On The Horizon

The event horizon breaches
Sunlight washing a world
Upon crystalline field’s
Frosted diamonds shine

The point of no return
As the new day breaks
For all to see; few do
The eternal cares not

One world of many, alone
Le point verge, of this one
Never to be denied or lost
Observing the point of all

Paint

I could paint you red
To show the turmoil
That sometimes rages
Inside in your head

I could paint you green
To show how gentle
You still remain
After all you have seen

I could paint you in gray
Graceful beauty as the night
Dancing in the stars
Across the milky way

If I were truly an artist
I would not change a thing
You are perfection to me
In all the colors of your past

Stoic Poetry

Autumn

The flowers have all gone
Most of the leaves as well
But change is for the best
A new story nature will tell

The crunch underfoot
Still can make me smile
Along quiet forest trails
For mile after mile

Soon snowy blankets
Will cover the land
From hilltop to valley
Walking hand in hand

Stoic Poetry

Narrow Spaces

Living within the lines
This narrow bound lane
Leaves no room to grow
No matter what they claim

Narrow spaces hurt the soul
But often we become blind
And never see the walls
Built to hold and bind

Step beyond the lines
Look to the other side
To the beauty beyond
Pushing against the tide

Stoic Poetry

Twilight Serenade

The ghost of summer fades
Lost butterfly on failing wings
Fly your last in the cold chill air
Fading as if you were never there

A path that is so erratic
Yet you try to find your way
So much like everyone else
Looking for the way ourselves

Stoic Poetry

Prisms

Rainbow glitter
Through morning frost
Colors given
Without a cost

Sing of creation
Amongst the pale
For those with eyes
Nature will regale

Some are blind
Others will choose
The little things
While others refuse

Stoic Poetry

A Better Way

There has to be a better way
Than going back and forth
Doing right, doing wrong
Because of how we were taught
Taught by them, who we are

No matter the bumps and bruises
No matter the scars or the pain
Can we simply believe in truth?
Born flawless we can never forget
What you say we are cannot be us

Stoic Poetry

Just Sometimes

When sunlight glints
And I am aware
I can see behind
More than is there

Beauty unbound
Reflected on faces
In common things
And far off places

I will remain
Here for a while
The rest of today
I will carry this smile

Stoic Poetry

Blooms

Full of bloom and colour, sun full overhead
Face turned skyward embrace nature’s gift
Long days of bounty, endless joy of which we read
Heedless, careless, forgetful of the cold dark rift

No thought of seasons extending beyond the sun
Prepare not, time has no bearing, no dominion here
No one to tell us of things that must be done
Too late we realize, the shadow season, so near

Stoic Poetry

Hold On

Hold on to what you are
Guard close your heart
Flames climb into the night
Lapping at our heels
They aim to tear us apart

These days try to bind us
Bound by mortal chains
But time is on our side
Patience always the virtue
Far beyond our remains
