no matter how hard you try,

the heart clings to a soul once touched,

deliberately refusing to release.



no matter how hard the eyes

draw the mind to a handsome face,

the soul turns its back on a new beginning.


Topanga Canyon, CA.


Most of the time,

the brain admonishes the heart,

hunting for the absent logic

for a Spring which continues to lay fallow.



people mistake forgiveness as

weakness and a battered organ

to be beyond reach, a hapless appendage.


Malibu, CA.


But rarely,

Is it understood that if the

wave refused to return when the

sand sent it away, then we would lack a seashore.
