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 304 ~ look around this is where I am

with 2 comments

me.304look around this is where I am
within sound of a hurricane
underground where the brave remain
lost but found time runs on the lam
as dawn navigates the logjam
asking where I’ll be when it comes
following love’s fresh trail of crumbs
within sight of the horizon
questions obscure the conclusion
while tomorrow hangs by its thumbs

week 231 ~ the weather doesn’t know what time it is

with 6 comments


the weather doesn’t know what time it is
and midnight won’t wait because it’s raining
for they exist outside context like spring
and though we know they’ll soon be gone our wis-
dom never saves us from regret forget
those similes the ones you planned to write
step out onto the knife’s edge where the slight-
est breeze changes your perspective don’t let
Mother Nature scare you or Father Time
they’ve got jobs to do and so do you but
their parameters are more diffuse shut
your eyes inhale the sweet constraints of rhyme
daffodils are blooming and you’re older
good enough reasons for dreaming bolder
