Twirling Her Hair


Twirling her hair
Within her youthful spirit
Painting life with energy
Trying to love anyone who’ll hear it
Sun bleached in her salted bikini
But being pretty derives no wealth
Art is a side effect of feeling
In happiness, you must first love yourself


Sitting In Front Of The Vanity


Sitting in front of the vanity
Deciphering all your beauty marks
You see lines, wrinkles & blemishes
I see my very own Domestic Monarch
You’ll never see what my soul knows
But, I know how lucky I am to have this view
I’ll spend my days discovering new ways to cherish
I’m grateful you allow me to share eternity with you

An Answer Too Perfect To Contemplate


An answer too perfect to contemplate
Reaching in to wipe it from your eyes
An emotional outlier you don’t believe
Unbeknownst to you, it’s the proper size
Holding back, not wanting to combust
An extra breath, expecting a bramble
A grandiose surprise stopping you cold
Perhaps we weren’t prepared for that gamble


Kitty Hawk Nights


Kitty Hawk nights
Looking up at the stars
Lonely moments
Wondering where you are
Keeping to my thoughts
As the moon begins to wane
Silently I stand my watch
Pacific waters are my bane


Female Footprints In The Sand


Female footprints in the sand
What a lovely thought
Surf hasn’t yet washed away
Do you learn all you’re taught
The day’s sun has fallen
Exposing the night’s stars
Sand cold between your toes
Do you know how lucky you are


I’m Predictably Unpredictable


I’m predictably unpredictable
Doing everything you don’t expect
I wasn’t born to follow
On a mission you can’t detect


Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist



“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist


Sending Yourself To Quarantine


Sending yourself to quarantine
Removed from the population
Outfitted in lace under gabardine
Trying to remain free inoculations
Happiness found within parameters
Quite content with life’s overall flow
Beauty seen in different diameters
Perfect love exists & should want to know


Foreign Ports & Delicate Dreams


Foreign ports & delicate dreams
Avoid creatures at the local bar
They’re having a big time now
Won’t find home without your star
Hints & whispers found between
The alleys & curved narrow streets
Answers to your eternal dreams
Never found down where locals meet


We Have A Good Life


We have a good life
Though we need to work hard everyday
No time to allow a moment to slide
Have to mean each & every word we say
