inside out


i kept wondering why the inside of my tea box looked so pretty and then realized i could turn the box inside out and re-glue it. the lesson here is: it really is what's on the inside that counts!

forest for the trees

damp dawn filled day
stumbling over rocks and road blocks
whispering prayers of disbelief
to walls holding back silence
fingers of doubt and death
the tenrils, clinging dew drops
seep into cracks and creased edges
beauty found where life is lost

smoke in my eyes

(looking out instead of looking in
impatiently waiting for a sign to begin)

star light
star bright
first star i see tonight
i wish i may
i wish i might
have this wish i wish tonight
