From the heart…a poem

flowers
from the heart
left by a secret admirer
he was touched
and quickly put them into water

September…a poem

white braille paper on brown wooden table

September’s
such a funny month
it’s as if it has free will
the kind everyone thinks we have
it can be warm and sunny
damp and cool
green or colorful
we never know what September
is going to give us
but the days are shorter
the early mornings nippy
and no matter what September pretends to be
we all know summer is on its way out
and winter has its foot in the door

a poem about passion…

grayscale photography of woman ballet shoessome people
fall in love
not with another person
but with their passion
the thing they can’t live
without
if you’re a dancer
you have to dance
it’s who
and what
you are
ballet shoes
become your
footwear of choice
and you move
to the beat
you’re not giving up anything
by dancing
you’re just living the thing
that’s inside you
the thing that
keeps your heart beating
it’s that way for any artist
if you can
live a passionate life
become
the thing you love

Beware, fall approaches and the fairies are awake…a poem

brown dried leaves display

the falling of leaves
and the crunching sound
of footfalls
alert the wee folk
of our approach
they smile with glee
as they wait for their traps
to be sprung
laughing
as we untangle ourselves
never realizing
how close we have come
to being enslaved

Beliefs…a poem

Free Neon Signage Stock Photo

every now and then
we need to clean out
our belief file
see if things have changed
see if we still believe
what we thought we once did
we change
so why shouldn’t our beliefs
turn things upside down
shake things loose
and when you do
you’ll open your eyes
to a whole new world
and a whole new you

Humans…

grayscale photography of people riding train

each person
a separate world
living a separate life
that no one else
can ever understand
slaves to a system
run by the rich
for their own benefit
where
is the
rebellion

Humans…

Summers End

humans
always seem to want
or are looking for
something new
exciting
different
so we build things
go places
read
create
jump out of planes
swim under water
do
ANYTHING
to
find the thrill
that breaks up
the repetition
of life

Avalon…a short poem

Fantasy, Portal, Man, Statue, Rocka guard
watches over the gates
of Avalon
while King Arthur sleeps
and the world
waits
for his return

Superdog…a poem

Animal, Poodle, Mammal, Friend, Breed

being
floofy
curly
and
fuzzy
in no way
stops one
from having
strength
courage
and
dedication
because looks
don’t matter
heart
does

Neon/tattoo…a wee poem

late at night
in a dark alley
lit only by a neon sign
art is alive
and life goes on
