As Life Continues

The day came
The day went by
The next day came
Life still continues
The present day will become yesterday
Still life will continue
It’s time that does not stop.

Luncheonette

rainy day at the
luncheonette
a waitress yawns
teenage girls giggle
I stir my coffee and listen
to Dylan’s Lay Lady Lay

Cat

a grey cat
walks unseen
on a drab
winter day…

Days

Morning eyes are clear
thoughts unmuddled
the body stretches
mind wanders
eyes dim
until all that remains
is blurred vision
tangled thoughts
restlessness

remember

How is it that we don’t
sometimes can’t or even won’t
during daytime nor by night
be as happy as we might
remember
