In The Land Of Giants

Poem By Carolyn Brunelle

Again and again, hit after hit,
you keep your friend close and lit
even when there's no good reason
to medicate, no voices to placate.
Face it! ... you're hooked;
sickened on your own toxic cloud
and standing in your own ruin.
Not even a full breath do you own;
but that's only the FIRST thing to go.
This Giant addiction has only to wait;
you'll give up a whole lot more
as you continue to puff your life away.

Ancient Struggle

Another age old story
seventeen years of nurturing
yearns to be free.

A Little Light

For everything a reason
and a season under the sun;
every puzzle has its answer
that is not uniquely our own.

A Harbor

Come into my open arms
and I’ll chase away your fears,
feed your empty aching need
and dry up all your tears.

God Is Greater

God is Greater
than our losses,
our needs, our sorrows.
In his grace

Acrostic (None Are Lost)

N one of us are who we think we are.
O nly those sheeple who follow blindly
N ecessitate great introspection, cruel judgement.
E veryone is on equal ground.

Night Companions

Lady night
dances across the horizon
flourishing her skirts
of blue velvet
