Poem: Pocono Mountain Morning

Pocono Mountain Morning

Pocono Mountain morning
Heavy rain beats down on roof above
Brushing and splattering upon the green scenery on display

Watch droplets on the window
Listen to the pat, pat, pattering
Kayaks sit idly for now
Near the sweeping waters aroused by the storm

Breathe in the morning
Wetness all around purifies the world
And me

Others sleep
I’ll sit in this chair
Shifted to a window’s view
That’s what I do

Poem: Counsel


Awash in emotions long-contained deep within
This perilous path must dig deep ‘neath the skin
The hiding in masks only serves to benumb
And parts need all parts to equate to the sum
Fear is the riddle ever twisting of thought
You’ve been found passing by what’s forever been sought
Where often the journey leaves indelible mark
The lessons of scars can be blessedly stark
Travel in circles, sometimes roads know no end
A map has been laid … and the world will amend
Answers yield questions too numerously given
The perfectly placed left subconsciously riven
The crossroads are met with a reckoning glance
Left yet unwritten – walk away or advance?
