A Knowing

the blush of autumn
now long gone, a quiet grace
takes its turn in time –
through creaky bones, a knowing –
like spring vines set to run wild

on bits of paper mingle

Beliefs & Strange

a matter of faith –
came to trust subtle nudges,
though mystifying

this thing that guides me, at times
so hands on, captivating

The Noise

poking through the noise
an enchanting melody
soothing hectic mind

deep in each note, a life’s tale
playing from the soul, a gem
