Forged in fire
her heart is stronger
than any weapon,
spell or poison
mortal men may
summon to harm
or deceive with
deeds and
words concealed
in nectar.

Through battles
raged in fields of
flowers gold and
forests deep the
blade has drawn
its grief across
her breast
in brutal ignorance.

On ocean's edge
she stands while
tempests rage
a solitary guardian
of her dreams.

The wind catches
her whispered
prayer and
she lifts her face
to the storm and

Alien Abduction:::a Reconstructed Poem

Driving down the
empty streets of town
in to the moon
hanging over the
blacktop wet with
midnight rain

under construction

Saw a flower bloom
on a dry river bed
in to the wind
bending over the
past with hope and
trembling fear

mindful seduction

Heard a new song play
in my restless heart
felt the road
stretch out
familiar curves
stars to guide me

lost obstruction

Fire Dance

Bring me the fire
stir the elixir of dreams
dance to the drums
and conjure my injury
into the sky with magic
and the healing smoke
of sage
cleanse me
shaman, doctor, medicine man
priest, witch doctor, curandero
burn me cut me pierce me
chant the mantra
call the spirits
sing the ancient verses
remove my heart and
make it whole
or send my spirit to
the valley of peace
save me
from these demon coils
that bind me
or cast my ashes to the
winds of the desert

girl vs. God: Part Three

girl: go away.
God: I cannot do that.
girl: you're God, you can do anything, right? Go Away.
God: You know how it feels to love someone, don't you?
girl: yes.
God: You also know how it feels to love someone who doesn't return your love, don't you?
girl: yes.
God: Then you know I cannot leave you. I love you.
girl: Fine. Then please don't talk to me right now. You tricked me.
God: It's called Free Will. I know how things will turn out, but you make your own choices. Every choice you make can change the outcome. It's up to you. If I didn't love you, it would not be so.
girl: Did I choose this? I never wanted this pain.
God: Maybe not, but you're not the only human with Free Will.
girl: Couldn't you intervene just once? Use your power to change things?
God: The human heart has an amazing capacity to heal. A miracle really, if I do say so myself.
girl: Could you speed up the process then? I'm not getting any younger.
God: That is TRUE.
girl: Great, thanks. [sighs]
God: Now, you better get your sunglasses.
girl: Why?
God: You'll see....soon. In the meantime, remember...I love you, even if no one else does. [smiles]
girl: My dog loves me.
God: He also loves to eat rocks and chase his own tail.
girl: So what's your point?

Tears for Haiti

The Angel of Death
walks the streets with
heavy heart
blood on his feet and
his hands wet with
tears enough to fill
the ocean twice again
A deafening chorus
of misery pierces
his mind with the
sobbing of children
and the echoes of souls
so many collected
so many still to seek
while the sun sets
in apathy on the
sparkling blue sea.
Where is God?
The clock chimes
and the universe fills
with silence.

10,000+ Visitors

Beyond the Blue has passed the 10,000 visitor mark! Thank you!

Empty Page

Take my hand lift me up
lift me out of here
carry me far
to a new place
where no one knows
my face
or knows my
sorrow never
witnessed my scars
Never wounded me
Never gave me hope
when there was none
I need an empty page
to fill with something
real so take my hand

Keeper of my heart
thief of hope
I will not run
but fly on
broken wings
born in the dark
caverns of grief
drifting out of

the corners a
thundering echo
shatters the
sanctuary of
my mind
vanishing flight
and faith
falling through clouds
onto the blood
in the grass

on the water
rocking in the
it spins and
catches the
river's flow
then swiftly
