week 673 ~ there is no reason here

leave a comment »

there is no reason here
no time to pause to dwell
nothing remains to fear
there is no reason here
the table’s been swept clear
all the dominos fell
there is no reason here
no time to pause to dwell

week 670 ~ is there nothing to be done

leave a comment »

is there nothing to be done
is there nowhere to be glad
we have let the vandals run
is there nothing to be done
to head off the destruction
of the safety we once had
is there nothing to be done
is there nowhere to be glad

week 668 ~ since music’s best served as a team sport

leave a comment »

since music’s best served as a team sport
don’t forget friends in isolation
dream of a time we’ll freely consort
since music’s best served as a team sport
and playing alone’s a last resort
or a prelude for contemplation
since music’s best served as a team sport
don’t forget friends in isolation

week 664 ~ now happily

with 2 comments

now happily
back in kid-dom
cool things to see
now happily
immersed we three
don’t pause near glum
now happily
back in kid-dom

week 662~ dizzy with choices

with 2 comments

dizzy with choices
frazzled by freedom
finding our voices
dizzy with choices
summer rejoices
still we are struck dumb
dizzy with choices
frazzled by freedom

week 661 ~ in honor of father’s day

with 2 comments

in honor of father’s day
remembering lost refrains
that pass quietly away
in honor of father’s day
a smiling photo to say
he is gone but love remains
in honor of father’s day
remembering lost refrains

week 660 ~ just jump high

with 2 comments

just jump high
find the moon
pierce the sky
just jump high
don’t ask why
it’s too soon
just jump high
find the moon

week 657 ~ the poetry of loss

leave a comment »

the poetry of loss
watching a life unspool
mere wishing cannot gloss
the poetry of loss
the angst you try to toss
the dread you never fool
the poetry of loss
watching a life unspool

week 656 ~ warm beach days beckon me

with one comment

warm beach days beckon me
as summer sun leaks through
ocean breezes blow free
warm beach days beckon me
and I can almost see
the world opening new
warm beach days beckon me
as summer sun leaks through
