Thoughts About Rain

Wonder when, and wonder why
The sky was blue, now comes the rain
The birds don’t fly, they hide away
Tell me heavens, why do you cry?

The Garden of Stars

Finally got my author copies! I’m very excited to say I have a novella available now on Amazon called The Garden of Stars. Feel free to check it out if you’re interested in Lovecraftian horror, it definitely borrows a lot from the genre.

The link to it isĀ here

Anodyne

Paradox
A simpleton
Awaken from your slumber

A brazen ox
The callous din
Now death has called your number

What a time
And place so fair
I’d wish for nothing greater

Sweetest rhyme
No more to bare
Be wary, says the satyr

Can I take
The ruthless shame
Life no longer fills me

Endless lake
So filled with blame
These roots rot the whole tree

Saturnine
Of endless shine
Take me one and all

With anodyne
Send me a sign
Sink back and let it fall

Here I am
But here I go
The soul will never mend

Oh darling lamb
What you don’t know
Will break you in the end

Prayer to the Night

‘Nary a whisper shook me that night
For it was the silence that held me so tight
And told me my name, in its humble way
But I should forget it the very next day
Such is the world, and so does it say
Will I remember, when light gives away?
I shouldn’t think so, for memory does sleep
Perhaps it’s too ghastly and buried too deep
Or perhaps it will find me one day when it may
Let me be gone before then, or so do I pray

Song for Persephone

Seasons come and go, like the wind
On high
Maybe this time you can stay here
If you will
Nothing is ever assured, I fear, but the
Changing seasons
The world will turn and all my love
Will follow
In revolutions

The sun once set far below the earth
Out of sight
And there it met the moon and thought
What a delight
Is the sun any different, no matter where
It may be
Will the moon still find it as they turn
Somewhere out
In the galaxy

So stay here, alas, my sweetest love
Dear Persephone
No matter how the spring may call
Never leave
Your mother says that I’m no good
That may be
But I’ll love you no matter the seasons
So please stay
Dear Persephone

Song of the Hearth

We won’t take the long way ’round
The mountain high, singing in the sky
I’ll dance and shake my cares away
And plow right through with all the grace
Of a rhino on the savanna

So look above, and look below
Don’t worry what it is you know
The snow is piling up outside
So take a shovel, leave your pride
Get outside, start shoveling

The fire’s got me on the mend
If only it could lend me a friend
A single spark would do me good
But I think the fire will sit
And keep on muttering

Now I find the day is at an end
My wishes haven’t been fulfilled
But it’s okay, I’ll sleep for now
And wake up in the morning loud
Wishing, always wishing

Song of Patient Waiting

What does it take, my dear?
For your fear to melt away
I’m waiting for the break of day
And now you’ve gone and left me

Why do you cry, my dear?
Eyes wet with tears, you fade
And everything that we’ve made
Is slowly lost to bad memories

I wrote you a song, my dear
Hope is mere days from now
I’ve told myself, because I’m down
Ever since you left your honeybee

So listen close to me, my dear
I’ll sing you this soft poetry
And hope that you’ll return to me
By the end of the lonely night

I wish I only knew, my dear
Why you’ve up and gone away
And filled my heart with dismay
While winter eats my frozen soul

So listen close to me, my dear
I’ll sing you this soft poetry
And hope that you’ll return to me
By the end of this lonely season
