12-13-17 City Bird Swagger

Fist over fast food fury flip
Wipe out at the shopping mall
Shipping and handling included
Comic books and cartoons tomorrow

Listen to another commercial
Fall asleep on the couch watching TV
Never let them know your secrets
Thirteen mysteries of magical importance

Find a hidden treasure
Let's go to the movies
Nothing left to do but laugh
Pick me up and set me free

Reach out my arms to hold you
Dry away all your teardrops
Give you a kiss on the cheek
Tell you everything will be OK

12-11-17 Invisible Strangers

From somewhere else
In another reality somehow
Like ghosts walking through
Walls on sacred ground

12-10-17 Stranded On A Frozen Road

A long drive
On a cold dark night
Out on a snowy road
Riding into a frozen fog
Windows rolled down
The smell of wood burning
Somewhere off in the distance
The silver moon rises up
Above frosty treetops
Bitter chill temperature dip
Drops into a blizzard
As our car runs out of gas

12-09-17 The Good Life

Hold your breath
Believe in ghosts
Protect your heart
Travel the globe
Shoot the moon
Have more fun
Eat good food
Fall in love
Take a risk

12-08-17 Walking Home

Long walks home
Under the moonlight
Talking about our day

Catching the wind
Making a wish
On the first star we see

12-07-17 Ages Of Pages

Remember those old poems
We used to write together
When our days were carefree
And our nights were everlasting

12-06-17 Out Of Focus

Colorful lights swirling
Into a blurred landscape
Of melted shapes blending
Together morphing into images
And the people all around
Seem strange and unique
With weird faces changing
As their expressions shift
While they talk out loud
In little pieces of conversation
But it's quite hard to understand
Exactly what they are saying
And it's impossible to know
What they really mean

12-05-17 Messages From Mother Nature

Thunder in a rainstorm
Watch flashes of lightning
Clean earth tones vibrating
Fires burning in the wind
Quakes shake rattle and roll
Cold summers hot winters
Rising tides flood the streets
Animals march toward extinction
Two by two and maybe you too

12-04-17 Truth In Every Day Stuff

Drinking a cup of coffee
Talking about the weather

Putting gas in your tank
Setting a good example

Hitting the pavement
Thinking about the government

Taking that first breath
Smelling fresh air all day

Grabbing a slice of pizza
Getting stuck in the rain

Hopping in a cab after work
Listening to music on the radio

Fighting for justice on the street
Writing poems in a notebook

Sitting quietly in an apartment
Listening to the beautiful silence

12-03-17 Dreams Inside Nightmares

All of your wildest dreams
Will come true this afternoon
If you only believe in magic

All of your deepest fears
Will come back to haunt you
If you get lost in darkness

12-02-17 New Window

Looking out with
Open eyes wide
Silently sound
Outward bound

Gazing away
Beyond perfect
Horizons fading
Into tomorrow
