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 394 ~ braid the strands of life love stress pull ever

with 2 comments

me.394braid the strands of life love stress pull ever
tighter leave no wiggle room for breathing
doubt none for mistakes if you keep running
fast enough you won’t have to think never
stop stumble the end is some place clever
up ahead so remember everything
in case there’s a quiz someday when it’s spring
in the future when days last forever
when there will be time enough to dream will
it occur to you to pause look for an
alternate path untwine the unneeded
strands of your regret to see if there’s still
an outside chance to reinvent the plan
and improvise a better song instead

week 356 ~ when there is a dream to carry

with 2 comments

me.356when there is a dream to carry
I hope that I will do my share
to move joy around simply care
enough to let the right things be
change some and watch the rest run free
recognizing there’s a new way
to move ahead with grace to stay
bound by indecision is death
so I pause just to draw a breath
then grab my mandolin and play

week 306 ~ words launched from gaping mouths pile up around

with 2 comments

me.306words launched from gaping mouths pile up around
us errant paper airplanes valiantly
striving to carry big ideas sound
gesture belief shot precariously
into the void to die there purpose spent
success was never guaranteed we know
but still we hoped our hard-birthed missives went
toward a sympathetic ear to show
their merit thereby demonstrating ours
making the days years of this journey worth
their cost lost pursuit of secret dream hours
that haunt us knowing what-if time on earth
limits everything as these words now fall
silent perhaps not mattering at all

week 294 ~ my life will not wait for time

with 2 comments

me.294

my life will not wait for time
and it never waits for me
leap now into this sublime
moment that holds destiny

and it­ never waits for me
as I equivocate a
moment that holds destiny
to put the future in play

as I equivocate a
plan now to follow through
to put the future in play
there’s only one thing do

plan now to follow through
a dream is never no-fail
there’s only one thing do
when desire won’t derail

a dream is never no-fail
leap now into this sublime
when desire won’t derail
my life will not wait for time

week 276 ~ I stand here gazing down the road ahead

with 2 comments

me.276I stand here gazing down the road ahead
what waits for me is hidden ‘round the bend
a curvy path of promises I send
my past a backwards glance wanting instead
to close that door and open up a dream
while jumping off the edge of tomorrow
with no time to pack I laugh and borrow
a pinch of happiness rowing upstream
merrily merrily and you are there
waving hello catching the rope I throw
pulling me into shore one I don’t know
but it feels like a lovely place to share
the mingle of our hearts unlocked and free
as we find out what this future will be

dreaming the song
thoughts float downstream
writing the dream

hard push along
writing the dream
dreaming the song

week 246 ~ in my next life I’ll be lazy

with 4 comments

me.246in my next life I’ll be lazy
lose my agenda and dream more
let somnolescence o’ertake me
in my next life I’ll be lazy
smudge details lay it out hazy
and never ask myself what for
in my next life I’ll be lazy
lose my agenda and dream more

heart full of wonder
which way lies dreaming
clouds pull me under
heart full of wonder
what time will thunder
send the rains teeming
heart full of wonder
which way lies dreaming
