Sleepy Luna
SoZaka Aug 2018
I was a  waxing moon reflection lost at sea
a light too distant to keep you warm
you led me safely through a long dark storm
until  I awoke from my lucid dream

now, like a new moon amidst a mid summer scene
I lay awake with a past I can't' recall
grateful and rested
unsure if it was a dream at all
loss and gain life and death rebirth timeless

Equinox
SoZaka Mar 2018
may every hurt be healed
with loving intent, and positivity
in my heart hope springs eternal,
our equinox comes at this time of year

one deep breath from finding balance
and on to better days
we have all this air to breathe
yet, anxiously we hold our breath
unwilling to believe

Campfire stories
SoZaka Apr 2018
you, a western film
with the lights down low
beautiful to look at
while moving slow

come listen in,
and lean back
a pillow for the soul
in a campfire story

it was all I could do but to ride to town with no place to be
hoping this street would lead
through a long winter night

seasons changed,
but love remained long within
to tell a story
time and again
of an eternal flame

so hold me close,
and your skin won't feel the snow
no matter how much skin might show
that's how the best
campfire stories go
true love passion warmth trials and tribulations and lasting memories

kiwi tree
SoZaka Apr 2018
love me because i'm different
rough on the outside yet sweet underneath
peel back my layers, enjoy fruits of discovery
  learn with me, grow with me
little kiwi tree
If everybody's a peach she's a different kind of fruit

Good Voodoo
SoZaka Mar 2018
color coded for your convenience
every known shade of
red blood red
bobble head babies with serpent tongues
buyer beware they'll make you come undone

paper hearts with the pins pushed in
it hurts like hell without respite
you've got that good voodoo that
one can't just pray away
and I got a bad feeling
it's going to stay that way

Bird's eye
SoZaka Sep 2018
a dove in mid flight
    good ideas come to light
     as my head rests on the pillow
in the depths of a dream

a clear eyed mind
a window to look within
newly grown wings
and so better
a view from above
better to be aware of the world around you. Rather than lost in thought

Little Lion & Baby Goat
SoZaka Mar 2018
baby goat
tiptoes on a teeter totter
finding balance is a heavy burden
keeping her on her own

little lion
sleeps soundly at a Sunday sermon
waking early is quite a chore
so he dreams his life away

she bounds past as his service lets out
light as a feather and free of doubt

he awakens to find her sleeping
and wonders what she could be dreaming about

Lilypad Tiara
SoZaka Apr 2018
Oh, to feel like the only frog
in a land of princes
only miserable crickets and silence for company
few can understand true love unless, they live a life without hope of it's dawn
  
a visitor who lost her way,
has come across my secluded pond
a princess draped in the beautiful moonlit glow
unaware of her jeweled crown's beauty
she, who has made a prince out of me

Lioness
SoZaka Feb 2018
hail the queen
of the royal family's pride
she knows her king
and where his enemies hide
if I am a lion, she is a lioness
nurturing me with gentle fearlessness
  love guides my voice,
 humility it's tone
in proclaiming the "king of the land"
is not the one on the throne
 of this, I confess,
I bow to her majesty
the lioness"
444 · Apr 2018
Demeter
SoZaka Apr 2018
an angel to save me
from the wrong paths of life
you are always loved with me
through the windowless alleys
of heartbreak and strife
a fertile soul
with the smallest need sprouting within
grown to harvest
the fruit we bear together

Better than yesterday
SoZaka Jun 2018
one more smile
sweep some dust from the floor
make it shine,
more than it did before
tune the radio dial,
let the melodies flow

show someone love,
with a kiss on the cheek
make the right decision,
weigh it with care
turn the right direction,
and we all get there

just be a little better than yesterday
and the world will be too
just one little bit better than the day before day after day and the world can't help but follow suit

Zanzibar archapelago
SoZaka Apr 2018
Smokey, hazy
feathers and fur
fine wine
in a cheap cafe
all the spells love knows
cast at once
I danced out to sea in crystal and gold
and found treasures beyond compare
Self actualization and realization change and transformation

Eternal springs
SoZaka Oct 2018
A girl named Hope, was in a state of despair from a glance in the mirror
at the sight of her hair.
She tumbled down the well
For all her days she fell,
Until
she landed eventually.
It's supposed to be dark its Halloween

telepathy
SoZaka Mar 2018
We make our own reality
without a word
of vocabulary
tell me a story
write it in the stars

sing my blessings
shout my praises
tell me that you love me
by spelling out my name
in your mind
and in mine.

tell me our voice comes from above
its all better for the wiser,
who knows who to love
who to love

and that's you
and that's me
and that's you
and that's
telepathy
another realm of love

Portfolio
SoZaka May 2018
I've got you in my portfolio
typed up ready to show
I put my soul into my portfolio
printed perfected and ready to go
if you have a query of which I may be weary
then let's jump to the middle of the oreo
and read the love letter
front and center of my portfolio

Slow curve
SoZaka Aug 2018
my adrenaline is running
because nobody is driving
a slow curve coming masked behind  the clouds

my enemies are closing
no matter how quickly my mind spins
my wounds left breathing
are leaving me out of air

on a slow day
with mindful
breath

the outer ring
SoZaka Aug 2018
A life lived in a dream
if ever a heavenly sight could bring me to stir
asleep on a plume of Neptune
dimensions away from here

of three eyes of which I see
not one sees  through my confusion
too dense a haze surrounds me
to spot the closest star
much less the farthest one away

Artificiality
SoZaka Mar 2018
robots need wires and some ingenuity
lovers need desire and some promiscuity
can you feel the connection in our hearts
like a current it flows electrically
bringing me alive from the depths of artificiality
so I may know life
before it is a dream once again

Cee Cee
SoZaka Mar 2018
the hardest days
by defenition
do not involve love and affection
yet every time I see you
Cee Cee
my sun sets in a different direction
if it sets at all

wide eyed like a child all your light shines through and wakes me from a never ending dream

one day Cee Cee you will know
I am a part of you and
you are a part of me too

Easy answers
SoZaka Apr 2018
place these lessons
on a silver spoon
made simple to swallow,
though hard to learn
give a gift,
that blossoms forever
a real chance,
at a new start
this love is a test,
I'm taking with an open mind
yet easy answers,
prove hard to find
Relationships love hardship hope fate soulmate

Nebula
SoZaka Apr 2018
breath in lightly without a sound
wait for the colors to show
before you let your lungs release
enjoy the view of a nebula in all its glory
beauty before death
thoughts on life's final moments and being one with the universe

Tomato tree
SoZaka Jun 2018
fire in my stars
water in my words
a book written from wisdom
reads the sky belongs to birds
flung from a volcano
and cast into a tornado
a lonely little tomato
fallen from a tomato tree
growth letting go possibilities and implausibilities I know its a tomato plant...

gold glass window
SoZaka Mar 2018
follow the moon straight out of sight
I went down the rabbit hole in the deadest dark of night

you aren't alone my friend in thinking you would find your flower deep down in the hollow

I went through the gold glass window at the bottom of the smokey bottle
I woke up in the grass with the glass and the sun in my eye
looking up through a gold glass window
at the beautiful sky

Flying Fox
SoZaka Feb 2018
Rubies, diamonds, and other precious stones
are the only things left in my head
my riches are thoughts left unsaid
fear is only a penny that buys me time
my imagination spends a fortune
for my every dime
I have lived as a simple bird who walks
but on this day,
I am a flying fox

Theta
SoZaka Apr 2018
on a wave
time will tell
roller coaster under the ocean

good people don't misbehave
i'm in my mind
on a
theta wave

take the rope and shake it once
maybe you'll see my point of view
then you will be
on a theta wave too
synchronicity alignment positivity entrainment hope mystical metaphysical connection wave mindfulness

walk in a wildfire
SoZaka Aug 2018
who could sleep on a night like this?
how could you not stay awake?
whilst I wander amidst these wildfires
you started by mistake
anger rage discontent

Sailors of a starless sea
SoZaka Jun 2018
we said goodbye
the moment we were born
the miracle of life
and all we could do was cry

the moon and its reflection
was all we ever knew
we were sailors of a starless sea
adrift in the abyss

but when the sun finally arose
I saw you on the shore
now we are sailors of a starless sea
no more
this is about union understanding and hope

White spider
SoZaka Apr 2018
frosty winds claim few survivors
burned feet on a porcelain beach
your poison poured into my cup
pale creamy swirl to help me sleep
walked into the web of a spider
dreamy eyes every time I see her
dress me in silk I've lost my fight
since your white
spider
bite
I like it visually as a spiders abdomen.  At it's core it is about surrender.

cookies for lunch
SoZaka Mar 2018
Mom I love you but you're making things tough
the other boys at school are kinda treating me rough
they see me rollin like a ball of dough
running for the hills, hungry and slow

mom I know you're trying now
and you think its cool, somehow

but i'm slowly dyin and thinking of quittin school
I've never had so many friends
I didn't need

you're so sugar sweet
its making me bleed

i've got a wealth of problems bundled in my lap
two snicker doodles my  gingersnap
my life is in peril and i'm in a crunch
cause I'm the kid with cookies for lunch
allegory for coming of age and trying to make friends when being a weird kid is hard enough and a mothers love of course

Sour Emerald
SoZaka Mar 2018
I was born deep underground
the only way out was through
whispers of sweet nothings helped keep me steady and true
like a sour emerald my past has now grown into my future
leaving me rich with wisdom
known by so precious few
Life lessons are gems to cherish no matter how difficult
287 · May 2018
Sparrow hearts
SoZaka May 2018
clear skies
one sparrow flying high in the stratosphere
   the sound barrier breaks
faint as a crystal bell
shattering truths of what I believed was possible

joyous, the sound of a broken heart beating once again
like a birdsong in the distance
282 · Mar 2018
Through Streams
SoZaka Mar 2018
pushed upon my back
helpless as a beetle off his feet
  swept away by forces too powerful to resist

through streams
formed rivers
  carved canyons
an eternity I've struggled to breathe

difficult is this gift that keeps me from the crows
though lovely to be alive to feel the strain

through streams
of consciousness
which formed rivers
and carved canyons
 I grew courage and sailed briskly through

Glass Blue
SoZaka Mar 2018
you have eyes like mine
I have eyes like you

a horizontal flow of emotional perfection
shining
glass blue

I can see my soul and I know you can see yours too
so I won't blink unless you do

if only we could break this clear wall through
that leaves us feeling
so glass blue
276 · Apr 2018
Celcius
SoZaka Apr 2018
a translator for humanity
gives a powerful speech
condolences to innocents left behind
as above the clouds
so below the stars
temperatures rising
towards a future on Mars

an advocate for change
preaches a lesson on the past
sympathies to those who stay to the last
as within a dream
so without a vision
temperatures falling
towards a perilous decision
Global warming and the sad inevitability of Earths resources running dry
267 · May 2018
Infinity
SoZaka May 2018
Plug me into the wall
life is better with the current running up my spine
instead of down the hall
I am what I am because I believe in you
the love you give is the love I send
without it I am powerless
so never let it end

Chinatown
SoZaka May 2018
fine flavors
calamari and spice
tea laced with poppy petals
noodles mixed with rice

  wisdom  
generations gone
in a tiny fortune cookie

and a mint if you're lucky

The Last Day Of December
SoZaka Mar 2018
I barely hope to convey this feeling
perhaps it is
floating through a starfield free wheeling
or
a dwarf who hit his head on the ceiling
for
every memory i've saved for safe keeping
a flower blossom remained sleeping
leaving nothing left of yesterday's forest save willows weeping and wailing
waiting for the hourglass to slow

though as far as I remember
on the last day of December
everything was for the better
in an infinite number of ways
by living a life
full of New Years days
253 · Mar 2018
Minnows
SoZaka Mar 2018
down in the depths
grimly it glows
amidst weeping willows
and a pond of minnows
love dimmed by sorrow and time apart

eternally it glows
amidst weeping willows
and time lost in thought
a dream I've yet to catch
amongst all the
minnows I've caught
.

Salted candies
SoZaka Apr 2018
squirmy showers, stinky flowers
a runny nose in the midday heat
all the curses that I could cast
are salted candies on my lips
spit them out and start anew
with a happy pill free of residue
not another tear shall be shed for you
some times life leaves a bad taste in your mouth but it is up to you to find the joys and taste the "sweet life"

Toy rabbit
SoZaka Apr 2018
string for a tail
I'm a runner
and I am frail
spring for my
heart
I am bound
to come apart
and as I let go
the dogs run to hunt me down
like
paper wings on a
killer whale
a strange life since I jumped from the ocean
out of my bramble patch
and into motion
Letting go, wisdom going forward acceptance love determination resolve fearlessness

Back on track
SoZaka Apr 2018
A stationary set for my 21st birthday
going the right way since I turned wrong
one other lover than the one I've got
my head and my heart have fought
like this before

a mistake to hit the gas off the cliff with a
soul made of glass
I fell out of my mind and right back in
no way to stop from going your direction
fly butterfly on a railroad cloud
through a one way sky
my train is on to your station
in just a moments time
addiction,  self love following your intuition and guidance self development growth transformation

Shade Blossoms
SoZaka Apr 2018
we grow like patience and wisdom
waiting for the rain to lend us sway
every petal greedy for its solar savior
we know we are getting our share
on back order a late blooming pair.
shade blossoms
we shall  cast shade everywhere
when the clouds finally part,
and our time has come
these two blossoms
will bloom as one
unity

Candle in the lantern
SoZaka Apr 2018
sail me to the ocean
******* a caramel covered kiss
we love the imagination fueled by our higher selves
when we live in a state of bliss
but
to sail this lantern down the river
first put a little fire inside
to light it's way
fantastic voyage

Vulture
SoZaka Apr 2018
through a thunder laden desert I walk without rain
as hands of a clock I circle
without gain
a cheetah on a greyhound day
through a dust drenched mirage
  a thirst kept dry
a vulture in the early night sky

Fearless

sounds shake you at night

a sixth sense can help you gain the sight
the wisdom of fear hides a day shining bright

Life in coral

Zen
SoZaka Jun 2018
Zen
no sign of existence
no shadows
nor bones
footsteps in dust
silent wind
yet it howls

dusk after dusk
timeless as
a grandfather clock

this moment
all is now as is now

Cold hill valley
SoZaka Apr 2018
metal burns skin as blood boils inside
air from lungs glazing the eyes
a dangerous perilous point of view
from a mountaintop into a valley of lies

clock in the darkness reading what cannot be read
a taste of the tongue from what cannot be said
to shiver and shake on a cold hill
on the coldest day of all
better than ever should you fall
anger depression rage hopelessness bipolar frustration hope

A Scarecrow's wings
SoZaka Apr 2018
this wind a feather
brushing against my face
  land on the horizon
for a life anchored at sea
my seamstress, the crow
who fears only yesterday
waits so patiently for my wings to grow
as cornfields sway
in a harvest moon's glow
so gently
Love waiting fate soulmates

Mirror light
SoZaka Apr 2018
I am the dominant factor in my life
turning the pages of a book only I will read
my yesterdays are unlike any of your days
but the same could be said of yours in many ways
we are the mirror that lies down the hall
that shines light
on one and all
Identitny of others through continued identity of self
