week 504 ~ life is finally slowing down

with 2 comments

life is finally slowing down
leaving room for mad to poke through
inspiration that might undo
the loss of dreams that have been drowned
in some ocean of false renown
what’s important what you intend
is nearer days are longer bend
time to your purpose find a new
road ahead but move quickly to
sidestep the thought you might offend

week 489 ~ there was a moment

with 2 comments

there was a moment
for restitution
but it came and went

before time present
lives set in motion
there was a moment

one magnificent
manifestation
but it came and went

mixed messages sent
amidst confusion
there was a moment

I couldn’t prevent
hardly worth mention
but it came and went

and now I resent
the dream’s implosion
there was a moment
but it came and went

week 454 ~ my heart fell

with 2 comments

my heart fell
off my sleeve
you can’t tell
my heart fell
wish me well
as I grieve
my heart fell
off my sleeve

week 446 ~ the glass still half full

with 2 comments

the glass still half full
I came home thirsty
Rio’s last riddle
the glass still half full
I drank logical
and yet conversely
the glass still half full
I came home thirsty

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 417 ~ while I was thinking about this

me-417

while I was thinking about this
it was perfect in every way
it seemed my dreams could never miss
time passed plans fell to disarray

 it was perfect in every way
cradled by imagination
time passed plans fell to disarray
life blinked and all were left undone

 cradled by imagination
it seemed my dreams could never miss
life blinked and all were left undone
while I was thinking about this

week 404 ~ deep water keeps rushing onward

leave a comment »

me.404deep water keeps rushing onward
under the bridge over the dam
ignoring the once-planned program
the truths not promised but inferred
from opportunities proffered
in a world that’s not all it seems
try as we may to hold our dreams
close time moves us ahead grasping
at branches on the shore asking
what hand directs life’s willful streams

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 385 ~ when the light goes out of the sky

with 2 comments

me.385when the light goes out of the sky
evening a rain storm something of
sorrow loss perhaps thoughts of love
you pause mid-gesture wonder why
you feel a shadow passing by
your soul leaving an unexplained
chill that lingers nothing is gained
without cost nothing of value
disappears without pain still you
proceed stability maintained

week 381 ~ when time has run out for one more chapter

with 2 comments

me.381when time has run out for one more chapter
a final tune another slash of paint
across life’s canvas when we can’t defer
obligations or wishes with a faint
hope that there will always be tomorrow
what then how will it feel to reach the end
and slipping past human grasp or sorrow
enter a place unknown where we can’t bend
events to our will or count on love to
keep us safe or offer up forgiveness
for the times we stopped believing in who
we knew we could have been will someone bless
our memory then despite all we’ve done wrong
and smiling recollect our once brave song
