Daily Poems 13 - 16 April 2013

16 April 2013

Sometimes the days
come all at once
and all on the same day.

Troubles assail
tsunami after tsunami
only you in fathomless ocean.

Yet sometimes the days
bring inundations of
joy, graces, blessings, and love.

Still the same
tsunami after tsunami
but such different fathomlessness.

the wind is blowing
upvalley, so the seasons
are changing

why do the seasons
ever leave this place it’s
so beautiful

but ‘twould get old
same thing month by month
years unending

no break from either
heat nor cold, no wearing any
other clothes

and no chance for
your uplifted face receiving both
mist, snowflakes

and which for forever
would we choose, aspen gold
newborne green

the morning wind’s blowing
upvalley, bringing us something
new again

Because The Night

This night calls for Springsteen

Not Darkness on the Edge of
Atlantic City Born to Run
Nevada Johnny 99 Backstreets
Brilliant Disguise Hungry Heart

But the post-Patti Scialfa
Living Proof Red Headed Woman
If I Should I Fall Behind
My Beautiful Reward Better Days

Let’s never mind any reason to believe
And so what if it’s one step up
And two steps back because you and me
We know what love can do
When it’s tougher than the rest

This night, this tonight
It’s callin’ for Springsteen
Come next me without your fears
And you can hear it
Bruuuuuce! Bruuuuuuce! Bruuuuuuuce!

13 April 2013

I reach out with my heart
in order to hold yours
extend it toward you, yours—
look, we’re hanging here.

Don’t go leaving me heartless
half-empty, not half-full
fully isolated and abandoned
a heart less, a missing beat.
