Dream

Were you ever in my arms? or was it all a dream? did I ever taste your lips? life's not the way it seems. Was it all a vast charade? the longing and the wooing? was love ever in the picture, did we know what we were doing? You were young and vibrant, I was taken by your charms; lost in dreams of lov...

Never.

I will never sow you seeds of discontent, my time with you is precious and well spent; I will never think to ever put you down, you're much too enjoyable, to be around. You are too dear and lovely for my scorn, it's for our relationship that I was born; we fell in love the day we met, and still are,...

Nostalgia.

What do I know of winter? I've become a desert rat; I've but the snows of memory, of crafted, wool-filled hats. I remember Ethan Allen, maple syrup in the spring; white that covered mountains, the cold that was a sting. The crystal lace of frost, that decorated glass; the threat of ice, everywhere, ...

Winter

The winds blow, the rain falls, as Nature sings her song; the trees bend, the air, it howls, the daylight dies, the nights grow long. December rules the season, the cold approaches...fast; we hibernate to still the time, we know it cannot last. A new year lies awaiting, the world turns unperturbed; ...
