A slow evening. Watching the planes overhead, Break the deep purple, Break the zen. I became enthralled, By the things she said, “Hello, How are you?” So enraptured. A soul, so beautiful, Her heart, so gifted, My heart was, unknowingly, Captured. Even if it’s only a romance, Watching her smile, That’s all in my head. […]

They said, “The peace couldn’t last for too long.”  You could hear the acrid breeze moving through the leaves.  You could see the diseased air stripping the trees.

The days grow shorter, the heat turned lukewarm and the outcome’s been chosen. The embers glow passionately, more seldom, only on the occasion an errant breeze is spoken.

On October the fifth, I climbed into my mind […]

A beautiful, blue sky day. A few clouds smiled, Nodding as they floated away. The waves fell onto the shore. Glissing notes in harmony, Hooked on the feeling, wanting more.

It was a Summer breeze, on a Saturday eve, from some time ago freed, that carried on its winds, a thought conceived. I placed my cup on the ground, leaned my head back to the sound, so profound in it’s hypnosis reclaiming a memory recently found. I reminisced, on this, on the only life I’ve […]

I, declare that all people are created equal, Don’t pass on this, just pass along this jewel, Eyes on the prize, eyes on the sparrow, American Patriot 2.0, the sequel.
