Poem: Dear Redwood

Dear Redwood, You were a sanctuary. A place of solitude To escape this loud world. But now the world is silent. Coffee shops and parks Aren't filled with laughter But signs for distancing. Stadiums are empty of fans Screaming obnoxiously. Cities are void of crowds. And smiles hide under this new tacky wardrobe. I do... Continue Reading →

Poem: Still, I Will Sing To God On High

If winter fails to blossom Into spring And the sun Forbears to shine Still, I will sing To God on High. If darkness grips Like a thunderstorm And flowers faint On a bitter day Still, I will sing To God on High. If dreams are lost in the ocean abyss And hope hides In the... Continue Reading →

Poem: Lessons From Life

Poem: God Of Refuge

When shadows darken the soul And hope hides behind the horizon I run to the God of peace And my worries cease. When winter fails to bring spring. And dreams are lost at sea I cry out to the God of mercy My parched lips no longer thirsty. When flowers dry out in the heat... Continue Reading →

Haiku: Nature’s Mirror

The mirror is fake.The lake's reflection is aMore natural me. Oftentimes, we focus on the outside self as the genuine person inside.

Poem: Storms Bring Life

I choose Not to be afraid Of the storm Just because it roars. The rain will breathe life Into shriveled tulips. Soon the dark clouds Will run and hide From the mighty sun. And a new day Will bloom hope. © Chad Damitz, 2020

Poem: No Direction To Go On The Open Road

On the open road. No direction to go. No place to be.  Just the wind in my hair. The past behind me. Oh how I want to be free!  I want to go north. See the mountains climb. Feel the cold breeze in my face. Taste glacier pure water.  Smell the evergreen trees. Oh how... Continue Reading →
