Shadow flight of paper planes

Easy.  At the beginning, that's what this was.  Words flowed.  Ideas formed, clamoring for voices, pushing, squeezing, sneaking through the crush to stand most forward in the spotlight of my mind.  Fighting not to be forgotten, but instead shouted from this high platform of pixels (which evokes a tower built of legos in my mind,…

Drivel

  Life is a ladder laid on its side weaving and wandering the course we abide   twisting and turning have caution below beware of the others who recklessly go   carried in carts along uncharted path blind to the junctures where they may crash   dodge if they pass you jump, dance, balance, and…

Sliding Backwards

Forgetting is easy.  Fostering a habit is difficult, creating a routine and following in every footprint laid before you by you, treading the same path every day, learning to love it through the agony of repetition.  The path may be the same but the surroundings are different daily, explore.  Do not allow forgetting to be…

A light so bright

A time of joy and joining, of new love and old love and love that persists continually in being new every day, peeling back layers to reveal unexpected delights and unknown imperfections.  Beauty beheld in both, growing admiration.  Acquiring a partner worthy  of the endless journey into forever.  

Hear me

Actors may change their voice to play a role.  A parent reading a story to their child may adopt many voices, personifying the players in the tale.  Voice actors exist, whose profession it is to become characters based solely on the sound they choose and the inflection they use.  Daily we may find our voice…

Heroes.  In reality, those who conquer adversity, often quietly, who may not be known or remembered, whose deeds may not measure up on a grand scale.  Perhaps a hero only to one, or a few.  So entrenched are we in the idea of a hero as an icon, as superhuman, that we forget the everyday…

What are you looking at

The saying goes that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  Looking for it there shall do you no favors.  Eyes can no longer contain beauty when you start to take them apart, after all.  Dissecting orbs in search of the beauty they may have seen in you, questing after self worth placed in…

Mindscape

Within dreams everything is possible, there is no requirement for reason or sanity, everything simply is or is not.  Logic does not dictate a sequence of events.  Implausible, impractical, impossible; these have no meaning in a dream.  Fly to the top of a tower with no wings, walk the bottom of the ocean and do not…

Impermanence

Temporary tattoo, as on a child, pretending at permanence. Stick on and wipe off, back to normal in moments. No regrets, no second guessing. Nothing left of your tiny, mass-produced rebellion.

Lost and found

Allowing thoughts to wander, blinded to reality, creating complex plans that will never bear fruit. Half will become shadows, burnt outlines of something amorphous that cannot be identified but will tingle, nagging to be known, driving ever closer to the precipice of forgotten insanity.  Ideas dumped into the void.  Will there be demons or angels…
