the mind has rain too
but I like the sunshine more
accept the weather

the early morning
light as the summer solstice
approaches - gold and
blue after the rain - after
the storm - after the dawn breaks

the darkness within
sometimes leaks out in my dreams -
violent nightmares

sometimes my yearning
for serenity - holds me -
and I swim in dreams

I miss her, that's all.
It seems so silly. My heart
aches. Just walk away.

my driftwood heart lies
washed up on the beach, a knarled
sun bleached thing - waiting

embroider your mind,
embellish it, garnish it,
with ideas and spice
embroider your mind
with a rainbow of love,
compassion and hope
embroider your mind;
stitch by careful stitch, with love,
compassion and hope
embroider your mind
with a rainbow and patch it
like a quilt with love
to want and desire
a person that in many
ways you do not like
and not to desire someone
that you know is good and kind

reason v desire
a horrible tangled web
yet I still want her

the settling mud
of my churning thoughts - I wait -
the clearing water
and the beginning of peace
descends upon my wild mind
little by little
chip away at the mountain
live in each moment

perfectionism -
little by little you learn
it is stifling

is not your friend - it weighs down
thoughts and happiness

Remember George Floyd.
They took his breath, then his life.
Take a knee and remember.

my life was filled with
fear, uncertainty and doubt
and I nearly drowned
I am learning to float, breathe,
swim amidst the shifting tides
