Cyberspaced Out

Oh, to do something, anything
But, sit here doing nothing, emptying hours.
Watching the lives of strangers and dogs
Yes, dogs.
The dogs of unknown people;
Who will
Forever remain the same?
Nothing changes neither work nor life nor the sky
Which is weary with the water it carries
Like me it cannot rain.

A Thought On Mountains

Seas Caves

Neither the passage of time nor the wrath of the sky diminishes them.

Even the raging passion of the ocean’s rhythm retreats from their strength,

only to return

entreating

entry.
Devoted guardians they unlock the shade of twilight and welcome their sister,

 cradling

her in placid pools.

She is nourished and life begins.

ode to a stone

Having recently survived the dreaded kidney stone…I was inspired to write the following silly little verse:

There was a rock
It grew in me
It wasn’t my choice to set it free
It decided to move and used my pee
For days on end I took pain pills
My pee the color of daffodils
I was losing touch with reality
Turned into a medical calamity
In a strainer it fell
Yuck, what a smell
Now it lives in a jar and not inside me
I hope it is cold and feels all alone
If it had played nice
It would still have a home

A Poem about Self Esteem

Worth does not show itself
In sums or words carefully placed
Upon a page
It lurks in dark spaces
Under the stove or behind a door
Covered in the gummy filth
Of forgotten dreams
So sing lowly chambermaids with blackened nails
Dance with the chimney sweeps and their soot stained pails
As you pray for those who cannot see
The golden hue of heaven
Which shines down on thee

Writer’s Block…

Nothing nothing nothing but this blinking blinking blinking
No inking from my thinking
The poet left the room.

And….

And you will hold the door

Red Door

Red Door (Photo credit: Knilram)

And I will walk away

And you will stand and watch

And I will be afraid

And you will say good luck

And I will say ok

And I will be real brave

And you will say you’re proud

And my heat will beat too fast

And I will say ok

And I will walk away

And you will go back to bed

And I will fight

And you will not

And I love you

And you love me not.

Being Old

Tree limbs merry with song

And tiny bursting buds

Tulips will

Soon Bloom

In spring

As daylight lingers long

Mosquitos buzz about

Roses fill

Each Room

In Summer

Darkness meets the dawn

Colors begin to fade

Frost kills

Costumes

In Fall

Snow covers up the lawn

A misty world of gray

Winds chill

Death looms

In Winter

Crescent Stair

Crescent Stair

The second floor landing of The Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  The heat of late summer melting us, we escaped through a window and found ourselves on a dark winding staircase.  We noticed a small bench tucked neatly into the background and took full advantage of its perspective.
