Telling Tales

Telling Tales by Damian Gadal
Another day slowly fades into night,
the sinking sun showcases the sky...
in golden light.

Behind the sea the sun hides,
darkness rolling forth...
nocturnal mystery springs from ocean tides.

Distorted View

Distorted View by Damian Gadal
Bring on the night,
colors of the day,
gone, red
out on the streets of the city,
L.A.
The city about, the city obscene
brown bag joy, old men
attack dogs attached to blind...
and corner street women,
mothers of sin,
brown air...
I'm on the streets...
it was a dare...

End of the day

End of the day by Damian Gadal
When it all comes together,
though I almost passed it by,
getting from here to there,
all gone in the blink of an eye...
forgetting the when and where...

Whenever I'm Alone

Whenever I'm Alone by Damian Gadal
Lost in a moment,
a flash of feelings, immense...
Like an ocean only bigger, bolder
and more mysterious...

Room for all

Room for all by Damian Gadal
Small splashes along the shore,
murmur more than roar,
a concert of the sea,
lead us on our way,
as we conclude another day...
in these moments we are free.

Bay Bridge

Bay Bridge by Damian Gadal
With the soft colors of the night,
as the mist rolls in, shadows dance,
the bridge comes to life in light...

Unlikely

Unlikely by Damian Gadal
We paid with our lives,
for the life we wanted,
with our hearts,
for the love we needed,
with our years,
for the time we desired...
fighting for and losing
all that was ours....

Make the world yours

Make the world yours by Damian Gadal
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” - Steve Jobs

On the phone

On the phone by Damian Gadal
Life's full of distractions. So much so, that I may end up having to crash a photowalk, as the time to register came and went.
