week 409 ~ Brazil twines its tendrils around my heart

with 2 comments

me.409Brazil twines its tendrils around my heart
caught immersed in a wash of color sound
dreaming of there languishing here it’s bound
to draw a sigh I always feel a part
of Rio piercing my soul when music
withers so far from its ancestral well
of inspiration displaced ghosts don’t tell
their story as beautifully I pick
an option and carry on stoically
replacing fleeting dreams with concrete chores
the laundry will be done living abhors
a vacuum and simplicity suits me
I’ll still be here when Rio reappears
to benevolently assuage my fears

week 395 ~ there is a melody deep in my soul

with 2 comments

me.395there is a melody deep in my soul
most days it sits quietly waiting for
the walls of busy to relax for more
than a breath so I can reboot to whole
it drums inside my brain flashes briefly
but then subsides stymied by a world that
steam rollers upstart inspiration flat
no time to spare for creativity
so I drift on hopeful that up ahead
I’ll trade in duty and nonessential
schedules sneak past the signal jammer full
to the top with tunes that will sing instead
of disappearing into rush hour
distracted dissolving losing power
