Amethyst Collection

Southern Earth Gives Way to Northern Ground

As lines give way See them fade, yellow to gray Realize what is meant when people say There are not enough hours in the day… Always thought them fools; Useless words – toys, not tools… I did not know how they could feel that way.

Amethyst Avatar

Don’t want to change a thing, lovely Amethyst avatar You’re perfect Just the way you are Don’t you know Every stone has It’s cracks and Striations Bits of dirt embedded Between jagged edges torn From the soil with Scornful impatience

Empress Amethyst

Effortless Smoke curls like Eager tail of small cat From the space between You and I Where lit cigarette rests with callous disregard For the air in which it was sparked to life Only moments before

Crescent Collection

To the Light of an Unobstructed Star (Sol)

Unfrozen Born of the same flame But not quite the same No longer divided Between The unparsed past The uncertain future Present in The present No longer trying to be The source Rather, a conduit for Secondary light Accepting this Embracing Your will Your beautiful face Smiling once more

Then It Grows Dark (Eclipse)

Birds float Branch to branch As water rushes beneath From there To here Effortless in its Slow meander Through so many hills Tunnels underneath

The Unparsed Past (Left Crescent)

Part of a three-part set. In the Second-Hand Light of the Crescent Moon (Right Crescent) Extrication (Crescent Terminal) The Unparsed Past (Left Crescent) Settling Ashes of All I know All I am Not to rise The phoenix slumbers Dreaming of Frozen tundra

The Fall of the Vapor Mystic, Part III (Even When It Cannot Be Seen)

A thick, black fog hangs low over this place now. Long shadows cast by rolling waves of darkness spilling across the houses and walkways. With each passing second, breathing becomes increasingly labored.   The windswept streets grow empty and desolate, As the life that once filled them hides behind doors and walls of brick, As … Continue reading The Fall of the Vapor Mystic, Part III (Even When It Cannot Be Seen)
