When The Rains Fall

We all sort of band together,

a community,

suddenly we want to feel like we

believe

in similar ways

the grief of the day,

or in contrast,

the delightful nature of a

calm spring day,

when last night,

when the horrid reality of life

in all of its shapeless mortality,

suddenly did reign upon us

with passion,

a vigor more relentless than ever we might

Imagine,

and yet now this morning,

sun streaked skies allow our hearts to breathe

in natural elegance,

we will recall the Purple Rain of symbolic legacy.

Until later on, when beyond the intoxicating allure

of a glorious spring evening,

we do sleep again, only to wonder

if when morning returns

will we listen to the soft coo,

When Doves Cry

We Breathe In Crimson

prince

We’re disconnected,
stunned,
walking in circles,
wishing doves sing

Don’t want any tears,
disbelief,
I’d rather pretend
life is more than a mirror.

Where do they go,
when someone dies,
how do we know
they can ever be again

“How can you leave (us) standing”
the world is alone without you,
I wish I could step into the rain,
I wish the color scheme streamed

PURPLE RAIN

“Dearly Beloved”
talking out loud
about life
and ‘the afterworld’

When is it we can finally
realize mortality
long before the shock
of sudden departure.

I never did realize my dreams
back in 1999 I was a punk,
wanting “a little red…”
consequence in life is my
good night

Peace to your soul,
we all speak the truth,
pursed lips in an

everlasting smile.
