What Now? – a poem

What Now?

The ideal, the divine, the wish, the want … for some out of reach.

Once reached, life is forever changed …  in danger of collapse.

Where once was elation and clarity … the future now void and vague.

Nonetheless – a poem

Nonetheless

Defined by the moment… raised high beyond life’s normal plane.

The delicate arc of form… revealing celestial gifts.

Thankful misery in this… given to an unworthy beast.

Uncharted – a poem

Uncharted

Yielding to complacency … the end no longer defined.

Having spied the horizon …  as though pulled from the mind’s eye.

Make the best of the moment … traveling a future’s path now unlined.

Destination? – a poem

Destination?

My heart’s desire fades across time and space, racing the waves.

Yet, no matter the path traveled, my passion remains full and bright.

But should desire be fuel for the attainable or the denied?

Destruction

Destruction

I lower my guard, allowing the enemy inside.

Destruction of life’s joys … built on untold moments of tears.

My parapet’s construction begins anew upon rubble and quicksand.

Unavoidable: a Sijo poem.

Unavoidable

Time passes with twists and turns; a relentless force.

One day the scent of life’s wind is sweet, the next sour with despair.

Will the next season be rancid or rejoiceful?
