The Reaper

I am the soul of November, Wandering down through the days, Reclaiming the ground for the Winter, to be born again in the Spring, In nights that grow ever colder, In skies filled with clouds full of rain, I am the soul of November, Changing the landscape again. Dreaming curled up near the fire, Sleeping... Continue Reading →

Autumn’s Crossing

The weather has begun its turn, As once green leaves begin to burn, Into an Autumn fantasy of flames, Whispering long-forgotten names,   Walking in the rain, on bare feet, Dancing to a tin roof beat, Moonlight on a private stage, Romance laced dreams and so much rage.   Rose petal wines, subtle stares, Knights...

This time of year… Better Than Ezra

https://youtu.be/LTwzKRjJkA0 I've been incredibly busy lately. Hoping to get to writing in the next couple of days. Better Than Ezra's "Deluxe" is one of my all-time favorite albums. This is a great song about this time of year. TS   Featured Image: Roots and Autumn Leaves, Teri Skultety

With All Fine Corpses

With All Fine Corpses Autumn has come, With all fine corpses masquerading in the folds, Of her steady winds as they ride cool, Through the night. At her building breath, The trees shedding their fading endowment, Of a Season past. She is present now, In all her fired splendor, In all her rain-soaked ash, Her... Continue Reading →

Autumnal Equinox

The City, the weather turning now. The Harvest Moons rising high against the edge of the water. Boats rocking against the piers. Tankers and cargo ships anchored in the bay, the waves pushing against the locks. Giant glowing balloons beckoning the bounty of Autumn shorn from the surface of the plentiful terrain, loaded into the... Continue Reading →

Stoicism

Stoicism Beneath the layers of the artifice of years, The ego, The tough exterior that isnโ€™t, Or, wasnโ€™t. The chip off the old block On my shoulder, I am truly Sweetness. My rebellion broken With my realization Of my pain And the release Of my anger. The shrew barely tamed, And renamed. Though some rebellions,... Continue Reading →

I Believe

Each moment that I live and breathe, I believe, Yes, I believe, In caterpillars and butterflies, In thunderstorms and clear blue skies, I believe in angels strong, who guard me when the night grows long And I believe in a love divine that lingers in this heart of mine, To heal my dreams and keep...

Walt Whitman, Pioneers

https://youtu.be/Ab7v1BRnWc0 I'm reading a book about Abraham Lincoln and was reminded once again of this poem by Walt Whitman as Whitman was of that time. I think some weren't too keen on it when Levi's used some of this poem to sell jeans, but I thought it was great because it introduced a new audience... Continue Reading →
