    Threads of ice sewn to the fringes of leaves petrified. A fire once blossomed there, only to fall in orderly disarray. Fluttering down, seamlessly woven into the wind. leaving the stain of red lipstick kisses spoiling the ground. ...

    Have you breathed a blue orchid as the world is born again? As the young sun sweeps away the dust of dreams and darkness. Sculpted from the shared clay of time and chance and sunrises. Finely chiseled to be precisely as the inexplicable intended. Vulnerable, fragile, a phenomenon o...

    The sinking of the sun upon an open sea, slow and sweet like a droplet of honey, rouses the depths. As it slips past sight and into the next life I watch, gaze unbroken. For an instant, that is all there is. Radiance lingers in stained pupils standing still in awe. Into the water bra...

    Never had it occurred to me before I saw it, but there it was. Brilliant, extraordinary, exquisite, and hiding behind the veil of my own eyes. So I took a minute and then another to discover what it meant. Though, I understood only what it lent; purpose obscured to my gaze. After m...

    Is there anything in this life more beautiful than wild geese flying? Casual heaving of wings through empty air, —numerous and precise— floating over or landing upon open fields, composed lakes. Miraculous. Natural. Flawless. Their purpose beyond me or my ego. A purpose so ingra...

    Some people are meant to sit beneath oak trees. Some are meant to sing opera on stage to appease the masses themselves with applause. Some whistle wistful tunes slowly. Some are meant to sew skin back together or look for cures to stop what can only be delayed. Some are meant to...

    I saw a sparrow flutter between stark and twisted limbs of the oak I so admire resonating silent hymns. I listen to the silence; lean weary back to rigid bark. I sense its mighty presence and all the while I wonder if my absence has been noticed. Meanwhile snow begins to fall to add ...

    Hello sinner my friend, my brother. Let us confide in each other, let our burdens escape pursed lips, weary shoulders. Embrace me brother and I’ll embrace thee, we’ll discuss our mistakes, or cry until ecstasy. Talk to me brother, over cigarettes and coffee. Tell me you’re sto...

    It was cold, it was chaos, and then it was calm. After the storm there was nothing else to do but pick up the pieces of glass—serene and sharp —lying in snow. What else broke? Why look for ramifications irreparable? Regardless, I dip foot into boot. Time for a wander. It ha...

    The snow fell for what seemed like eternity, and now I am lost in myself— too much time staring out windows, too much time listening to the snow falling. I stepped out and snow fell unrelenting, I did not expect it to stop, hoped it wouldn’t. It felt necessary to leave for a mom...

    I take these hands of mine, a personality of their own, and grasp cold steel. I take these hands of mine, a memory of their own, and play a forgotten sonnet. In the autumn, these hands pull triggers, feel remorse, understanding, satisfaction at watching pheasants fall in golden fie...

    Autumn sighs strip fruitful cherry blossom trees bare. Petals falling, falling onto black water, the flushed petals, delicate petals, rest atop the abyss of heavens reflection. Children watch the winter come, watch the petals fall, see the earth grow pale, see the skeletons of trees...
