Luddenden

The evening sun scorches the shade.

The trees, in their glade, are forced to choose;

Stand tall and brave - or turn to crave

the cool safety of the dusk.

 

Like soldiers from another age, they are proud and tall,

Defenders of nature with their all.

Their bark tells the story, of seasons full of change.

 

Frost. Ice. Mud. Heat. Few, then a lot... of peoples feet.

My Wishes

I wish I could have no troubling thoughts or considerations,

And that I felt only pleasing sensations.

I wish I could have more self-esteem.

And that I could live the loveliest dream.

I wish that in strife I could stay strong,

And that I could right every wrong.

I wish all problems I could correct

And all things in life would be perfect.

Sometimes I wish I could depart this...

Tornadoes

Not all tornadoes

      rip and ravage wide swaths

      across grasslands, the flat prairies

      nor deep into the wet pungent air

      of old plantation country.

      No! No Joplin nor Tuscaloosa, here.

                       These drop

                         bomb-like

                         from the

Bedtime

entry picture

Some produce from sleep deprivation...

 

Eyelids fall and so do we
from this rope a wishful me,
No ground to touch, no cold hard floor
fully circle, no breaks, so sure.

Or is it warm?
Does it cushion the smash?
Cover sharp corners, prevent the thrash?
Then there's the harness
stopping it all,
Those big icey eyeballs
Keeping you cool

I don't want the harness
I just want the fa...

The Cocoon

The curtains a cocoon

which I have outgrown

crushing me

though I dare not venture out

my wings maimed

by an internal eternity.

 

Some days they open

as the sunlight shines

and snow falls

yet it remains a parallel world

a door to an unfamiliar universe

remains locked.

 

Even inside plates pile up

like a porcelain possum

they pl...
