simply said

many try to weave a web
like a maze where one may
or may not find the way

I sew with simple lines
of thread to sew, to stitch
a tattered hem

my words are simple
they no longer wish
to fog in metaphoric mist

they speak of what and how
my mind has witnessed and
feels my normal hearts beat bliss

when once I too had painted
with many amalgam hue
now I only paint with yellow, green,
red and blue

lead grey and blue ink still stain
my fingers with the simple breath
of life I witness during day light and
the wondrous dreams of night

of the pain in sorrow and the
joy of laugh the tears of anguish
and a smile of pure delight

when all is said and done
writ sewn with a simple thread
is all that’s needed
in repairing the frayed hem  

it is not with sparkle or
a maze of words that will
tell the tale of where I’ve been
and who I am

a short written line and paragraph
shall entail much of what my eyes
have seen how my heart feels
in my simple way of being

welcome is the morning kiss

welcome Is the morning kiss
for when before my sleep
the viper’s hiss spoke of
portentous comings

lovely is the suns embrace
upon my face and mine
ears hear the warming breezes,
my eyes see them play with
trees and grasses

they blow, whistling of their journey
from not so far away
mostly from the north and west
their incantations are of how
the once joyous birds no longer
play In their air for it burns
of human rage

cherished is today, for tomorrow
may not be, but before I lament
the message of the wind
I shall praise the day and
kiss the daisy for this moment
while my eyes are still open
and life still holds my hand
