Love and Life

And so it began – the chaotic void of all space and time stirred,
and contracted, and breathed in explosive thought.
In a pop and a crack and a bang there was love, and love lived
in ignorant bliss. Space and time sat around love,
watched it grow, and had it do great things for them.

Over time, love spread across space and time to the point of infinity,
of near-motionlessness, and it was at this point that love grew lonely.
Time and space felt this longing for awareness and understanding,
and knew what love needed. Love needed life.
Love needed life to be loved.

Time and space had love create life,
and with sweet satisfaction, it gave birth
to the moons, the planets, and the stars.
The elements of life stirred and swirled in a universe of color,
and love no longer knew what it meant to be lonely.

Defining Traits

Defining Traits help you                                             Feel better than how you really look,
desire something that isn’t useful,                                  so you can see what’s good in life.

Defining Traits limit creativity,                                           But show everyone what’s real,
and describe everything that is tangible,                                        so you know what is not.

Something isn’t everything but                                               You don’t have to know that-
Everything is something with                                   extra smidgens of detail that are called

Defining Traits.                                                                                            Defining Traits.

Understand?                                                                                                                    See?

Think about it.

Sorry, we’re Closed

Sorry, we’re closed
our voice is heard, angry, closed.
We’re closed to opportunity, running
freely on a track.
Why are you so upset?
Nothing changes standing on your head.
You might as well increase your dexterity
before we open up again.
Think about the better days,
peaceful, lightly windy, dedicated.
Until then sorry, we’re closed.

Trees in the Wind

Even the tallest trees
rustle freely in the wind.

Even when the wind dies down,
leaves vibrate memories.

Even when it sounds so peaceful,
silent conversations exist.

Keep Dreaming

All you need is a dream
to tell you where the world will be one day.

It’s in your eyes.
It’s in the rhythm you followed as a kid.

Be a kid again, and do what you want to do.

Midnight Poem for the Moon

On a warm spring night, up high on the hill,
you can see a great night, filled with stars so bright.
On those nights, another star fills the void.
The moon… the full and true.
The wax and wane shows more than you can imagine,
a feeling, an emotion, a thought and a dream.
Every change it brings a new idea to life.
The moon… the full and true.

Real motivation comes from the desire to do something
for people you care about, and for yourself.
Find a reason to pursue life,
and you will be motivated by it.
