week 675 ~ the bittersweet morning arrives in grey

with 2 comments

the bittersweet morning arrives in grey
trailing a rain cloud on the horizon
we wake up in an uncertain autumn
a tilted world holds disaster away
with thumbtacks as hope slides to the edge say
what you will we can taste oblivion
in our cornflakes in our eggs overdone
in our coffee bitter and black today
we suit up to save the world though doubtful
of the tools we can employ we’re steadfast
armed with a belief that democracy
won’t fail on our watch chewing a mouthful
of all that’s gone wrong we mean to outlast
our misfortune from sea to shining sea

week 228 ~ like running at a flock of birds

with 8 comments


like running at a flock of birds
dreams scatter as I jolt awake
and cower in the shadows take
all the time you need to find words
to say what’s not yet true as herds
of nouns and vowels serenely graze
unperturbed I in morning haze
stagger downstairs needing coffee
or a new life completely free
for expectations to amaze
