Sun near down
light soothing
humidity softening sound
crickets test heat
lightning bugs charge
moths cruise light bars
for mad dash of fire
I creep to sleep
lick my wounds
rewind bind
lose hounds of time
in dream mind
where Magic still abounds
like ancient burial grounds
raining rainbows in curved air
prism all around

~ ~ ~

Weather’s getting more extreme
so are people
guess which one wins

~ ~ ~

Rooster crows night away
rooster crows break of day
rooster crows

~ ~ ~

Weighing would
of could and should
with is

~ ~ ~

I’m copal
she’s frankincense
we sweet smoke rising

~ ~ ~

Another fine day done
began in beauty
no ending disaster

~ ~ ~

One more waiting room
another wait
another weight

~ ~ ~

A little light lurking
in the corner behind the plant
darkness rolling round

My life plan
was: work, hope for success
now: endure until death

Frowning world out there
I smile within
step by day by year by life

Mining the mundane

~ ~ ~

Moral of the story —
there’s beer and wine beauty
and the morning after mirror

~ ~ ~

Sitting silent in the dark
me and the missus
rocking slowly with
the clicking of the clocks
the fireplace flames dancing
the sleeping dog snoring
the black cat shadow
leading us on
into an ever more unknown
of me, my loves, and Eye

~ ~ ~

It’s a race —
I endure
reality wears me down

Eventually
reality wins

~ ~ ~
