A Photograph, That Reminds Me Of…

Sparkling eyes and tender flesh are shielded  From the world in a tight hug. A photograph captures my father’s love. Gentle waves come home to shore, sloshing against the sand,  A constant in this changing land. Sunset paints the azure sky,  And its fiery orb disappears into cool gray water.

Our past lives, it’s like Déjà vu

They say past lives don’t exist They aren’t real We just need to hear about ourselves It’s how we cope, just how we deal. We only exist until we don’t DNA is why we’re “unique” Horoscopes and the cosmos are for a mind that’s meek We romanticize as shortcuts to answers we seek. Yet we hear great songs with our hearts Before our ears And … Continue reading Our past lives, it’s like Déjà vu
