HORIZONS… a poem

areal photography of ocean

Don’t count me in

I’m leaving again

Your horses are dragging me down

Like clouded sun rays

You ruin my days

I don’t want to see you around

But the only way out

And away from your pout

Is for me to go back out to sea

Where the air is much fresher

Without you and your pressure

Just horizons that beckon to me

COUNTERACTING KINDNESS… a poem

woman placing duct tape on her mouth

Calibrate this silence in my mind so I can hear

There’s so much in the world distracting me

What of all the plans we made

It always seemed so clear

Now, nothing’s making sense – just rambling

close up photography of rainbow rays on eye

These eyes no longer focus on what’s important in my life

Pollution to my retinas cause me stress

Lessons once were learned

But now elongate in their strife

I wake up every morning – a new mess

silhouette man looking at the sky

To touch the sweet horizon would be heaven on this plane

Kinship in its purest shape and form

But how do we recover

When you won’t even say my name

Counteracting kindness – now the norm
