Endless search

Layer upon layer
water sits restless beyond view
walking
waiting to find
the end of the night,
searching for the peace.
We stack our dreams like stones
rounded and worn
time passes us by regardless
of thought or want or need,
something that always just is
plain and simple
as simple as can be,
yet we fight the flow
treading water and fighting the current
carrying away the things beyond reach,
and we slip beneath now and then
relaxing and tired of the fight,
we get pushed upward and out of the fray
surprised by the path we now find,
cut into new scenes
same old but different somehow,
the new jungles we cut through
deep and thick and murky
as the air hangs as heavy as the heart,
we forge on
knowing the answer is beyond our sight,
we just have to believe
that it will all be okay,
nothing we can change
’cause life will move on
like tomorrow
and the following
and so on….
our endless search will find
what is and will be meant to be.

Seasons dream

Seasons move my mind
Through thought this head
Wrapped round
Energy spent focused
On the brightness
Of this sunny side.
Fall she leaves me damp and cool
Spring she gives new life
Winters ice kills aimlessly
But summer touches gently.
Her sun dappled happiness
Through branches shade
She finds me
Eyes closed moving
Softly in a breeze.
Dreams in darkness turn me
And I twist their stories
Back to good,
Impossible battle
Between dark and light
And I am left victorious
To enter the white room
Somewhere in head
Challenged to stay focused
Drained I succumb to better moments
Breathing softly
Slipping back under
To the season of truth
To the beauty that is found
In light.
