shelve thoughts …
for a while

soak in sky-blue mist,
watch early morning sun beams
soften life’s terrain,

levelling the ‘field of play’ ….

when summer is blue
i admire the calm waters
inhale moist sweet air
lightning storms may spark unrest
yet, the current flows easy

 

May i interrupt You for A Kiss?

IMG_3909walking by the couch I saw you sleeping
i could hardy keep my hands away
i wanted to tap you gently on your shoulder
“may i interrupt you for a kiss? ”

the walk was so exhausting
the breeze and sun combined
the hills were steep
and trees, so tall …
but you didn’t lag behind

because you sleep so soft now,
i think it’s only fair
i ask before i wake you,
“may i interrupt you for a kiss?”

i walk around real quiet
trying not to ‘wake you’
but doing dishes can get loud
and, the calls i have to make …
although … there’s just a few

really … you’re still sleeping,
how do you do that?
though i love to see your soul at peace …
“may i interrupt you for a kiss”?

 

 

At Bay

keeping the world at bay
beyond the nest where life thrives

on the outside, clutter and noise
uncertain of tomorrow
nervous of today
and sad of yesterday,
when you had the choice,
you didn’t make,
to leave the world outside when you came home
to you, yours…

 

 

 

Stuck For Breath

loose thoughtsunnamed-e1523472111907
in the here and now

no moment
to take a quiet breath,
find/hold truth
without a thought process that rakes the soul up and down the coals

soft, in-the-moment real life breath,
used to be
you could count on breath
to see you from one moment to the next
now,
not so sure they tell me …
if you’re stuck …

New Moon #fridayfling

A New Moon occurs when the Moon and the Sun are in the same Sign of the Zodiac. The Sun lights up the back of the Moon, making it unable, for us, (down here on earth), to see it.

NewMoon

 

It is the phase of the Moon to begin new projects, make important phones calls, write-up new proposals, and, initiate new endeavours.

 

Thought you’d get up early.
Flit the day away.

Sneak away,
before the effects of
Friday’s new moon,
got you movin’and shakin,’
starting that thing you wanted to do,
calling those guys you wanted meet,
signing off on that sale you made,
before reading it … just one more time.

But,  you (returned).
Snuggled back into bed.
Chased away the blues,
with a coffee instead.

Tossing and turning, the tides pulled you out,
pushed you back in again.
Sweeping through your thoughts,
each time, bringing clarity to the moment,
when the sun would set,
the moon would peak,
and you would start your day.
