Homeless in the City

Photo overlooking the city of  Portland Oregon

A million people

A million voices

None speak my name

Two million feet tred

Where I sit

None stop near me

Millions of bright lights

Shining round

I sit in the dark

Squirrel’s Storehouse

Backyard Planter

Squirrel scampering

Hiding acorns ‘neath

The slumbering vine

Truckload of treasures

Delivers in Winter

Syllabic Verse

🍁The pesky squirrel is back and digging in my plants burying his treasures. He’s cute but I don’t like the fact that he digs in my plants to store his food for winter. 🍂😩

Fragile

Box makes Fragile

Boxes

All shapes

And all sizes

Like people

They hold things inside

Secrets, treasures, dreams

Or maybe unwanted things like

Bitterness, unforgiveness

Handle all boxes with care because

They can be damaged inside and out

Stopped

Out of Order sign

“Out of Order”

The sign said

I didn’t

Like what

I just read

It made me

“Out of Order”

Syllabic Verse

Shopping, rushing to the restroom, stopped by this sign. Stand there and stare blankly for a minute, regroup thoughts, make a plan B and move on.

On a long walk, so thirsty, remember there’s drinking fountain at the park, but a sign says….”Out of Order”–(plan B again)

So tired of walking around the Mall, friend wants to go to the food court on the third level, head to the elevator, but…guess what!!!

I am sure we can all relate to having those “Out of Order” days. They are not fun but they sure slow us down and make us think! 😊
