A (wise) man of two faces
Musings, commentary, and the occasional parade of novelty.

Updates Monday - Friday

Candy hearts

Hate’s the sweetest thing -
it’s easier to swallow
than most medicine.

Love’s a harder sale -
it needs careful nurturing
and encouragement.


The morning after

The sky looks different,
but I know that is not true;
I’m the one who changed.


Untamed

The wylds of nature
remain a stone’s throw away,
off the beaten path.


Nightshade

Indigo night sky,
you see such scandalous sights,
you blush a deep plum.


Unmasked

You talk a good game,
but I’ve seen you unguarded.
I know your true face.


Drum circle

The thunder and heat,
the reverberating beat -
echoes of Summer.


Meditation

A crouching stillness
unspoken conversation
self-study project.


Updraft

The breeze feels so good,
blowing swarthy ocean air
'cross my parched heart.


Madness

Each and every day
I do the exact same thing,
chuckling softly.


Silhouette

Graceful in the dark
I cannot see your face but
I can see you dance.


Perennials

Seasons come and go,
April showers make way for
returning flowers.


Lightning in a bottle

Restless energy,
desperate for an outlet
no matter the cost.


Dauntless

The joy of children
filled with boundless energy
until it’s nap time.


Consequence

It’s not easy but
take responsibility
for what you have done.


Trance

Notes floating along
like bubbling water with
flashing colors.
