week 288 ~ dance on close your eyes

with 2 comments

me.288dance on close your eyes
pain won’t go away
nevermind time flies

it takes a few tries
to find a new way
dance on close your eyes

and wait for blue skies
though spring just won’t stay
nevermind time flies

dreaming sometimes buys
respite for a day
dance on close your eyes

and soon they’ll realize
it’s your turn to play
nevermind time flies

life comes in your size
so jump in the fray
dance on close your eyes
nevermind time flies

week 261 ~ let’s make peace and give it a chance

with 11 comments

me.261let’s make peace and give it a chance
make dinner and serve it up hot
let’s make love and marry or not
make some babies teach them to dance 

make good music a grand entrance
make time without asking what for
make art make dreams come true and more

make mistakes make amends make tea 

make someone laugh make them happy
let’s make a better world not war

I have been trying to write a poem about peace for my friend Jamie’s “Poets Against War” on her blog Into the Bardo. Everything came out so stilted– no point trying to force the muse– until I was in the airport in Rio thinking about my family and events of the past few weeks, and this decima just popped out. A bit late, Jamie, but heartfelt.
