Sailing Out On The Good Ship

IMG_1280.jpg

Sailing out on the good ship
Prevailing winds ensuring a clear path
Foregoing the unexplained existence
Forging headlong into nature’s wrath
Arctic waters surrounding our view
Diligent sailors crewing this steel boat
Perpetually longing for a illusive home
But buoyed by a dedication keeping us afloat

Here, Let Me Give You A Hand

tying-792104.jpg

Here, let me give you a hand
You don’t need your Ladies in Waiting
I could unstitch your mundane hours
Leaving you breathless & vibrating
We could take a walk – an adventure
If you’re up for some fun & romance
Your entire existence to be altered
If only you were willing to grant me a chance

Hanging With Suspicious Writers

books-927394

Hanging with suspicious writers

An overly socialized troop

Collectively creating

An emotionally battered group

Pondering word placement

& the value of existence

The quiet utility of thought

Inspiration compounding persistence

We Have Too Many Judgements

nature-1790138.jpg

We have too many judgements
& not enough compassion
A separation of Church & soul
Thus leaving hearts a bit ashen
We’re falling apart at the dreams
The frailty of human existence
Foundering upon our heartbreak
The final hope of our resistance

I’m Into Trying New Things

bed-945881.jpg

I’m into trying new things
Alternate positions to give you an extra gasp
Weaving words through this existence
Weakened knees, begging me to unclasp
I’m emboldened by your Earthly vessel
But a beautiful soul, you can’t dispossess
But enough of these intricate notions
I believe it’s time to get you undressed

Too Cautious For That Rabbit Hole

tea-party-1138912.jpg

The slow silent flattery
Worming it’s way into your ear
Unsure of calculated intent
If you should accept it with fear
Or allow it to swell up & be free
Not much left of your personal pride
Life has chipped away at it
Sinking into a cowering stride

Too cautious for that rabbit hole
But you’re better than that
Deep down you truly know

How much effort have you spent
To be contrary & constantly ignore
The world as it whispers lovely words
Snippets of charm floating to the floor
Standing at an arms distance
Not believing yourself to be Alice
Or any of the princesses of yore
Never dreaming of a shining palace

Too cautious for that rabbit hole
But you’re better than that
Deep down you truly know

Never a confidence
Feeling temptations of the weak
They’re just simple words
Hoping to give an outlook a tweak
Not meant to encumber
Or ransack your existence
But you can’t hinder the words
& their slow penetrating insistence

Running Through The Trees

rainforest-717652.jpg

Running through the trees
My soul searching for a respite
Naturally purifying my existence
Exchanging dialogue to acquit
Exhaustion overcoming me
Finding peace through sweat
Closing my thoughts to ugliness
Our beauty perfected within the typeset

Gnomes of Oracle

garden-gnome-379254

Many in the world will deny their existence
You will not find them in books which are historical
But hidden beneath the shrubs and trees
You might find the ‘Gnomes of Oracle’
They are kind little creatures
They go about their business, never doing any harm
Our small friends are rather shy
But that’s part of their charm
A vast system of caves dug deep into the earth
Winding tunnels descend down and begin to twist
In a central chamber beneath all that is known
Only a certain few are allowed, this they insist
Behind all else in the caverns below
The gnomes guard an old wooden box containing a treasure
Diamonds and gold cannot shine as bright as what’s inside
What the box holds is on what your life will be measured
Carved into the side of the box is a label, it simply reads ‘LOVE’
With nothing more valuable, nothing greater can be found
Once you have this, you need nothing else
This treasure is rare, but can be created from everything around
