week 228 ~ like running at a flock of birds

me.228a

like running at a flock of birds
dreams scatter as I jolt awake
and cower in the shadows take
all the time you need to find words
to say what’s not yet true as herds
of nouns and vowels serenely graze
unperturbed I in morning haze
stagger downstairs needing coffee
or a new life completely free
for expectations to amaze

week 214 ~ she buys a new bed

with 2 comments

she buys a new bed
for her brand new life
turn the page instead
move on beyond strife

for her brand new life
finally beginning
move on beyond strife
it feels like’s winning

finally beginning
hesitation gone
it feels like winning
no longer a pawn

hesitation gone
past history struck dumb
no longer a pawn
whatever may come

past history struck dumb
turn the page instead
whatever may come
she buys a new bed

week 94 ~ in a country beyond dreaming

with 62 comments

in a country beyond dreaming
I awake with sleepy pleasure
believing that I’ve found treasure
in a plot too strange for scheming
I don’t look for hidden meaning
all bets are off I’m lost or free
or one with everything I see
it just depends on point of view
for I’ve stashed all that I once knew
between regret and memory
