The Insanely Precious, Ordinary Moments of a Life

Monday, April 21, 2014


Who are you in the dark-
where no one can see the days that brought you to this moment
or the moments enshrined in the quiet inner room of your heart
that once created a sea change.

Who are you when the quiet is broken only by the rhythmic breath of your sleeping child
and you must face how stupid it is to have believed your ego, that trickster
that anything matters but an open heart.

In the darkness you make a promise;
Cherish those that are dear
and let the others believe what they want.

The fear that keeps you awake deep into the night
is a lie.
In the darkness you resolve
to let it all fall
to save what burns in you.
