You can endure all of life's pain and sorrow
With love, being strong, is easy

Candle Lite Aroma
ymmiJ Mar 2019
A quiet moment receiving this gift
lighting a rose scented candle in remembrance
the breeze that fanned the tiny flame
The warmth let me know you are still here
still warm from that short flickered fire of tears

tumbleweeds tumble
down abandoned city streets
dust their companion

pluff mud in my nails
shrimp shells, crab claws, in the pail

Blood Moon River
ymmiJ Mar 2019
I saw that blood in the sky
Swollen burning after party eye
Veins of crimson wells ran dry
Swelling waters of a red tide
Coursing thru my fragile mind

plunged head over heels
down your gently sloped nature
for you i did fall

Flirting seductively sultry thru the night

Reflections On Paper
ymmiJ Mar 2019
These words I write are
reflections on paper

Reflections of loss
Reflections of gain

No matter the cost
No matter the pain

These words I write are
reflections of life

Reflections of fear
Reflections of you

No matter how dear
no matter your view

These words I write will
reflect my life on paper and
my life lived for you

My Path

this path behind me
imperfect by nature
as the aging man
who traversed it

Innocent times,
winds threaded with wild childhood
dreaming on clouds passing by

I surrender to  your emerald gaze

Disconnect The Disconnected
ymmiJ Apr 2019
ignorance is bliss
hard to miss baskets of gold
sprinkled around you
your blindness, tunnel vision
swiping right, as flowers die
Just observing families at lunch, each on their own little world, sad

Anchor Tanka

rudderless ship so to speak

calm waters
quietly whispered
dreadful silence

Did You Borrow That?
ymmiJ Oct 2019
Truth doesn't become so because you think it is so.....
...... just as it does not become so because your friend said it be so.
different for me but it is designed to make you think on what you think it true. What is really true and how do you know it's your truth?

Soul Searching
ymmiJ Mar 2019
A cold dark stroll under
a wild aurora glow
stopping cliffside as
the whales mighty
fountains flow bursting
the surface in a
high tech Vegas show
Climbing the ridge to spy
a migrant herd below
All the while stealthly
Stalking my very own soul
