The Candle

Composed 11/2/14
Description: The story about how I had no job one Sunday but I did the next.

I lit a candle
provided the light for the end of my tunnel

I lit it with hope
but no expectations
and it floated past seven suns to the heavens
where He dropped sunbeams
for me to follow


Drive By

Composed 11/14/14
Description: A little something written while driving home yesterday.

So many people huddled in their homes
Clicking on their lights
Heating up their dinner
Chatting with a friend
Living their stories

And they’re just houses passing by
And you’re just a car passing by

Sweater in Bed Weather

Composed 11/13/14
Description: Inspired by the latest cold snap. Something more light and fun and, dare I say, more Shel Silverstein than my usual style. Let me know what you think!

It’s sweater in bed weather
It’s wrap up your head weather
It’s sweater in bed and wrap up your head and toast til your red

It’s a blankets for clothes morning
It’s a shuffle your toes morning
It’s a blankets for clothes and shuffle your toes til the hot shower flows and right in you go

It’s an icicle hair walk
It’s a slippery stairs walk
It’s an icicle hair and slippery stairs for as long as you dare in the air you can’t bear til you get to your lair

It’s a crash through the door evening
It’s a fire and smores evening
It’s a crash through the door then fire and smores with hot chocolate poured til hot to the core and cuddle some more until we both snore

It’s sweater in bed

A Note from a Ghost

Composed 11/8/14
Description: A note I left behind.

Though I feel like I’d died in ripping agony
in your arms a thousand times
I like how I am still ghosts
on your walls
How my presence lurks
like candlelight casting shadows
in every empty space
So little else remains
I wonder
I hope?
My touch still comforts
Still haunts
