week 289 ~ like a doggie on a string

with 2 comments

me.289like a doggie on a string
when every dog has its day
break out what could life bring
like a doggie on a string
set free grab the golden ring
bark run make those suckers pay
like a doggie on a string
when every dog has its day

week 231 ~ the weather doesn’t know what time it is

with 6 comments


the weather doesn’t know what time it is
and midnight won’t wait because it’s raining
for they exist outside context like spring
and though we know they’ll soon be gone our wis-
dom never saves us from regret forget
those similes the ones you planned to write
step out onto the knife’s edge where the slight-
est breeze changes your perspective don’t let
Mother Nature scare you or Father Time
they’ve got jobs to do and so do you but
their parameters are more diffuse shut
your eyes inhale the sweet constraints of rhyme
daffodils are blooming and you’re older
good enough reasons for dreaming bolder

week 200 ~ light falling on the daffodils

with 6 comments

light falling on the daffodils
in memory incandescent
perpetual impermanent
like a dream that my soul distills
hoping to find gold in the rills
spilling out of a long lost spring
but sadly nothing now can bring
back the innocence that believed
in the plan happiness conceived
time smiled ruefully then took wing
