Embraced by the greatness of blue I welcome you

to possess me like a creature borne

in the depths of the unknown, I belong if I knew

how and when I was part of the beauty you shown-

Take my fears for I know you and to fear I cannot

in the freedom you offer and being known

that your fury can break worlds apart

but your songs by the shore sooth my soul

and when done all exhausted and old

I will follow the beats of your heart-


“Ocean, n. A body of water occupying about two-thirds of a world made for man — who has no gills.”― Ambrose Bierce, The Unabridged Devil’s Dictionary

Dust to Dust


Dust to Dust


And I’ll be dust to dust bound

suppressed like a flash of light

quick but not too bright,

a distant memory turned to dreams

a vague recollection drowned

in the noise of your day-

So quick nothing turns to nothing

in a life full of extremes

that never last, never stay-

Particles of mixed sanity

that reality became,

a reality dust to dust bound

when forgotten lips

no longer speak my name-
