In Other Birds

I would have made a nice bird,

preening myself after a good meal

in the sunshine.

In other words and other birds,

Now would be a good time to fly south.


Moments In Time

Beautiful moments in time so brief,
Now filled with sadness and grief
The happiness of younger years,
Is now filled with tears.
Love will last in our hearts
When the sorrow has passed.

Greater Ambitions

My greater ambitions just got dumped with the slop
to the hungry wolves out back.
My greater ambitions simmer like some kind of brew
boiling on the stove that eventually becomes a stew.
Greater ambitions lurk somewhere as scraps here and there.
Something greater will come, but I must look
inward and upward.
