week 672 ~ a time to think about

leave a comment »

a time to think about
how the world spins today
a time to blot dreams out

a time to cry to shout
hard to refrain they say
a time to think about

this mess but my hideout
beckons don’t go that way
a time to blot dreams out

easier to hide from doubt
when the future’s in play
a time to think about

nothing a news blackout
would work hold facts at bay
a time to blot dreams out

I am too small to rout
disaster push away
a time to think about
a time to blot dreams out

week 617 ~ hold a finger up to check which

with 2 comments

hold a finger up to check which
way the wind blows it’s too dark out
here to see much hope now when doubt
casts its shadow time’s in the ditch
no one even thinks it’s a glitch
in the system not yet at least
until the gargoyles are released
from crumbling cathedral spires lost
saints resurrected ships storm tossed
and failed rescue efforts have ceased

sleepless night
spacey day
make it right
sleepless night
losing sight
lost my way
sleepless night
spacey day

week 473 ~ as life swirls around I reach out

with one comment

as life swirls around I reach out
snatch blindly through the empty air
not sure what I hope to find there
or why I’m here and looking shout
and the words bounce back full of doubt
neither brave nor foolish I start
off no certainty in my heart
hoping action confers purpose
the path abandoned treacherous
this story heads for its next part

week 436 ~ if this was just a dream

with 2 comments

if this was just a dream
and not now what is true
harder than it would seem

look back suppress the scream
decide what’s left to do
if this was just a dream

would it feel so extreme
we’re trying to push through
harder than it would seem

paddling slowly upstream
as damages accrue
if this was just a dream

a somnolescent gleam
no intrinsic value
harder that it would seem

to parse this mess midstream
decide what to pursue
if this was just a dream
harder than it would seem

week 368 ~ a dream outside my window

with 2 comments

me.368a dream outside my window
hovers in sunlight too bright
I squint try to see it though

odds are it isn’t mine slow
-ly as if drugged I turn right
a dream outside my window

absurd as it is I go
over hopes fading with night
I squint try to see it though

it slips away I won’t show
doubt for it may still alight
a dream outside my window

iridescent in limbo
blindly beautiful in flight
I squint try to see it though

wishing never makes things so
and obligations obscure sight
a dream outside my window
I squint try to see it though

week 325 ~ if you would still believe

with 4 comments

me.325if you would still believe
in things you cannot see
there’s no room to deceive

here on this new year’s eve
as fortunes interweave
if you would still believe

 in all you can conceive
in all you long to be
there’s no room to deceive

 last year’s transgressions leave
with Iemanja sail free
if you would still believe

 in grace in a reprieve
to live on happily
there’s no room to deceive

 give heinous doubt the heave
trust in January
if you would still believe
there’s no room to deceive

week 310 ~ as the river runs to the sea

with 2 comments

me.310as the river runs to the sea
and all round objects roll downhill
truth should win over lies but will
it in the long run will it be
strong enough can hope still carry
our souls and dreams rise heavenward
once we believed perhaps inferred
that all would be well in the end
happiness just around the bend
could lie or be a lie I’ve heard

week 304 ~ look around this is where I am

with 2 comments

me.304look around this is where I am
within sound of a hurricane
underground where the brave remain
lost but found time runs on the lam
as dawn navigates the logjam
asking where I’ll be when it comes
following love’s fresh trail of crumbs
within sight of the horizon
questions obscure the conclusion
while tomorrow hangs by its thumbs
