"The Silent Horse"

I hear the sound
Of the Merry Go Round
Off in the distance
In the silence of the cool night air
Long ago when the music would flow
In the midst of the rag bag fair
An owl might hoot
An elephant might roar
The chug of the train that waits
It carries with it the many hearts
Of those who sleep upon crates
Stinging fingers that cannot penetrate
What is lifted as a great weight
I only listen to the merry go round music
For I know not of my own fate

"Little Mommy"

"Little Mommy"

In contemplation I take notice
Of how the dew gives way
To the rising sun
Except in places
It lasts awhile longer
Before it's finally done
But then there are flowers
That dance because of winds
Their swaying petals
Although at times motionless
As in such that which rescinds
Great spans of time
Bonds which still hold true
Another day-another sun
Another morning dew
Whether under moon and stars
Or muddy colored clouds
The sky will always look upon us
In care of gentle shrouds
Yet there is the path of wonderment
That I have traveled greatly
To know their heart
To share their mind
They are so,somewhat stately
Verily even death
As I know it
Shall not break the connection
Far beyond what is on earth
Beyond the last formal breath
Beyond the final Resurrection;

"In the Moment"

Confrontation as clouds rattle
Abandonment on the road
Wandering through life
Where I had been
In and out of strife
The puzzle now completed
Yet the questions still arise
On the road
Under the clouds
A settling voice
Which is much more wise
No words have yet been spoken
For which there are no words
I find little comfort
Except to watch the flight of birds
Which carry me with them
Beyond the clouds
No more further weeping
By those who walk with shrouds
