Disconnections: December 2.18

 


UP is that place

to run

LEAVES are

for having fun

TREES are

for being goal

DOWN is that place

to roll

I used to be ten

I remember when

but I don’t think I’ll try it again.

 

 

Have you ever, dear reader, wanted to roll down a leafy hill long after you knew you’d be an idiot to try?

 

Thanks again to photographer S.W. Berg and Happy Birthday to D. J. Berg!

Connections: January 20.17

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAWhen the world is too much with us

and we need a Shangri-la

it’s time to get away

to the holistic basement spa.

With Tonka therapy

and sump pump ambiance

the clientele is served

with flair and flamboyance.

Sometimes they can’t keep up

I’m very sorry to say

I cannot get you in

they’re overbooked today.

With apologies to Wordsworth.

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERASqueak!

Over the park

the call of the swing

familiar old tune

ear-splitting.

Squeak!

Little legs

in ecstasy

kick and wiggle

weightlessly.

Squeak!

Those legs are new

pudgy and spry

they can’t yet walk

but they can fly.

Squeak!

Rhythm of childhood

mid-air play

song of light hearts

in meter’d day.

Squeak!
