week 438 ~ friends rescue us

with 2 comments

friends rescue us
when we lack joy
without much fuss
friends rescue us
superfluous
angst to destroy
friends rescue us
when we need joy

week 415 ~ when the fat lady finally does sing

with 2 comments

me-415when the fat lady finally does sing
will you be ready for what happens next
or lost in a maze of doubts lingering
be derailed by inattention perplexed
to find too few optimistic choices
looking ahead to the distant side of
now past your option to turn back voices
of others muddle the air breathe let love
place a cool towel on your forehead and dream
of a future without regret you can
find a way through even when the odds seem
stacked against winning the hard race you ran
hear her song know that possibilities
abound tilt your face sunward feel the breeze

me.399bring on the noise
let the fun in
so many toys
bring on the noise
two little boys
one happy din
bring on the noise
let the fun in

week 356 ~ when there is a dream to carry

with 2 comments

me.356when there is a dream to carry
I hope that I will do my share
to move joy around simply care
enough to let the right things be
change some and watch the rest run free
recognizing there’s a new way
to move ahead with grace to stay
bound by indecision is death
so I pause just to draw a breath
then grab my mandolin and play

week 354 ~ sing a song of everything

with 2 comments

me.354sing a song of everything
wrapped up with a crooked bow
joy and heartache life can bring
sing a song of everything
bees make honey though they sting
dreams are choices we make so
sing a song of everything
wrapped up with a crooked bow

week 343 ~ if we could always be laughing

with 2 comments

me.342if we could always be laughing
this moment when we resemble
the gods would not be time passing
joy wouldn’t need to dissemble

this moment when we resemble
the sunset over the water
joy wouldn’t need to dissemble
we’d be fortune’s son and daughter

 the sunset over the water
beckons us on swimming like fish
we’d be fortune’s son and daughter
at the horizon all we wish

 beckons us on swimming like fish
through these enchanted flowing streams
at the horizon all we wish
this time we’d salvage ship-wrecked dreams

through these enchanted flowing streams
the gods would not be time passing
this time we’d salvage ship-wrecked dreams
If we could always be laughing

week 341 ~ there are many dreams on the line

with 2 comments

me.340

there are many dreams on the line
today luckily most come true
no missteps past regrets we do
what we expected to we divine
our horizons sliding past fine
pushing beyond acceptable
to just as intended hearts full
of joy for those we love who are
soaring toward their distant star
fired by kinetic potential
