week 663 ~ in the company

with 2 comments

in the company
of those I love well
of my family

I rest happily
for this brief sweet spell
in the company

of laughter silly
games red zinfandel
of my family

I dream most nights see
their faces to dwell
in the company

of those who love me
too a carousel
of my family

that twirls in 3-D
beyond our farewell
in the company
of my family

week 659 ~ when I think about tomorrow

with 2 comments

when I think about tomorrow
when I dream about what’s coming
basking in the summer sun ring
turning time away from sorrow
I realize I need to borrow
from my equity of past joy
gather up my strength to destroy
fear to reimagine my days
whole and peaceful counting the ways
onward finding strength to employ

week 654 ~ here is a peaceful moment

with one comment

here is a peaceful moment
so close your eyes and dream on
don’t fret for where the days went
here is a peaceful moment
savoring it’s time well spent
from such is happiness drawn
here is a peaceful moment
so close your eyes and dream on

week 551 ~ a small fragment of hope though unbidden

with one comment

a small fragment of hope though unbidden
lingers near the corner of my vision
not leading forward for truth still hidden
paints a future unknown how can I shun
the light imaginary though it may
be at this moment still waiting to shine
to illuminate the dream that won’t say
its name not yet the one that could be mine
or could remain stillborn in this climate
of uncertain weather harsh refusals
pound like driving rain I try to time it
to break for the door but life bamboozles
me at every turn flaunting its disguise
I teeter perplexed wishing to be wise

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 474 ~ the most important thing is peace

with one comment

the most important thing is peace
of mind the kind that leads to sleep
at night where promises will keep
and you can let yourself release
control convince your brain to cease
obsessing trust in the moment
without asking where the dream went
knowing life’s still as it should be
where you left it close your eyes see
you’ve just paused waiting for intent

week 468 ~ I wish I truly felt that way

with 2 comments

I wish I truly felt that way
it would be so much easier
to sleep at night to dream infer
peace from silence ignore decay
be hopeful keep the dark at bay
hold onto evening visualize
what never despite many tries
becomes in the end actual
though nothing’s inevitable
there’s sorrow when I close my eyes

week 464 ~ as if the Mona Lisa came alive

with 2 comments

as if the Mona Lisa came alive
and politely asked for a martini
straight up explaining breathlessly no jive
it’s hard outrunning the paparazzi
extra olives and light on the vermouth
she settles in and tells tall tales about
da Vinci and the joys of misspent youth
you better pay attention or she’ll pout
but as you start to ask a question she
looks up perturbed and says it’s time to go
she still has an important date to keep
and you’re left wondering what that could be
poised on the edge of a dream who can know
what goes on beyond the borders of sleep

week 463 ~ in what universe did we think

with 2 comments

in what universe did we think
we’d have time just to contemplate
the future rolling past we blink
in what universe did we think
we’d have a chance to stop and drink
in our success relax sleep late
in what universe did we think
we’d have time just to contemplate

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
