Aside

Winter whispers to these blisters

That I’ve worn into my skin

Pressing pencils, move prehensile

While I’m pouring out within

Deftly prying ice from sides and

Stretching out where I begin

Removed the blinds from sides of eyes

Attack in mind the white page spin

What has this world been coming to?

Childhood soldiers with no socks or shoes

Staring down the cameras, guns pointed at you

Nobody is safe when all the faith’s in fools

Manipulate the media until the lies make truth

Make the trip go easier

Let Expedia

Plan it for you

2

ok… I can get a little preachy.

Standard

Mindfulness

Threading time and sewing deeds

And sowing love like stocking seeds

Soon filling coffers up with life

Isn’t working wonders nice?

Every day you move from ground

And inside every action bound

Is that speck, electric spark

The separates the light from dark

What nurtures nature, trancends all time

And brings a wider view to mind

And seeing course across the blood

Doing those who’ll carry good

Inside of veins, your flesh’s kin

Across all time, on globe we spin

Just this one we have to share

For future life… Just please.

Take care.

For a giggle

Standard

Giggles going gallant

And panting with release

I’m leasing life with laughter,

For happy is my fee

And freely should you pay me

This “coin” breeds more in kind

Minting out the gale-ing

That stitches up our sides

I’m siding with the sighing

-So sweet that I should know

That loving life with laughter

Should make the living grow

Reminder

Standard

It’s only natural

Climbing up a willow tree

The girl, she slipped and skinned her knee

And smiling at the errant scrape

She swung her down and through path traipsed

Caught shining through the autumn sun

Her heart has flashed to what you’ve won

With smiling at-so tenderly

Her skirted form up in the tree

With not a judging face to show

Fostering affection grown

Another day, on picnic dine

Watching infant spiders fly

Laughing at their silken course

Her swelling heart drove in full force

And later on, she showed you how

To dance upon the swaying bough

And happy you should follow there

She-tucking flowers in your hair

Hid her heart among the curls

And that is how you wooed this girl

A little morbid

Standard

Broken cycle

Hollow tones are singing

Making sound of hallowed ground

And in my ears what’s ringing

Is the wrongness that I’ve found

For underfoot are boxes

Filled with what should be returned

Under lids with locks and

Removed from cycle earned

I feel my heart is breaking

As it pounds against my breast

Surrounds me-life forsaken

Dusty treasures, concrete chests

My bones can feel the wrongness,

Such a cold and bitter ache

This knowing that’s been long stressed

The circle’s set to break

Death’s to me no ending

There’s life among the bones

Flesh is fodder pending

Return to earthly home

Upsets me not, such feeding

Or breeding on the shell

When time has come for leaving

The form in which I’ve dwelled

Disturbing more-entombment

To rot alone-true death

Not musky new enwombment

For smaller creatures breath

This septic space I’m walking

Cries for breaking ground

The dead to me are talking

From under weighty bounds

I wish I could release them

Stir bones to fertile earth

But flesh un-rot’s been poisoned

And return would make it worse

 

 

One for the lullaby

Standard

Rain Song

Standing in my nightdress

Alone and watching rain

Ignoring feet gone frozen

On a sodden stony pave

I’m feeling sort of restless

But I often feel that way

I lift my face and bless this

Giving end to tired day

I’m watching sky for lightning

And the rumble-deep refrain

Standing under moon that

Has just new begun to wane
