Still Life Stories

NinaandMillieonRockWallatSunsetOct2013Counting clouds in the sky

Chasing rainbows in your mind

We should spend our days doing both

Or should we lend the way you see

What’s fractured and frayed

To others who are cracked and dismayed

Could you change it all or

At least control the process

Frequently behind it all

Follow the yellow brick road

Yet you will not find the wizard

However you may see the eye

That stares jealous with envy

Into your soul magic will creep

Sometimes an old lady will weep

If she is left alone with her thoughts

So tell her stories of days gone by

And give her things that can’t be bought

Soon you will share in the glory 

Of spending your days star gazing

Should you choose the still life

Smile of the Dawn

Shifting shafts of light
Swallow the morning yawn
Islands of memories
Swim out to meet the dawn
Dregs of dreams smirk
As you try to recall where you went
And who you saw
In dark passages
Slippery bodies contort
Amidst the crimson velvet
Of a sacred and private nature
You smell the light of day
Drifting through the sultry stillness
Let the day take you where it may
It’s funny what life gives you
When you get in the flow
The black hand of fate
Or a letter in the mail
Entices you onto the scene
Step out of the shadows
Into a blaze of glory
And I will show you what I mean

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
