Tried for Days

I have tried for days

To put my thoughts

In wordy ways.

Yet, to finish

Seems impossible,

With days

Already full.

Pulled this way

To chase the green,

Torn that way

By demons unseen.

The paper, the pen

Just by my side,

But the words the thoughts

Have suddenly died.

Stress and life,

Bills and people,

Family, job

All leave me with strife.

To be clear again

In my ideas

Free to write

And escape my fears,

This is the current aim.

But I cannot get away

from life’s game.

 

So these words for now

Will have to do,

’cause right now

It’s all I have for you.

Burned The Bridges

We burned the bridges

And boats,

Left them in smoldering cinders

Upon the shore.

 

We can not return

To the time,

The place

The home we knew.

 

The river of time

That we crossed,

Flows on,

Unstoppable,

Raging.

 

We can not

Swim upstream,

Backwards in time.

We chose not to

Swim against progress.

 

Now we’ve come to a place,

Without spirit,

A Place unnatural, and new,

With no rules.

 

Can we survive?

Can we find harmony?

Or will we lose ourselves

In the machine.

Will we remember love.

A Sketch

dreams die with age

Do You Hear The Whales?

Listen carefully,

Do you hear them sing,

Beneath the sea?

Do you hear

The voices raised in song,

Echoing on the shore?

Do you hear nature,

Joining in chorus?

Their pleas for help,

As the song ascends to the heavens,

Ask yourself..,

Do you hear the whales?

The Holiday Season is Here

I know the holiday season is here, not because of christmas sale commercials, or the ridiculously early arrival of decorations, I know the holidays are coming because Sierra Nevada’s Celebration ale is on store shelves.

This wonderful beer by the “Sierra Nevada” brewing company, is perhaps my favorite beer. It is unfortunately only available during the holiday season, so it’s a long wait, but when I see it in the store my holidays begin. It is a hoppy beer, that to me, tastes like the smells of the holidays. I swear it tastes like the combination of holiday smells like your christmas tree or poinsettia plants. It is rich and hearty, and that taste is like christmas in a bottle. You get a smooth drink with a delightful after-taste, hearty and robust, with excellent flavors. This is just a humble man’s beer review, but I enjoyed writing it, so maybe I’ll review other beers, we’ll see. I hope your signs and symbols of a happy holiday season are here for you as well, and if you try this beer I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

An Ever Changing Writer I AM

I am a rain drop that has merged back within the ocean and in doing that I share the oceans powerful qualities.
