week 494 ~ we who once made history

with 2 comments

we who once made history
bow to the unyielding young
unraveling mystery
we who once made history
relinquish our dreams to be
the roots of their song unsung
we who once made history
bow to the unyielding young

week 441 ~ a world of music beckons me

with 2 comments

a world of music beckons me
I enter with my mandolin
and sturdy travelers we begin
our trek through many lifetimes see
the path unfurl its history
of jongleurs lutes sad serenades
courtiers barbers renegades
we follow hoping they somehow
knew that we would and somewhere bow
acknowledging our accolades

week 339 ~ interrupting the droning voice

with 2 comments

me.339interrupting the droning voice
of reasoned response she shouts out
wresting the plot from those who doubt
the merits of making a choice
that starts with laughter fools rejoice
before knowing all the options
unbalancing institutions
with levity redirecting
history the fat lady will sing
despite lingering compunctions
