Precipice

Standard

Standing on the precipice
I don’t look down
I raise my eyes
Into the oceans
Of the skies
The stars that fly
The clouds that stalk
Within its waves
I walk across the precipice
Of days
I swim in air
I cannot drown
Nor fall
In this rich buoyancy
Enthrals I reach
The other side
I never died
I swum I flew
Simply put
I grew…

Beyond the Veil

Standard

See through
Your veil
If you avow
To seek beyond
What you can see
To feel what you
Have never felt
Before those dreams
You never had
To find what you
Do love so much
It hurts to be alive
This ecstasy of diving
Into ocean streams
Of living widely open
Means to go beyond
Where you have been
To blow like leaves
Upon the winds
Of happenstance
Your chance
The future
In your hands
Your heart
Will always start
Again to care
To see beyond
The veil you wear
