                                                               Symphony at Dusk

the sun lays her head

upon broad earthly shoulders

as the night maestro

ushers in the starry notes

grazioso for our eyes

For John Coyote with love & respect

for understanding. 

May you find your peace.

Simplicity
(My Bouquet of wisdom)

tiny seeds of life
that have taken root
give me a
simple pleasure
that only goes
to show
how easy to please
i have become in my life
with the smallest bouquet
of wildflowers
hand picked
for good measure.

Nightfall Vis-à-vis

  Nightfall Vis-à-vis

They tower over us

standing tall reflectively

shimmering lucid in their

crème de la crème

emerald leafed sequins

waving when dog day breezes

rustle their feathery plumage

silently watching us

as we come and go

keeping everything they see and hear

an unspeakable secret

for only them in the darkness of night

to whisper sharing amongst

the stars that sparkle

the creatures that roam

themselves and anybody else

who wants to be in the know.

Spring Fashion Show

white diamond studded blossoms

sparkle their budding presence

bursting against

“I miss my baby blues” skies

with leaves of spring’s promise

as she unfolds her beauty

right before our

love of color

hungry eyes.

Satisfying us with sweet reprieve

winter has finally

released us of her

incredible infinite grasp…

Life’s Hard Luck Lesson Plan

Life’s Hard Luck Lesson Plan…

People walk by me every day

some sneer and complain

“He brought this all on himself”

in their politically self-righteous,

judgmental tone

while others politely smirk

“Thank God, that’s him, not me.”

continuing on their way to work

sipping their latte’s,

fancy mochas

and freshly brewed coffees

puffing on cigarettes

exchanging small talk

unaffected by the fact

that I once taught

took pride in that fact

I knew all my students

by their first names

now I only see their faces

in the people who in turn

look down upon me

with pained expressions

never knowing what quite to say

to the old man surrounded by bags

on the park bench today

but I’ll continue to remind them

surrounded by the only evidence

i exist, therefore I am

just like you,

this wasn’t my life lesson plan

i too had dreams, loved hard,

often and well

played frequent, took risks

but fell harder then ever

and it hurt like hell.

Now I’ve fallen off the radar,

choosing to snuff out

all the bright lights

but I shall remain vigilant

to the bitter end teaching you

another cold, hard fact of life.
