wife.
So if you hope you’ll be with him or her,
Start now and treat that person better—
Why wait until you’re dead?!

Lifes Journey

Life’s Journey

An adventure begins – a seed plummeted into a liquid pool.
A ripple arises – waves increase, they continue to expand.
They gain girth – they run across the crystalline surface of time.
They absorb much – their journey begins to wane.
They touch the shore – dissipate and are no more.

Life’s Journey

Willow In The Mist

A Winter's Dawn
Along the way
To make of hills
Whose shadows fall
Amidst the mist,
and arbor limbs,
In valley's Low

Where there
In such a light
A willow grows
And as if an empty room
Had found music
It returned a new light

Endearing cords played out 
By nature's hand
Interlacing the unexpected
To the unseen beauty of life

It was as it had always been
Through days that grew me
And now no leaves to it in spring
It bows as age bares down

But has left its music in me

A requiem of birth
In this early light

How the course of nature gives
Along the way
Gentle, unexpected gifts

A willow in the mist-

Still Standing

Where were you when my world fell apart?
The Sun darkened and the Moon just fled.
All had been done and all had been said.
And ripped to shreds was my beating heart.

Even the Seas began to part.
And the Mountain tops spread.
I lay there completely dead.
Even the Stars I could not chart.

If only you knew,
If only you were there,
If only you had a clue!
If only life had been fair!

I’d turn the clocks back,
Still standing dead in my track!

Change for the Better

I'll get better, one day.
I know I will.
I just have to keep going this way,
and try not to fall down this hill.

Sure, I'll fall out sometimes,
but if I don't, how will I learn?
These are the times-
it's strength, I'll earn.

It takes time to get better,
it takes time to be happy,
but I know if I do this with her,
I'll no longer feel crappy.

This is the time to change,
the time to smile,
time to leave this range,
and run the mile.

Control, Attack, Restore

cell splitting
cusp of freedom on the edge
splashing joy

damage spreads
cells lament tormenting truth
dying still

even so
new creations work harder

disease calls
stubborn from birth to its sleep
rattles heart 

heart reacts
brave on the sun's horizon
hope instills 

cells remain
raped inside you by forced smile
they know it

The Black Abyss

Sinking in deeper,
No way to escape,
The dark and scary Reaper,
Fore told in the Book of Life.

Is this my end?
Will I ever see the light of day again?
No. My wounds, I must mend.
I must find my strength.

Stand my ground,
Face my fears.
Only then will my voice be found
I must survive.

Break the suffocating chains,
Run from the darkness.
Power will fill my veins.
I will Fight!

Fight the painful names,
The horrid memories,
The demented games 
And escape My Black Abyss.

We Seek

Deeper than Deep
Deeper than the Oceans can keep
Deep down below
Beneath the layers we keep 
The sorrows that we weep
Tears fill the oceans we see
May they rise up and be our relief 
To the sky we look up and we reach
At the Horizon we gather we meet
In a Streamline Deep down Deep 

^^^^^We Seek^^^^^^

when you dream like a child
and you dream as a girl
when moments do arrive 
you've been dreaming all along
your friends area all around you
you think they'll help you when you're down
but friendships just betrayal
cause you've been dreaming all along

saying days are just new
getting old but you never knew 
and when moment comes for death
you feel
you've been dreaming all along
when you love a girl so much 
and she turns and smiles one day
you say
i wish 
i hadn't been dreaming all along

Getting Involved

Today I heard the words,
“I’m not getting involved”.
Would they have said it
To somebody they had loved?

Maybe they would go that far
To show that they don’t care
Since they’re always first to protect themselves
By claiming it’s just and fair.

I would like to say to them,
“One day you may need a protector too
Whether it’s a friend or not
To come and stand by you,

And if you’re not so lucky
And you fail to defend you
Maybe it’ll be your turn, my friend,
When they come to get you”.

breathe, suffocate

velvet tears slip down my cheek.

a gentle cry.

and the wet drops seep in the corners of my mouth


my lungs are full of my own salty, crystalline tears,

bringing buoyancy to boats that sail inside my veins.

as a rule, I try not to cry.

if a single tear is shed, who is to say that another will not follow?

compelling the rest to join

until I’ve immersed myself in the sea I’ve incepted,

and soon

all I see are the opalescent peaks of water colliding with my skin.

Then the World Died

                                       for Jessica

Orchards recurring: Two twenty year olds 
on dissimilar paths undaunted by love’s 

tapestry approaching exclamatory 
yields of apricot musk and peach marmalade 

their unified voice.  It was you.  Tonight you’ll take
me in Albuquerque sex 10,000 miles away.

I’m walking home from Dane Smith Hall thinking of
Houston - how it’s become a common noun I’ve told

you about while outside the fraternity house
and it’s increasingly proper status

watching us smoke cigarettes.  Our unspoken
thoughts vanish.  Grey.  White.  Blue.  Oncology.

little pale lies

sometimes, i get a wave of sadness over me.

i love you, and i want to be with you,


you deserve someone

a little less neurotic


a little more normal.

someone who is honest when she whispers, “I’m so happy”

under the covers.

you make me happy.

but you shouldn’t have to change me like that.
