Washed Away

Eyes up to the sky
Rain falling upon my face
Blending with my tears

Cleansing my iniquities
Mercy’s song filling my soul

Take Flight – Tanka

The sky is open

Can you feel the calling wind

Pushing you forward

 

Purple hues are whispering

Take flight now my sweet darling

The Poet Reclining by Marc Chagall

The Poet Reclining by Marc Chagall

Tranquil silence is
No longer in my future
The cries of the dead
Ever screaming in my mind
We will never rest again
