The Mindful Eye

Uncategorized

I saw the golden light

creep along the leaves

and I cried because it was so much bigger than beautiful

so much more than the prison of a word

~

And I cried for those who can not see it

for those who will never know

the way the light dances in different directions

a symphony that will never be seen again

~

how sad for them to have missed this

how wonderful for me to have seen

Curtain Call

Uncategorized

The words you say, you try to live

but the mask you wear becomes a play

a matinee that nobody came to watch

~

Past performances dance behind your eyes

But do not let the ballerina’s linger on your pupils

prancing around to yesterday’s song

The dance of these days, long have gone

~

The curtain called twenty years ago

and still you await the crowd

Your’e better than waiting

for a red rose at your feet

~

You gave birth to your rose

not so very long ago

Treasure her my sister

 she will be a garden for you
