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

Holes In My Umbrella (National Poetry Writing Month 2021 #19)   Leave a comment

Getting soaked on my walk home
Because there are holes in my umbrella
Maybe it’s just a habit
For me to use it whenever it rains

But more likely, I find it comforting
Even as the years go by
It’s always here to keep me company
As I splash in the puddles

Merchant of Woe (National Poetry Writing Month 2020 #19)   Leave a comment

I am the merchant of woe
I bring my wares with me wherever I go
My goods are always to blame
Even when bought under a different name
The price is never a lot
At first, but soon it takes everything you’ve got
Pray you don’t see me around
With me, only pain and misery abound

Being Sick (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #19)   Leave a comment

Coughing up a cacophony
Body feeling achy
Lungs bucking like a pony
Knees getting shaky

Head pounding like a drummer
Mind getting hazy
Being sick is a bummer
At least I can be lazy

Simple (National Poetry Writing Month 2018 #19)   Leave a comment

A simple poem because I am sick
Because my body is being a dick
I’ve been struck with this nasty malaise
Leaving my mind in a cloudy haze
I feel I can barely think
It’s like I’ve had too much to drink
And so I makes this simple rhyme
To get a poem done in time

Punch (National Poetry Writing Month 2017 #19)   1 comment

It starts with the balls of your feet
Tough from walking on the street
Tough from carrying the weight of the world
Then it moves from your knees to your hips
As experience slips
From the beginning to your prime of your life
From your hips to your chest
‘Cause you’re giving it your best
Its your one shot, gotta make this chance count
Make your arm shoot forward
As you keep moving forward
To meet the goal you’ve been fighting for all this time
Finally ending at your fist
All this energy exists
For the moment that you finally decide to

Reflection (National Poetry Writing Month #19)   Leave a comment

Have you ever
Seen your very own face?
Think about it

You have seen
Reflections in mirrors and water
Photos and videos

But you haven’t
Seen it like we do
Like I have

And you won’t
But that is okay because
Neither will I

Moments (National poetry Writing Month 2015 #19)   1 comment

I love the moments I spend with you.
My heart fills with sadness when my time with you is through.
I’m filled with anxiety, but then
My world is happy once more when I see you again.

Man Across the Sea (National Poetry Writing Month #19)   1 comment

I often like to ponder, the man across the sea.
I find I often wonder, does he stop to ponder me?
While I wonder of adventures that he’s having on his own,
Is he wondering about peaceful nights here at home?
I picture lands at the world’s end.
He pictures dinners here with friends.
I feel so jealous of the man on the sea.
But I need to realize, he wishes he were me.
