I am the calm in emotional chaos

The reason in illogical thought

Insanity revolves around me

In this cycle where I like to be caught


I thrive in self destruction

In a whirlwind of ideas and fears

Masked in normality and function

Practiced and refined for years


A volcano with occasional eruption

Quickly taken back to control

Molten lava burning

Under the surface taking its toll


The rock quickly formed

To cap off the steam

Beautiful blackened landscape

Or so it would seem

Carefully maintained with information

Moving on with shifting plates,

Back and forth appearing natural

Secretly eroding layers grate


The wind picks up again

Appearing a gentle breeze

Hiding the swirling waters

Whirlpools far out at sea


Approaching shore with more power

Welcomed by earthly shifts

The volcano no longer dormant

Explodes as the whirlwind whips


The meeting of chaos familiar

Calm in the molten steam

Flowing like there will be no damage

Searing aftermath unseen

Let the charred remains crumble

Leaving behind a canvas of renewal

The scene left to be filled again

This time with spirit as fuel.



Let the song of my life lead me to harmony

Words written perfectly and a tune filled with depth

Taken from the notes on spirit wind playing

Sounds and rhythms resonating each soul

Leading the dance taking place in my heart

Swaying and flowing in energy connect

Take me and hold me in a gentle embrace

Move me to your music and show me the way

Answer my questions in verse

Reveal each crescendo and teach me to pause

Allow me to listen with grateful appreciation

To the song that plays just for me


Silence to Speak

Wondering why I can’t speak my words,

Is it fear of being ignored?

Maybe fear of being heard?

Stand clear of expectations

To avoid the disappoint

Some things come automatic

Bringing cognitive disjoint

Confused with thought and habit

Taking focus from the heart

Simply go back to the beginning,

Stepping from the start

Focus in on connection

Where the real originates

Silencing the noise

Allowing peace to resonate.
