One More Love Poem

I am a candle’s slight flame, shivering Against a world that is sometimes lonely Casting dark arms of shadow, quivering In search for meaning. Tendrils creep slowly Against a bath of light.

Sun Sea

Tears fall, unsolicited. Under this Greek sun, I cast my gaze over green hills and metropolis, quietly giving in to the storm that manifests them. I look out and wonder why.

The warm air I sipped tasted delicious. Trees shivered against the soft-spoken wind; I could hear their brushing of leaf to leaf. […]

Happiness in 2020

Sunlight acts as a natural source of fuel for the rested diurnal beasts. As it climbs back into a sky once void of its presence, warm orange hues invigorate the sleepy. Songs of birds add to the furor- force the lying to rise. The first moments of transition between unconscious to lucid is like surfacing […]
