spring speculation

three word wednesday: escape, hum, vibrant

it’s nice to escape routine
running rushing rowing
straight to the edge
peering past the wasted oil leaks
across the humid highways

like thelma and louise
what an adventure
the hum of an engine revving
racing down hot desert roads
though not so darn edgy

perchance the crook of a rest stop
a solitary ready park bench
basting in a soft bubble of benevolence
anticipating a come along presence

a manna manifestation
of simple observation
writing words along the wall
of bright blue sky
dotted with a wedge of geese
honking and hollering
heading towards somewhere

a vibrant act of wistful wool gathering
a riding companion atop puffy white clouds
carrying a collaborating compass
transported to the kingdom of connection

yeah, it’s a nice spring day


big outing

3 word wednesday: recluse, cajole, temper

remember Howard Hughes, and the 1947 flight of the Spruce Goose…

napping recluse
cajoled into reclined rest
tempest temper moored

when we look past
the bright glare of
neglected recluse
the sweet shine of success
is often washed away
in the temper
of vanity and desire.
his heart cajoled
resigned and weakened
he departed.
