Chasing Rainbows

the moon behind my back

with shadows stretching out before,

distorting, lengthening, changing

the way that lies ahead



standing in the gray

hoping to arrive

as I keep chasing rainbows

to dry my tears

Thought for the day …

be that island of serenity in the raging storms
and waves of life's tumultuous ocean

No Limits

rose petals

pressed between blank pages

bleeding out,

total commitment

to the cost

of pressing on

Don’t Stop

 keep moving

every minute of every day

pushing onward

refrain from looking back

evading that twisted claw of grief

as it tries to shred the memories

of yesterday

Home

opening the door

stepping over the threshold

asking not much

neither a kiss or an embrace

just to lie down for awhile

not to be alone

just to be at home

Nevermore

lift me up

nevermore

head on my pillow

nevermore

empty sky

for evermore

A Conundrum

memories

……

to beautiful to forget

too painful to remember

what to do?

……

either way you’re fucked

Untitled – Kind of …

some kind of pain

some kind of joy

some kind of beauty

some kind of despair

some kind of life

……..

what’s it all about?

The Omega Man

Knock, knock

who is it ….

come in....

wait, what!

Oh FU.......

#micropoetry No. 10

 Continuing the challenge to keep writing poems of 144 characters or less. Here are a few more #micropoems. Poetry for twitter

1.

fact becomes fiction

reality becomes life

alternate is the new the norm

drink and feast

for tomorrow you die




2.

travelling into my space

the road less travelled

 dipping in and out

just visiting

a scary process

discovering what lies beneath

at my place


3.

poets, dreamers & writers

who do you talk to

and where do you go?

to those who live in

strange places

dead spaces

and

dream places?
