Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.


thick mud runs
where red should reign
upon the thrones of old
forgotten crowns
lie in silence
no hearing for the fold
empty gestures
cloud the chamber
usurping scraps of pride
hung in glory
noose of fire
drawn taught
before untied
’round the circle
hot lines of ash
seven times inquire
what of the third
bruised wing of hope
incant the healing word
welcome home the spirit
into the light of day
remembering the moment
that compels it back away

    … we all are not in the fux – but are of the flux … thinking with our eyes and forever awaiting ( THIS ) moment … but when one takes stock in this moment – one will start to feel hope growing …

    … my friend … I all wish HOPE and light … !


  • you are very wise… and very kind to make such thoughtful comments…. thank you so much….. love and light to you….b

    I see this as a very deep social commentation. I read this article in the paper today that showed visually the regions in the US that suffer the most casualities due to the Iraq war. I see unsurping scraps of pride being the loss of apt recognition for those who are sacrificed in someone elses agenda. Maybe I am wrong but I see this as a very sad poem about loss, I hope you are well my friend.
