Do you hear
the deafening declaration
of the definite,
the dauntless,
dissolving the dawn?

Do you taste
the whorling whirlwind
the whizzing wonder
of the wilderness
in winter?

Do you see
the homebound hero
here and there,

Do you feel
the rhythmic rolling,
radiant, remorseless rumbling
rocking the revolution
as it roars?

Do you smell
the aroma of addiction
arousing the animal
alive inside
as it awakens?

Do you know
the pang of pollution,
purity plundered,
passion pulsing

Do you ever experience
this wondrous world
you wander in?
The wisteria
and the willow,
The whistler
and the whittler,
the woodpecker
and the windchimes,
the wonderers
and the wanderers.

Have you met
the traveller?
Twisted tree,
Torn temple,
Tireless twinkling eyes.

“Welcome to the world.”


I want to hold on to this week, but I’m not sure if here is the place to do it. So instead, you get a list of random thoughts about nothing.

Disclaimer: I always hate these posts on other blogs. So, if you’re like me, go read one of my other posts. Or don’t. Just skip this one. It’s the first time I’ve done this and it might be the last. Or like, feel free to use them as writing prompts or something. I’d love to see what you come up with in the comments below. Just know all work is copyrighted ;P

-The fire may have flickered, but the embers never died.

-I miss the creek already.

-I claim your words.

-This may be a spiritual battle, but the forces are greater than me. And of the two, I know which is stronger.

-God is not based on how I feel, but on who he is.

-Here, it’s harder.

Weird post, I know. I’m sorry. But it’s been a long week. Blessings,
