still

waiting.

a cup
that never runneth.

even birdsong
drowns
in its own stagnation.

something,

coming but
never here….

only the
waiting.

waiting for love to finally (re)appear.

waiting for destiny to thrust aside care.

waiting for hope to push back fear.

waiting to age, one more year.

flowing
through rushing currents
of life ecstatic,
still my friend,

i wait for you.

prayer

waiting
for you was never a chore
because you
were always there
next to me.

loving you
burns
like
24 year old scotch
whiskey
slipping under my soul.

life
is filled
with wonder and
peace when
my gaze meets
yours.

you
and
I
shall travel forever

dancing
together on
infinite winds

across the
wings of
memory.

yes,
we will know
eternity.

❤️❤️❤️

Within

i listen
for your wisdom.

i yearn
for your touch.

i close my eyes,
and
almost
feel you
guiding me to safety.

it is so dark,
without you.
the silence
so full.

without,
there is nothing.
but i will find you
within.

and we shall dance again,
as lovers and friends do.
we shall laugh once more
as angels and children do.

i open my eyes
and see through this cloud.

i open my eyes
and see i am here,
with you
in my heart.

i am almost ready to fly again.

Stream

twisting,
and
turning,
and
slipping through
this land
and the next.

what wonders
did you trickle past
before you came
to tickle my toes?

what joy it is
to float with you
and explore these sandy shores.
in this eternal summer
of sunshine and smiles
we are,
love.

but as i climb back on land
you continue on to vistas new.
what will you see?
what will you do?

without me.

will you remember our games?
how we played happily?

will you ever return?

perhaps one day I’ll float along and find you,
but not today.

Twilight

I hear the sun setting.
can you hear it too?

it sounds
like
the beginning
of something new.
it frightens me.
yet, it welcomes you.

I’m not sure if I like it.
No.

I don’t like it.
but,
do you?

in the deep night,
I still
hear that soft
silence
beckoning so sweetly.

the sun rises,
without you.
i heard nothing
crescendo at dawn.

did you?
I’ll never know,
but i do know
that you know
that
I love you.

Old Souls Fly Far

a thirst for adventure
but not the water in your bowl.

a hunger for affection
but not meat and bones.

you have appetites still,
that this world cannot fill.
so prepare to continue on your way.

preparing yourself.

preparing us.

 

why must you go
and leave me?

 

so many journeys we’ve taken
together.
but on this one,
you go
alone.

 

you will live in my heart, and my sweet memories
(of course that’s what they ALL say),

but
I want your stinky fur in my nose.
I want your cold nose pressed to my neck.
I want to see you run
free,
constantly teaching
me how
to be a free
being.

 

But your job is done:

My soul IS free.
My heart is full.
My most precious treasure,
protected, safe, and STRONG.
we are wiser
for you.
for you,
my lovely beast.

 

lost in this world, but
for you.

 

thank you

 

Rules of the Game

there are none.

seriously.

there is only
you
+
love.

so don’t plan…

dont
ever
plan-
She doesnt like that.

you cannot be a Mistress
or a Master
of the Universe. (She is not the obedient type)

take your journey
and
walk your path
but
at some point
(most likely many points)
She will roundhouse kick you in the face
with life; or
She will drop kick you in the back of the head
with Love;

so go ahead and plan, for a giggle.
or,
set sails full
and let Her
take you
to
where you need to be.
