Happy UN-Valentine’s Day


Say it ain’t so

Yet it is carved in stone

Laid to rest

A lifetime of searching

Has it been for nothing ?

Well I guess there won’t be

A need for cards, flowers or candies

Unless of course I get them for me

P.S. Please don’t show this post to my wife

She doesn’t usually think I’m funny

And this won’t help

Disclaimer: Just so you know, I do love my wife and I buy her chocolate every week just to keep her happy

Randomly Saturday – A Tapestry of Thoughts And Memories


“Gautama 2017” A woolen rug designed by Faig Ahmed – Currier Museum of Art

My thoughts and memories

Are woven together in the past

When I pull one thought, one memory

Others, that are woven

Interlocked begin to tug

The more I pull on one, to see it clear

The more it blurs what I try to remember

Pull harder

and it all begins to unravel

So maybe it is best to just add

New thoughts, new memories

And to look at the past as a whole

12-26-20


I step from the low light

Of a winter’s sun

Into the curtained canopy of a evergreen stand

Pausing, time for eyes to adjust

To the darkness

Where the sun never reaches

A faint sound of gently moving of water

I step to it’s musical tone

Where there is rock by the stream

To sit, watch and listen

Until I imagine what will be

The time of the setting sun

So I may head home in its’ light

A Falls’ Walk


A falls’ walk down a leaf- littered road

Met up with a couple who were walking their dogs

They said loudly as they got close

“Don’t worry, they’re friendly”

My mouth opened,

Before my brain had a chance

” I’m sorry, I wish I could say the same”

We all chuckled as we headed in our own directions

Time on This Planet


We Step Thru Time

Thou Time Moves on

When we stand still

Feet planted to the earth

As heavenly bodies

Spin and travel

In a dance of pulls and repels

Stillness

Moving at unimaginable speed

Time on This Planet

In a world of wonder

That is always around us

Whether we name them

Or not
