week 672 ~ a time to think about

leave a comment »

a time to think about
how the world spins today
a time to blot dreams out

a time to cry to shout
hard to refrain they say
a time to think about

this mess but my hideout
beckons don’t go that way
a time to blot dreams out

easier to hide from doubt
when the future’s in play
a time to think about

nothing a news blackout
would work hold facts at bay
a time to blot dreams out

I am too small to rout
disaster push away
a time to think about
a time to blot dreams out

week 670 ~ is there nothing to be done

leave a comment »

is there nothing to be done
is there nowhere to be glad
we have let the vandals run
is there nothing to be done
to head off the destruction
of the safety we once had
is there nothing to be done
is there nowhere to be glad

week 669~ as if waiting for the moon rise

with 2 comments

as if waiting for the moon rise
now birds fall silent insects hum
themselves to sleep dreaming of sun
watching the forest through their eyes
we welcome evening in disguise
troubles dropping by the wayside
lost in fallen acorns they hide
with past disappointments as if
they realize a single wiff
of doubt could shove our peace aside

week 668 ~ since music’s best served as a team sport

leave a comment »

since music’s best served as a team sport
don’t forget friends in isolation
dream of a time we’ll freely consort
since music’s best served as a team sport
and playing alone’s a last resort
or a prelude for contemplation
since music’s best served as a team sport
don’t forget friends in isolation

week 665 ~ time stops so we move on

with 2 comments

time stops so we move on
separately ahead
accounts now overdrawn

sleepy dreams on the lawn
should be a sign instead
time stops so we move on

but where can it have gone
unheeded or misread
accounts now overdrawn

the mist of quiet dawn
o’er takes us still in bed
time stops so we move on

conclusions have been drawn
worrying a loose thread
accounts now overdrawn

desperation’s upon
us have we been misled
time stops so we move on
accounts now overdrawn

week 664 ~ now happily

with 2 comments

now happily
back in kid-dom
cool things to see
now happily
immersed we three
don’t pause near glum
now happily
back in kid-dom

week 663 ~ in the company

with 2 comments

in the company
of those I love well
of my family

I rest happily
for this brief sweet spell
in the company

of laughter silly
games red zinfandel
of my family

I dream most nights see
their faces to dwell
in the company

of those who love me
too a carousel
of my family

that twirls in 3-D
beyond our farewell
in the company
of my family

week 662~ dizzy with choices

with 2 comments

dizzy with choices
frazzled by freedom
finding our voices
dizzy with choices
summer rejoices
still we are struck dumb
dizzy with choices
frazzled by freedom
