The very same night

Walking home again

Lurking around a corner

Astonishing hues

Autumn symphony

Blue purple red tones

Night sky colors as music

Empower my soul

What gets left behind

In the mad rush of the day

Bella’s paw

They are best buddies

Side by side, staring, sharing

an abiding bond

Blending in, it waits

Thinking, okay, pink and green,

I’m so preying now.

Happy 100th Birthday

Stone cold serious

with a warm and loving heart

Guiding, scaring us

Trying to keep us

from falling into bad spots

It seems exhausting

But he always laughed

seeing so much more than us

Now, I get the jokes.

He died too early

to know we are all okay

Dazzling colors

Defy the bone-chilling ache

Dance in the night

My heart is alight

swaying with the branches

moving with the wind

Breaking earthly pull

I spin off into the sky

yet floating nearby.

Watching dancing lights

I remember sleep beckons

I fly back to bed.

Get Thee Behind Me

Snoozing with Bella

Tucked at my behind each night

We roast together

Sweet little kitty

Does she dream of standing tall

Playing with Mousey?

Tossing and flipping

A ragged cotton fluffy

Missing eyes, nose, toes

Mousey will be there

When Bella awakes anon

Ready for a new day.

Away from it all

Just standing, watching

The tidal waters drift by

Forgetting briefly

Wishing and Wanting

Thinking about snow

A dreamscape comes to my mind

Winter wonderland

Autumn doldrums

Don’t forget to look,

all around us, color lives

to lift our spirits

America runs on dunkins

 

 

What would Whitman think?

Of the juxtaposition,

his bust next to donuts.

How did he get there?

Was the plaza once a field?

Now a lot of stores.

A search of his work,

led me to “America,”

A hymn to workers.

So much to be proud of

The joy in their songs gone, and,

Now, we sing of wealth.

Now, remember kids…

When handling a gun,

An adult should be present.

The war on sadness

War-weary engines

Filled with antidepressants

Will happiness rain?

Delicate blossoms

Though ephemeral in spring

Endure in our hearts
