No Time



“What is this life if, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs

And stare as long as sheep or cows…”


~ W.H. Davies



Elfje:          (Cinquain)



moon cycles

hot and cold

days grow and wane





thunder and lightning

afternoon grows summer storms

doesn’t cool the air




what value human emotions
many deeper than the oceans
where mental meets physical
what could be more paradoxical

avoiding the devils who cause angst
those whose cheer comes from the Bronx
seeking to hang out with the angels
like the rich who live down south in Naples                 (Florida that is)

let’s begin with the family who taught us
let’s hope they didn’t throw us under the bus
then there are those feelings for the opposite sex
for many it is gloom, doom and a terrible hex

should I laugh or should I cry
might I suffer from chronic dry eye
can I live a day without emotions
will my heart suffer a self induced implosion

what should I do if I cannot feel
my senses riding a big ferris wheel
no fear, my emotions and brain are on backwards
I’ve become an expert at cleaning up  afterwards

ME and the Boss
