week 459 ~ solemnity of sacred space

with 2 comments

solemnity of sacred space
cool against the swirl of commerce
forcing thoughts to pause we immerse
ourselves honor this ancient place
of prayer and hope the fame we chase
fades we breathe and can simply be
for a moment here lost but free
to reflect allow gratitude
to fill us and in solitude
acknowledge the joy of beauty

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 402 ~ the world that exists

with 2 comments

me.402the world that exists
in dark rooms behind
closed doors light persists
obscuring time mists
mask a troubled mind

the world that exists
covered in lies twists
assumptions hopes find
closed doors light persists

a voice still insists
the future’s not blind
the world that exists
is strong it resists
impatience maligned

closed doors light persists
bang on them with fists
balled your warrant signed
the world that exists
closed doors light persists

week 401 ~ moving forward

me.400moving forward
whatever’s wrong
missed vision blurred
moving forward
life undeterred
still sings its song
moving forward
whatever’s wrong

week 388 ~ once upon a galaxy far away

with 2 comments

me.388once upon a galaxy far away
in a wonderment where time suspended
awaited a decision still ahead
when now could not access the words to say
which door would open in the end which way
the real questions would be answered instead
of brushed away by the unseen splendid
possibilities of cards left to play
when the present becomes the past to see
the bumps in the road as problems well solved
with the knowledge at hand as life evolved
hopes knocked down dreams rebounded plans set free
some won some lost but most still unresolved
will we be glad then to stand where we’ll be

week 368 ~ a dream outside my window

with 2 comments

me.368a dream outside my window
hovers in sunlight too bright
I squint try to see it though

odds are it isn’t mine slow
-ly as if drugged I turn right
a dream outside my window

absurd as it is I go
over hopes fading with night
I squint try to see it though

it slips away I won’t show
doubt for it may still alight
a dream outside my window

iridescent in limbo
blindly beautiful in flight
I squint try to see it though

wishing never makes things so
and obligations obscure sight
a dream outside my window
I squint try to see it though

me 362strings attached
more loose ends
overmatched
strings attached
dreams unlatched
as hope bends
strings attached
more loose ends
