I’ll Meet You Soon

Oh, I’ll meet you soon, yes, I’ll search far and oh so wide
I won’t miss your life’s show, gladly be at your side.
*
I’ll look for you in that blue summer sky
Sitting on a cloud, I’ll wave and smile as you float by.
*
I’ll call out to you, as you rest on the dark side of the moon
I am sure I’ll be there quickly, perhaps by the last day in June.
*
I’ll send out a signal, directed to the brightest and largest star
You can wait there for me, I know it’s a trip, but not too awfully far.
*
I’ll find you shining there, at the crisp dark end of this universe
I know I can do it, I’ll just take a left at God’s empty purse.
*
This is my cosmos, just a long silvery-lit dream come true
Oh, I’ll meet you there, just follow this celestial map that I drew.

The Heartbreak

You won’t be the last
And I may be the first
This heart felt like slowly dying
The pain could not be reversed.
*
For when you broke me open
Scraping up all that was left inside
I was crippled and left crawling
Despite how hard I tried.
*
I wish I could tell you
Somehow show you how I have grown
Tears have made me stronger
I thrive, though I am on my own.
*
You won’t be the last
And I may be the first
I own the heartbreak now
With pain,I am well versed.
*
Yet I fear not
Because of you I grew
You won’t be the last
But I am born anew.

I Believe in You

I never believed in much

But I believe in you

I believe you can heal yourself

And start over all anew.

*

I never cared too much

But I care deeply for you

I believe you can grow deeper

And to your own dreams you’ll be true.

*

I never knew too much

Oh, but I knew about love

I studied you from up close, also from afar

And I can see love moving through you from above.

*

I never cried too much

Until you came into my life

Those tears watered my soul

And I have grown through the strife.

*

I never believed in too much

But I believe in you

Until the end, until the last breath

And this life melts away into the blue.

 

 

The End

The deadline has come and gone

It’s over

The end of the month

The end of the challenge

The place where things come to wind down

The beginning of something new.
*

What will be your purpose in this new month?

To be kind and caring every day?

Meet the challenge of compassion toward all?

Finish the project rolling around on the floor?

Continue to live your poetry?

*

Regardless, it’s certainly over

Done, finished, complete

Whether you care or not,

It has ended

And something new shall emerge.

Graphic Grief

Tears streamed down her face and turned to ice

Plunking on the ground, shattering,

Clink, clank, clunk.

The lump in her throat was splitting her in two

Ripping, shredding, pieces

Her bloody soul splashing to the ground.

How could it be repaired

The freezing, searing, unending pain

Of a too ‘oft’ broken heart?

Screaming, crying, wailing

Red anger bursts out like flames

Burning all who dare to come near.

Someday the tears will melt, no longer made of ice

In the future the shredding will end

And the flames will fade into the distance

Beyond time.

 

 

Seasonal Haikus

Winter Haiku:

Cold settles in now
Chilling me to the deepest
Snow is on the way.

Spring Haiku:

Spring is far away
I can hear it calling me
A future vision

Summer Haiku:

Summer heats us up
A jump in the coldest lake
Refreshed yet again

Fall Haiku:

A nip in the air
Leaves so slowly change and fall
The end of season

 

 

 

 

Remind Me

Call me back

Send that little message

It will help me remember

Why I am here now.

Whisper or shout

Remind me that I am to provide service

From a place of love

From a well of kindness

In a way that supports peace.

Send your messenger

And I will receive

The spiritual strength to move forward

To carry on brightly

To gather the bottom and the sides

In way that somehow lovingly crushes the top.

Use me in this time

Of great difficulty and despair

Just remind me

Fill me up

Help me to boil to the top.
