Incarnates

May 12, 2017

Time is in the driver seat

Never pulling over to rest.

Fear is singing comforting songs from childhood

About how everything will be alright.

Apathy is carving up Ambition’s body

Throwing the pieces out the window.

Despair follows in the distance

Sweeping Ambition’s remains off the Road.

Letting Go….

January 15, 2014

Ω

The East Rim

Is hung with chains

The West Rim

Is paved with roads

The Canyon between

Has depth beyond Sunlight

To a lake

That burns

For in the East

I can’t

Yet in the West

I won’t

I’m Tired

Θ

The Finger

So often used in accusation

Continually sharpened

To needle out the details

Now like a pencil in June

Too short and too dull

With the paint chewed off

Unable to make a point

Not wanting to make a point

Finished making points

Any intellectual profit

In the trash

With the shavings

How many people have i done things for

How many times have i done nothing

Mute Thoughts

July 26, 2012

Ξ

Man could wrap his arms around creation

If he bothered to maintain a line

Back to the beginning

Though, in fact,

Our arms are shorter

Than our legs

Since most can’t remember

The ground they touched today

If anyone touched ground at all

Necessity

May 30, 2012

Θ

There must be Gods

For in a world of

Can Nots

There must be

An untouchable

Is

That remains exalted

Beyond the reach of

Condemnation

Able to absolve

Diminished spirits from

Doubt

Imbuing upon those

That persevere

Grace

..

Or

..

I Didn’t throttle

My boss

Today

Does that mean

I can get a

Cookie

A

Single

Rust colored pine needle

Balancing upright

Upon the marbled slate-blue iced over lake

Framed at the edges in deep glittering snow

Binding Spruce into great flowing columns

Anchoring an embracing domed azure sky

Crested by the blinding-white golden Sun

WhoDunIt

February 3, 2012

Mystery romances the lost

Ginning what truth remains

of a seed

long after it germinates

.

Celebrating each revealed truth

As gospel

fresh from the makers lips

.

Until as fire purifies ash

is the acorn found

in the flames of reason

Nail Cemetery

February 3, 2012

Θ

With each strike of the hammer

The nail plunges deeper into the wood

Each hit concealing more and more

Leaving less and less to see

Until eventually the nail is gone

Pushed entirely beneath the surface

Never to be seen again

No mark or blemish

Where once stood iron

The hallmark of a skilled craftsman

Hemorrhaging Faith

Staining the shadows binding

Nadir

January 11, 2012

Θ

A thousand years

interned in a dungeon

Through time

i have finally stacked up enough stones

to reach the barred window

Climbing up the pile

i look out

past the bars

upon the outside

for the first time

and have no idea

what i’m looking at

Chasing the Equatorial Horizon

January 9, 2012

Ω

Walking in a circle

revisiting each step

again and again

Ad infinitum

.

Ending and beginning

in the Chasm

Highpoint of memory

bottomless in despair

.

If if virtue is gold

my soul is poor

each revolution

refilling the pit with debt

.

In it collects the runoff

of apprehension and fear

as a cauldron of doubt

and crucible for folly

.

yet at the edge again

by my choice

i bring myself

wan and bridgeless

.

Though after the crossing

as i emerge and walk yet away

am i really leaving

or beginning the trip back

Then Man

Shaved off the edges

Making it square

so it would fit

October’s Fire

October 2, 2011

It begins

the Fall of Night

Darkness embraces life

Saturating the light

Dim violet flames

The Fire Dervish

With Burning Heart

Tends a garden

of Flame
