Breeze shatters daydream

Breath of reality strikes

Contemplation dies

Hermit,

content with self

in spiritual solitude.

Philosopher of the soul,

with God.

I perceive a life

denied me by circumstance

my reality

Father’s Day for me

A coffin, long years buried

Three wonderful sons

I write these words not because I want to

because I must

they may be only simple words without reason or rhythm

however, they are mine

each letter written is a footstep on my journey elsewhere

each sentence a stride

I have been sitting too long in the company of my solitary black dog

it has demanding needs

today I lifted my vision, I saw beyond my restrictive, inner thoughts

abandoned all doubt

I notice it was bright and sunny; that there was not a cloud in the sky

it was a good day to walk

My front door instinctively slams shut whenever I pass; it is its nature

however, today I’ve wedged it open

I let in the noise and havoc of the world, and I wrote a note saying

my black dog has run away

do not return

Once again, I am on a walk-about within my head and I have just noticed through the insightful abyss a glimmer of light flexing in the far distance, this light that marks the path towards my eventual destination and the long awaited exit from within, I will travel with respect and take the time necessary to contemplate all I discover.
