Dark and Light, Night and Shadow by A. Klesath

I like words as they comfort me in the dark, While I lay awake at night staring at the ceiling. I find answers to questions that in daylight have no meaning. Words dance with the lights that flicker and prance. I find solace in them as they come by chance, playing with them as they…

No clue by A. Klesath

There are moments in life I fail to speak My head grows heavy and my knees go weak My heart can’t decide whether to roar like a lion Or lay down with the lamb and sleep. What insanity exists that can deny loves tender kiss? -for protocol and truth dismissed. In life each of us…

A Promise by A. Klesath

We walk on the path set forth, Sometimes not knowing our worth. Shadows cast images, blinding sight, Consuming our hearts with fright. Willing our body, to continue to move, We trip upon the groove. Forcing us to wait, In a confused state. Cast into the long night, battling forces without sight. We bleed on bent…

Tripping on Roses by A. Klesath

I tripped and fell while running down a mountain scraping my knee and bruising my ego. As I lay there curled up in a ball and wishing for peace, I started to look at my hands covered in scars and scratches.  I looked at my knees and knew every scar had a story; learning to ride a bike,…

First Accept the Self by A. Klesath

Love and fear cannot reside in the same space. Like fire and water; one cannot exist while the other is strong. No war should be fought in the name of love. Nothing beautiful was created by fear. Fear has the ability to destroy everything and everyone it touches. In the moment we choose fear over…

Wise Beauty by A. Klesath

She stands, staring at the wind for which she cannot see. She smiles as the breeze tickles her skin, hair twirling across a deserted sky. Some days she climbs inside to seek shelter from the storm. Other days she is slowly breathes in the essence all around. Touching the bark, she feels safe, comforted by…

Choose Love by A. Klesath

I watched the sunrise this morning. Inspired by the beauty around me, I contemplated, as the light stretched across the scattered clouds with a glorious red, orange glow. I noticed the blackness surrounded the light but the light still persisted through the darkness to fill another day. Throughout history we have chosen to battle, fight,…

Run with Me A. Klesath

I had a dream I couldn’t connect to the people around me. They constantly told me which direction to go and what to do to be included. Yet, despite my attempts I was unable to relate. In my dream, I decided I needed to be me. I cut my hair the way I wanted. I…

Taking Turns by A. Klesath

  And she laughed- arms spread wide, embracing the wind. Each turn an adventure. Each bend, a risk worth taking. Pull hard on the throttle! Heart pounding, mind focused, Choose the path and go with it. Too fast to change plans now! Pull harder, push right then left. Keep moving forward- Speed varies as each…

Fade Dress by A. Klesath

  Love is expansive – immeasurable-inclusive Love is divine intervention- When temporarily shrouded in fear, lies and moral deceit Truth delegates love Love is vibrational energy that levitates, coordinates, Disintegrating all doubt- Stretching to become, Expounding energy infinite across time. Grounded to source- Connected to life Tilting in excess In an instant Draw tight-Expand Loosely, gently, simply…

Muse by A. Klesath

Imagination is limitless- Words are limited. They define us, confine us, box us in and hold us- Emotional dissonance Spiritual fortitude Remove language, syntax, meaning, understanding from the equation Just breathe- Space Time Bend! Breathing beauty glides in- Stretching with eyes closed. Air filtering, slipping, Eyes open. Color, shapes Stand still, just be. Caught in…
