See the transformation,
The change before the change.
The metamorphosis which will be,
When it’s the true you, you embrace.

Her ethereal existence,
Whisper of your tomorrow upon today.
Awaiting the steps of your journey,
Starting with one, your courage displayed.

You’ve been afraid to discover,
What’s destined to be yours.
Truths hidden by layers of facades,
Authenticity masked, hope obscured.

But I see her. Wings unveiled.
Through the hardships and mistakes.
To the light that already is,
And a dawn that waits to break…

Wishing her beauty in self discovery upon her journey.

The Tulip Skeleton…

The Tulip Skeleton,

Ballerina in illusory pause.

Dancing upon desert terrain,

To nature’s endless applause…

A Halloween Poem…

There is an evil,
Like a dark pungent mist,
Consuming the innocent.

Unseen principalities of darkness,
A wicked one who prowls,
Seeking those he may devour.

Feeding upon our fears,
Clawing at our hopes,
Drowning our dreams with tears.

Demons doing the bidding,
Of satan himself,
From deep within the spiritual realm.

Vampires, werewolves and goblins
Differ from this scary.
Know thine enemy…

These Hearts, 6 Varied Interpretations…

Photo taken on one of my desert adventures. It struck such a strong symbolic chord with me. Too perfect to not photograph and write on. Hope you enjoy and thanks for reading.

A heart separated,
Broken preceding.
Breaking still,
But beating.
——-
Independent at last,
Finally free.
With wounds and scars
Easily seen.
——-
Standing alone,
Yet afraid to leave forever.
Close it remains,
Unable to sever.
——-
Pain and loss.
Time and decay.
Eventually,
Ripped the heart away.
——-
Fallen from the largest part,
No longer whole.
Longing to be reunited,
But God’s taken their soul.
——-
An island of love,
Once flourishing.
In an instant shattered,
The heart will keep beating…

Within Her Four Walls…

Drowning within her four walls,
Soaked in self made torment.
Submerged in agony,
Little fight left.

Returning to the dark places,
Her mind draws her to.
Surrendering in error,
To the things she once knew.

Perhaps her hurt will all drift away,
Upon gentle waves of continuity.
Perhaps her eyes will open,
And this will have been, but a dream.

Or maybe she’ll drown,
Within her four walls.
Eyes closed forever,
In her slow, steady fall…

True Story: In The Hampton- without the S…

At the Hampton,
Note, no S at the end.
An elderly couple sat,
Self-made waffles and conversation.

The man expressed discomfort,
Seated below a vent and cold.
His wife’s sympathetic ears heard,
And her quick response was pure gold.

She suggested her long, feminine scarf to tie about his neck.
“It’ll take the chill away, you better believe.”
He paused for only a second,
Before he gladly agreed.

Many other guests
In the Hampton without the S,
Were busily bustling.
And he, the chilled man sat warmly dressed,
In his wife’s long, feminine, scarf,
His wife fashionably tied.
Eating with plastic fork and knife,
No concern over onlooking eyes.
A beautiful freedom, laying pride aside!

A Delicate Rustle…

Wind’s loving caress.
Aspen gold sifts breeze to song,
Whispered lullaby…
