week 636 ~ stop being who you were

with 2 comments

stop being who you were
change into who you are
miracles won’t occur
stop being who you were
throw out the furniture
go buy a new guitar
stop being who you were
change into who you are

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

here together happily
we will close this old year down
joyful friends and family
here together happily
misfortune you plainly see
has left us nary a frown
here together happily
we will close this old year down

Happy 2016 to all you readers here as well!

week 326 ~ I have been waiting my whole life for this

with 8 comments

me.326aI have been waiting my whole life for this
and yet it seems as if I’m still not there
searching without quite knowing why I stare
hard at the future hoping I won’t miss
my turn when it comes no one understands
but me (and do I really) why striving
is in my blood I want so much to sing
a better song this tunnel vision lands
me in hot water sometimes like tonight
when an inconsequential story falls
askew on skeptical rocks (and recalls
the fallibility of words) still light
jumps 7 waves with me and our wishes
swim out to sea like brave drunken fishes

week 273 ~ winter’s cold

with 4 comments

me.273 winter’s cold
fills my boots
tales once told
winter’s cold
ends this old
year’s pursuits
winter’s cold
fills my boots

week 271 ~ the year rolls itself up

with 2 comments

me.271the year rolls itself up
you’re home don’t ask for more
drop your key in the cup
grab a smile close the door

you’re home don’t ask for more
when miracles appear
grab a smile close the door
stash your dreams some place near

when miracles appear
it takes time to believe
stash your dreams some place near
there’s no reason to leave

it takes time to believe
move on slowly with grace
there’s no reason to leave
inhabit your new place

move on slowly with grace
drop your key in the cup
inhabit your new place
the year rolls itself up
