Saturday with the Muse

She’s back…the Muse was on holiday. 😉

believing a thing,
even with emotion,
is not truer
than knowing it

sleeping in could be
one of life’s sweetest
pleasures…may the
dreams never end

another dawn breathes life
and light into the darkest of
nights as if to say it is
never too late for a do over

when we awaken from
this nightmare with its poison
smoke lingering, some may
come away with hearts of ice
but for those devoured by
dark secrets, remembering…
morning will never bring peace

September Poem #28

of mockery
whispering roar, piercing hearts
blubbering, belligerent rage
truth hid, on holiday


Congress corrupted…check. Laughing stock of the world…check. Media slandered…check. The 1% richer…check. Natural resources squandered…check. The Supreme Court’s integrity destroyed…check. Allies dismissed, enemies embraced…check, check, check. Democracy dies a slow, ugly death, does it not?

September Poem #27

a truth’s
regarded through subjective
lenses is easily dismissed
as smoke with no fire


Autumn Rhapsody

Autumn Rhapsody

she weeps fallow fronds,
flushed crimson, vermillion,
sienas, ochres,
yearning for cool eventide’s
frosted plunge, and dreams of spring


A Tanka this week for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge, Synonyms Only, Prompt Words: Fall (Autumn, weep, plunge) and Try (yearn, dream).

September Poem #25

sixty seconds
tick tock so very slowly
but only when I am waiting
never when I am late
