"Resolve"


My resolution coincides
With rampant will it now resides
There is no place beneath the stars
No wind to bend the deodars
I hold on steady to the course
That heart does utterly endorse
The mountaintop with snowy build
Continues on, a cup unfilled
An avalanche, at last, is waged
The crucible was finely guaged
Resolving all, the steel refined
I clasp the hilt, the runes are lined
To tell the tale of loss and gain
And, then, rescind the deepest pain
Tomorrow will be soon enough
The will un-trampled in the rough

"Colors"


A strength resides upon love's grace within eternal halls
No force of time or man can ever breach these sturdy walls
Upon the rampart's walk, impatience stirs, the passion calls
Across the land, the spell in winter's blight of guilt enthralls
But, slowly, now, enchanted land gives way to life and Spring
The crocus blooms, the squirrels romp, and birds begin to sing
The memories retain their force, the glistening returns
The sun upon the dew-filled land evaporates concerns
Despair and all its pitied ilk no longer hold them fast
Discoveries of life and love, the endless vistas vast
The land is well renewed as all the panic now subsides
Upon the mount of memories, the heart so boldly rides
From keep and through the gate, they canter through the broader world
To flowers thrown, and lances raised, the pennant is unfurled
Time has reinforced the colors of this endless love
The gifts are clear, the end is seen, the heart does rise above
