Sprout Wings

.

“Following dark winter’s strife,

a warm air rises,

teemed with life.

Birth, rebirth,

as the waiting die.

Old love, new love

sprouts wings to fly.”


― Phar West Nagle

fly

on wings

sail the sky

to chase the wind

soar

another season

the Creator does not fail

a time to adjust

.

all animals must adapt

man is not an exception

Poem:

.

paid the bills, no money left over
only dreams of being in the clover
contemplating what to do when I win the lotto
you just wait has been my motto

dreams with no action never work
believing in good luck is just a quirk
to put that cherry on the banana split
maybe tomorrow I’ll get around to it

what’s not to enjoy about living
glad to multiply the joy by giving
having a family by birth or by choice
just too many reasons to rejoice

do we really need a reason for being
what if we all were just dreaming
forget the questions, let your soul soar
know that happiness is rewarded by more

Mind*blowing

.

“When you make music

or write or create,

it’s really your job

to have mind-blowing,

irresponsible, condomless sex

with whatever idea it is

you’re writing about at the time.”

thought
in mind
grow a plan
what will make sense
idea

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

develop a show
bring the talent together
write a song and dance

plan to awe the audience
end it with a sing along

Poem:

.

what are you thinking of
what are you dreaming of
are you thinking about others
your siblings from other mothers

or are your thoughts always about you
maybe your are a Swift wanna be yahoo
does your mind seek motivation
or do you have a fixation with lachrymation*

poor me, poor me, pour me a drink
or would you be happier dressed in pink
isn’t it wonderful that we have choices
devils and angels, each with their own voices

today, do the next right thing
the choice that will make everyone sing   

     hallelujah                                  (a happy song)
