His mind and body were discovered
During her ongoing extensive search
For objects that might at some point
Disastrously impact with her planet

Give me a moment
Surely there must be
Some deeply vibrant
Analogy here somewhere

RELATIVELY SPEAKING

How True Love Works

HOW TRUE LOVE WORKS

As I send you now a piece of my heart
Sit a moment in this stillness to know
We are all but a part of a greater Heart
Whatever we give away will soon regrow

Flesh and bone may decay
Her words, all the thoughts
All the feelings they evoke
Shall remain to nourish us

REAL DREAMS

We call it this
We call it that
Until we are done
With names

God rest their souls,” say I.

Shoulder to shoulder
Side by side
Joy and sadness
Come and go with the tide

THE TRUE DESTINATION

Nowhere to go
No need to go anywhere
Sit where you are
Simply follow your heart
