week 477 ~ cold falls like a curtain

leave a comment »

cold falls like a curtain
ending summer’s long reign
flowers fade spiders spin
cold falls like a curtain
shorter days ascertain
we’ll soon see snow again
cold falls like a curtain
ending summer’s long reign

week 476 ~ magnets like words without meaning

leave a comment »

magnets like words without meaning
will either attract or repel
significant verbs missing tell
false stories obliquely leaning
as the hearer intervening
knocks them off course into a slot
unintended or perhaps not
for propaganda is wily
as it upends reality
and truth often misses its shot

week 475 ~ the spark of inspiration

leave a comment »

the spark of inspiration
fizzles out in damp distrust
by unclear focus undone
the spark of inspiration
lacks stamina to outrun
skepticism though it must
the spark of inspiration
fizzles out in damp distrust

week 474 ~ the most important thing is peace

leave a comment »

the most important thing is peace
of mind the kind that leads to sleep
at night where promises will keep
and you can let yourself release
control convince your brain to cease
obsessing trust in the moment
without asking where the dream went
knowing life’s still as it should be
where you left it close your eyes see
you’ve just paused waiting for intent

week 473 ~ as life swirls around I reach out

leave a comment »

as life swirls around I reach out
snatch blindly through the empty air
not sure what I hope to find there
or why I’m here and looking shout
and the words bounce back full of doubt
neither brave nor foolish I start
off no certainty in my heart
hoping action confers purpose
the path abandoned treacherous
this story heads for its next part

week 472 ~ once upon a blameless fear

leave a comment »

once upon a blameless fear
when the worst could still be real
when the future looms unclear
once upon a blameless fear
we hold tight to all that’s dear
wait for someone else’s deal
once upon a blameless fear
when the worst could still be real

week 471 ~ more behind than ahead

leave a comment »

more behind than ahead
drifting past midpoint
sunset bleeds river red
more behind than ahead
no option here instead
music in counterpoint
more behind than ahead
drifting past midpoint
