week 516 ~ single out a moment to remember

with 2 comments

single out a moment to remember
from all the days that passed before you knew
how a sudden rain could douse life’s ember
something to hold onto to get you through
an unexpected smile comprehending
nothing can possibly make time rewind
doors close as long lost adventures ending
knock vainly hoping still oh nevermind
life speeds up at the end without warning
there isn’t time to make a speech of note
play one more song to lure in the morning
night will consume you whole that’s all she wrote
and when it comes where will I be waiting
ticket in hand still anticipating

week 504 ~ life is finally slowing down

with 2 comments

life is finally slowing down
leaving room for mad to poke through
inspiration that might undo
the loss of dreams that have been drowned
in some ocean of false renown
what’s important what you intend
is nearer days are longer bend
time to your purpose find a new
road ahead but move quickly to
sidestep the thought you might offend

week 463 ~ in what universe did we think

with 2 comments

in what universe did we think
we’d have time just to contemplate
the future rolling past we blink
in what universe did we think
we’d have a chance to stop and drink
in our success relax sleep late
in what universe did we think
we’d have time just to contemplate

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 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

week 450 ~ there is a scent of green in the air

leave a comment »

there is a scent of green in the air
breathe in and exhale leaving flowers
as you pass they bloom the weather’s fair
there is a scent of green in the air
a smile pauses to look lingers there
while joy transforms minutes to hours
there is a scent of green in the air
breathe in and exhale leaving flowers

week 423 ~ jump ahead to the edge of now

with 2 comments

me-23jump ahead to the edge of now
lean forward teeter the abyss
beckons but catch your balance this
is not your time to fall allow
fear to recede breathe this is how
we will get through believe defer
the nightmare won’t last forever
we will find some moments of good
-ness moments of grace where we’ve stood
our ground staring down the future

week 421~ while I was thinking about this

leave a comment »

me-421awhile I was thinking about this
all was perfect in every way
it seemed my dreams could never miss
time passed plans fell to disarray

all was perfect in every way
cradled by imagination
time passed plans fell to disarray
life blinked then they were left undone

cradled by imagination
it seemed my dreams could never miss
life blinked then they were left undone
while I was thinking about this

while I was thinking about this
it was perfect in every way
it seemed my dreams could never miss
time passed plans fell to disarray

 it was perfect in every way
cradled by imagination
time passed plans fell to disarray
life blinked and all were left undone

 cradled by imagination
it seemed my dreams could never miss
life blinked and all were left undone
while I was thinking about this

week 412 ~ I swirl my glass of calm

with 2 comments

me.412I swirl my glass of calm
and drink hoping it will
somehow serve as a balm
I swirl my glass of calm
obligations napalm
time that never stands still
I swirl my glass of calm
and drink hoping it will
