week 551 ~ a small fragment of hope though unbidden

with one comment

a small fragment of hope though unbidden
lingers near the corner of my vision
not leading forward for truth still hidden
paints a future unknown how can I shun
the light imaginary though it may
be at this moment still waiting to shine
to illuminate the dream that won’t say
its name not yet the one that could be mine
or could remain stillborn in this climate
of uncertain weather harsh refusals
pound like driving rain I try to time it
to break for the door but life bamboozles
me at every turn flaunting its disguise
I teeter perplexed wishing to be wise

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
