week 522 ~ klutzy little boy in red clogs

with 2 comments

klutzy little boy in red clogs
trying to kick a blue balloon
it was a bit warmer at noon
then it clouded up and the fog’s
rolling in the boy’s laughing dogs
nip at his heels chase him barking
the band plays on in the parking
lot as the end of summer looms
I drink a beer these afternoons
will soon be gone so keep rocking

week 521 ~ blocked in a box no song to sing

with 2 comments

blocked in a box no song to sing
the light switch won’t work we regard
the darkness around us too hard
to hope for morning we’re waiting
for our time anticipating
there will be a way out ahead
a door to truth but here instead
glib promises what can be done
to turn the tide a task begun
our future still mired in dread

week 506 ~ sit quietly for a moment

with 2 comments

sit quietly for a moment
until your sense of place returns
you belong here all your concerns
will resolve the road simply bent
unexpectedly you were sent
in a new direction unplanned
malfunctioning but as you land
here look around don’t try to rise
just wait until you see blue skies
and feel the sun then choose to stand

week 504 ~ life is finally slowing down

with 2 comments

life is finally slowing down
leaving room for mad to poke through
inspiration that might undo
the loss of dreams that have been drowned
in some ocean of false renown
what’s important what you intend
is nearer days are longer bend
time to your purpose find a new
road ahead but move quickly to
sidestep the thought you might offend

week 502 ~ the parched monochrome of winter

with 2 comments

the parched monochrome of winter
fades as flowers punctuate the
landscape leaves unfurl even we
mere mortals take off a layer
of insulation without fur
like newly naked cats bust out
toes exposed in flip-flops some doubt
the soundness of our judgment but
it’s a spring fever frenzy shut
the window why when colors shout

week 496 ~ I am writing for a future

leave a comment »

I am writing for a future
a time when my voice will be heard
now it’s too bold so not a word
marks the world but that won’t deter
art music love all these infer
a presence as life is passing
by all the paint I can I fling
at the wall sonic graffiti
claws out through the work sets it free
to land somewhere where hopes can sing

week 495 ~ music is the only path out

leave a comment »

music is the only path out
sometimes when darkness is falling
vision muted future calling
for more than I can give without
melting into despair to doubt
the facts around me denial
tempts feigned blindness the trial
of waiting seems impossible
to navigate life should be full
of hope unfettered by guile
