These Are The Times

image

Shimmering radiance
of full moons glow.

Never more alive than
those moments when

I peel back the layers
of rote habit.

Prodding my inner core,
allowed to feel

my real emotions.
Not protected but

at least I am not dulled.
These are the times

that I feel connected,
universal.

The Island

View of Alcatraz taken from the Bay Bridge

 

Heavy inversion layers

tamped down emotions

solitude of thought.

~~~

Days like these weigh on my soul

testing my psyche

in ways you can’t know.

~~~

Where does the self doubt come from?

Was it there since birth,

or learned behavior?

~~~

On an island in my mind,

watching the waves lap

and envelop me.

~~~

The sun tries hard to break free

 Focused beams puncture

through the mist and shine.

~~~

If only I can absorb

the sun’s loving rays

deeply in my heart

~~~

I can learn to love again.

The lessons of life

that guide me to peace.
