Signing Late Winter

x

The sky is blue

As an observer,

A romantic,

Or a child might say

At last

And with a sigh:

It’s been white

Or gray for a while

x

A lithe tree branch

Dances against the window

I can’t hear it for

The distance,

Though I’m sure there’s

Scraping

x

Asking to come in

Or better yet

Inviting me

For company

To go out

Sunday Matinee

Sunday Matinee

 

A deep sigh is a good thing

Unplanned

It takes regret

Folds it into wings and lets it go

Not that it will leave

For good but

Might fly out of grasp

Maybe out of mind before

It re-alights

And I have to take it back

 

Exhalation causes other things

To leave

Molecules we’d rather do without

Maybe some toxic atoms

Elements of life that will work better

Somewhere else

Lead and mercury

Irradiated particles that come from

Life too near a glowing factory

These days

 

It’s all right

Nothing much more dangerous than

When the smoke rolled out

From Pittsburgh to

Its suburbs

Generations’ mischief

Doesn’t seem to change

 

Like parents to campsites, we should leave

The world a better place for

Children

We gave up on that

I’m not sure why

Today’s Pain

Today’s Pain

 

My eyes hurt.  Parts

are swimming.

Parts are dry.  Maybe

with more sleep.

Sigh.

Favoring Neighborly Respect

Favoring Neighborly Respect

(greetings with a sigh from USA)

 

We’re not all like Dwayne Wade

Canada is our neighbor, deserving

Of respect

 

And you are liked

 

There is enough to contend with

 

Fire, life of First Nations, economy,

And government—correlations in

USA

 

Antics courtesy of the NBA are

Neither needed nor liked nor

Incumbent here

 

We are friends—maybe we will

Match our amity in action, as

We do in many things

 

But, as with national songs, a

Kinship should be lifted,

Celebrated, and served, O

Canada:

 

The land of hope for all who toil,

The true North strong and free!

 

Thank you for forbearing,

From your friend
