Escaping Our Forecast

Faint rain paints a scene like an old movie screen. I stare in half expecting the lights to dim. So I sit, and watch scenes play out on a whim. I've been the star in shows played out times ago.... Continue Reading →

Own the Fall.

Why do you teeter between weakness and strength? Your worth is not defined by another's grace. The view on the way could feature a dream state, but the wake of the wind reveals risk of day. Never wait for the cliffs... Continue Reading →

Reality in Routine, but Pause for Sanity

Rock your favorite chair to the same place it was, while blades rotate in circular rhythm above. Movies in queue repeat lines you recognize, comfort in knowing the end is realized.
