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

week 295 ~ wear life don’t keep it for best

with 2 comments

me.295wear life don’t keep it for best
things just make more sense that way
beautiful moments arrest
wear life don’t keep it for best
dive in grab some scare the rest
off wishing won’t make them stay
wear life don’t keep it for best
things just make more sense that way

week 287 ~ as weeping willows turn to green

with 2 comments

me.286as weeping willows turn to green
my heart leaps up embracing spring
colors and flowers seem to bring
a hopefulness I need to lean
on with the future unforeseen
I breathe in deeply and then turn
back to the tasks at hand I yearn
to break free sometimes yet structure
sustains me much as music’s pure
joy comes mixed with lessons to learn

week 285 ~ as life’s length is uncertain for us all

with 2 comments

me.285as life’s length is uncertain for us all
we bleed and cry then laugh and feel the ground
beneath our feet still gladly standing tall
and if we were to fall right now the sound
would echo in a thousand hearts nay more
the ripples of our life extending on
beyond the pile of troubles at our door
beyond the dark of midnight to a dawn
of clearer understanding if not hope
bound by the ties of friendship if not love
uncertain as our reach exceeds our scope
disarmed by acts of kindness heartache of
the abyss thankfully still matters less
than the exquisite joy of humanness

week 284 ~ sun through the window

with 2 comments

me.284sun through the window
respite for a day
caught in its halo
sun through the window
golden intense glow
blink cares melt away
sun through the window
respite for a day

week 260 ~ I know that Mona Lisa smile

with 7 comments

me.260I know that Mona Lisa smile
one corner up the other still
unsure deciding if it will
let joy sing out or wait awhile
savor the moment to beguile
time but when the corners begin
to slide apart and discipline
succumbs to delight well you’ll see
it’s less mysterious merely
DaVinci’s prelude to a grin

week 258 ~ love without over-thinking

with 4 comments

me.258love without over-thinking
throw all your stars at the moon
stare straight ahead unblinking
love without over-thinking
follow the laughter wink sing
such a happy little tune
love without over-thinking
throw all your stars at the moon
