Pouring Water Into a Pessimist

Can I swim the desert where the sea died or does sand filled lungs fear drowning?
Out where my echo coughs with grit tomorrow is an erasure wind condemned to whisk a footprint’s progression into the mirage of never begun.
Hope is a doorway placed in the middle of empty to pour a glass half full.
The why is known…The can be encouraged.
I am a river of one hoping to become a flood filled with dreamers.

Writing My Sky

With the pity of seagulls this human rock flew a puppet’s journey where mist swallows marsh.
In the birdsong of capture I felt gravity’s war with sky.
Through palms clutching air the wind read my fortune…
Your wings are feathers of ink. If you wish to soar the heavens, don’t build a cage with empty pages.
