Strands

this restless mind of man meanders
spinning silken strand striations
beyond the flesh and bone had formed
and in this web of situations
is captured lust and love and hate
contained in unsaid conversations
in lost desires uncommunicated
for mortal souls have reservations
and cannot hold all threads in hand
whether conscious or unplanned.

The End

these are the last seasons
against the red skies the trees pray
not for new spring or reasons
that would these endings sway

these are the setting days
and soon a night will fall to drain
the final sunlight’s rays
in shadow’d pools their last refrain

this is the coldest breath
expended full never to return
the world has welcomed death
and in forgotten ashes burns.
