Re-Made

Re-Made (Randyjw; July 13, 2019)

 

Why do we take this pain

and internalize it, until we have

nothing to say?

 

Maybe we’re just too hurt;

Maybe it’s the way we’re made.

I wish you could read with my heart

the unstoppable, beating thoughts

you, only, love

One Breath

One Breath (Randyjw; June 24, 2019)

 

You leave me breathless;

Wanting, Lacking, and restless…

(peacefully rested).

Save Face

Save Face (Randyjw; June 21, 2019):

 

Before valuing another,

Don’t be hasty to rely on the opinions of others

Though they speak loudly

and with seeming authority

Someone that cares will be their own heart- and fact-checker

A Dream Uncovered

A Dream Uncovered (Randyjw; June 19, 2019)

 

Unveiling the moon

of her shrouded mysteries

Randy’s Reviews: Tears of the Moon – by Nora Roberts

Beauty and melancholy intertwine in the Irish folklore, music, and deep ties to its land. Among its people, a haunting longing within the heart and soul can only be quenched by returning to the roots of all connections: G-d, Love, and Country. For Brenna O’Toole and Shawn Gallagher, each learn to find the fulfillment of their deepest dreams and desires through a gradual understanding of the meaning inherent in all three.
