A Grumpy Way To Say..

hey! just taking/giving you a breather from my poems today and just thought i’d send brightest wishes from my mushy, sunny soft sofa in ottawa, canada. i hope you’re feeling as well and as inspired as is possible at this time, for you in your own ‘one of a kind, one upon a time’ life.

love and winces
always,

2020-11-19 – A Flashback Forward

i recall when in
high school,
every..

fashion phase would
surely be the
last one,

i remember when best
way to make the
grade was to
pretend

it was ok, and grin like
flushing heads was
done in good
ol’ fun..

and the best way
to get laid was
to pretend

i hated everyone
and anything
cheery or
fun

++++

i found this flashback
a bit telling..

a bit chilling, tip-
toeing into
2021.

2020-11-18 – The Colour’s You

i tried to choose a
colour to best
describe
you,

but no variation quite
captures your
true mood,

blasting flashes of
all tones..

drab and dusty, and
dyes that let life
bleed thru

++++

you’re a blend
of beauty’s
every
hue,

and if i brushed
my heart in
only one..

colour, it’d
be you.

2020-11-15 – Graveyard Grey

i saw a bouquet of
weathered
flowers

toppled by
your

headstone, the
wind must
have

thrown another
after hours
tantrum

++++

though, true i
don’t know
you

i get how much
little things
mean
to..

ones missing those
who can no longer
be caressed
or seen,

so i return your
flowers to
their

rightful
place,

++++

where dew kissed
petals blush the
graveyard
grey.

2020-11-11 – Palms to Sky

there’s a breach
in quilted
sky

open to each
restless
lens,

unscratched, each
earth born
star..

glowing well-
unscarred..

gazes of longing,
rolling upward
reaching
for

fresh scenery
through the
smudgy
dark.

++++

i raise my palms
to heaven and
surrender
to the
light

in crowded
city park.

2020-11-09 – Lower Glow

i’m lit lantern on
a string of
many..

glown in tandem, as
yard’s salvation
from dark
times..

++++

and when i grow
dim, the others
brighten..

without fumble
or failure,

and i’ll offer same-
come their
time
to..

glow a little
paler.
