week 487 ~ an incantation for spring

with one 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

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

week 338 ~ I open my heart

with 2 comments

me.339

I open my heart
though it feels empty
tear reason apart
I open my heart
press hope press restart
as life preempts me
I open my heart
though it feels empty

week 331 ~ madrugada breaks slowly as midnight

with 2 comments

me.331madrugada breaks slowly as midnight
crosses to dawn the invisible line
that’s passed before you notice shapes entwine
with colors as the world embracing light
surrenders to beauty morning returns
daily its changes hard to register
in sunrise colder today or later
details of no matter for hope relearns
what it needs to survive I’m learning too
redrawing my boundaries to rethink
time perched precariously on the brink
of sweeping across night’s horizon through
to what doesn’t exist yet where I’ll know
the seeds of change were planted long ago

[madrugada is the time after midnight and before dawn in Brazil and Argentina]
