Ahead of Schedule


Ahead of Schedule

Caught the early train.
Beat the dark home.
Left the work day
in the closet.
Sat down to dinner.
Enjoyed a sip or two
surrounded by sound.
Finished a book
with time to spare.

Night Vision


Night Vision

What do you see
when your eyes are closed,
when your mind
should be at rest?

I see those I've
lost at their best
mingled with those
they never knew.

Why do I put them
 together? They are
 and always have been
worlds apart.

When the alarm sounds,
I ignore it and
try to hold onto
my impossible dream.

Early Bloomers


Early Bloomers

Ready to burst.
Be the first
to unfurl
your petals.
Stretch them
out to bask
in the sun
and show off
their colors.

Equinox


Equinox

Dark and light
fill our days.
Usually, one
outweighs the other.
Light increases
until it reaches
its maximum number
of hours then
retreats in small
increments, letting
darkness reign.
But twice each year,
light and dark
call a truce and
give us a day
we share equally
with the two.

Cornered



Trapped where the walls meet.
If you choose to escape, then
turn and walk away.

Searching


Searching

Head down.
Eyes focused
on the ground.
Each blade of
grass receives
your scrutiny.
Why spend
so much time
in one place
when there
is grass all
around you?
