week 646 ~ the seasons leap ahead

with 2 comments

the seasons leap ahead
warm days leak through the cracks
signs of freedom misread
the seasons leap ahead
but I hold back instead
not time yet to relax
the seasons leap ahead
warm days leak through the cracks

week 639 ~ anesthetized we carried on

with 2 comments

anesthetized we carried on
sleep walking through grave disaster
awakened now can we master
the wreckage left behind he’s gone
but can violent words be withdrawn
can peace and hope return at last
and lies that left us once aghast
be rendered mute become harmless
inoculated can we bless
this day of change and heal the past

week 636 ~ stop being who you were

with 2 comments

stop being who you were
change into who you are
miracles won’t occur
stop being who you were
throw out the furniture
go buy a new guitar
stop being who you were
change into who you are

week 610 ~ I step out gently

with one comment

I step out gently
is now the right time
to reinvent me

and consequently
is the right path rhyme
I step out gently

while incidently
evening falls sublime
to reinvent me

a twig once bent free
of restraints may climb
I step out gently

listen intently
music’s a lifeline
to reinvent me

to represent the
ghostly pantomime
I step out gently
to reinvent me

week 517 ~ safe behind the glass

with 4 comments

safe behind the glass
look but never touch
chances to change pass
safe behind the glass
protected alas
truth does not help much
safe behind the glass
look but never touch

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 448 ~ when I was sleeping

with 2 comments

when I was sleeping
someone changed the world
there’s no safekeeping
when I was sleeping
chaos came leaping
more blatant lies hurled
when I was sleeping
someone changed the world

week 413 ~ floating toward the exit door take me

with 2 comments

me-413floating toward the exit door take me
far from this opera forever more
make me pack my bags buy my ticket soar
far as far as I can finally see
an empty calendar with days weeks free
to laugh write sleep hum I want to grab for
the brass ring to unfurl my dreams before
asking if they’ll find room to grow to be
ready for whatever uncharted course
might reveal itself before it’s too late
before the entrenched path closes off all
other options to explore maybe force
a new ending for my story if fate
abhors a vacuum catch me as I fall

week 388 ~ once upon a galaxy far away

with 2 comments

me.388once upon a galaxy far away
in a wonderment where time suspended
awaited a decision still ahead
when now could not access the words to say
which door would open in the end which way
the real questions would be answered instead
of brushed away by the unseen splendid
possibilities of cards left to play
when the present becomes the past to see
the bumps in the road as problems well solved
with the knowledge at hand as life evolved
hopes knocked down dreams rebounded plans set free
some won some lost but most still unresolved
will we be glad then to stand where we’ll be

week 358 ~ gathered in a wilted bouquet

with 2 comments

me.357gathered in a wilted bouquet
dropping petals moments of grace
a still life looking for a place
to bloom again for who can say
the laws of natural decay
apply to dreams in a future
changing underfoot to be sure
is to be mistaken to doubt
is safer to figure stuff out
is the goal but never the cure
