Speeding Through Green Lights

Speeding through green lights
Welcoming the rites of Spring
A warm day to rise & smile
Walk softly & listen to the birds sing
A fiddle & bagpipes call out
Traits of hope & smiles in the air
Release the frustration of Winter
Be free; dance out in your underwear
Feel the heat of the morning sun
Pour yourself an early glass of wine
Stretch out with a wink for me
Bare skin kissed by the glorious sunshine

I Will Never Live Life Through An Instagram Filter

I will never live life through an Instagram filter
I’m going to sing my songs & kick up my heels
I’m free of all their judgements & expectations
My soul doesn’t want what they offer to conceal
I’m going to take leave of the office today
I’m going to dance out in the promise of fresh air
Seeking one of like-minded pursuits & intentions
If you ever need me – you’ll find me out there

Looking Life Dead In The Face

Looking life dead in the face
Feeling the fresh seaside air
Never backing away from the cliff
Crumbling footholds not to share
Nostalgic tones deepening now
A wish formulated into a drop
Standing tall against the tide
Generous breaths until you won’t stop

I Don’t Think You’re Better Than Me

I don’t think you’re better than me
Running tired fingers through my hair
You’re an apparition of your feeble mind
A moment forgotten – vanished in the air
Though your hatred is real enough today
I’ll gently ask you to keep your composure
A gentleman shall not tolerate outbursts
Besides, your ineptitude is dying of exposure

Knowing The Sun Will Shine Again

Knowing the sun will shine again
I sit here basking in the midnight air
A quiet sip from my enduring courage
Thinking naughty thoughts of my lady fair
Knowing I can’t sleep when I can write
I fall back into my imaginative stupor
Only to be shook by the dawn’s yawn
Daylight kicks me swift, right in the pooper
