OVERVIEW

JUST BY CHANCE

eventide appeared   its calmness balanced between back and forth waiting for a command a higher power stars and moon and maybe the sun   to exact the perfect template a framework of directions unspoken unrehearsed a play performed on the world stage unimpeded mostly unnoticed until it begins to move   as it always … More JUST BY CHANCE

GREATER THAN ME

It was a blue without end   an opening greater than the sky a place I touched   sand and rocks I walked on   its where I could run when running away   to hide in plain sight while all other sounds were blocked out except the waves   I was a spot on … More GREATER THAN ME
