on Ukraine

come gather round you
sons of Russia enrich soil
who don't understand?

~

n.b. It is reported in the NY Times that Russian military losses are in excess of 200,000, not counting the captured. That land must hold a lot of value to Moscow if it is happy to spread so much blood and bone.

aroused from deep dream
sun clouded out, day decays
gloves, coats, car headlights

on light

bright start betrays you
beware the day's warm welcome
winter rules still hold

n.b. I’m sure we’ve all done it, misread the promise of a sunny morning to venture out in hope, before finding bright sunlight doesn’t always keep its promises.

walk with me on frost
Sun's glow bedazzles blue eyes

on time

nothing to see here
it's everywhere else you look

n.b. Seems like these days, everyone carries a pocketful of stones, just in case, but that’s Social Media for you.

on history

immediately
all dreams dissolved, fear took grip
each day feels endless

~

n.b. Faith in The Great Healer crumbles, as Time slows and every single second chews up and spits out another a piece of the soul, in slow motion.

Ever done something you wish you had not?
