Where Are You?

Field, clouds, sky

Is there someplace you’d rather be?

Or are you in your comfort zone?

Are you settled or wanting to be free?

Is there someplace you’d rather be?

Seeking a dream or a vision you see?

Need help or like being alone?

Is there someplace you’d rather be?

Or are you in your comfort zone?

Realistic Dreaming

Dreaming, girl on the moon, hot air balloons, sky

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its better than what you’ve got

Before you leave the pond and swim upstream

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its not just an empty scheme

Promising you somethings that are not

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its better than what you’ve got

Enjoy

Enjoy the little things

Before they slip away

Life a new day brings

Enjoy the little things

A bird that sings

A sunny day

Enjoy the little things

Before they slip away

Extravagance

Garbage, Trash

Wanting and wasting are we

Living in a plastic worldly tent

Of high tech commodity

Wanting and wasting are we

Our waste destroying the sea

And littering our enviroment

Wanting and wasting are we

Living in a plastic worldly tent

Triolet

This poem is based on an “up-ended” meaning of this phrase: “waste not, want not”

This is actually a proverb which means:

if you use a commodity or resource carefully and without extravagance, you will never be in need.

This was one of my mom’s favorite sayings. She lived the the Great Depression. We would all do well to learn to do this nowadays.

Your Vestige

Fall Leaves

Time and life will take their toll.

They will leave a lasting imprint.

What is to be your end goal?

Time and life will take their toll.

The body dies but not the soul.

Consider this as you do your stint.

Time and life will take their toll,

They will leave a lasting imprint.
