“Could We Imagine”

COULD WE IMAGINE

If there were no Death
No need for Heaven
No need for Hell
Just dreams to live by

Without Death no end to Life
With Life forever it would bring on the Light
It would take away the Darkness
And Shadow worlds would fill the spaces

Without War there would be Peace
Without bullets guns would be broken
With Equality we would be Free
In a World where we live as One

“Secrets Running Scared”

SECRETS RUNNING SCARED

Her blue car stands out in a herd of parked cars
All meant to be part of the congregation
The blue streaks inside memories gone past
Living within a hidden room closed in the mind

Secrets running scared not wanting daylight’s touch
The ink scurrying across the page away from forming truths
Fearing the emotions, recalling how close her body felt
She held me in her arms, a lasting time awakening touch

Confidence in retreat caressed by butterflies quieting the anxiety
Her voice electrifying the invisible space with lightning flashes
Frightening away the flesh eaters grabbing at skin, stealing the feelings
Dreams of truth haunting the recall, clouding the hidden shadows.

“Shall I compare thee…?”

XVIII.

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

—William Shakespeare, Sonnet XVIII
