Head vs. heart

Exhaustion vs. anxious energy

Joy vs. misery

Difficult situations rolling like water from a duck’s back; simple acts eliciting freak-outs


Longing, lacking,

cup overflowing

Confusion, crystalline pain

The grounding grasp of tiny clasp,

The constricting clutch of oh-so-much


Synergy, synthesis, integration – somewhere out in the ether.

I’m dying to meet Her.

  1. Beautiful poetry. And unlike the nonsense rubbish that poses as poetry these days, it makes me feel something. I followed your blog before, but mine had moved and I am just getting around to setting it up.

      I am humbled. Thank you.

      Who were you in your past blog life? ; ) Have fun setting up the new one. Two great posts already!
