Your spark ignited

Your spark ignited
a flame that smoulders inside
the fire consumes me

With all my mistakes

With all my mistakes
I find some consolation
I'm only human

In my solitude

In my solitude
I like to hear Ellington
travel down hallways

Preparing parties

Preparing parties
walking around big bonfires
in my dreams I burn

I left for one week

I left for one week
found the blossoms had fallen
green leaves have returned

That carrot won't work

That carrot won't work
on the end of your long stick
I'm not a donkey

I hear them at night

I hear them at night
my children making mischief
they must feel alive

I'm asking myself

I'm asking myself 
why fear opportunity
fear is not knowing

I'm moping at home

Confined in my home
surrounded by family
feeling all alone

Love the perspective

Love the perspective
one gains from climbing a tree
the world falls away

When they released her

When they released her
it looked like tentacles squeezed
sunlight from her flesh

One weekend each year

One weekend each year
the agricultural show
a ghost of it's self

Mr Magic's yard

Mr Magic's yard
holds dapper Dave and plastic
he's bought on Ebay

Hanging on the chain

Hanging on a chain
Australian canary
feeding their offspring

Does anyone hear

Does anyone hear
when the moon does not appear
a bird sings through night
