Illumination

Edges found at trails end
as journeys give time
the mind gathers thoughts
alphabetized in the shelves of the mind
endless untold stories
on the cusp of the tongue.
Beneath the endless skies
the memory wanders untethered
slipping in and out of focus
beneath the blazing heat that moves
a wavy-gravy hodge podge of moments
dripping like rain that gathers its crowd
in the billowing clouds it spills unheard.
Unprepared, the minions move
in the frenzied way of a child at play,
as the beauty of a world above changes
the illumination of a thought rises up
spilling in rainbows in the darkness
and night can only hide so much
for the stars that glitter
across a velvet field
are diamonds of a lost world grasping
at the shiny things just out of reach,
a thought slips through
born of fire and ice,
weak yet growing strong
as time goes by.
There can be no excuse
just a slipping away unseen,
time an element of no meaning
just a name given,
the essence of a soul drifts
neither here nor there,
just being,
a seed on the wind.

  1. So glad I drifted into your world today. I’ve been thinking about you a lot….with tons of gratitude and love. I can’t even imagine living in the Deep Humid anymore. Praying all is well in body and spirit, and happy to see you writing! 🙂

  3. Thank you Michael,
    Slowly working my way back into a groove. The weather has been wreaking havoc with my moods, too dreary to paint, days off rainy and blah, now the humidity….yikes….I’m sure you’re used to it where you are, I think I’d die if there weren’t air conditioning😱but feeling good vibes today, finally. Good to be back💜

  4. Thanks Tre, feeling a bit wavy gravy these days, the humidity and I don’t like each other much, energy sucker for sure….working still, although the crowds have gone from chaos to “where are they” so it drags, starting to feel inspired again, just needed a wee break to readjust the sails😊 and I thank you for your words, they made my day brighter, but you always do that so very well💚love ya, Auntie K💜

    Are just a few of the reasons why I admire your work.
