Summer’s Descent

Stale heat on my face and stale air in my lungs. Summer is casting long shadows across my face. Sidewalks are baking and the sky is clear. The sun is oppressing and fans are our only salvation. The pool water is just as hot as the asphalt. Cookies baking on the sidewalk. Popsicles are puddles.... Continue Reading →

Gazing At The Stars

A starlight night with no clouds in sight. Taking in the majesty of the world above. Fire from millions of miles away light up our night. It pierces through space just to reach our eyes. You're looking up and smiling. Your eyes twinkle in the light. When I look into them I can see the... Continue Reading →

Dancing In The Light

Raise from the dead and dance in the light. For the night did not steal you away. You are still here and you are still breathing. No matter how dark the night got, you are still here. So jump up and dance. Dance in the light. Do not be afraid of death's shadow. For you... Continue Reading →

Midsummer Memories

Garden State

I'm living in a garden state, A place where things are perfectly placed. Not one thing is out of order. Beauty is only achieved through maintenance and strict order. Creativity is not rewarded. Only beauty and symmetry matter. Roses are here and violets are there. Not a single petal out of line. You can not... Continue Reading →

Puddles

When the storms stop, and the dark clouds are gone, the children run out to jump in the puddles. They splash and play in the miniature lakes making them seem like giants hovering over the water. The liquid mirrors the children dance in remind the adults of the past and future. Puddles are the remnants... Continue Reading →
