week 630 ~ there’s too damn much trouble

with 2 comments

there’s too damn much trouble
let’s have a little fun
here inside our bubble
there’s too damn much trouble
laughter counts for double
smiles lift us everyone
there’s too damn much trouble
let’s have a little fun

week 629 ~ as the seasons are all a kerfuffle

with 2 comments

as the seasons are all a kerfuffle
we become tourists in our own backyards
umbrella drinks in November muffle
election confusion sending postcards
back to summer waiting for early snow
we keep gloves sneakers umbrellas ready
when the future says maybe where should we go
stark changes leave us bewildered heady
fumes of too late rend us dizzy stalled here
asking the path forward what we can do
in the face of disaster when we all fear
regretting decisions please tell us who
knows how this will all work out in the end
will nature undone still have time to mend

week 628 ~ dreaming of Cadiz

with 4 comments

dreaming of Cadiz
somewhere far from here
after what now is
dreaming of Cadiz
umbrella drinks fizz
there is less to fear
dreaming of Cadiz
somewhere far from here

week 268 ~ gripping the steering wheel tighter

with 2 comments

gripping the steering wheel tighter
surrounded by dark and worry
is it time to pause or hurry
the future’s unclear and lighter
days could lie ahead a writer
could plan a path through who can say
all the pieces are falling stay
alert don’t let your chances go
if you dream it it can be so
now’s not time to throw hope away

week 267 ~ it’s hard to leave

with 2 comments

it’s hard to leave
but time to go
you’d best believe
it’s hard to leave
and yes I’ll grieve
loving them so
it’s hard to leave
but time to go

week 266 ~ where there is love and family

with 4 comments

where there is love and family
there we can walk ahead with grace
acceptance with humility

though lacking in stability
progressing at a stumbling pace
where there is love and family

there’s no impossibility
or obstacle we cannot face
acceptance with humility

knowing we’ll never truly see
what lies ahead we find our place
where there is love and family

owning our culpability
granting ourselves some breathing space
acceptance with humility

as we lay down our burdens free
of tears for all we can’t replace
where there is love and family
acceptance with humility

week 625 ~ waiting on the edge

with 2 comments

waiting on the edge
of a murky void
got a bet to hedge
waiting on the edge
of a perilous ledge
avoidance employed
waiting on the edge
of a murky void

week 624 ~ the river of time

with 2 comments

the river of time
flows slowly at first
its reason has rhyme
the river of time
takes everything mine
what’s best and what’s worst
the river of time
flows slowly at first

week 623 ~ let me start at the beginning

with 2 comments

let me start at the beginning
again with a calm demeanor
the future expansive leaner
younger with a chance of winning
still in the 3rd or 4th inning
stars in my eyes heart on my sleeve
young enough to hope to believe
that time is truly on my side
lust unmasked with nothing to hide
and nothing precious lost to grieve

week 622 ~ music and conversation

with 2 comments

music and conversation
friends’ laughter days at the beach
alone here in autumn’s sun
music and conversation
we’ve missed our lost summer’s done
its small pleasures out of reach
music and conversation
friends’ laughter days at the beach
