Rancho Mirage

Is this a dream, a hallucination, a

mirage wavering, watery with green grass

sparkling watery pools, fountains dancing,

palm trees bent by invisible hands, growing

leeward and then straight, sky bound?

This can’t be real. The world isn’t this good,

this pure happiness of beauty and calm

and perfect 79 degrees warm and sunny

doesn’t exist. But I am here.

Even if this melts into nothingness. I

am here, now, lost in the illusion of peace.

Found family

Found homes, found loves, found past lives

Isn’t that the point?

Paradise Delayed

Paradise delayed

Because you had to see if

One drink would matter.
It did. And now you’re

Lost again, cut off from me

And our family
And our love. Alone

A pale shadow of yourself.

Lesson learned yet?

A welcome surprise
to end my day
my candle burning bright
on the mantle
as never before
when the flickering frail flame
smothered under melted wax
would sputter into
nothingness, but now
for no reason
it lives, it breathes
it lights my darkness
and gives me hope
that my wish
will come true
will appear
in spontaneous
combustion, coming home
to me.

The drafts go unpublished.

What is it that I

Just won’t let you see?

Doesn’t matter anymore.

Because no one is looking.

I’ve lost my one fan…was it

something left unsaid?

Dried Up

Creative juices

no longer flowing, surging

not like years ago.
Does this mean I’m done?

I’m not the poet I once

pretended to be?
Or is it just calm

peacefulness that sucks me dry?

Drama inspires.
