Maestro Fear

Spinning your web among the shadows
Stringing present times with a skewed teenage me
My only accompaniment for too long
I've allowed your cacophony to cloud my view of the horizon
Anxious that a pastime of counting the hours of silence would return.
Thought a concert of tears past cried, I rise and suffer no more.
It's time to dampen your impact and await permeating melodies
No need for an encore
The coda has passed.

Tangerine Sun

Aiming forward through the suspended dew
Squinting at dawn's tangerine sun 
Chasing a state of mind where she can
Let go of familiar comforting fears

Philosophies are tested, 

and her pendulum oscillates too far
Soon, she will settle rhythmically 
On a new unexpected equilibrium

Images captured
Her timeline has ticked forward

She’s been long sorting the negatives
By a dim red light

Irises just slivers here, well adjusted
To discerning depth in shadows

She’s choosing those worthy of keepsakes;
Though, not recognizing the players

Enlarging and exposing,
Washing away remnants before hanging

Allowing for frozen memories,
Knowing not what they will become

She emerges terrified,
Being deprived of light too long

Sit, enter the mind
Chase away that wind, those sighs
Focus, breathe, let go
The mind travels t
o where
A pyramid with glass walls rises
Into a dwelling to protect from the world, yet
observe it
He came in sight with pants frayed near the heal,
round pinky toes visible, and piercing insight intact
He's here by the expansive shade of a Bodhi tree
An embrace of thought conforts the soul
My lips rise in the corners
He promises a next time
