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

week 653 ~ as you fall off the edge of the known world

with one comment

as you fall off the edge of the known world
remember to reach for your sanity
or what’s left for the future’s not pretty
and you’ve been living indoors tightly curled
up in a ball of denial the loss
has made prognostication difficult
will your wings still work or is the result
of brain disuse disabling please don’t toss
jagged shards of truth at anyone fly
as best you can right now because escape
is essential to progress to reshape
expectations will take time you and I
don’t have so let’s just move ahead seeming
convinced we’ve not reached the end of dreaming

happily
unwoven
from what’s me
happily

second shot
worry’s done

week 649 ~ if we were to walk in springtime

leave a comment »

if we were to walk in springtime
through whatever wind and weather
simply glad to be together
steadily onward set to climb
the hills of doubt our only crime
believing we can find our way
toward a better kinder day
naïvely optimistic we’d
choose the right spot to plant a seed
saved from lost dreams and there we’d stay

week 648 ~ exactly when and how

with 2 comments

exactly when and how
isn’t known yet or where
we’ll see soon just not now
exactly when and how
we’ll escape and allow
life back in waiting there
exactly when and how
isn’t known yet or where

week 647 ~ not sure I can burrow any deeper

with 3 comments

not sure I can burrow any deeper
or keep my impulse to wildness locked in
break through the dirt honeysuckle creeper
not sure I can burrow any deeper
nights are still cold spring’s a heavy sleeper
close your eyes roll over wait to begin
not sure I can burrow any deeper
or keep my impulse to wildness locked in

week 646 ~ the seasons leap ahead

with 2 comments

the seasons leap ahead
warm days leak through the cracks
signs of freedom misread
the seasons leap ahead
but I hold back instead
not time yet to relax
the seasons leap ahead
warm days leak through the cracks

Week 645 ~ still here still dreaming

with 2 comments

still here still dreaming
waiting for the thaw
spring flowers scheming
still here still dreaming
future mysteries gleaming
though the wind is raw
still here still dreaming
waiting for the thaw
