week 186 ~ because I am still here I pause

with 10 comments

because I am still here I pause
to breathe the lilac-scented air
and wonder at its mystery there
are so many questions spring thaws
unlock no answers just because
I laugh and love with abandon
and believe in transformation
choosing contentment please don’t try
to warn me it’s but the storm’s eye
old winter has finally broken

week 179 ~ you give me back myself

with 14 comments

you give me back myself
the joy before sorrow
cleared dreaming off the shelf
removing tomorrow

the joy before sorrow
clouded the horizon
removing tomorrow
what I hoped might have been

 clouded the horizon
and so I couldn’t see
what I hoped might have been
evaporated me

 and so I couldn’t see
life drifted pain concealed
evaporated me
’til laughter truth revealed

 life drifted pain concealed
cleared dreaming off the shelf
’til laughter truth revealed
you give me back myself

week 89 ~ I want to feel like there’s a smile

with 46 comments

I want to feel like there’s a smile
in my shirt pocket happiness
in the five day forecast no guess
work about it when I speed dial
hope I want it to answer trial
and error won’t do any more
this time when I walk out my door
I want the full optimistic
package with me so I can pick
living happily evermore
