dreams drumbeats heartbeats


As my life streams through evenings,
events, and ever more adventures,
I often seek ease, peace, and the “chilling out”
of my youth, so I defrost poetry.

Life, the full 360, runs through
the intersection of memories, presence,
and hope, and moves to a soundtrack of
dreams, drumbeats, and heartbeats.

I breathe heavy, race, trace
blazing words and phrases
that try to make sense
of my life and my surroundings.

I look around, take stock, and
see the future in seeds that I toss now
and I am genuinely amazed
at the pace, the path, and the runner.
