Happenstance dictates encounters of unique strands Unique to the era we as youth must blossom in Unprecedented and uncharted wholly with us as guinea pigs We have been forced into the role of spectator to every inch of the unfolding Earth Hyper aware to the goings on from the broadest sense to the most intimate […]

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. I am a creature interested in rhymes and reasons. This is a world that has neither. My cheeks burn, the tears settle on my […]

Self Talk

How strange, the mind. How it parses life out between chapters in two separate timelines. The living stories and the ones that occur in the grips of sleep. So odd!

Stagnation is nightmare fuel. Anything that settles into idleness breeds poisonous offspring. Still water makes parasites like mosquitoes that spread disease, algae that chokes the life below that stagnant surface. Losing momentum is threatening in that it can bring about imprisonment wherever the feet land last. To become stuck means to become a breeding ground […]

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 […]
