Uprooted Oak tree

Broken branches lie, decay

Roots lost to the winds

~ Greed
When Greed the heart does consume

Logic finds no room

Distorted – nay, falsehoods – proclaimed 

From forked tongues without restrain

All Dignity cast aside

Void of substance, alter pride

And family, friends stand in awe

Observing the circus one and all
When Greed the heart does consume

Logic finds no room.

Watershed moment

Before, after, her demise

Happiness, sorrow

Dancing daffodils 

Yellow hues sway in two’s 

Breath of Spring passes

~ Brazen Blades


‘Neath frozen sod

Pokes brazen blades

Refusing to linger with

The earths shades;

Reaching for the sun

Natures ritual of praise.

~ Your Shinning Star


~ Your Shinning Star
I carried a pocket full of dreams

Some slipped through faltered seams

But still I carried on, permanent failure

Was not an option:
We’ve all hit rock bottom

Sinking dreams and all

The challenge is to rise

When weakened by the stall
The stall has a purpose

Shows us who we really are

We either live in reality

Or still, wish upon that falling star…
I’ve never caught a falling star

Have any of you?

Just believe in yourself

That is where your star shines through.

Sliver slanting sleet

Wild whipping winds wafting

Leafless limbs livelihood
