week 461 ~ there is no clear path ahead

with 2 comments

there is no clear path ahead
just closed doors open windows
could we but see where truth led

nothing carved in stone instead
hasty cyphers scrawled it shows
there is no clear path ahead

and where could reason have fled
critics strike a somber pose
could we but see where truth led

the future arrives with dread
hanging on lost in the throes
there is no clear path ahead

I trip lose hold of the thread
facts shift dreams superimpose
could we but see where truth led

now lies so easily spread
make order hard to impose
there is no clear path ahead
could we but see where truth led

week 456 ~ the future it would seem

with 2 comments

the future it would seem
is not what the past wrote
for life is not a dream
the future it would seem
develops its own scheme
and we should all take note
the future it would seem
is not what the past wrote

week 444 ~ with bags of cash and no manners

with 2 comments

with bags of cash and no manners
they stormed into the hallowed halls
where truth once mattered crass outlaws
bent on stealing our souls banners
proclaimed decency defunct curs
with stone hearts swindled elections
stabbed innocent expectations
for life and liberty to death
now we fight back ‘til our last breath
to bar the future’s destruction

the first line is a quote from Laurence Ferlinghetti

week 429 ~ farewell 2016 you

with 2 comments

me-429farewell 2016 you
don’t leave us better off happy
to see you go though what will be
is unknown still and scary to
kick you out loudly holler shoo
does give us some satisfaction
you took too many musician
composers left daft billionaires
to lead us as the future stares
down dreams at least we know you’re done

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

week 420 ~ as I reflect on all that I can see

leave a comment »

me-421as I reflect on all that I can see
knowing there’s so much more invisible
now but poised waiting down the road for me
I toast the kindness of grace my cup full
of life’s bounty as it’s turned out to be
and I wouldn’t trade the incredible
sirens’ song that brought me here finally
to accept time’s gravitational pull
for love desire sorrow even pain
have gifts to share treasures that still remain
as my heart ever vigilant dreams on
tracing the faint line evidently drawn
by music long ago and far away
its mystery anticipating this day
