week 575 ~ time always passing as lit from within

with 2 comments

time always passing as lit from within
memories escape from their holding cell
with joy or sorrow hallmarks of life well
and truly lived too many to begin
to spend time while the present rushes in
and then it’s gone with stories yet to tell
I hold fast in the current if I fell
would I pass on too would momentum win
or tied to a life path I can’t let go
in moments of despair because of all
who wouldn’t understand I chose to fall
to rush through the interminably slow
unwinding of years left dreams forgotten
have I the strength to stand back up again

week 436 ~ if this was just a dream

with 2 comments

if this was just a dream
and not now what is true
harder than it would seem

look back suppress the scream
decide what’s left to do
if this was just a dream

would it feel so extreme
we’re trying to push through
harder than it would seem

paddling slowly upstream
as damages accrue
if this was just a dream

a somnolescent gleam
no intrinsic value
harder that it would seem

to parse this mess midstream
decide what to pursue
if this was just a dream
harder than it would seem

week 360 ~ the orange guitar lies abandonado

with 2 comments

me.360the orange guitar lies abandonado
as the last light of evening filters through
like sunset across the water ask who
will play it now in the twilight or go
to the window call back time fleeting
we have never really said we’re sorry
we stopped believing in possibility
in paths not taken instead repeating
the comfortable it’s easy to hide
from what could be from what was always here
but grab a flashlight a candle and peer
in perhaps your patient muse will decide
to reconvene all the choices waiting
for misplaced dreams to finally wake and sing

week 354 ~ sing a song of everything

with 2 comments

me.354sing a song of everything
wrapped up with a crooked bow
joy and heartache life can bring
sing a song of everything
bees make honey though they sting
dreams are choices we make so
sing a song of everything
wrapped up with a crooked bow
