lost
somewhere between me and the trees
as high as the sky
surrendering to rays of sunlight
I stopped here to try to find
what I left lost
up in the branches
where my

laying under its canopy
I feel the elegance
give air to my breath
in and out and inandout
and in
trickling down its limbs
slowly start to drip into my soul
I’ll stay here long enough for
creativity like maple syrup
to taste how sweet
my imagination can be

this day will dissipate into your skin
soaked up in the sweet smell of cherry blossoms
the roads leading you home
wading through the moments, the breath of the trees
captured in the preciousness of the sky
painting colors you’ll never again see
reflected by your rawest version
join in the un-prediction
journey into the unplanned
find a smile on your lips for no reason
surrender into the stillness

there will be freedom
freedom is as freedom is
a daybreak in the march
a song that directs the confusion
I’ll call it forever
as ever as ever is
let this dream float from our lips
so wide, so vast
searching for what to believe
afraid of the reminiscence of speech
talking without a sound
thinking without a plan
find me here find me
as pure as eyes were created to be
make it all that we see
close this day all alone
let our feet be greeted
by a place called hope

catching the sun

flickering at first
starting to peer into you
watching from the most vulnerable place
a place far away and close enough
to find a source of energy
the rush of a new picture in your mind
the hollowness of knowing it won’t be the same
emotions fuel your fingertips
tap tap tap on the glass of this windowpane
a window to the shadows
a spectrum of only. if. maybe. again
the time seems to fly through your bones
existence is stuck in the sinking commotion
how do I tell you to find me another day?
how do I show you how I exist?
how do I sing a song so sweet
so sweet that the salt fades into sugar
I imagine you and me in shaded grass
a place we have never met
where it makes sense
my toes are heavy on the crispness of
the lightness of light, of unbound bareness
it’s here-you find a way
to breathe into my weary soul
I find a way to let you
nothing else but nothing more, nothing less..
this is where we start to run
you and I and a place that might have been-
both longing to catch the sun

find reflections


sweet sky light
up the night
I watch a spider-
reflect the moon
intricate little steps
its legs shimmer in the dark
a moon and spider-
so unaware
the brilliance
they bring each other

so maybe tonight
I’ll think about
how unaware I am
to those I reflect
and reflect me

sweet sky light
up the day
I watch the weeds-
reflect the sun
dancing through the water
a spotlight catches their movement
a sun and some weeds-
so unaware
the beauty
they bring to each other

so maybe today
I’ll think about
how unaware I am
to those who bring out
my true beauty
