Kicking up wishes


Kicking up wishes
Dreams to the sky
A field full of hopes
Weeds will not die

Seedlings of longing
Wonder and whims
Blowing intentions
Desires on the wind

Fantasies floating
Realities soon
Joy deeply planted
More sunshiny blooms

Lovely I l l u s i o n


Come over here
Tell me promises you can’t keep
With your lost guitar
Serenade me in sleepless sleep
And in happiest daydreams
I will silently weep
Knowing I must keep
Burying those words deep
In the sands of time
That somehow taste sweet
Feeling the dirt in my smile
Granules between my teeth
As I turn over and feel
Blank cold sheets
In wee morning hours waking
To find I’m not undeceived
For you’ll never be
What I’ll always believe

sea to sky


“Sirene”, Gaston Hoffmann

heights and depths hold my interests most

if i could but fly to the clouds

then plunge beneath the swirling coasts

i’d sink right to the ocean floor

then burst forth onto heights i’d soar

creature with both a fish’s tail

and angel’s wings to cut through air

i’d swim through waters deep and wide

i’d sail through both the sea and sky

“If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,

even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.”

~ Psalm 139:9-10
