Poem – Simple

A quiet evening as the dust settles and chaos is held at bay, watching the sunset with nature’s creatures. Simple. These moments defining a life provide peace and a bit of knowledge grounding our place to and within the world.

Poem – Existence

Poem – Untitled

Empty streets absorb and reflect yellow lamps and release the shadows of wandering souls and children. This is what has become of the city we dearly loved. ~ Before the sun hands over the day to the moon we drive west on main street until we leave town and 2-story houses are replaced with red […]
