week 677 [from week 1] a simple transference of radiance

leave a comment »

a simple transference of radiance
at the moment the sun hits the water
before it’s extinguished light together
with reflection a golden circumstance
that we await wine glasses held ready
to salute and in that instant we are
giddy with twilight the ocean calls our
names watching waiting darkness descend we
head indoors light within us laughing at
our good fortune to be here friends away
from all that is uncertain morning may
overwrite this feeling but we know that
for now we are strongly simply happy
and everything is just as it should be

week 630 ~ there’s too damn much trouble

with 2 comments

there’s too damn much trouble
let’s have a little fun
here inside our bubble
there’s too damn much trouble
laughter counts for double
smiles lift us everyone
there’s too damn much trouble
let’s have a little fun

week 339 ~ interrupting the droning voice

with 2 comments

me.339interrupting the droning voice
of reasoned response she shouts out
wresting the plot from those who doubt
the merits of making a choice
that starts with laughter fools rejoice
before knowing all the options
unbalancing institutions
with levity redirecting
history the fat lady will sing
despite lingering compunctions

week 323 ~ open the box marked christmas past with care

with 2 comments

me.323open the box marked christmas past with care
for childhood joys and missing friends you’ll find
with memories the lost-forever kind
that lie waiting to trip you up beware
or reconcile yourself to linger there
amidst unsorted photos of the mind
and laughter packed in odd-shaped boxes lined
with longing or regret for you can’t stare
them down reliably sometimes they just
wash over whatever happiness you
have since accrued there’s no way to predict
so pause until tears pass away then trust
tomorrow to sweep you beyond conflict
toward dreams love has power to renew

week 230 ~ for everything comes after

with 6 comments


for everything comes after
in this place of sad goodbyes
there will be room for laughter

take solace from your past her
promises were never lies
for everything comes after

so climb aboard the raft cer-
tain grief bleeds through all disguise
there will be room for laughter

as you stop make a half turn
and look forward with new eyes
for everything comes after

where memories at last blur
and dreams materialize
there will be room for laughter

just hold your loved ones fast sure
you’re sailing toward blue skies
for everything comes after
there will be room for laughter

week 203 ~ any day now my dreams will all come true

with 6 comments

any day now my dreams will all come true
well unless they never get off the ground
waiting for something I already found
once anyway I was thinking of you
wondering if you’ve really laughed lately
or if you’re simply marking time while I
jump at the moon over and over try-
ing to catch the future repeatedly
overshooting the mark who’s crazy here
you giving up or me always wanting
more frankly I’m tired of believing
there could be more that I’ll prevail and clear
sailing awaits but nevermind I trust
this letter finds you well my dear we must…
