Flatop Sky Clouds and Trees

Right Now

Someone died today

Perhaps you knew of them

More than likely not

Under a blue sky you forgot

Time is so fleeting

Respect every meeting

This just might be

The last chance you’ll ever see

Take a moment of silence

Someone brake the ice

No need for violence

Waging peace is my vice

You spend a lifetime

Making up your mind

And deciding what to do

There’s no time to rewind

So step inside

To meet your maker

He’s been waiting

To greet your takerImage 

 

 

Bursting Magnificence

Settle in for the seance

Open up your eyes

Get ready for another world

Back lit by the sky

Remove your expectations

Exceed another dimension

Revel in nightly pursuits

Walk silently through the crowd

Anticipate the applause

Are you a rebel or the cause?

Dismiss dissension

With a cheerful disposition

Ride your own wave length

Determination is withheld

Withdrawn is your style

Walk with me and tell me your story

Somewhere on the wind

Your wave will arrive

Catch it if you can

Burst upon the scene

With magnificence in betweenImage

 

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

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

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

Who, What & Where?

Who do you turn to

When no one else is around

Who will listen

When you think you heard a sound

What time was it

When I last saw you alive

Freezing you were

On that long deep climb

Where did you go

Beneath the voices in your head

How did you know

They were calling you back

When you were already gone

What did you take with you

To remind us that

No one gets out of here alive

Was it something I said

Or something in your head

That made you walk the road alone

When there was a bright light

Just up ahead why did you

Blow out the candle in the window

What were you thinking when I said maybe tomorrow?Image
