extreme

gaining speed,
throwing caution
to the wind,
this momentum will be
the death of us all.

labels

some labels
are hard to remove,
as if the person,
who stuck them to you,
used too strong a glue.

clarity from wonder

rediscover that childlike wonder
that caused you to ask so many questions as a kid.

Box

Look, the box,
With its own place,
Is what it is,
Quite different,
Within the same.

digital me

getting out into the digital world,
i wonder if i'll ever be able to share
myself with anyone who can't look
into my eyes or hear my voice.

and, i wonder,
who do they see?

Joyful Whims

Most of the time
I would just watch and listen.
She never said anything very profound,
but what I heard
was not the words themselves,
but the spirit in which
she carried herself,
as if she were a bird
taking wing on the wind,
and it gave her the lift
that made her soar.
It was life to me,
reminding me of real joy,
and expressing it,
and all for love.
Though she said little
of much importance,
it was her spirit I heard,
and it woke the similar in me,
that pure whim
where we let ourselves fly.

Shine

The Sun Shines For Us,
But Doesn't Know Its Worth.

city life

coming and going,
streets pulsing
like heartbeats;
so many people
pushing the city life.
