week 554 ~ rain blessed and cursed again falling

leave a comment »

rain blessed and cursed again falling
grass green feet wet sniffles begin
today the AC works why in
heaven’s name achoo pause to ring
out my soul long to be writing
duty calls thoughts drift poetry
seems always lurking hard to see
until code switching my brain hops
the fence and this funny verse pops
out making my day less dreary

week 552 ~ my heart too heavy to carry

leave a comment »

my heart too heavy to carry
held in both hands still scrapes the ground
daffodils wither without sound
old memories will not spare me
regret but their loss can’t bury
the vision of leaves blowing green
in a future landscape unseen
where spring patiently waits for me
to understand to really see
what the unconnected dots mean

week 525 ~ the riotous colors of fall

leave a comment »

the riotous colors of fall
psychedelicize the landscape
slip through a small crack and escape
to a brighter world warm with all
doors open roads clear and recall
the feeling of safety as a
small child jumping laughing delay
reality a moment more
luxuriously to ignore
that hours like leaves will decay

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
