Poetry is the opening and closing of a door, leaving those who look through to guess about what is seen during the moment. – Carl Sandburg

Come the Sun

This poem is a reflection on setting your hopes where they cannot be realized. Just like the most pleasant and vivid of dreams, try as you may you will eventually wake up to reality. It is called Come the Sun and you can read it in it’s entirety on HubPages. Thanks for taking a look!

Come the Sun

God, she was too perfect
though she was but a dream
a figment of my imagination
existing there only it seems

She saw me for who I was
always seemed to understand
offered me her friendship
extended me her hand

The Love We Make

The Love We Make
(for peanut)

my mind still spins,
my heart it aches
with the memory of
the love we make

hasten back to me
dear heart of mine
and bring the love
for which I pine

for a single day
is far too much
to go without
your loving touch



Beaten by Five Minutes by Rick Stephen

Beaten by five minutes
it’s the story of my life
who knew five short minutes
could cut so like a knife

You can miss so very much
when you’re late to start
in three hundred little seconds
you can lose your hopeful’s heart

In that brief space of time,
that handful of mere seconds
someone else can swoop in
and you could finish second!

Don’t hesitate, don’t think twice
don’t even take the chance
don’t hold back a tiny bit
when it comes to sweet romance

So in a race for a heart
don’t be the late beginner
being second’s same as last
there can only be one winner!

Writer’s Block … Again!

I’m thinking I must have bought several of these without knowing because it doesn’t matter where I am now, I can’t seem to write a word! Of course, I’ve had writer’s block before. Several times, in fact. But this is one of the worst droughts I have suffered in quite some time. I’ve done all the usual things that have helped break the block in the past all to no avail. If someone has some spare inspiration they can send my way, it would be very much appreciated! I’d be glad to return the favor in the future. 🙂
