week 643 ~ woman who lives at the edge of the world

with 2 comments

woman who lives at the edge of the world
at the end of time the mother of all
who have lost their way forward hear my call
as I stumble my destination twirled
in the claws of defeat unraveling
while I wait and grow old without solace
no sheltering harbor here or safe place
to rest or hold fast always traveling
in circles asking why I can’t break through
grabbing hold of my own inner wildness
fighting to eradicate spurious
references to expectations to do
what I do well do best is all I ask
some opportunity outside this mask

week 321 ~ the goddess of fortune sits brooding

with 2 comments

methe goddess of fortune sits brooding
she’s realized there’s no way to turn
twixt a rock and hard place colluding

 I can’t fathom what they’re alluding
to far too exhausted to still yearn
the goddess of fortune sits brooding

beyond righteous anger including
hers and mine but it’s not your concern
twixt a rock and hard place colluding

 since we know we’re simply deluding
ourselves watching bridges as they burn
the goddess of fortune sits brooding

 and termites of distrust intruding
won’t be booted off stage yet though spurned
twixt a rock and hard place colluding

we pause having reached the concluding
stanza with no motion to adjourn
the goddess of fortune sits brooding
twixt a rock and hard place colluding
