POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

THE SECRET MESSAGE

 

I know I promised to return to the art of writing, but thoughts and life interfere.

 

Life

We settle

For the superficial,

That is what we are taught,

What we are trained to accept,

But those

Who think beyond,

Pondering their existence,

Pondering questions

Their life does not fulfill

Risk madness,

Or perhaps,

True happiness.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

Reality

 

Why do people
Deny the reality
That does not fit
Their beliefs?

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

I have the dreams

Of a young man,

Denying my age

In my fantasy.

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.
