Thoughts today 
On layaway
I could pay for the time.

Words of mine
Wont fall in line
Could you please spare a rhyme?

An idea?
A funny quip?
Any thought would be fine.

It would help
As you can see
I've misplaced all of mine.

Meditation (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #19)   Leave a comment

Just relax 
Nice and deep
And let the world drift by

Breathe in slow
Nice and deep
Forget the what and why

Pull your thoughts
Nice and deep
The pond is growing still

Now you are
Nice and deep
Your mind does as you will

Different Life (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #18)   Leave a comment

In a different life, could I really be me? 
Be free to live the life I wanted to?
The life I wish for?
Or would it even be me?
Living in an alternate reality
Am I just the sum of all that happens to me
The happenstance and coincidence
Or is it destiny that I'll be who I am?
Was I meant to be me, or am I sum of mistakes and double takes,
second guesses and messes someone needs to clean up?
Would I be able to fix my problems, or would they no longer be mine?
I guess I'll never know
But a different me might

Bubbles (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #17)   Leave a comment

We all float
Like bubbles of air
So fragile
So carefree
Catching the light around us
Until we go pop

Rubber Band (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #16)   Leave a comment

You can stretch it out nice and long
But don't go until it snaps
This rubber band can take a lot
Before it develops cracks
Take time to relieve the tension
Lest that become its default state
This rubber band can take a lot
But it can't do much when it breaks

Nap (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #15)   Leave a comment

There is nothing in life
Quite like the feeling
Of laying down
For a guick nap
Five hours ago

Growing Pains (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #14)   Leave a comment

Growing pains like little trees
Taking root in my deep tissues
Nurtured by time and bad habit
Branching out to my extremities
With scarlet red blossoms of life
I'm awash in the experience
The blooming gives to anquish
And makes me feel alive.

Grog’s Poem (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #13)   Leave a comment

Grog need rhyme
Grog do show
Grog take time
Grog go slow

Grog like light
Grog hate snow
Grog does fight
Not shoot bow

Grog not sweet
This Grog know
Grog want eat
Grog now go

Rainstorm (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #12)   Leave a comment

Feel the cleansing torrent of rain fall
Sanctifying all it touches;
Baptism by floodwaters.
Creative destruction,
Bestowed on mankind
As reminder:
We will fade
With the
Tide

Coffee (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #11)   Leave a comment

Coffee
Morning respite
Within my hands
Wafting pleasant, thoughtful notes
Peaceful
