Give me

Give me a purpose for living Give me just one Give me a song I can sing Under the sun Give me the steps I can dance In front of my foes Give me the mercy I need To heal all my woes Give me a reason today A reason to be Give me a…

Think of me

Think of me as if I had your name With no part of me there Think me an extension of you An arm, maybe, or leg A vague appendage existing Just for your consideration I reflect you, complete you Exist for you My essence is subsumed by you Think of me as I disappear into…

Daily Magic

Looking for magic in faraway places In myths and lore and legends of old Seeing the wonder in everyday spaces The mystical in the mundane Follow the lure of the eldritch other Dancing with witches under the moon Gleam of starlight shining so gently Beauty in windswept night Immerse yourself in the fairy tale places…

The Right Choice

Moebius Stripping

Treading all the familiar pathways Singing all the same old songs Two steps forward Two steps back Marching in place Til our feet wear holes in the floor Talk about life’s journey Pretend there is a destination As we ride our carousel horses Moebius stripping along our way Rushing headlong into nowhere Hey, haven’t we…

Bethlehem’s Star

They came from the east Following a path of light Taking a leap of faith To a new tomorrow A new star shines Hovers over a small town Lighting up the night With promises of glad tidings Through dangers and hardship The wise journey on Til they come to the place Where the world has…
