Nine O’Clock

Posted on

 

I don’t know the reason I wake up around nine every morning. Late in terms of the working world. Being outside of that, it seems perfect. I’m not sure what makes me sit in the same corner of my couch, hands warmed by my hot tea, slippered feet curled up, sun spilling on my face.

I don’t know why at that very moment when everything felt fine in my world, yours was exploding. How could I possibly slumber while you edged closer to your demise? What reason is there for my contentment and your pain? I prefer keeping in mind even the possibility that existence has it’s own reason for being and you had your reason for leaving it.

 

 

For Merril’s Prosery: Possibilities prompt at

dVerse Poets Pub

She asked us to include the following from “Possibilities” by Wislawa Szymborska…

“I prefer keeping in mind even the possibility that existence has it’s own reason for being”

 

No What If’s

It all happens in

One unexpected trice

The way the wind catches the door

The instant the ocean bursts into art form

As it crashes against the reef

The fluke of snowflakes in April

Your heart gives you wings

Unpredictable things and you

Can either

…………..pause

watching them pass

Or leap

 

We welcome Merril as a new pubtender at dVerse Poets Pub, hosting our first Poetics for 2019!

She has asked us to “consider time and space and what if?” Join us!

Happy New Year!

Preservation

Even clarity is a journey

There are no seconds sweet enough

To freeze for future use

You desperately hold on

To every crystal clear moment

Before watching them free fall

Like droplets reflecting your soul

Destined to the mulch

Of victories and blunders

Enriching your past

To the roots you stand on

This ground you dance on

So decorated

With all that you are

 

Sands of Time

Posted on

White Sands National Monument, NM

Time is irrelevant

No meaning cast

Daylight dishonored

 By shadows of the past

Seasons slide easily

Through white knuckled fists

Like tiny bright crystals

Too weak to resist

Time is a gift

To be treasured or wasted

Portraits and images

Carefully pasted

Time is mind altered

We stand early or late

Pausing… resuming

But time does not wait

Time is man measured

Designed and driven

Assumed,  forsaken

Granted,  God given
