Discovery

Discovery

Pastel colors awash
with periwinkle blue
on a watercolor beach.

Waiting in line to change
back into myself-
I saw you.

Life Beware!

Life Beware!

Steel mills belching smoke into the lifeless horizon
orange cotton candy clouds offering no smiles.
Through the evening soup the shorebirds flew
the glorious unfeeling sunset silhouetting them.
Black specs thrown up against the stained canvas 
of a sky painted into a death grin.
Life beware!

Tangaga #1

Tangaga #1

Slow and steady wins the race
when you keep a stable pace
watch your step and keep your head
you will finish first instead.

One Man's Window Is Another Man's World

One Man's Window Is Another Man's World

You always want what you don't have
once you have it you want more
then you see what someone else has
now what you have is just a bore.

You always want the things that they have
but once you have them it's no good
because by then they'll have the next thing
maybe what you have is what you should.

You could enjoy it while you have it
you know that life just ain't that tough
because we only go around once
accepting what you have might be enough.
