week 602 ~ birds sing build nests lay eggs plan their future

with one comment

birds sing build nests lay eggs plan their future
I hear them wonder what will mine look like
when it gets here this cruel limbo could psych
out the most optimistic oh yeah sure
day by day I’m following the detour
uncharted streets taking me from lifelike
back to life hold my finger in the dike
long enough to keep those I love secure
a sonnet takes control of something set
syllables rhyme scheme with a beginning
and end one forty puffs of words to get
through not that certain about anything
else I tidy up the thoughts I regret
and walk outside the sun’s there and birds sing

week 413 ~ floating toward the exit door take me

with 2 comments

me-413floating toward the exit door take me
far from this opera forever more
make me pack my bags buy my ticket soar
far as far as I can finally see
an empty calendar with days weeks free
to laugh write sleep hum I want to grab for
the brass ring to unfurl my dreams before
asking if they’ll find room to grow to be
ready for whatever uncharted course
might reveal itself before it’s too late
before the entrenched path closes off all
other options to explore maybe force
a new ending for my story if fate
abhors a vacuum catch me as I fall
