week 629 ~ as the seasons are all a kerfuffle

with 2 comments

as the seasons are all a kerfuffle
we become tourists in our own backyards
umbrella drinks in November muffle
election confusion sending postcards
back to summer waiting for early snow
we keep gloves sneakers umbrellas ready
when the future says maybe where should we go
stark changes leave us bewildered heady
fumes of too late rend us dizzy stalled here
asking the path forward what we can do
in the face of disaster when we all fear
regretting decisions please tell us who
knows how this will all work out in the end
will nature undone still have time to mend

week 367 ~ whatever is going wrong

with 2 comments

me.367whatever is going wrong
there will always be beauty
a falling leaf a new song
whatever is going wrong
can be held at bay as long
as you look around and see
whatever is going wrong
there will always be beauty

week 358 ~ gathered in a wilted bouquet

with 2 comments

me.357gathered in a wilted bouquet
dropping petals moments of grace
a still life looking for a place
to bloom again for who can say
the laws of natural decay
apply to dreams in a future
changing underfoot to be sure
is to be mistaken to doubt
is safer to figure stuff out
is the goal but never the cure
