Good Morning Ocean

Wind tousles dune grasshaiku
Tourists take sunrise selfies

Pacing gulls forageĀ

When winter days feel empty
Ahead of spring’s warm thrill

It gets me through the worst of time
To think she loves me still

But that’s just wishful thinking
Straight Bourbon with a pill
When coming down to realize
It’s not worth feeling ill


While I Breathe…

While I breathe, I hope
Love will lead to peace

Home within my heart will bloom
From buried seeds of grief

While I breathe, I hope
As I live, I seek

Solace past forgiveness
Strength when feeling weak

With every exhalation
To full capacity
There’s a spirit one perceives
Beyond each sense and dream
