There are High Days

When you finaly

Find your treasure.


There are the Holy Days

When your treasure

Finds you.

Time is in the driver seat

Never pulling over to rest.

Fear is singing comforting songs from childhood

About how everything will be alright.

Apathy is carving up Ambition’s body

Throwing the pieces out the window.

Despair follows in the distance

Sweeping Ambition’s remains off the Road.

Urgent weather bulletin from the channel 5 Kismet trackers

…A Defensive Prominence will be moving through the area over the next few days.

The front is being fueled by unusually low expectations and visibility reducing myopic perspectives.

Use caution if going outdoors at it is expected to rain vitriol then freeze over with resentment…

Bright Winter iced lake

Sun warms Eagle above snow

Bluest of cold skies

Letting Go….

January 15, 2014


The East Rim

Is hung with chains

The West Rim

Is paved with roads

The Canyon between

Has depth beyond Sunlight

To a lake

That burns

For in the East

I can’t

Yet in the West

I won’t

I’m Tired

The Finger

So often used in accusation

Continually sharpened

To needle out the details

Now like a pencil in June

Too short and too dull

With the paint chewed off

Unable to make a point

Not wanting to make a point

Finished making points

Any intellectual profit

In the trash

With the shavings

The Warning

September 12, 2012


he Queen raised her head and spoke,

“Summer shall end one Moon early this year”.

Her subjects nodded their approval.

She continued, “As Spring began one Moon early and Summer began one Moon early so shall Fall begin one Moon early.  To this I add that Winter too shall begin one Moon early.  What stores we have not must be now drawn from the land.  From each field must come into this Palace the food of our Winter.  Placed herein by the many hands of the faithful.  To secure for all of us a future in the flowering fields of Spring.”

The subjects buzzed loudly with excitement as they hurried to their tasks.

The Queen, finished with her proclamation, excused herself and began anew her sacred task.  Laying eggs in the honeycomb.
