The Waters Edge

By the Waters Edge

I sit at the waters edge
A soft warm breeze at my face

The water that runs through my fingers
the warm breeze on my face
will never pass this way again

The days and years have gone by
as swiftly as this memory

I can remember that warm breeze
The water that ran through my fingers

It can be repeated but never be the same
as I experienced that one day

So cherish each moment every day because
It will be only memories of the days that passed
Like the day at the waters edge

Bitter Waters

You will see me someday, the open wound deep inside Seeing only the truth, despairing I hide The growing bitter bed, you will see and obey Together, apart, we wed, sever the day Like a raw raisin pit, I won’t

Asia At The Edge

Asia At The Edge short poem

I wished a solitary temptation, to write off karma and become responsible for the spattered blood. You were generating hatred, Asia, in the land of Buddha. I can hear the glaciers receding. Answerable to belonging, the change of generations, makes
