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

God Is Awake

.

“Have courage for the

great sorrows of life and

patience for the small ones;

and when you have laboriously

accomplished your daily task,

go to sleep in peace.

God is awake.”

.

~ Victor Hugo

finished

finally done

was completely over

t’s crossed, I’s dotted

accomplished

the harvest complete

and ready for Thanksgiving

fall foliage on fire

Poem:

.

whatever did I do
I thought I was being nice to you
maybe you didn’t hear me right
I’m supposed to be your white knight

was it my tone of voice or the words I used
for whatever reason I am confused
please tell me what am I supposed to do
I will do anything that I must go through

don’t know what I did so I can’t say that I’m sorry
I’m chasing big game emotions like I was on a safari
to play your guessing game I am requesting a hint
maybe it’s something that rhymes with peppermint

could be that I forgot to take out the trash
we needed milk, I forgot to leave you the cash
did I strand the kids at the soccer field
I quit, too many landmines on this battlefield

she confessed there was no reason for her blowup
for her the best part was to kiss and make up
