National Poetry Month: Towards the Moon

Towards the Moon

The breath of Endymion
sails towards the moon,
on a silver sea of stars
around the night ethereal
Past dreams and realms
in the hoary wake of gods
Blown along the cosmic nexus
towards home.

National Poetry Month: Puzzles of Yesterday

Puzzles of Yesterday

Enigmatic riddles of yesterday
Bleed cracks into tomorrow
How do you build stability
on a shaky, lopsided foundation?

Bleed cracks into tomorrow
with intolerable division today
Isolation will leave you alone

How do you build stability?
not in hate, intolerance or violence
We are not many, but one.

On a shaky, lopsided foundation
tomorrow will quaver and fall
yesterday turns the future to ash

National Poetry Month: Holding Patterns

I will be posting my daily poems for National Poetry Month here for April 7th, 8th and 9th.

Holding Patterns

Circles in a static blueprint
rotund travel, all roundabouts
Mundane monotone, in outlines
filled precisely within the lines
Copy printed days in triplicate,
repeated action in automated style
Black and white, in shades of grey
a life in a holding pattern.
