Author: Rick Ryckman


My soul has chased the great pleasures of yesterday.
Through the years, the pictures that have been weaving my strands.
As my bridge --- hangs across its gorge.
That loosely swings --- to and fro with a light breeze.
As I trespass the narrows of my memories.
My phantom footsteps have weakened, and betrayed me.
Leaving me its bewilderment.
Drifting gracefully or delicate in confused harmony.
In the splashing of my tears --- I have searched deeply.
In --- my trembling wings of flight.
Oh gentle love --- I let go.

Once in the month of October I had to set a Monarch butterfly free!
They say if you set a true love free and it was meant to be, it will come back to you.
I do not believe this.
But I do believe that Monarch butterflies can fly in the rain of a black hole.
I belive in the magic of dreams.
A man must learn how to cry in order to taste his tears.
