In search of story


Disconnections: December 13.18


An obvious moral is corny

an insult, trite and hacked;

the reader need not be assailed

with life is a balancing act.

Nonetheless, Nature advises

with many a silent word;

I’m sure there’s admonition

which oughtn’t go unheard.

Is it only balance

mutely blatant above

or does it speak of deadwood

I need to let go of?

Connections: January 2.17

vh-2016-11-37-old-treeNew Year’s resolutions

are not a game I play

but I do try to see how tomorrow

can better my yesterday.

So I’ll look in my mind for deadwood

and do what must be done

chopping it down to stump

to allow for more brain sun.

And I’ll try to make it so

it will be more likely than not

I will grow some new perspectives

in painted flower pot.
