week 644 ~ bright lights close her eyes

with 2 comments

bright lights close her eyes
squint out at the world
I’m ok she lies

spring from winter flies
windy night unfurled
bright lights close her eyes

head down she still tries
dodging troubles hurled
I’m ok she lies

still her answer buys
time through dangers swirled
bright lights close her eyes

though she sometimes cries
in dread’s cocoon curled
I’m ok she lies

snow melts pavement dries
questions answers twirled
bright lights close her eyes
I’m ok she lies

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 518 ~ determination

with 2 comments

determination
trumps adversity
we’re not Trump’s nation
determination
can change the station
dream agenda-free
determination
trumps adversity

week 501 ~ outrun the darkness

with 2 comments

outrun the darkness
as long as you can
love more and fear less
outrun the darkness
though there’s no egress
head on with your plan
outrun the darkness
as long as you can

week 187 ~ an unexpected consequence of loss

with 26 comments

an unexpected consequence of loss
pain opens doors that would have remained closed
without contradiction superimposed
across the map of my lost future toss
out expectations they don’t matter gloss
over tribulation a heart exposed
to the elements beats like it’s supposed
to no matter what the rest’s only dross
I walk ahead pelted by cleansing rain
time has no answers for me truth has fled
it hollers back pack up your wounds have bled
enough throw out the reasons to remain
here it’s time to move on you surely know
you’ll never find out why until you go
