winterice sculpts the sunrise,filters down to still the day;silver mists echo
ResidueShe wilts in the wind,but laughter still sounds from aleftover shadow.
Aurora Borealisstars streak the canvasof goddesses witheclectic brilliance

Broken BoyMy broken boywith the button eyes and puppet strings -I clasp you to my heartbeat.
CynicismCrassly creative caricaturesof crisp contradictionsclutter my cognition.
Rebirthsunscape your stale asheswe will fall to rise anewyour phoenix glimmers sanguine

Bashful SkiesThere will be nights you stay awaketo see, to count, to make wishes onthe stars...and they won't be there.The city lights will be too bright,the moon will take center stage for a tragic soliloquy,storm clouds will be thick and angry at you for not paying attention. They will get in your way.There will be mornings you get up earlyto see, to paint, to be inspired bythe sunrise...and he will disappoint youby wearing faded colors that wash him out,by being so late you have to go to work with unwashed hair and yesterday's wrinkled blouse,by deciding to wear no colors at allbut shrouding himself in last night's storm clouds instead.At these times, take a deep breath,think about all those moments you've had it rough,and remember this:even the sky wakes up feeling ugly...but the sky still tries to put its best foot forwardwhen the time comes.
