week 433 ~ no one can sleep through an apostrophe

with 2 comments

me-433no one can sleep through an apostrophe
woke me up scribbled it down pondering
what the dream meant let’s do it inferring
action it’s my responsibility
ownership the women’s march where we’ve drawn
a line in the sand thrown down hope’s gauntlet
they’re lying still but we’ll never forget
the disregarded facts we’ll carry on
fighting for our lives as we want to go
on living them ownership and action
it’s time we’re ready they’ve gone too far done
terrible things but there’s still time to sow
truth’s words like Johnny Appleseed along
our way our revolution’s roots grow strong

week 424 ~ simply put my friend

with 2 comments

me-424simply put my friend
life isn’t pretty
truths you can’t defend
simply put my friend
will always upend
words you hoped witty
simply put my friend
life isn’t pretty

week 362 ~ down the rabbit hole

with 2 comments

me.361down the rabbit hole
hints of what could be
overshoot their goal

once the future stole
my dreams shamelessly
down the rabbit hole

as sirens cajole
ships crossing the sea
overshoot their goal

disappointment’s toll
sets nobody free
down the rabbit hole

hopeless to console
thoughts spin dizzily
overshoot their goal

erasing the whole
lies crash right past me
overshoot their goal
down the rabbit hole

week 313 ~ all the evidence points to yes

leave a comment »

me.313all the evidence points to yes
dreams hung outside a closed window
hover helium balloons show
the way ahead don’t second-guess
their destination happiness
is difficult to recognize
but take the leap you’ll realize
you’re there this time your heart has known
right from the start truth brightly shone
the moment you looked in his eyes

week 310 ~ as the river runs to the sea

with 2 comments

me.310as the river runs to the sea
and all round objects roll downhill
truth should win over lies but will
it in the long run will it be
strong enough can hope still carry
our souls and dreams rise heavenward
once we believed perhaps inferred
that all would be well in the end
happiness just around the bend
could lie or be a lie I’ve heard

week 297 ~ knowing without seeing

with 2 comments

me.297knowing without seeing
that there will be a road
and somehow believing
knowing without seeing
naysayers’ misleading
words won’t make truth implode
knowing without seeing
that there will be a road

week 252 ~ I’m walking on a wire

with 2 comments

me.253I’m walking on a wire
with too many spells to break
where’s the truth who’s the liar
why’s it always give or take

 with too many spells to break
I’m wrapped in expectation
why’s it always give or take
there’s never a vacation

I’m wrapped in expectation
remaining real through the hype
there’s never a vacation
excavating true to type

remaining real through the hype
it’s a challenge to be sure
excavating true to type
nothing’s tainted nothing’s pure

it’s a challenge to be sure
where’s the truth who’s the liar
nothing’s tainted nothing’s pure
I’m walking on a wire

Walking On a Wire – Richard Thompson, sung by Linda Thompson
