Living in love is better

StoryCorps (StoryCorps): Never Say Goodbye: A Love And Life Kept Vivid

When a guy is happily married, no matter what happens….there’s a shelter when you get home.”


Life is too short
To live in sadness
Living in love is better

Every day the simple things
Go unrecognized as gifts
They are

Every smile and caring comment
Rests upon the ground of a relationship
Like snow

Until it piles high and gives
A brilliant color to the world
And all that lies below

The ground we cover
Makes the landscape brilliant
Then brings forth new growth
In the Spring

Lost on a hillside?

Anise and asphalt
At the county line marshes
Smells of life passing

Is it possible
For a dragonfly to be
Lost on a hillside? (Sunday at Taylor Mountain)

Standing higher than the cross
Higher than the houses of the rich and powerful
Standing in the wind, unblocked since it came off the vast ocean
Alone, looking out at the plain of my existence
Standing where the gliding vultures ride the winds to the crest
Alone, no longer waiting for a miracle
Standing by myself

Sun glare through the mist
Foggy mornings in the Fall
Fosters noble rot?

Living on the edge
Of pain like a trench too deep
Not falling but close
