On Seeking Light 

When I cannot find time

To write what I will

It strangely begins to feel

As though time stood still. 

While submerged beneath

Crashing torrents of life

Where no words can express 

My darkness seeking light. -ria

On An Occasion 

Doing the right thing 

Is the simplest choice

Making the decision 

Is not always nice. 

Still it has never been

Worth doing otherwise 

When doing right leads 

To an occasion to rise. -ria


There are consequences 

Which seem inevitable 

And whatever the results

It won’t prove redeemable 

All is not totally lost

When what is to be reaped

After crossing certain paths

Flings things into the deep

Every version actually leads

Through very similar  cycles 

Alternating between levels 

Of discipline and desires

Any possible reaction now

Has its equal and opposite 

Where reasons are so inspiring 

Few clearly can ever resist it

There are just rewards 

That might demand patience 

Which aids the transition 

Into being more persistent 

Habits are deeply embedded 

More than can be justified 

And each that is outgrown 

Will be broken if we tried

On The Foundation 

It’s deeply entrenched 

No need trying to resist 

Issues so intertwined 

Into reasons one exists. 

Seeking any justification 

Might go against beliefs

Which forms the foundation 

From which we seek relief.  -ria


Out in the margins 

Are scribbled reminders

To highlight the areas 

We’re meant to be kinder

Some phrases underlined 

To recall with more ease

The depth of their meaning

With which our heart agrees

Never folding the corners

Too many pages to bend

With words so revitalizing 

To recall and comprehend 

While in the footnotes

Are jotted explanations

Of how goodness comes

In it’s many variations 

Reading between the lines

Reveals the deeper mystery

Which had been so elusive 

Through all the intensity 

Now no sorry epitaph

Will remain in its wake

As the page soon turns

What imagination creates

On Sediments 

Simply passing through 

Each necessary experience 

Filters out the other things

Separating the sediments.

Amongst the bits of residue 

Are matters that can’t remain 

And must be totally discarded 

To allow for inevitable change. -ria

On The Optimal 

To be more reasonable 

Serves its purpose well

And being more mindful

On what thoughts dwell. 

For it is prudent at least

To have a steady focus

On the optimal destinations

Where dreams will take us. -ria


The level of intensity 
Does vary over time

It’s fluctuations so impactful 

On the sharp edges of the mind

In the midst of the waves

Crashing into our shores 

Riding the rough high tide

Strengthens deep in the core

While out there in the future

Where the arrival is witnessed 

All evidence of the struggles 

May not travel the distance 

What indeed is noticeable 

When it changes so much

Is the message and mode

Of all that life will now touch

And in those calm moments

The foamy surf caress the sand

Allowing for deserving relaxation  

That will not last for very long

Since the sheer magnitude 

Of the potency that develops 

Can only be clear to organisms

With an eye for the rebellious 
Ria 2017

On Taking Shape 

There are some things 

That get better with age

And is worth the wait

And growth to that stage. 

For when they finally begin

To take shape and manifest 

Then it becomes very obvious 

It’s sweeter than we’d expect. -ria
