week 668 ~ since music’s best served as a team sport

leave a comment »

since music’s best served as a team sport
don’t forget friends in isolation
dream of a time we’ll freely consort
since music’s best served as a team sport
and playing alone’s a last resort
or a prelude for contemplation
since music’s best served as a team sport
don’t forget friends in isolation

week 600 ~ things you miss but you never

with one comment


things you miss but you never
thought alot about before
lost hope it’s not forever

hugs handshakes or the corner
coffee-and-ice-cream-cone store
things you miss but you never

went without old friends’ laughter
through a wide-open back door
lost hope it’s not forever

isolation seems to blur
visions of what’s at the core
things you miss but you never

thought would disappear sever
ties meet on zoom sweep the floor
lost hope it’s not forever

though sadness pulls you under
be proud you didn’t ignore
things you miss but you never
lost hope it’s not forever

week 485 ~ winter drags its chilly fingers

with one comment

winter drags its chilly fingers
‘cross the map of light returning
isolation darkness lingers

here no feathered warbling singers
disturb landscapes stark with yearning
winter drags its chilly fingers

rays in hand the sun would fling hers
out to free the frozen burning
isolation darkness lingers

poisoned ice thorns fatal stingers
pierce the heart of warmth unswerving
winter drags its chilly fingers

dreaming of change anything spurs
illogical hopes of spurning
isolation darkness lingers

our pleas in vain springtime defers
patience a lesson we’re learning
winter drags its chilly fingers
isolation darkness lingers
