Breaking the Fall


        September's precipice
        . Trip on time's passage
        . . Avenues become canopies weeping orange
        . . . Ripe for the autumnal harvest
        . . . . Transient chill
        Revealed enigmas
        . Another sagacious query
        . . Kindred assumption--
        . . . Is there more to life than this?
        . . . . No one truly knows
        . . . . . God's intentions
        Morose skies fill the horizon
        . Overtures to occidental oblivion
        . . Trees relinquish their possessions
        . . . Hear the forthcoming frost
        . . . . Ethereal grace abounds in brown
        . . . . . Reconciling warmth with bitter cold
        . . . . . . For a seasonal promise
        . . . . . . . Use life's cycle
        . . . . . . . . Creation, existence, destruction--
        . . . . . . . . . Kindling, wasted yesterdays
        . . . . . . . . . . Essence sleeps, until next spring
        . . . . . . . . . . . Reciprocates

Resonance of Past Promises


My thoughts had always drifted
On a tortured sparrow's wings
Set aloft a dreamless world of alabaster
I wished for just one chance
To replace fear with fantasy
And with every autumn leaf that fell
I waited for my prayers to be answered

You came to me
On a sea of butterscotch dandelions
Bearing a velvet kiss
On painted lips
And beneath your veil of violet smoke
The worn edges of my dusty faith
Burst with fresh golden springs

The world that had once been stony
Glowed in an emerald lattice of dreams
All fears spooned out
And replaced with trust
My thoughts reached as high as heaven
I found an answer to a prayer

In you

Stand

No surrender
Imagination
Brought you this far
Let discipline
Guide you
Into the stratosphere
 
Spit out vertigo
Excellence never comes
Without a sacrifice
This pedestal
Is yours
Alone
To destroy
