Cause and Effect

It began with a smile as she walked by…
he couldn’t help it as she caught his eye,
as she fumbled with her things he saw
an opportunity to be a chivalrous guy;
she didn’t refuse and as they touched hands
the love chemicals stirred with gentle sighs.

It was unintended and of course they didn’t know
that with this one kind act their love would grow
deeper than any one of them could ever dream,
slowly but undeniably real; both of them could tell.
Their word actions and actions clearly told them so;
so sure they showed the whole world with matrimony.

Swirling inside a feeling unexplained,
primordial in a blink of an eye, it came.
The ingredients of a human existence
coming together from two to create one;
hair color, height, gender, personality,
the genetic concoction of life has begun.

Dividing, expanding, starting from a cell
to continue inside though no one could tell
consummated with love this husband and wife
knew that in time they would have a new life
as they would give their all to love and protect
brought on by the simple act of cause and effect.

Smaller Sound




Spinning
from twelve to four
once a stylus now a light
I miss the mystique, I miss my
records

Empty Houses




Seashells
Hidden beauties
Tickle our feet below
Become mementos to take home

No Light at the End of the Tunnel - My Nightmare

My head is pounding as I try to arise
but I fall back into the damp environment;
trying to gather my senses and focus my eyes
I can hear footsteps and feel an evil presence.

Chills run through my body as I can’t see a thing;
I fumble in the dark trying to find any kind of weapon
grabbing something substantial I steady my aim
and hope that this cave doesn’t become my coffin.

All the while backing up I’ve put myself in a corner
the outcome of my finality seems to be imminent;
my heart is pounding so hard from the unknown horror;
in its anger it lashes out at me with ferocious intent.

I’m sent spinning downward by its mighty blows
all of a sudden I’m greeted by a deafening roar,
wakened out of sleep I about jumped out of my clothes
because it’s my mother yelling at me to do my chores.

No Light at the End of the Tunnel

In a maze of confusion here alone I sit;
the path of my future remains unclear
a decision I need to make but I can’t commit;
my future is not as bright as it may appear.

I fumble to try and make sense of it all
it’s like I’m reliving my tender years;
happening at the worst moments I recall
as I retreated into isolation and tears.

Though all grown up I’m still insecure,
I make the connection to when mother passed;
the pain and loss of her took years to endure
and it still comes up but thankfully it doesn’t last.

As I’ve grown old and wiser I finally realize
memories and relationships is what really matter;
broken marriages my happiness never materialized
and every choice I made seem to end up in disaster.

As I reflect some things to me are still so profound
while other things were so simple and yet so subtle;
Despite changes in my life I’ve yet to make ground
so I’ll never see the light at the end of the tunnel.

It's Barely Tuesday!?

Before the dawn
I stretch and yawn;
alarm rings, I hit the snooze.

Stumble out of bed,
shake off the cobwebs;
time to pay my dues.

Weekly recurring ritual,
far from habitual
it's just what I do.

By the week's end,
can't wait for the weekend
when my work is through.

But it ends all too fast; 
why can't weekends last
as long as the weeks do?

The Entertainer




The Entertainer


I can’t feel a thing like I’m lost in time;
a hushed silence mightily abounds,
like a French street performing mime
it grabbed my attention without a sound.

Soft, floating like a whisper it came
as if in a dream, floating in the air
billions alike but none were the same;
mesmerized by their beauty I just stared.

Dancing at my feet I can’t avoid them,
they’re all around with every step I take;
reflecting in the light like diamond gems
the rainbow of winter is the snowflake.

A white movie screen is the picture I see
perfect and flawless the design of every one
a staying power on the cold ground you’ll agree
until it melts under the intense spotlight called the sun.
