Love at the Tower: Compilation 02/02/2023

The image of the city’s clock amidst the chilly air
its origin unknown for now and nobody did care
The chiming in the tower made my deepest wish come true
as if a dream had happened, I could finally sit with you
We crunched on our late breakfast, my Lucky Charms the best
compersion to my sugary desire never added to your stress
We locked our hands together and vowed to always stay attached
in the perpendicular arm embrace we were so closely latched.
We gazed at one another with no care to who could hear
Our love could show and grow some more, never more to fear.

Little Creature Surprise: Compilation 01/29/2023

The shriek slowly faded as I walked away
Ruining my exercise that precipitates my day
The drumming continued and the peacefulness topped
Like vines along barns grown too thick to be cropped
I clung to my sweater spread right ‘cross my back
I was flummoxed to see the cement had a crack
Was it water in there hunting for a space to hide?
Like a natural trowel I impulsively tried
To look in the crack, a real tight place to see
If this was the place the cacophony might be
I employed all my senses, visions coming right back
Like the floods and the blooms of springtime’s attack
When all of a sudden I saw in that space
All the creatures were having a chummy embrace
There was music and balloons like tiny small dots
There were young little creatures banging on pots
They were celebrating something, I’d never know
But back to my exercising I had to go.

Conspiracy: Compilation 01/27/2023

You live in a world where no Gods exist
where fantasy’s real and wishes will die
Nefarious creatures you face by the dozens
to do nothing more than than leer and tell lies.
But how do you yield to a power so bold
To lurch to the front of this crowd?
Without leaving truths spun so even and fine
yet speak in harsh words so terribly loud.
Time to throw in the towel, leave through the door
put the past far from that part of your mind
Of course the best path to take this time ’round
Verify any old clues you can easily find.

A Horse in Armor: Compilation 01/19/2023

Armor for Man and Horse, Steel, leather, copper alloy, textile, Italian, Milan and Brescia
https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/35772

My actions seemed quite outrageous
I suppose you’d call them daft
to see my equine partner
bard in a coat and hat
The suit was made of armor
A fetish I admit
To see a horse so handsome
Disposable’d never fit
I swallowed any angst now
to point out my big guy
No cheater could they call me
Only authentic did I buy
He was the utmost handsome
I really must admit
But how can I clean real armor
when it’s full of horse’s shit?

Winter’s Depth: Compilation 01/17/2023

Limbs pruned from the large, green pine
severed from the roots
cut so deeply
As if a door has shut out all light
and an immanent cold settles
All spatial reasoning gone
rationed by the falling snow
Any breath is a deviation
from the warmth
and beauty
of spring’s sweet air
and peaceful breeze

Realization: Compilation 01/15/2023

Despite the manifestations
To determine a moment or two
Where gratitude is not held down
Where a strong stand is taken by you

The silence is suddenly broken
When gossip is shuffled around
People around shilly-shally
You shoulder the words and the sound

You wrap your arms around slowly
An afable look on your face
And find that the truth is the one thing
That can fill nearly all of the space

Your guard is suddenly broken
A powdery dust no longer seen
Like the blade of a knife that is bent
All severe feelings is how it has been

The situation is fine now
The look on your face shows a smile
The sweet minty taste on the pallet
Once again you have gone the whole mile.

The Pastor and the Chief: Compilation 01/14/2023

Once upon a time
in an ordinarily boring way
a stodgy tribal chief
made a platter out of clay
He measured inch by inch
the details are a blur
He awakened the next afternoon
His speech a weak, low slur
The pastor in the town
came giving out good vibes
His beatitudes were sincere
He knew the chief imbibes
They sat quiet in a chair
to ponder the last day
and realized with a start
there was a new ceramic tray.
The tray was full of food
there was fruit and a lot of meat
They lunched and said with grace
That each bite’s a yummy treat.

Never together: Compilation 01/10/2023

Once his dream of a life together
With her faded, day by day,
As he realized that his love for her
Was unrequited and far away

He knew he had to move on
A premonition he had felt
Even though she kissed him tenderly
Its a hand that he’d been dealt

Like a needle in a haystack
Found only once by a surprise
He stood there in a trance and stared
The scud, a cloud look to his eyes

Holly’s not some trendy model
No debutant from castle life
In a periwinkle dressing gown
She’d never get to be his wife.

The Proposal: Compilation 01/06/23

Bite your tongue he said to me
While nipping at my toes
A keyboard lay there silently
The candle burns and then it glows
I’m swept away by his soft words
Quickly drying up my tears
As if a load is taken back
A halfpence trade for years
My neck begins to slowly flush
My heart just skips a beat
My love for him continues on
He is my heart’s sweet treat
I pinch myself to make sure now
that this is all true life
when suddenly he asks me if
I want to be his wife.

A dishonest man

Whether brazen or bold he just couldn’t see
The result of his actions, the casualty
He found snags like a magnet without any fear
He let it roll of his shoulders never shedding a tear
The stopgap type changes he so willingly made
Were espousal techniques, repetitions to trade
Without any fears to stop him dead in his tracks
Made his old, nosy neighbors turn their crookedly backs
He had enough money, kept an account that he sees
As a way of avoiding all those included fees
So now that it’s known that he had no real clue
He got what was coming, what they say he was due.
