Bare Windows

DhExgvWjSv6iOkt9F5DQsQ_thumb_9b5e

I look out upon the landscape

broken hearts lay everywhere

no covers on these windows

no shades no shelter from harsh mouthed mothers of opinion

no words of wisdom or compassion too few hands to care

but I hear night stars still tell wonder stories

and if we listen they will shine our fears away

when we feel lost or sad or lonely

when we’re tossed into chaos winds of if only

silent stars are rising up to guide the way

Wire

image

I got a little wire in my soul

helps me believe I’ll never grow cold

When I falter I feel a gentle jolt

I got a little wire in my soul

I can’t see it and nor can you

Pretty sure it’s hot electric blue

Keeps me learning always something new

I got a wire in my soul.

 

Empty Pages

Fill up all the empty pages

can’t seem to say what I want to say

all those phrases empty spaces

between me and a better way

I draw close to pen and paper so word wary

no resonance no rhythm no meaning necessary

I can’t dance

I can’t sing

I can’t wrestle this night train down

I can’t keep this beat

up time in my mind

Listen to the distant howling

is that a watcher in the wood?

Raise a wave for the black bird flying high

It is impossible to reach there

but I’m still going to try

And bird rides straight on through blood red sky
