My unweeded Edges

Your surface is spilling over
My unweeded edges,
Caressing the curves
Of my flustered mind
Pulling me into,
Murky dark places
I cannot see
for all the glittery
Sunshine.
And I stagger and fall.
I fight your darkness
As all the glitter slips away.
But it is then I realize
That you are just a river
And I am the one
Looking into you.

The Silenced Mind

So fast, something
Safe can become
A prison.
Walls being too familiar,
Keeping out the world
While tenderly preserving
A monastic sanctity.
When did it all
Become such a threat?
Peace being lost
In the claiming of
Freedom…
So wounded
We wait
We tremble
While wars are being
Fought
Inside the caves
Of the silenced Mind.
