week 670 ~ is there nothing to be done

leave a comment »

is there nothing to be done
is there nowhere to be glad
we have let the vandals run
is there nothing to be done
to head off the destruction
of the safety we once had
is there nothing to be done
is there nowhere to be glad

week 646 ~ the seasons leap ahead

with 2 comments

the seasons leap ahead
warm days leak through the cracks
signs of freedom misread
the seasons leap ahead
but I hold back instead
not time yet to relax
the seasons leap ahead
warm days leak through the cracks

week 633 ~ we’re tourists at the pandemic

with 2 comments

we’re tourists at the pandemic
staying safe at home while we are
cut off from what where who those far
away we can’t tell which one’s sick
or might be so we try to pick
a direction without thinking
walk straight ahead never blinking
lost without true maps to guide us
through we’re safe they say what’s the fuss
while all around boats keep sinking

week 628 ~ dreaming of Cadiz

with 4 comments

dreaming of Cadiz
somewhere far from here
after what now is
dreaming of Cadiz
umbrella drinks fizz
there is less to fear
dreaming of Cadiz
somewhere far from here

week 615 ~ seven minutes past midnight

with 3 comments

seven minutes past midnight
incoming long-distance call
just turned off the bedside light
seven minutes past midnight
loud ring heart pounds fears ignite
unknown dangers could befall
seven minutes past midnight
incoming long-distance call

week 608 ~ believe them unless

with 2 comments

believe them unless
you refuse to see
fear might be timeless

it’s anyone’s guess
no wishes come free
believe them unless

you’ve strength to address
fate’s trajectory
fear might be timeless

if still through this mess
roads lead to safety
believe them unless

you’re denied access
by uncertainty
fear might be timeless

hopes keen in distress
sacred possibly
believe them unless
fear might be timeless

week 599 ~ If I may ask a question of the world

with one comment

If I may ask a question of the world
how much can we all take collectively
how many deaths will be too many we
must reach a breaking point somewhere fate hurled
insurmountable disease time unfurled
weaknesses in our defenses to see
the underpinnings of society
fail abjectly unprotected souls curled
up into balls of fear when there are no
answers yes we can be distracted by
tv shows and graphs of statistics so
flimsily grasping the silent reply
of numbers of projections we can’t go
on until some truth unseats the big lie

week 529 ~ take me for a ride in your car

with one comment

take me for a ride in your car
drive us right the heck out of here
hit the road highway gravel tar
take me for a ride in your car
on to forever at least far
enough to outrun all our fear
take me for a ride in your car
drive us right the heck out of here

week 472 ~ once upon a blameless fear

with one comment

once upon a blameless fear
when the worst could still be real
when the future looms unclear
once upon a blameless fear
we hold tight to all that’s dear
wait for someone else’s deal
once upon a blameless fear
when the worst could still be real

week 423 ~ jump ahead to the edge of now

with 2 comments

me-23jump ahead to the edge of now
lean forward teeter the abyss
beckons but catch your balance this
is not your time to fall allow
fear to recede breathe this is how
we will get through believe defer
the nightmare won’t last forever
we will find some moments of good
-ness moments of grace where we’ve stood
our ground staring down the future
