    Respond with poetry

    Responding in kind to the trials of life only gives those trials more power. Instead, be the eternal romantic. Look for the starry sky in the darkness, or the glow of the sunshine behind those grey clouds. Romance is not about sharing a moment with another. Romance is about embracing a moment for yourself despite […]

    Forgotten bones

    Sullen heart Tainted soul Exhausted spirit Far from home A journey long A stranger lone Broken promises Forgotten bones Cryptic poetry from a cryptic soul For each to take What echoes with their own… Photo credit : Adobe Stock #authorsofinstagram #poetry #spilledink

    Restless souls write

    Restless souls write Anxious souls read Complacent souls pay no heed And then there’s me. Fitting uncomfortably in each space, while not fitting in at all. There’s a blessing in being anomalous.

  • Peace

    Belying my exterior, That serene scene saunters into view of my mind’s eye. Driving to a destination that isn’t, Until my fuel is spent, Effortlessly emerge from the vehicle, And continue on foot, Until I am spent. Finally melding into the sand, Without a trace, I become one with time. Passing you by, Unnoticed. Finally […]
