week 669~ as if waiting for the moon rise

with 2 comments

as if waiting for the moon rise
now birds fall silent insects hum
themselves to sleep dreaming of sun
watching the forest through their eyes
we welcome evening in disguise
troubles dropping by the wayside
lost in fallen acorns they hide
with past disappointments as if
they realize a single wiff
of doubt could shove our peace aside

week 602 ~ birds sing build nests lay eggs plan their future

with one comment

birds sing build nests lay eggs plan their future
I hear them wonder what will mine look like
when it gets here this cruel limbo could psych
out the most optimistic oh yeah sure
day by day I’m following the detour
uncharted streets taking me from lifelike
back to life hold my finger in the dike
long enough to keep those I love secure
a sonnet takes control of something set
syllables rhyme scheme with a beginning
and end one forty puffs of words to get
through not that certain about anything
else I tidy up the thoughts I regret
and walk outside the sun’s there and birds sing

week 487 ~ an incantation for spring

with one comment

an incantation for spring
wait in anticipation
‘til winter banished birds sing

teeter on faith desiring
days of warmth blue skies and sun
an incantation for spring

weeks turn to months lingering
cold distracts all hopes undone
‘til winter banished birds sing

songs that catch our ear ending
snow’s silent insulation
an incantation for spring

holding on ready to fling
windows wide still frustration
‘til winter banished birds sing

we see them in our dreams wing
their way north our fixation
an incantation for spring
‘til winter banished birds sing

week 460 ~ into the impending gloom

with 2 comments

into the impending gloom
as birds fly but do not sing
and all good saints flee the room
into the impending gloom
ghosts exit their twilight tomb
I have nothing left to bring
into the impending gloom
as birds fly but do not sing

me.300drowned trees dream
helplessly
stuck mid-stream
drowned trees dream
wild birds scream
hurts to see
drowned trees dream
helplessly

me.277here snow’s falling
in my garden
still enthralling
here snow’s falling
bird songs calling
spring who knows when
here snow’s falling
in my garden
