tree branches

swaying in the warm afternoon breeze

spring tease

mid march

cold winds howling

winter not quite through just yet

wind whistles

outside the window

my cat sings in hebrew 

lost somewhere

in these

sunday afternoon

dreams

train speeds

through dark tunnels

the engineer snores on

warm sunlight

and flickering daydreams

a sparrow chirps from the telephone line

farmlands

once dominated

these places

now only

the blight of strip malls

to replace

the cornstalks

so much for progress….

peek-a-boos

through the morning clouds

plump robin

staring down

from the garage roof

we trade looks

a morning meeting

last fall’s pride

flickering starlight

while busy

chasing tomorrow’s dreams

bound

to this reality

now

Hope

Hope(Chant Poem)

 

With only hope to pierce this darkness

 

out of places, out of time…..to run away

with only hope to pierce the darkness

 

fight or flight, with backs up against the wall

with only hope to pierce the darkness

 

lone dissenting voices, lost in a vacuum

with only hope to pierce the darkness

 

a battle against indifference, ignorance, hate, and envy

with only hope to pierce the darkness

 

words, thoughts, and philosophies

with only hope to pierce the darkness

 

an impassioned plea, to open ears and minds

with only hope to pierce the darkness

Prosetry Fragments

 

I’ll

not forget her smile

despite the flurry of bad jokes.

Men still guilty of being boys.

At the table, a smooth  mixing and melding of times past and present.

A sharing of smiles and experiences.

 

Outside,

 the steady fall of raindrops 

on such a gray and stormy morning.

 

Not

much else mattered

 on this

mother’s day

black wasp

buzzing intently

what’s the transgression?

Prosetry Fragments

 

A

field of weeds

is

all that remains

as

the late afternoon’s sunlight

is

reflected off of a shard of glass

here

hopes and dreams

lie

unfulfilled among the

ruins

Dash

 

Hurry, hurry, ever racing to a never ending finish line.

Another moment of another day….the years silently pass by.

Missed, was the grandeur of countless sunrises and sunsets, in the quest for green.

The ratrace claims another…and another…and another.

 

 

cool summer breeze

a couple walking into

the sunset
