Beyond This Moment

Reflecting the silence of the sun

Inside the heart of a blue moon

Resides another world

That lingers just behind your eyes

Pry them open at first light

You will find the smile of the dawn

It’s always there if you choose to look

Step inside, right this way

I have something to show you

Like the first frost on a broken window

Or a forgotten friend you used to know

Give them a call you will not regret

Disregard what might have been said

Over a long time ago

It makes no difference now

Ditch the past like a bad habit

You have no use for it now

Focus on the new dawn rising

It provides a harvest of treasures

Speak up when I call your name

I hear you forever

Wherever I go, your still the sameImage

Rise

Reveal what you feel

Lift the veil of valor

Liberate all of your tomorrows

To conquer the days gone by

Stare not at the lost horizon

Gaze upon the glory within

Once you remember 

How you used to be

It will all come back to you

A torrent of emotions

Furiously flowing they thaw

Melting memories that are useless

It’s funny which ones you

Always seem to recall

Secretly you spy upon the sky

Wishing it would tell you

What it already knows

Somehow it detects deception

That stands in the doorway

You hope to walk throughImagepoetry blogs,poetry,poem blogs,poems,writing blogs,writing,photography blogs,photography,painting blogs,paintings,artist blogs,artists,waterfalls, water,rise,feelings,breitling

Gone Before

Remembering you and what you meant to me

A world lost a hero and so did I

Up close and personal

Yet distant and unknown

Now that your gone

I have created a new persona for you

Based on how I thought you would be

Or what I thought you meant to me

Pictures remain on the window sill

Yet time never stands still

Every now and then

Some tears will spill

And I recall what you left

Out here in the remains of the world

I watch it go by 

And wonder what you would think of it all and

How you used to be

Would you fit in, would you even care?

Could you let us in, could we dare?

Always a rebel, outspoken and true

We all have someone close who left

The game before they should have

They still reside deep inside

To visit your spirit when you need a lift

Remembering them is a timeless giftImage

Daring Steps

Words unspoken often

Lead you to temptation

A position poised

To determine your fate

Upon the line which you walk

A razor’s edge

Two steps forward

One step off

Defend your status

Amongst the honored elite

Vested with privilege and scourge

High above you hear the call

A voice of the past

Or is it the wind

Daring you to fly

Into uncharted territory

Across the desert of your mind

A lonely terrain

Damaged by the demons

Of the modern day

For which you gamble

All that you have

And all that you areImage

 

Blind Faith

Rummaging through a book of days

You’ll be surprised

At what you find

Secrets in peoples lives

Feelings they did

Or did not have

Strokes of genius

Or blind faith in the way

Things were

Or were supposed to be

Yet they did not turn out

How you hoped they would

On the turning away

You rotate through the stages

Of your Life and try to stop

On phases you liked

And places you loved

But the big wheels keep on turning

Time waits for no one

Move quickly through the marshes

Don’t stop to stare

Into the eyes of a stranger

Meet me at dawn

Out on the cliffs

Of the land of no tomorrowImage

Starting Over

In the morning you awake

To find out what you thought was real

Is gone, beginnings have begun

As the end of an era brilliantly crashed

Repeatedly the cycle churns

Over and over, again and again

Crazy circles you chase

Caught in the frenetic rat race

To continue this pace

They will steal your face

Surrender to the sabbath

That comes in the night

Segue silently into the void

Between the small hours

Of the coming dawn

A new start to etch into the world

You’ve chosen the path

A select few only do

So walk tall and beware a holy outlaw

Is on the loose

Who will judge your ways

And penalize your style

Spit in his face

And depart with a smile

There’s no one like you

Everywhere you go

People know your name

They’ve already determined

Your claim to fame

Move forward, don’t look back

Until you reach the clue

There you will be crowned the new kingImage

 

Cautious Rejuvenation

A receding raindrop

Reveals a regal rejuvenation

Exercise caution as the wild wind blows

A flickering street lamp up ahead

Beckons you to safety on this gloomy night

Quicken your pace

Come in out of the darkness

Candle light spills onto your face

A damp posture is unveiled

Pull up a chair and tell me

Of your journey through many lands

The fire crackles and spits

Embers of tomorrow lighten your mood

As you settle in for the night

Your story unfolds of how you were taken

Yet there is no mention of what

You had already given

Wind whistles against the wooden cottage

Windows rattle from the gathering storm

You sip your whiskey and light a smoke

Your feet in front of the fire are finally warm

Fret not I’ve already forgotten

Of which you spokeImage

Sunshine and Shadows

A splash of sunshine

Singes the shadows

Of the sidewalks

Inside your head

A marble rolls recklessly

Through the maze of your mind

Exasperated echoes

Fill the haunted chambers

That once rang true

With the voice of reason

All that remains is

The sound of silence

Should you fill it or

Let it be

Does the first one to speak

Really lose

Or does that mean

You really care

We were just a zig zag away

Touching lives of many

Who know the feeling

When everything around you

Flew out the windowImage

Of Myths and Mountains

Who knows where you’ll be

When the sun rises tomorrow

You could be here, you might be there

Where you go when your gone

Nobody knows

Is it a place nearby

Or far, far away

In the landscape of your mind

Forgotten by now

Remembered a little later

You thought you could escape

Undetected you skulk through the mist

Of the valley from whence you came

The mountains obscure your past

The sky fades to darkness

Pure light rarely lasts

Imagine emerald isles in the sky

A country in your eyes

Separates the idea of the myths

That still linger and ones that have yet

To be forged beneath the hillside

Of your country manor

A new dawn rises

Swelling smiles suppress the silence Image

 

Drifting Back

Inside the evening

Are the embers of genesis

Whisper relentlessly to stoke

The fires within your seed

Allow the water to seep

Deeper and deeper into the earth

Pour out the poison

Found inside the hollows

Wander through the mountains

Pass beneath soaring trees

Take shelter from the elements

Beside the sacred lake

That echoes still the voices of the past

From the great beyond they talk

Through the valleys of time they walk

Protect them from the evil that men do

Stagnant and polluted is the government path

Purge the ranks, impeach the politicians

Bring back the native spirit

Walk tall with Mother Nature

Or she will continue her wrathImage
