October 23, 2014 Imaginary Gardens with Real Toads/ Last Days of Autumn --dVerse/The Things I Miss Most About You

Last Days of Autumn


october             lifts her veil                       end of autumn       

mornings  cooler                       portal              to winter

sacrifice summer days                     long afternoons

landscape disguised                 red

                                                                   yellows

                                                                    mixed with ever greens

                                                          indian summer

seasons right on schedule                first snow

                                                          halloween

the smell of smoke in the air          morning fires

 i pull my sweater closer                   my mood

melancholy

The Things I Miss Most About You

Your smile.

Your voice.

Your kindness.

Your straight forwardness when asking a question.

Your special way of looking at the world.

The warm feeling I would get just thinking about you.

You were always someone to look forward to.

I don’t always remember the words we spoke, but I remember how you made me feel, when you said, “Love you Mom.”

Octover 21, 2014 dVerse/ The News

The News

i hear the news                     all about isis

                        and ebola
                                                                                    a nasty bug 
                                                                        that will kill you before you know it

i think someone is trying to make me afraid                     be very afraid

the weather has been sunny                       overcast today 
winter in on the way

some say it will be a very bad season
                        worst than last year

others say      not so much               perhaps mild

climate is changing
so much confusion

midterm elections are here             no one knows which way it will go for sure

seems most people are mad                        at the president
                                                                        and the congress too                        both parties

and the usual protests                     and killings                robberies and rapes

                                                  same old pabulum

maybe there really isn’t any news              seems like we have heard it all before

October 19, 2014 The Sunday Whirl/I May be Crazy but It Keeps Me From Going Insane

I May be Crazy but It Keeps Me From Going Insane


a seer                   and                            a seeker                                          I am

 find my way                                                    a path between the sage

shrinking from                                                                        reaching fingers

follow footsteps                                     in the                                          hot sand

the sun shines daily                                      exception                               rain

childhood in the shadow                                     knows no                                laughter

hidden                                                                                      in full light of day

adults remain                         prisoners to secret                                                

 deeds of others                                   

a knot               tied                 bound                                   martyr/ victim/ predator

the human spirit                    made of steel                       hard as a diamonds

through adversity                                           grows                or goes               

                                                                                                                                crazy
