POEMS AND FLEETING THOUGHTS: PAST GLORY

As I age

Past small accomplishments

Thought meaningless

Take on new life.

POEMS AND FLEETING THOUGHTS: TINY LIVES

Their ghosts rise

And no one listens

As they ask, “Why?”

POEMS AND FLEETING THOUGHTS: AMMUNITION

They buy a mass the deadly rounds

And no one seems to notice

The anger deep within their eyes

Mass death is in their purpose.

BLIZZARD’S RESULTS

Here in West Chester, PA we recorded a snowfall of 26 inches.  Thought I’d share an image of my car.

POEMS AND RANDOM THOUGHTS: SNOW

I wrote this poem some years ago.  I drag it out every winter at the appropriate time. for those of us on the East Coast, this is the right time.

This poem was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s, The Bells.

 

THE SNOW

 

 

 

See the delicate snowflakes fall,

Falling, falling, falling.

Whitening the earth, awaiting below,

Falling, falling, falling.

 

See the mounds of glittering white,

Building, building, building.

As they hide the ground from sight,

Building, building, building.

 

See the ceaseless falling snow,

Falling, falling, falling.

Will it stop, no one quite knows,

Falling, falling, falling.

 

See the drifts accumulate,

Building, building, building.

My longing for spring will no longer wait,

Building, building, building.

 

SEE THE DAMNED WHITE BLANKET GROW,

HIDING, HIDING, HIDING.

MY CAR, MY LAWN, ALL I KNOW,

HIDING, HIDING, HIDING.

 

SEE MY MADNESS, MY URGE TO KILL,

GROWING, GROWING, GROWING,

CROSS MY PATH, AND I’LL DO YOU ILL,

SMILING, SMILING, SMILING.

POEMS AND FLEETING THOUGHTS: LIFE

What is more important?

The length of time we exist

Or what we accomplish,

Filling our coffers

With gold,

Or leaving mankind

With the value

Of our existence.
