A Creation Experiment

A word lit the flame. Hooded figures chanted. The fire grew, and smoke billowed. This world, a failed experiment, would burn to start anew.

Carry Me Home

Twilight casts its shadow
Upon the open door
Colors swirl on gentle breezes
Winter comes once more

Day shutters to its end
Last light crawls upon the shore
Where ships wait to take us home
When no spark remains,
We close the darkened door

Summer’s End

Upon the breeze,
The scent of rain, refreshing, new.
Upon the breeze,
Sounds of lost laughter stir the trees.
I just notice something else too.
Summer storm brings the scent of you,
Upon the breeze.

Al Fine

When we are young, we underestimate how fast it will go.
We underestimate the ebb and flow.
There is no way we could know.
We just complain as we go.
What have we to show?
Time flies…Presto!
The end.
