week 619 ~ as the neighbors too loudly conversing

with 2 comments

as the neighbors too loudly conversing
and leaf blowers sing their songs of autumn
the days grow shorter and time reversing
steps away to make a call just a crumb
of silence a moment is all I seek
to rest my mind stop my ears from hearing
the lies that cause me angst for future’s bleak
warning won’t be drowned out by noise fearing
the worst won’t hold it back looking askance
at time won’t reinstate its old routine
helicopters roaring in the distance
sirens portend chaos sadness unseen
oh to hear nothing but wind through the leaves
a breath of solace as tomorrow grieves

week 399 ~ bring on the noise

me.399bring on the noise
let the fun in
so many toys
bring on the noise
two little boys
one happy din
bring on the noise
let the fun in

week 191 ~ ribbon of techno clefts the night

with 4 comments

ribbon of techno clefts the night
crushing sleep where will I find my
wits hiding when the morning sky
rides the arching highway of light
down from the impatient sun might
I recoup sanity in time
to devise a plan then when I’m
perhaps a tad less exhausted
my future not this star-crossed bed
cowering in a fortress of rhyme
