Today is the day!

Blustery and beautiful

Everything in bloom

There’s no need to fret

With all the sun and the wet

April, then sweet May

Spring is in the air

On National Haiku Day

Inhale then smile

Fret

Frantic Hope

reflection-2922045_960_720.jpg

I got a message the other day

It plainly said they took you away

You told me you were innocent

This was a crime you did not commit

I had frantic hope that this was true

But then I learned the painful truth

There’s so much I wish I could change

Things that I would rearrange

But all we have is the right now

And we’ll make it through this somehow

Uncompromising

squirrel-2116751_960_720

Remain ever fearless

Uncompromising in your quest

For absolution

For salvation

Despite devotion and support from others

Understand that only you can count on you

You are your foundation

You are your blanket

You just are

And you are stunning.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Happy International Women’s Day! Stay true to you and always caress your soul.

Branch Out

tree-3199003_960_720

Branch out into the dark

Don’t forget your bleeding heart

Blanket the past with deception

Beat back truths with despondent dejection

All that time you wasted then

Plastered inside your plastic grin

Today is tomorrow’s yesterday

What then will you beg to say?

If only, if when, if you, if why

How can you care when you didn’t try

Step back into your simple darkness

You’re gonna feel it regardless

Starting Over

travel-1756150_960_720.jpg

Shuck that fear from your bones

So what if you’re all alone

Adjust your sails and press the hell on

Time to sing your own damn song

You deserve the best in life

Even when nothing seems stable or right

Take it by the day, by minute, or each second

Here, it’s your fate that beckons

All that pain you trudged through then

Now consoles you; your best friend

And that’s okay because you win

Each day when you begin again

Permit Me

live-461731_960_720

The devil paid me a visit

Whispered I was beautiful 

Told me I was the one

Then he opened my heart

Swallowed my soul

He spit out my bones

That seed of self-doubt

Hangs on like a long, final note

That rancid shadow of misery

Permit me to tell you

That I’ve had enough

Permit me to introduce myself

I am raging glory

And I own this moment

Silhouette of Your Soul

nature-3108052_960_720

I laughed at the moon yesterday as it hid behind a cloud

And I stood on our mountain; broken by the wind

The silhouette of your soul

Slipped into my dreams

As I pondered painfully

What’s next

It was so much like you

Yet, it was nothing at all

The crow of my dimension

Led to my descent

Down that long lonely path

I searched for redemption

But all I found

Was a silhouette of your soul

~~~
