Tanka

flashing west coast sky

minutes move forward—time lost

dark awakening…

morning brightens east coast sun

lingering days, nighttime falls

feeling abandoned

lost scared alone and wasted

never satisfied,

eyes opened to life’s despair

claims her power to reform

The Final Hour

softly she whispered

as her final hour had come,

she transitioned to

a place where pain and sadness

are gone, never to return.

Blank Stare

that wispy smile begs

the question of your strayed love

has my nerves anxious,

your touch is void of feeling,

blank stare hiding you cheated

Have No Fear

storms of life reveal

emotional dimensions,

face shows sadness ‘til

you begin to remember

His eye is on the sparrow

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?”
— Matthew‬ ‭6:26-27‬ ‭NIV‬‬
