Loss

For certain memories 
time stands still
and for a moment
the pain is searingly fresh
The loss makes you realize
what matters most
An aching reminder
of what it means
to truly love

Stone

Adrift in the clouds
What are you moon, cheese or stone?
Glowing talisman

Line

Lines of a heron
Wily patience waiting
For breakfast to swim by

Neowise

In the soft early hours of the whippoorwill
The gleam of Earth’s temporary guest
Winds through our solar system
Its furtive tail rising above the tree tops
Hazy at first but growing more luminous by the minute
A race against the very sun that gives it measure
Your awe inspiring journey to places only imagined
Now the making of a magical morning for this earthling
And as you fade into the dayspring I bid farewell
-See you again in 6800 years

Ball of dust and ice
Hurtling through space and time
Another comet tale

Peripatetic

Peripatetic heart
Looking for answers
In water ripples

Transitions

Life’s transitions
Freedom from this mortal world
Tears role down my face

Winds of Change

Seeds of love scattered
Blown by winds of emotion
Clouds of teargas

All we have
Is a few short minutes
To be sons and daughters
Fathers and mothers
Friends and lovers
There is no color
No race
No nation
Only humanity
Let us help each other
To live our best lives
In peace and compassion

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #235: Rant!

Truth is Black and White

I can’t breath

The presence of mind
To set the world on fire
Nothing left to lose

White
House afire
Hot with hate
Washed in vainglorious jactitation
Privilege
