Simplicity

Essence of a thought
drifting through in a dream,
words falling down like water
on the edge of a deeper sleep.
Slipping away in the ether
of cloud-like images born
in memory banks now opened
and blooming in the blink of an eye.
We remember the fragments,
the smallest petal of beauty
the shades of moods
in day-to-day dealings,
words of simplicity slip through
and ground the mind in
a quiet peace.
Where is it now,
those things remembered
having rolled off of the tip of the tongue
in the dark hours of calm
I can’t recall the name
of that moment
as I had then,
saddest things of magnificence
once alive
now a ghost of the shadow self.

Drifted dream

We swallowed the moon
in dreams of sickness,
feeling the movement
as it slipped down lower
into the starving pit of emptiness
growing cold in the blue.
Sweat runs like rain on summer days
as the sun brands bodies
with the tattoo of red,
seeking relief we drifted to the edge
and held on tight
to stay above the fray.
Amongst the stars
scattered like sugar drops on black,
sprinkled to and for by the careless hand,
like unexpected words found
cold and sharp, ever bright
as it finds its mark in the darkness,
slipping away unsure,
we all fall down.

Days of dreams and ebook sale

Waking in the thick of night
dreams leave the mind through portals
of opened eyes and muddled thoughts.
I flounder about to make some sense,
the full moon says it all.
Deep sleep lulls
the mind that strays in fantasy
of unknown faces and remembered places
I stretch the soul into newness
and grasp the dreams
unfolding like paths
before me.

Good morning friends, I’ve had a lot of busy days working, but on my last two days off, I finally took a writing break away from my third novel.

My second novel is in the editors hands, and the third (the sequel to Tales) is underway, and the first book is on sale today at .99 cents for the ebook. If you’re interested in a fun read, Tales From The Thrift is the name and author is K.L.Laettner.
