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

Internal Echoes

Within the realm
Of staggering possibilities
Lies the answer to all the stories
You’ve ever been told
It all began when somebody said
Lo and behold
I’d like to try again
So off you went to the emerald forest
Laughing all the way
Leaving behind the small town sagas
You carried too far
Now that your able
To sneer at the past
A remedy has surfaced
From the crystal ship
That sank off your shores
Distant and wide screaming within
Tortured beneath a smile so vast
You’ve tied yourself to the mast
To set sail for parts unknown
Festering with guilt
You sail away in your dreams
Looking ahead or under your bed
Ghosts of destiny careen in your head
Echoing down the hall
You have turned a corner
Into the purple sunrise
Of a silent meadow
