October Light

Translucent light,
crimson leaves
transparent against
the clear October sky.
Last shades of summer,
first breath of cold.
A temporal suspension
in an adagio.

Covfefe

The vastness of the vast,
the vast conspiracy.
As vast as the ocean,
vastness deep.
So vast as to be unseen

Covfefe, covfefe, anon.
From my mouth of madness
I have sprung.
Like Hemingway in Spain,
I am tweeting in vain
while the vast dark sea rolls on.

Collusion, collision
there is no cohesion.
I make up the words
and roll them together
like marbles in the wind.
covfefe, covfefe anon.

Vast is Russia
like the vast conspiracy
and the vastness of all I see.
For I live in a land
of smoke and mirrors
and clouds of witless.
covfefe, covfefe, anon.

Lessons

Remember
the color of midnight,
its icy stillness
like frozen glass.

Forget
the void of night
where shadows prowl.

Remember
the misty glim
of dawn's first
rising.

Then forgive
your yesterdays,
for we all
have sinned.
They are lessons
for each day.

Beauty is Gone

Beauty is gone
like a wilted rose.
Truth is lacking
like tattered clothes
and the old equation
is poetic license,
not renewed.

Knowledge is gone,
buried deep in muck
by theory's Babel.
History lies like driftwood
scattered in the sand and
memory barely holds
as the glue dissolves.

Safety Notice

Christmas trees
can bite
like a thorny rose,
full of spite.
Hollies are most lovely
and deadly just the same.
Poinsettias will kill
the cat, they say.
The lights can spark
and blow
and tinsel can fly
up your nose.
For the holidays
are deadly, dear,
as you well know.

Tweet Mania

The twit has tweeted
his twittered tweets,
twisty tweets indeed.
Tweets that tittered toward
crazy realms
where twits must tweet
all day.

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time
still opens every dream
like a fairy tale
of things unseen.

If only we could
freely glide
like a butterfly against
the sun lit sky
with colors bright
and bold,
graceful swirls of
golden rays
resisting the daily
pall.

They say the impossible
takes a little longer.
So the implausible
should be soon.
