week 458 ~ transient

with 2 comments

transient
passing through
paths now bent
transient
most time spent
without you
transient
passing through

week 457 ~ treetops peek through my window

with 2 comments

treetops peek through my window
stark against the cloud-grey sky
ponder where did summer go

rain-drenched branches bowing low
silent birds still dare not fly
treetops peek through my window

dampness invades its chill so
penetrating here as I
ponder where did summer go

still time presses on below
throw off blankets heave a sigh
treetops peek through my window

time to start the day although
morning sunlight passed us by
ponder where did summer go

sluggishly though it be slow
life persists so we must try
treetops peek through my window
ponder where did summer go

week 456 ~ the future it would seem

with 2 comments

the future it would seem
is not what the past wrote
for life is not a dream
the future it would seem
develops its own scheme
and we should all take note
the future it would seem
is not what the past wrote

week 454 ~ my heart fell

with 2 comments

my heart fell
off my sleeve
you can’t tell
my heart fell
wish me well
as I grieve
my heart fell
off my sleeve

week 453 ~ like an old-fashioned photograph

with 2 comments

like an old-fashioned photograph
family faded by sunlight
we gather briefly here despite
distances for a snapshot laugh
-ing hoping to choreograph
the automatic timer on
the camera to capture joy drawn
on our faces salt from the sea
still on our lips reality
fusing us in time passing gone

week 452 ~ transformational light

with 4 comments

transformational light
opens a wonderland
amazed our words take flight
transformational light
tethered to stone in sight
yet beyond as we stand
transformational light
opens a wonderland

Week 451 ~ in the museum

with 2 comments

in the museum
time flows many ways
whenever we come
in the museum
it’s carpe diem
the best of all days
in the museum
time flows many ways
