Remnants


Remnants

The pieces
remind us
of what was.

The spaces
highlight what
will never
be again.

This is what
will be now
and always.

Distractions


Distractions

Zeus was envious.
The attention on Helios
made him venomous.

So, he sent out rumbles
with the volume on high.
Had the rain pour down
from the sky.
Added wind gusts
on the sly.

But, he couldn't dampen
the  excitement of the day.
The focus stayed on the sun
and how it would go away.

The people couldn't be swayed.

Churning


Churning

The boats travel
down the river
everyday, an
action so routine
it goes unnoticed.
In their wake,
the water churns.

Petals


Petals

Did you see
which one
opened first?

Are they all
colored exactly
the same?

Aren't some shorter
and some wider?

How many points
does each have
on its end?

Can you guess
which one will be
the last to fall
to earth?

Sundown


Sundown

When sunset comes round,
the natural light turns itself down.
Bids us a colorful goodnight.
Glows like a dying ember
then is extinguished by
the limitations of our vision.

Escape


Escape

Find the stairway
that takes you
away.

The one that
spirals outside your
routine.

Lets you leave
the walls you built
behind.
