week 500 ~ old lady trees in their youthful dresses

with 2 comments

old lady trees in their youthful dresses
pink and fluttery you can almost hear
them laughing at their brief finery as
errant blossoms blown loose scatter clear
the fences float high on a lazy breeze
before falling to carpet the sidewalk
once a year lovely we wait for the trees
to convince us that warmth is more than talk
that the exploding newness of color
has grabbed momentum that seasons have turned
pulling us outdoors where new life will stir
pushing forth green shoots whose names we’ve not learned
yet beyond the fierce cold of winter past
we stand taller breathe freer spring at last

week 487 ~ an incantation for spring

leave a comment »

an incantation for spring
wait in anticipation
‘til winter banished birds sing

teeter on faith desiring
days of warmth blue skies and sun
an incantation for spring

weeks turn to months lingering
cold distracts all hopes undone
‘til winter banished birds sing

songs that catch our ear ending
snow’s silent insulation
an incantation for spring

holding on ready to fling
windows wide still frustration
‘til winter banished birds sing

we see them in our dreams wing
their way north our fixation
an incantation for spring
‘til winter banished birds sing

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

with 2 comments

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
