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

week 661 ~ in honor of father’s day

with 2 comments

in honor of father’s day
remembering lost refrains
that pass quietly away
in honor of father’s day
a smiling photo to say
he is gone but love remains
in honor of father’s day
remembering lost refrains

week 660 ~ just jump high

with 2 comments

just jump high
find the moon
pierce the sky
just jump high
don’t ask why
it’s too soon
just jump high
find the moon

week 659 ~ when I think about tomorrow

with 2 comments

when I think about tomorrow
when I dream about what’s coming
basking in the summer sun ring
turning time away from sorrow
I realize I need to borrow
from my equity of past joy
gather up my strength to destroy
fear to reimagine my days
whole and peaceful counting the ways
onward finding strength to employ

week 657 ~ the poetry of loss

leave a comment »

the poetry of loss
watching a life unspool
mere wishing cannot gloss
the poetry of loss
the angst you try to toss
the dread you never fool
the poetry of loss
watching a life unspool

week 656 ~ warm beach days beckon me

with one comment

warm beach days beckon me
as summer sun leaks through
ocean breezes blow free
warm beach days beckon me
and I can almost see
the world opening new
warm beach days beckon me
as summer sun leaks through

week 655 ~ the world of tattoos and a pickup truck

leave a comment »

the world of tattoos and a pickup truck
American dreams now riddled with rust
someone’s utopia sneer if you must
but where you grew up’s a product of luck
and what you believe shows whose words you read
we all still have parents and families
children we want to be happy one breeze
can knock us into a new path so heed
the little voice of doubt look through someone
else’s glasses squinting into the sun
being kind’s the best choice in the long run
perhaps there’s common ground before you’re done
look truth in the eye our land of the free
demands we all deserve equality

week 654 ~ here is a peaceful moment

with one comment

here is a peaceful moment
so close your eyes and dream on
don’t fret for where the days went
here is a peaceful moment
savoring it’s time well spent
from such is happiness drawn
here is a peaceful moment
so close your eyes and dream on
