On The Go- Childhood

So we taunt from our fortress free,

The aging sand beneath our feet.

Let’s sing our song of youthful praise,

The sun long spent upon short days.

For twilight’s color will nare sculpt here,

With hands of age and rest sincere.

We are the children of ignorant bliss,

Traveling down life’s path never missed.

-M. E. InkOwl

come away with me

come away with me,

across this sea of green

where we can be ourselves,

surrendering to our love

time will lose its bite,

and skin its wrinkles

here among the bird song and leaves,

we will dance as radiant sunlight

always in this paradise will we sing,

our voices ever ululating with joy

across this sea of green,

come away with me

On The Go- Reborn

Gall is what you left upon my hands,

Burning with green delight.

Your bitterness burned into my very soul,

Searing to my bones.

You wished me dead, burnt to dust.

But you never truly understood who I was.

Like Ra,

Bennu,

Osiris,

I rose.

A new creature of fire and light.

Your gall and bitterness have no meaning,

Next to the furnace that is my soul.

With wings spread wide,

I brush off your poisoned embrace.

As dust in the wind your power crumbles,

And a rising Phoenix burns bright purifying my soul from within.

-M. E. InkOwl

Oh, Lavendar

Pick me once at eventide,

And breathe in this bewitching fragrance.

Rest, I whisper upon a blanket of down,

As your hands trace a passing cloud.

Time will stop just wait and listen,

You see the bee industrious now hold its wing.

I am your bliss rain splashing with sound,

You closer your eyes and sink to the ground .

Deepest Lavender you are the Queen of both herb and man,

Tarry with us through these forever moments.

-M. E. InkOwl

Summer Rain

Splash upon sun-warmed skin,

As wind rushes out the calm.

Sweet refreshment drifts down,

As fresh sheets upon a line.

Rumble over this plot of land,

Parched as bone and sagebrush.

Drink life from the heavens,

As roots sing deep beneath ground.

-M.E. InkOwl

Among the Reeds

”Twas upon this road I first found you,

In silks woven from waters so blue.

You sang within the reeds so green,

And bent as one to be unseen.

A melody so haunting yet so sweet,

You laughed at my stumbling feet.

I begged you come with me to stay,

Forever with me that very day.

But with a cry your spread your wings,

And vanished into all living things.

Oh nature, my love,

Come back to me.

-M. E. InkOwl

Grounding

Plant the corners of your feet down deep,

As you thrust roots of life underground.

Reach toward the heavens above,

Veiled within clouds of brightest azure.

Twist your frame and bend that trunk,

Until the scales of distraction fall from your eyes.

Behold my world,

Full of what you never saw.

Now drink in this life,

And become one.

-M. E. InkOwl

Realm of Mine

Come hither and enter this realm of mine,

Where no one grows past their prime.

Seek ye peace divine,

Upon this earth so far behind.

Touch my hand and trace a line,

From deepest regret to treasure sublime.

Let’s cross this bridge of tree and rhyme,

And forget the bonds of time.

Lift up thine head and brow so fine,

And walk a way from this mortal climb.

‘Tis eternity you seek so saccharine,

Then come and enter this realm of mine.

-M.E. InkOwl
