This Literary Work

Consistently considerate

Calmingly collective

Faithful as forever

A Remedy for radical emotion

An inspiration for intellectual observance

Therapy, proven tried and true

A love of exceeding forgiveness

Found blameless and without reservation

Compositional reflection

Textual interpretation

Of mortal existence

And the basics of life

Of living, laughter, and loss

Made possible on paper by the production of wood pulp

To pricelessly bare a writer’s consciousness with a pen

Typed on a screen with countless punches of letter keys

By the fingertips of a devoted linguistic

Formed on colorless, slim folios

And the smooth lips of a speaker

In a crowd ready to listen and eager to heartily hear

The intent that motivates those words

Reminisce

Reminisce

The past is the past but it doesn’t mean I won’t look back

Memories are the mirror for what was and for what can be

It’s not a crime to remember

Or to miss a miracle or blessing

Life isn’t long enough to live ungrateful
A moment can never be relived

A breath can never be breathed again

Cherish the the day, every day

For nothing in this world is a guarantee

Raindrops 💧

Raindrops 💧

I follow each raindrop

As it falls from the sky in slow motion

I watch as each drop latches onto everything it touches

Saturating anything and everything it can soak

 

Maybe sliding down a car window

Saying a simple hello

To its fasinated spectators

As they watch it slide down

Hitting the cold clear glass

 

Or when it drips into a small puddle

Filling it up as if it’s a tiny ocean

 

It’s warm generosity towards earth’s elements

Giving each one refreshment

Is just enough for my appreciation

As each plants thirsts

For the cold fresh rain that brings life

Eagerly waiting

As their roots grow brittle

 

The times I’ve wanted it to go away

Disliking the atmosphere of a wet rainy day

 

When the plants are dying

The clouds are crying

 

Making a difference

For a tree or two
