Short


Short; I’ve learned that life is too short,
What are the necessities of such a sport?

Live, live, little by little,  enjoy it all,
Your childhood,  youth, adulthood,  cycled circle

Of flaws that turn into strengths
That raise you up to a pinnacle of breaths

That feel uniquely important for you not to fall.
The abyss below can be a starkly black ball,

Or a bright sunny day filled with fun and play.
Enjoy the rainbows that come after a rainy day.

Those days are infrequent,  transient,
And easily missed if you’re mired in your own dejected

Despair, whose darkness can’t be pierced
By the frivolity, fun, smiles, laughter of  living and dead.

Don’t,  don’t let that despair put you down,
Scare it away with your strength of will!!!!

Lover, Hater?

I looked upon the sleeping angel whose sparsely

Covered head in tufts of flyaway hair, place her

Thumb in her mouth, curl her index in her fine hair,

As she lays curled up around her bunny.

The bunny wasn’t as soft or as sly as she,

But he got around and needed just five minutes

Of rest before the ‘devil’ woke up and sang hymns

As she ran circles around him with great care.

Watching the merry go round of the joy and play,

The cheery laughter that I want to last another

FIVE minutes, as time lapses exponentially,

And we are never ready to see them grow, ever.

They grow slowly, then life changes and imposes

Its disillusionment and disappointments

That are an inevitable result of interactions,

Familial, social, peers, and business.

I wish that infant would stay innocent for longer

Not needing to face oppression, recrimination,

Racism, nor dicrimination which implode into a hater

Rather than a lover who accepts the other in compassion.

Cardinal’s Passion

What’s spring if not a rebirth of life, beauty, and passion?

The last as red as a cardinals’ feathers, fly

Into your heart, home, and nook with preservation

Of your unique humanity looking kingly

As you let your heart soar in the revelation

That life, flowers, trees, and shrubs all beautiful,

All colorful just like a spring sun that shines fitfully.

Leaden Heart

With fall comes a boisterous ball

Filled with wild colors, flaming reds that stall

Time and create a feeling that’s heavy in the head.

Worries abound: pandemic, school, health,..

Where to start or stop with the heaviness

That steals your breath?

Money, money, money, materialize and grow in the yard.

Grow into a thick trunked tree and seed me your harvest.

Don’t die out in winter and stop your perpetual

Rejuvenation of yourself, my family, and mine.

Without your harvest my heavy head turns to lead,

My heart turns to steely stone,

And my motivation dies a silent screaming death.
