2020-11-23 – Windy Plains

i feel the winds
of winter
plains

and hear their grudge
whistle through
the old barn
door,

tug those hand me down
covers tight against
your core,

and i’ll do the best i
think i can, i
know i
can..

distract you from
the chills of
shared

unrests blowing in
heavy from
the west,

i taste the winds
of winter
plains..

it’s those blasts of fresh
that keep our
thoughts
sane.

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.

2020-10-30 Silver Blue Light

an erratic blink
cast over the
swell..

as chorus of waves
clash their
cymbals

into first row
of rocks

to lend a glance
their way,

i’ll just beam my
silver blue
light

like a lazer through
the small
talk,

to help glow the
watery way
home..

for all night ships
hypothermic
and alone.
