HALLOWEEN is Finally Here!

Hauntingly terrific
All ghouls
Living without
Outside adventures
What an
Ever so

Meant to scare
so all beware
This evening's

Filled with fright
and fiendish delight
Full moon on a
bewitching night.

Tricks or Treats
Smelly or sweet
Tonight can make you
squeal or scream.

It's reality
It's not a dream
Dress up as a
King or Queen.

This one night
Ghosts are meant
to be seen
Monsters rule
ordinary humans drool.

My absolute favorite
time of year
It's all make believe
so never fear.

Halloween is finally here!

I'm Up

Up and ready to face the day
with nary a doubt in mind
At least that's what I would like to say
at some point and time

Up at least and ready somewhat
No doubt for now
Just knowing somehow
I'll take the day as it goes

Work it out

Somehow we manage
to make it work
Less hours than we need
More projects than we thought
Somehow it all gets done

Wonder Woman
Super Man
Doing the best
that we can
With the  cards we have
been dealt

Breathe in
Breathe out
Remove your doubt
because it's true
Somehow you
will manage too
Somehow we all manage
to work it out

Yes or No

Grounded in reality
but longing for the stars
Tell me will I ever know
if there is life on Mars?

Did you never daydream.
Were you told to stop?
Didn't you ever wonder
if this world would be enough?

Beyond the sky lay space and time
all I want's to make them mine
Tell me that I have the key
don't shake your head and dismiss me.

Tell me No and I forget
that once I had all the answers
Tell me yes and just who knows
The worlds you can discover in me.

Another Morning

Morning takes me into another day
Am I ready for all that may come my way?
Life's ever hectic pace has caught up to me
and woefully unprepared as I am
I must settle down and do what must be done.

Days pass quickly into weeks
Only time can tell me if I am on the right path.
Ready or not time waits for no one
Ready or not time marches on
I might be more prepared than I know
only one way for me to go.

Months move swiftly into years
is it possible we're all still here?
Time never stands still when you need it to
and never moves fast enough when you notice.
I cannot know what dreams may come.
I can only do this day by day.
Another morning and here I am.
Another morning and here I stand.

Nothing Much

Nothing much on my mind
just glad I made it to today
Nothing much in my mouth
No words of wit or wisdom to say
Nothing much
Not today
Nothing much
Not today
No words
No wisdom
No woes
No wit
Nothing much
And I am just fine
with it.

Old is New Again

Turning over an old leaf
that was once new.

Miss all the veins of thought
I discovered in you.

Feel it's time to bring you back
to reinstate your purpose.

Once we worked quite well together.
Oh the storms we two have weathered.

How I need your strength again
to face the challenges within.

Show Me

No more words
No more promises
Show me

Actions speak louder than words
always saying what will be
but never making it so

No more words
No more promises
Show me

All talk and no action
Time is running out
less talk more action
should be your plan

No more words
No more promises
Show me

Let your actions
speak for themselves
Let me see what you alone
can do

Show me
No more promises
No more words

A little early for resolutions
Don't really make those anyway
Time to rethink where I'm going
what I'm doing and what games
 I want to play

A little early for resolutions
Don't really make those anyway
I have to be more flexible
or wind up fixed on
inconsequential details

A little early for resolutions
Don't really make those anyway
Taking stock of my current
reality makes me want to
improve the quality
of me, myself and I

Don't really make resolutions
no promises I can't keep
but I do know I need to
do more for me
I've miles to go before I sleep

It never wandered this far before
but today I can't find it
today it is lost

It's not in a frame
It's not been blown
It's not been boggled
nor has it been crossed
today it's most decidedly lost

I've kept it open
and sometimes on one track
I try to keep loads off
It stays in its own business
to help it be at peace

However this morning
I can't find it at all
It won't speak no matter
how often I call.

Lost is the only answer
that springs
Lost with a load of
too many things
Lost I fear
is where it must be
Hopefully soon it returns
in a state
Broadened by travel
and feeling quite great.

Wednesday Haiku

Wednesday morning thought
I made it to the middle
Closer to the weekend now

Get over the hump
Just a few more days to go
Ready for the end

My midweek mantra
It gets easier from here
The weekend is near

Don't wake me if I am dreaming
for this feeling's far too sweet

a long embrace
and tiny butterfly kisses
all over my face

Don't wake me if I am dreaming
for this feeling's far too sweet

whispered words
my eyes closed tight
wishing morning
was still the night

Don't wake me if I am dreaming
for this feeling's far too sweet

being together
just before dawn
hoping this moment
can linger on

Fortune Smiles

Send it out into the Universe
Watch it return in simplest form

A smile

A thought

A hug 

A kiss

A prayer

A dream 

A goal

A wish

Fortune smiles
when we are not looking

Fortune smiles
when we least expect it

Fortune smiles
when we need it most

Constant Change


Dreams go by
in a blinding whir

Remembering who we
all once were

Remembering who we
all once were


How did we all
get here

I can't recall
all the yesterdays

Life's gone by
in such a haze


outward beauty
has lost its power

Inner strength is
what remains

Time and life
is constant change

Angry Noise Box

Angry little box of noise
Each weekday morning you annoy
my delicious dreams
my sweet slumber
the warm covers
I am under

Angry little box of noise
why do you disturb my sleep
I'm not ready to attend to
the noises you create
I'm not ready to comprehend
a waking state

Angry little box of noise
I can't believe your power
Persistent insistence
that I awake at this early hour

I know I am responsible for
setting up your demands
but I wish I had never
given the command

Why am I?

Where am I?
Hidden behind a mask of elegance
Who am I?
A realist
Where am I?
Shrouded in a cloak of manners
Who am I?
What am I?
How am I?
Occasionally ruthless
yet loyal to a chosen few
When am I?
All the the time

Explosive Reality

Explosive with the knowledge that

hope shall provide a vision to come

is the child whose dreams

are on the verge of coming true

within the boundaries of a universe

waiting to expand into reality.

The Road

Jay walk
Corner to Corner

How do we cross it?
How do we reach it?
The one less traveled;
The one we all must take.

Come to the fork
Stay in the middle
Is it dirt or
Is it paved?

How do we cross it?
How do we reach it?
The one less traveled
where the difference is made.

Being Patient

I've decided to be patient
of course I'm not sure
if I am

I made the decision yesterday but 
I cannot feel the change

I've decided to be patient
no more stressing
no more fuss
Always in a hurry
Always in a rush

I think I've got this
new me down
being patient
is a breeze

I think I've got this
new me down
being patient
filled with ease

I hope I'm doing it
I hope I keep it up
this being patient thing's
new for me
hope 24 hours
is enough

Too Soon

Even if I turn off the volume
close my eyes tighter
and ignore the morning light

I know it's that time again
and I am not ready for it all to begin

Mornings are a rough start to the day
There has to be another way
to awaken me from slumber

Too soon the dark of night 
turns into day

Too soon the warm blankets
must give way 

Too soon my return
to responsibilities of the day

Too soon
is all I have to say

I know it's that time again
and I am not ready for it all to begin
