week 623 ~ let me start at the beginning

with 2 comments

let me start at the beginning
again with a calm demeanor
the future expansive leaner
younger with a chance of winning
still in the 3rd or 4th inning
stars in my eyes heart on my sleeve
young enough to hope to believe
that time is truly on my side
lust unmasked with nothing to hide
and nothing precious lost to grieve

week 617 ~ hold a finger up to check which

with 2 comments

hold a finger up to check which
way the wind blows it’s too dark out
here to see much hope now when doubt
casts its shadow time’s in the ditch
no one even thinks it’s a glitch
in the system not yet at least
until the gargoyles are released
from crumbling cathedral spires lost
saints resurrected ships storm tossed
and failed rescue efforts have ceased

week 612 ~ wrapped in music I can pretend

with 2 comments

wrapped in music I can pretend
the world outside my windows is
the same as it was I hear his
piano the resonance mend
-ing black holes in my world to bend
the hours back to winter how
much we miss then in our sad now
losing our easy existence
overnight we grasp one instance
of playing together somehow

week 605 ~ what about our dreams the music

with 2 comments

what about our dreams the music
we’re meant to play if not today
then when can we make up time stay
-ing tucked into a detour stick
-ing to a local life we’ll pick
up the rest later sometime how
isn’t clear it’s surreal our now
here and now wiped clean and normal
gone to disinfectants who’ll tell
us what the future will allow

week 585 ~ in a new year a new decade

with one comment

in a new year a new decade
what awaits will we be ready
to take it on to stand steady
as our vision begins to fade
leaves us hesitant plans unmade
still gather on the horizon
linger though currently undone
we prop them up with brave pizzazz
and hopeful cross our fingers as
time walks toward the setting sun

week 577 ~ build up the small personal world

with 2 comments

build up the small personal world
around you let it surround you
myopically to get you through
to another day’s dreams still curled
up inside waiting once unfurled
there’ll be no going back proudly
you will stand walk ahead doubt free
but not today not yet take time
to heal make sure to wipe the grime
off the windshield so much to see

week 554 ~ rain blessed and cursed again falling

with one 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

with one 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

with one 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
