Cortez

a #step is a step
is a word is a word,
until suddenly like stout Cortez above Darien,
in front of you is the entire world

We hurry…

Through afternoons of
thunderstorms.
Going home across moist
blackness. This day finished.
Another piece of the puzzle gone.

sunrise

daybreak painting a tin star
autumn leaves and stepping stones
a long goodbye amid raindrops
not a single reason for sadness
drying my tears happy endings

Ticktock Goes The Clock

The clock of life ‘ticktocks’ quickly like silver lightening!
It’s moving hands never stand still as I watch the day slipping into the night.
Stealing hours, minutes and seconds of precious life moments,
Before the clock’s chimes STRIKE an end to the day!

Kids Without a Care

for being for living
skateboarding in a building
blocking a car
going far
having a drink
not old enough
do they care
do they mind
who are they
kids

Pieces of Me

Mystified, I sit
surrounded by torn pieces –
Mind in disarray

You’re So Vain..You Probably Think This Poem is About You

Spotlight dreams of self-indulgence,
Favorite stories your musing thoughts
Sounds the heartbeat, “I’M ALL GLORY!”
Everyone’s win of a mortal BEAST!
Flattering caresses feed your ego,
Vain words make you gloat.
Endearing blandishments you profess,
Bleeds the heart, dims..the rest…
