2020-10-18 – Family Farm

the barnyard gate’s
been left

swinging open,
clanging
iron

in wrath of a
bad breeze
again,

and i can’t find
a roaming
hen

let alone a
lone egg
intact

and mister rooster
snored through
his alarm
again,

family farm’s
become

a powder
keg,

so i ease the gate
closed and
lock it,

but sadly, won’t be
coming back
to check
on it..

no, not
again.

2020-10-16 – Path Glows Jade

lost is where
you’ll find
me

at the precipice
of ‘good and
gone’..

peering back at
so many ‘see
you laters”

fading down shame’s
path out of
town

onward to the
next one

++++

still lost..
but moving
lighter,

stepping
forward onto..

patch a shade
greener

than ones
before
it..

in hopes the
welcome’s
warmer

where new
sun’s lit.
