Ode to a bear…

Just when I thought you were out of my life

I opened a box long sealed and covered in dust.

Green, furry, soft and wrapped in a bow

you are a reminder of a past I’ve struggled daily to forget.

Your eyes stare and secrets from long ago

try to sneak up into the light and back into my life.

But today you are just a bear.

Nothing more.

And I am stronger for it.

No Trespassing

I toss and turn,

thoughts of you race

through my head.

You promised the world

but you lied and

broke my heart.

Now you trespass

in my dreams

and haunt me instead.

Sun Sets on WaterWorks Park

There is no denying the physical beauty this world can manifest.

If only that beauty could shine as bright in every face and every place.

Our world would truly be a better place.

This photo was taken on my cellphone yesterday at WaterWorks Park in Des Moines, IA. I wish I had had a better camera with me to capture the true brilliance of the moment. It was breathtaking.

another birthday…

another time

another place

another pill

another face

another love

another loss

another job

another boss

another gone

another home

another state

another milestone

another dollar

another tear

another night

another year

another room

another way

another choice

another birthday

ugly hateful

words cut

short innocence

and beauty

of thought

and deed

because

rare is theĀ 

man who lives

and breaths

tolerance

in a world

of MINE

you

give because

you can

love because

you want and

thrive because

you care

embrace

an open heart

it is the door

to happiness

and the key

to grace

Where Am I?
