EMPTY CANVAS ( 2017 ) 2017/12/18

Lives are like the canvas all white and clear

That too soon begins to cloud up with fear

Add a hint of ochre as we all grow

With colors God paints into each rainbow

If circles or squares lapse into the breach

May they be beyond lost destinies reach.


As each canvas becomes part of the dream

Of what we’ve reached for or where we have been

Or the brushes get tired or weather worn

Take care we don’t all get tattered or torn !

The sun, it filters through the leaves

Its shadows bouncing off the eaves

Upon the rooftops round about

Seagulls and pigeons thawing out.

The frosty chill of early morn

Gives rise to wishes yet unborn

That men and nature be discreet

Learn how to share, reject defeat !



WHICH ERA ( 2017 ) 2017/11/10

It’s time for all to stop and think

Our world’s been trembling on the brink

The last thing that we need right now

Is someone else’s sacred cow

Another reason to resist

Or confrontation to exist.

We’re not so very far removed

From where our lives were unimproved

The horse and buggy were our ride

While sanitation was outside

And I’m not sure I can be pressed

To choose which era I like best !

I wish that I could tell you why

The grass is green and  blue’s the sky,

That clouds are white but sometimes gray

Which indicates a rainy day.

I really do not have a clue

If bluebirds all are colored blue

Or if a robin’s breast is red

What color could it be instead ?

I’d like to think there is a plan

That’s meant to help me understand

Why  colors are of such import

Among the many things we’re taught.

There are issues labeled  black and white

Does that mean everything’s alright ?

Imagine life as  colorless,

This world of ours would be a mess !

Oh how I wish that I might find

A path that’s safe and does not wind

The straightest road without a curve

Is more a choice than I deserve

For narrow as the options be

It is the route that pleases me !


CHOOSE TO FOREGO ( 2017 ) 2017/07/02

My heart flies high on silvered wings

As I embrace rememberings

For all on earth I have not seen

And places that I haven’t been.

Like memories forever lost

It matters not whate’er the cost

Some visions I will never know

Are those that I choose to forego !

The pendulum moves side to side

It is a somewhat boring ride

And doesn’t variate a bit

When in the rut where it does fit

And that’s a lesson to be taught

About this web in which we’re caught.

Sometimes it may be truly fine

When one decides to tow the line

However that does not preclude

A change in venue or in mood

For each must have freedom of choice

So they may exercise their voice !
