Prosetry Fragments

Contemplating life

Smelling the air

Hearing the lapping waves

Staring ahead

at countless grains of sand

the beach stretches on and on

the birds serenade with their songs

from above and somewhere far beyond

the back and forth dance routine

the crabs have with each wave

we smile

words not necessary

this

the beginning of our lives

together

 (Recalling Honeymoon St Augustine, Fla 1999)

Prosetry Fragments

 

pausing briefly

to

listen…appreciate

the

whistling

wind

through the trees

sounds of early january

December 27, 2015(…a view from the E/R)

Outside the window
watching as the raindrops and snowflakes
take turns to tumble

So it will be

Outside these walls
as the slap of a cold winter wind
touches my face

So it will be

Inside

all of these hearts
we’ll discover any compassion
or even the slightest trace of humanity
as the nonstop ingress and egress
those with every..any affliction
huddle and bundle
suffer and smile

a full circle in the end

some are forced to accept

cruel reality
while others find
grace and resolution

in order to continue
others
to find

trust and hope
in complete strangers

If only these emergency room  walls could talk

Prosetry Fragments

One final

sunkissed afternoon

at the old farm

…..perhaps each

had their own way

of saying

goodbye

Prosetry Fragments

 

In the end

It’s only the years that seem to change

…Another exodus

…Yet another people trying to escape

How many more doors will be closed?

How many more times can these hopes, requests, dreams, screams, and pleas be answered with yet another cold……

NO!

Where the humanity?

Poetic Fragments

a voice

in the wilderness

 

muffled

in an

anguished cacophony

 

an alternative

a middle ground

 

willing ears…and open minds

 

just waiting

for

 

consideration

                                time

                                                    chance

 

it still waits……

Poetic Fragments

piercing this morning’s silence

an orphan’s cry
