POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

                                          REALITY II

 

Contrast the lives

Of the safe and the doomed,

The safe play video games,

The doomed

Struggle to survive.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

                                                                     REALITY

 

We are no longer

A country

Where the welfare

Of the citizen

Comes first.

I FALL BACK

The poor protest,

The rich fill their coffers,

Our society is controlled

By the 1%,

Greed buys politics

And controls our future.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: THE SNOW

I’m sure many of the residents of the northeast are now shouting a four letter word,

S***!

After a mild winter, a storm has arrived making life temporarily miserable.

I always dust off this poem and share it at the appropriate time.

This is the appropriate time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wrote this poem some years ago.

Every winter since, I drag it out the right time.

For those of us on the East Coast, now 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 & FLEETING THOUGHTS

THE FIRST SNOW

The scars are hidden,

For now,

But with warmth

The scar will again

Reveal the truth,

Lies can be hidden,

But the truth

Always wins.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: VAN GOGH

Van Gogh

Can you imagine

The beauty the world

Would have missed

If Van Gogh

Was on

Antidepressants?

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: LIFE PERFECT

LIFE PERFECT

The only place

Where life is perfect

Is in the heart

Of a dog.
