PASSING THROUGH

  Like flowers that bloom for a season, We are. Passing through time and space, with souls seeking the transcendent do we leave behind tears or fragrance? We are passing through time and space Partings are our song’s refrain. Do we leave behind tears or fragrance – a single act touches generations. Partings are ourContinue reading “PASSING THROUGH”

LIFE IN LYRICS

Isn’t it romantic to have life in lyrics – everything is larger than it should be Tears continue flowing while the song is sung Forever and ever like looping time Heartbreak never mends in the musical pedestal Sing it! sing it! Again and again Keep the pain as raw as when it began Oh! but,Continue reading “LIFE IN LYRICS”

UPSIDE DOWN

WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
