JUST OUT OF REACH… a poem

Dark, Room, Office, Table, Chair, Lamp

I tore the pages

And threw them out the window.

Who would ever want to read this mess?

So many words of wisdom

Just out of reach

Evading, in fingertip duress.

Step back and take solace

All is not lost.

From time to time we all weep.

Then pick up the pace

In a fingertipped race

Putting words on the pages – then sleep!

SERENDIPITY… a silly poem

Smiley, Positive, Motivation, Laugh, Happy, Joy

Breakneck speed

The only way to go

Straight to the grave

Don’t you know

Don’t you know

~~~~

A real rabble rouser

Always stirring up the crowd

I bet his mom and dad

Wouldn’t be too proud

~~~~

Serendipitous

That’s where I want to be

Did it happen to you

That’s serendipity

~~~~

A Haiku writer

That’s how she stayed alive

The voices in her head

Always five-seven-five

~~~~

Searching for cessation

To this spot of poetry

Will it ever end

Yessir-ee, yessir-ee

EARLY MORNING HAZE

Who will save me from the windows

That tantalize my mind?

Or take the cool refreshing wind away

No, that would be unkind.

Seasons come and season go

As our gardens go to seed.

Where will I find latitude

When there is none left for me?

City, Man, Person, Solo, Window, Alone

Pull the drapes

Pull the curtains

Pull the cords

Close the doors

Let the sun go down

As lights go on

Chase shadows on the floor

Give me eyes

That maybe, I can see

Remembering yesterday

Then open all the windows

To the early morning haze.

…….

A cock crows in the distance

As another day begins.

A baby cries in her existence

One breath out another in.

And papas on the tractor

Headed to the fields to plow.

While I’m lost in this reverie

A young mind on the prowl…

Horse, Pegasus, Archway, Fantasy

Pull the drapes

Pull the curtains

Pull the cords

Close the doors

Let the sun go down

As lights go on

Chase shadows on the floor

Give me eyes

That maybe, I can see

Remembering yesterday

Then open all the windows

To the early morning haze.

Tea Plantation, Landscape, Vietnam, Haze

Spiraling out of control

Whiplashed – beaten down.

Never, will I trust again.

Damn this streetlight town.

Monuments to fools, they build

Hate, it fills the air.

Where’s the hope that once was found

Surrounded by despair.

Pull the drapes

Pull the curtains

Pull the cords

Close the doors

Let the sun go down

As lights go on

Chase shadows on the floor

Give me eyes

That maybe, I can see

Remembering yesterday

Then open all the windows

To the early morning haze.
