#OctPoWriMo: Oct 24 – 31

He asked me what I would say to God if I could have any question answered,
And I said that I would have little to say.
If I had to go on living after the question I would endure the rest of a life substandard.

There we were still existing in a pause between breaths that attempted to move life forward. Our mouths were wide with smiles and our eyes frozen never seeing the day we grew apart.

I am one part of the whole of the entire universe, And I gaze up into myself and watch myself gaze back at me.

#OctPoWriMo: Oct 29-31

You tell me that where you’re from  
a pitcher full of this on a porch  
was all anyone needed. 
It was a link to the past,  
a connection to the future,  
and it quenched  
wandering mid-day thoughts.

And then it happened without warning. 
Many of those same kids  
now in high school or off to college 
don’t come by your house anymore. 
They no longer call on the phone.

Off-tangent narratives
glide past sounds from our television.
As you sit down and hold my hand
you unravel decades of history.

Another friend has died today. 
You make the trek to show support  
and say your last goodbyes. 
I never see you cry. 
You know that they are safe  
in a place without pain or suffering.

#OctPoWriMo: Oct 19th-21st

There’s a secret sea of green  
flooding a room in your home. 
Where leaves sprout and stretch  
their limbs in every direction.
