Mining The Obscure








navel gazing turns distant
sinking inwards
unearthing wormholes existence


while wonder
swirling featherless
mines the obscure


and I'm left wondering
if dark matter matters


if my world is whirling
or if it's me that's swirling

motionless
in the whirlpool of life


trapped circling the absence

of everything and nothing

Fingerprinting Truth

"Write to be understood, speak to be heard, read to grow . . ."  L C Powell
 

Silence Is Golden
Mixed Media Art Painting

a tongue speaks in disguised thoughts
articulating the betrayal
of words
    of sound
        of silent wisdom
as barely a whisper screams expression
bridging the gap between want and choice
where footprints are seen
not heard
merely echoes reflecting reality
visible in all their falseness
and behind the mass of disquiet
a heart's beat measures the load
of intrepid, hell-bent mutterings
determined to fingerprint truth

#Reverb14: Loving What Is

It’s all too easy to put off loving where we are until everything is perfect. What can you love about where you are now?



Half-brained thoughts, unfinished art, random scraps of paper with words scrawled on them, unread books piled high, a laundry pile that threatens to topple, a kitchen sink full of dirty dishes . . . . . . all of these can have me feeling as though my life is unraveling.


Then I turn on some music, head to the studio and in that moment, in the mess of it all, life is good.

#Reverb14: Certainty

Take a quiet moment to consider: what can you say right now with certainty?

 
Opening the brown cardboard box my breathing instinctively slows and with a deep breath, I lift out the tree, bound in burlap with a red bow, the one you bought for me.

Straightening branches and adjusting lights, I feel the tenuous link to Christmases past, the ones with you in them.  The lights blur and in a teary haze, I see you.  Somehow, you found the strength to give us that last Christmas Day for sixteen days later you would breathe your last breath.

Time nudges me forever forward but there is one thing I am certain of . . . I will always love you.

Bound Tightly Open


the end of beginnings
the beginning of ends
observer of the insipid
of disingenuous truth
 
piercing introspective
rattling nerves
as key
to a lockless room

a fingerprint
in a sea of hands
pained
by the strength of scars

label adhered wounds
full-mouthed and slipping
stitched up , threaded
bound tightly open
