The Ocean

The Ocean

“Never underestimate the power of the ocean.” – Heidi Klum The Ocean Your salty, sweet lips kissed my neck – sending peaks and valleys down the center of my skin. And then you fade away leaving me standing rooted one with each grain of sand. But wait – you come back you run up to me and fall at my feet, kissing each toe before you rise up and kiss my hand with your sweet, salty lips. And then you fade away leaving me wondering when you will come back. And then with languid loyalty you do come back and seduce me with your warmth and allow me to enter you inch by inch until your wetness envelopes me. Once inside of you you kiss me again first on my neck again and then on my face – leaving a moist impression on my...
The Mountain

The Mountain

“It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.” – Edmund Hillary The Mountain The mountain softly sobs into the mouth of the liquid mirror, foaming ever so gently distorting the reflection of the trees. The aphoristic air whispers through your hair, making it stand on end as it brings you down to your knees. Adding these images to your personal picture show is something that you could not imagine in your dreams. The mountain’s head is topped with white wisps of wisdom, adding to its majestic stance among fields and streams. In its shadows you feel small. On its summit you feel tall. You softly sob into the mouth of the liquid mirror, smiling ever so gently – distorting your reflection of the...
One Dream

One Dream

“You have to dream before your dreams can come true.” –  A. P. J. Abdul Kalam One Dream One day I had a dream. I didn’t know that I would wake up more than ten years later and realize I was still dreaming. It is a lucid dream that only I could dream it would seem. I’m sure others tried to dream the same thing, but their dreams are just that – dreams. Mine is something more, something greater. It’s something that makes you feel butterflies and tingles. Each time I close my eyes my breath is taken away. Each time I open my eyes my breath is held hostage. Through the trees and into the mountains, or through the doors and into the tavern, it does not matter. It does not matter because you are there in each one of my dreams, each moment of lucidity. I only had one dream. And I believed if I could close my eyes hard enough, my dream could last longer than the star’s glow that we see each night before we...
Little Birds

Little Birds

“You’re off to great to great places. Today is your first day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!” – Dr. Seuss Little Birds Little birds, I love you. Your beautiful beaks are beyond description. They light up the room and melt the hearts of everyone in sight. Little birds, I love you. It’s time for you to spread your wings and leave the nest, to learn how the world works, to learn how the world exists outside of your nest. Little birds, I love you. You bring a smile to my heart every single day. When you spread your wings to fly, my body stuffed joy into hope into love into nostalgia into delight into promise into cheer into optimism into melancholic despondency. Little birds, I love you. I miss you already. I miss your innocent ignorance. When you leave the nest you’ll start to learn the rest – the rest of how the world works and how the world exists. You’ll teach that world something. You’ll fly circles around this world. Little birds, I love...
The Fall of the Whispers

The Fall of the Whispers

“In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.” – Albert Camus The Fall of the Whispers The whispers of a thousand lost souls can be found screaming through the breeze. The trees shudder from the secrets whispered in their leaves. The deepest darkest dirtiest dreams that anyone has ever had, ages the leaves and makes them sad. They fall to the ground in shame. Rotting and decaying on the moist lawn, the leaves glimmer at the break of dawn. The screams of a thousand lost souls whip and bite the whitened branches. The voices are frozen in the glistening glass. The mother laughs as she whistles drowning the whispers in a chilling...
