Paris Hot Deleriation

It is hot is Paris today;
Steaming, scorching, sweltering hot.
Seeing schizo, delusional hot.
So hot an egg
Steps through a sliding door,
Seeking some place to shiver;
Starts sizzling on the sidewalk;
Slides onto the street.
Stands straight up – stately!
Then smashed by a scooter.
How could a simple egg stand that proud?”
When it secretly surmises it’s an oeuf!

(“oeuf” is French for egg)

Desperation

Pondering

I am a desperate man!
Desperate to truly live
Before I die!

Desperate to truly see
– the red of early sunrise
– the puple of dying day
– the green of early May

Desperate to truly hear
– laughs that heal the soul
– hearts that sing aloud
– single voices in a crowd

Desperate to truly taste
– all life throws my way
– life’s simple pleasures
– life’s greatest treasures

Desperate to truly smell
– freshness of each new day
– fragrance of morning rain
– memories lived again

Desperate to really feel
– joy deep within
– grace upon my soul
– love ’til I grow old

I am a desperate man!
Desperate to truly live
Before I die!

Valley at Dusk

Valley at Dusk

Sun,
Silently slipping
Beyond view.

Trees…
Eternal shadows of green
Spilling into forever forests.

Grass…
Emerald embankments
Waving silent goodnights.

Fences…
Protecting pastures,
Separate day from night.

Rooftops…
Silver-slick slopes
Waiting for midnight moon.

Chimneys…
Clinging to daylight
In smokey silence.

River…
Deep, dark mystery
Closing the curtain of day.

Houses…
Warm and safe
Silent ’til morning.

Valley at Dawn

Valley at Dawn

Sun…
Sleepy red orb,
Herald of day.

Trees…
Stretch skyward
Touch the morn.

Grass…
Dew-slick wetness
Long for sun’s embrace.

Fences…
Unfold magnificent
pasture dreams.

Rooftops…
Silent steam
Signal morning warmth.

Chimneys…
Sweet smell spiral
Morning meal.

River..
Rumbling, racing
Into the day.

Houses…
Excited wakening
Facing new day.
