Cloudscapes

at least I get to see you
in the cloudscapes of my dreams

and it may as well be real
’til my eyes the sunshine beams

our one way conversation
on my blog you’ll never read

keeps me sanguine and serene
while I sit and sip my tea

still by my side—as I walk
past the arboretum trees

you join me in reflection
questioning my sanity

though your warmth is hard to find
as I drift down sleep’s sweet stream

at least I’ll get to see you
in the cloudscapes of my dreams

Have I gone too far? Am I too far gone?

The Hourglass

time’ll slip and slide away
through the hourglass’s hole
every thing disintegrates
given eons—all grows cold

but do not fear—come what may
stand tall! think! be bold!
and though the end may not be nigh
we still should cherish those we hold

Death

yes, death will find me
no more writing silly poems
no more love to give


my thoughts have now ceased
but I remain in my words
I am what I wrote


there’s no way to know
what lies on the other side
it’s a one way trip


what if when you die…
Continue? Exit? Restart?
too many choices


in sickness, in health
we forget grand perspectives
lucky to have lived
