Radiant Flower

Flowing through my heart
the sounds of life everlasting

Pieces of Truth
I am unaware of

The thief steals my joy
and I am alone
to face the stars
and the consequences of my life

Why does this happen
in crazy spirals
over and over?

Things could be so much easier
if I would only let them be

Where are you Radiant Flower?

I ask my heart for the answers
and they do not come at first

Then, without notice
the answers come in torrents
like waves crashing on the shore

Later, I am alone again
without the armor of love to protect me

And then, I remember
The Radiant Flower blooms
when I want it to
with every cell of my being

And then, to my surprise,
I find the Radiant Flower has bloomed
once again

I’ve written three feature length screenplays, produced two short films, and published three novels.
