"The leaf and twig"


The leaf holds softly to the twig it needs for life's support
The wind and rain and elements are part of its consort
Tentative connection held to that which gives it life
The poet warrior ponders this as wonder sings his fife
The leaf will pass and twig remain as seasons come and go
But, once again, the leaf returns, embracing season's flow
He sits, unmoving, through a time to ponder just a leaf
All of life moves past him, a peripheral motif
'Tis this necessity that drew him from his love and heart
To understand the universe in whole, not just a fraction's part
The leaf tied to the twig is as his life is tied to hers
Only in her presence, in her heart, his essence stirs

"Echoes"

The echoes from an empty heart reflect much more than pain
The warmth, the smile, the twinkling eye, the echoes all remain
A trumpet down the corridors of all eternity
That herald to a time when life is met triumphantly
The resonations craft the heart to that which will withstands
The whirlwind whimsies of a world, much more the heart demands
Of echoes of a future meant for grasping more than frill
To stumble on a gem, indeed, reflections overfill

"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
