fools play

she follows insincerity
confuses illusions
haunting the lightened path
steps softly intruding
knowledge of the way
trees shy in warning
while clouds close the heavens
shielding stars from the plight
whispered entreatments
find eager landscapes
accepting the fallacy of truth
flee from the temptress
lurking in shadows
close a blind eye
to the burning candle
wicked in the night

    Whoever “she” is dear heart, she is a knowing soul and cunning too perhaps. But there is also the reality that she too might be seeking something she lacks and has yet to find it in herself. Your words always deeply move me on a very personal level, dear heart – I feel the pain of them or the caution in them, the haunting sadness in them. You express in such beautiful images what others feel but can find no words for. Haunting and achingly beautiful, dearest Butch. Love it and you…always.

  • well hello pretty lady……. this came to me while out on a beautiful walk through the woods today…. you above all others know how my mind can wander on its own…. i cherish your words and our wonderful friendship,,,,,,, love you…….b

    It are minds that go to strange places that bring up profound treasures.
    Einstein used to enter a zone which he labeled the ‘’Windows Of My Mind’’.
