In honor of World Poetry Day

Hope

Hope
…it’s elusive

Progress
…it’s backwards

Belief?
…negativity all the time

Concern
…insults

Kindness
…out the window

Connectedness
…divisiveness

Love thy neighbor
…me me me me all the time

Education
…budget cuts

Respect others
…everyone is wrong but ME ME ME

Joy
…long gone

Friendship
…tenuous connection

Information age
…selling fear

Stand up for one’s self
…mob mentality

Freedom
….shackled

What Should Be
…the way it is

I never claimed to be perfect.
The flaws…so visible to see…
One among many – so alike…
Unique among others, standing so free

Standing proud – head held high
I am what I am, the one among the we
Maybe tomorrow I’ll be gone – will anyone remember?
But then: a camera comes by…and chooses… me

Watermill

Life force giving
Times gone by…
Water falling down
Water rising to the sky…

Days gone passed
Times slip away…
The circle goes around
Life begins another day.

Cowboy of the plains

The mystique of the old west

Gone not forgotten

Poetry: Black is the Night

“Black is the Night” published in The XZBT.

***

Wow, what an honor to be published in a literary magazine! I love poetry. I’d love to be poet laureate of something! How’s that for a goal? (One more goal on the list of impossible goals I’ve been trying to achieve!) LOL

World Poetry Day

Watching

 

Watching your fingers
Watching your eyes
You connect to the guitar
You evoke its essence

It becomes part of you
an extension of your body
and extension of your hand
a demonstration of your heart
