How could this happen?

We have electric cars, Folks headed for Mars, Footprints on the Moon. But dang near everything is closed No more roller coaster thrills People are dying way too soon Coughing, with fever and chills. We see everywhere We must be aware Mother nature don’t care About footprints on the Moon. Alas we sit... Sign in to see full entry.

Ma Goose and Dr. Seuss turn loose

It happened late one night When the moon was bright And the Wuzzy Whirly Got all twirly swirly. THAT is when Dr. Seuss Romanced Mother Goose And since those times There have been broken rhymes. Jack be nimble I do like that Jack I like him with a back pack I like him on the railroad track Jack be... Sign in to see full entry.

The conclusion of an illogical extension

A poem forced A rhyme coerced What word painting Flies out of my head today? Lacy clouds wisp the air At sunset making Fiery angel hair Tangled in our waking. Contortionist words curl Dubious flags unfurl What if it all goes wrong? Driven by some misguided patriot’s song. Angel hair clouds see doom... Sign in to see full entry.

How could I not know?

As we climb life’s long hill We take it for granted that someday we will Catch up with those we used to know A renewed friendship in the twinkle of an eye.

Crawl into winter sheets The coldness surrounds A cocoon with no escape Slowly the blankets give back The heat they stole Until the cocoon is warm And you don’t want to leave The heaviness presses down Layers upon layers Keeping the cold at bay I remember once waking Under such a pile and seeing...

Shoe box scribes

In the corner of the closet sits a dusty shoebox. It is almost full even though nothing has entered that magic realm for too long a time. Envelopes slit open with a kitchen knife. Bulge. Folded paper holding sentences telling of memories as they were living. Now the mailbox sits forlorn by the side... Sign in to see full entry.

Old dogs and new tricks

Life constantly evolves bringing new challenges every day that we didn’t have the day before. Now we have to learn familiar tasks all over again and then again. Old Dog, New Tricks. It’s always the same. When the phone used to ring you just picked it up to answer. A box with a dial and a wire on the... Sign in to see full entry.

Death of a couch potato

A lonely figure lies in repose TV on, eyes closed Remote still gripped in a stiff hand On the flickering screen Lucy stuffs her mouth with chocolates Will it be me Not missed until the landlord Comes to harass for the rent Will be discovered a life Not well spent? The neighbors will say He was so... Sign in to see full entry.

Fall time

Patch of sunny blue Where have you gone to? Smoke curls Unfurls Turns the sun blood red Choking beauty. Crescent moon dips clouds And holds the rain back Another lightning attack Is in the rack Waiting for thunder crack A lonely figure Garden hose in hand Wonders is this will be The final stand....

Fires swirl

Fires burn on distant hills But here the chill drips my nose The water this morning Is froze In the hose. Nature’s cruel hoax As the season turns The forest burns And leaves litter the lawn. Choking smoke stings eyes Tears fall at the sight of charred houses Where once laughter rang out Nothing left... Sign in to see full entry.
