Arrogance

The arrogance of youth
Married the hubris of ego
To begat days of toil
For questionable reward

Fleeting

This life drags on
When it goes by so fast
In its infinite fleeting moments
Stacked like dust
Fallen from stars
That become eternal oceans
Destined to boil away
Sail across the gulf
And land on another rock
For others to swim in

Souls

Far shores whisper to me
On gentle breezes
Carried across the oceans
To be caught by my nose
And played within my head

These yarns of derring-do
Of men driven to madness
In clothing ridiculous
Under baking suns
And lost to the world
As they dig for their own souls
Buried in treasure chests
Hidden by others
When they were but pups
Leave me wondering

If their eternal rest
Rattling in chains like wind chimess
As they sink further back in time
Will wait for future hunters
Of others’ misfortune
Or if they will pick the locks
And take back what is theirs

Bath

In green waters
Hearts beat fast
In languid respite
From time’s gallop

Straining

We carry
The heavy things
Crushing us
On our fragile backs
With strong legs
Straining against
Everything pulling us down

Story Time

Eyes filled with love
Peel words from pages
To spin worlds invisible
Where knights and damsels dance
Frogs pole-boat on lilly pads
And rats roll cats into dough
For bright timeless sleepy eyes
Which blink to today
Weaving worlds from words
Within new minds
Before their eyes close forever
To become an old chapter remembered through tears
In-between future happy fantasies

Shining ☀️

Shining eyes
See heaven
No matter where they look
