POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

TRUTH AND LIES

 

The truth

Will be hidden

As we are

Distracted

By the lies.

POEM & FLEETING THOUGHTS

DREAMS

 

I have the dreams

Of a young man,

Denying my age

In my fantasy.

Vanishing Tracks

This poem may respond to many people. Thanks for your strength for your loved ones, gone but still here to love.

Translations from the English

Mom

Doris Marie Lawson Schwaner, 7/3/1939 – 11/8/2017

I wrote this for my mother a little over six years ago. She’d been battling Alzheimer’s disease for several years. I heard her voice yesterday afternoon and she heard mine, thanks to my sister. 

Vanishing Tracks (II)

What is resilient in us is resistant to memory
When the memory goes she will be some other self
Still resilient to the sailing light and shadow
And hungers and exhaustions of love
Made maybe even more immediate

When the resilience goes what is that then

When the resistance goes what is that

Just outside her heart she hears a sound in the night
I am out there knocking on the dusty porch
I have brought a friend with me
When she opens the door will she see herself

Do you remember when the car door opened up
As you drove and I…

This recalled an image of Hitler. Reflections of his generals telling Hitler that all was fine as the world stumbled to chaos.

A Writer's Path

by Ryan Decaria

After much contemplation about writing magic systems, I’ve decided on a new writing philosophy. These guides work for me, but should in no way be considered “writing rules”.

  1. In fantasy, I’m going to treat my magic systems like a science
  2. In science fiction, I’m going to treat my “pushed” science like magic

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: CONFUSION

THE PAST AND PRESENT

 

I recall the little boy

Full of hope

And no one

To give him

Guidance.

His young mind

Could not understand.

 

He became a man

And as in his youth

There are no answers.
