The Bigger Picture

The fish cannot tell me how to fly for I am the bird. The bee cannot tell me how to bloom for I am the flower. The scientist cannot tell me how to wave for I am the ocean. The mind cannot tell me how to love for I am the heart. Life cannot tell…

Lucid Dreams

When I cross the finish line, It’ll be clear that mother nature has run her course. Clairvoyance of the now, I can foresee. A vulnerable reality. For my meek heart only thinks in terms of accomplished disappointments. There’s not enough ointment to heal these wounds, Mind buried in a tomb, Beautiful soul, ticking boom! Blahs. I…
