Time That Doesn’t Sleep

Tick tock goes the clock

Time that doesn’t sleep but battery dead

Snoring Zinger cat nap time



Save Me


Poker face, play the smile

Gaze at me, steel eyes plead

Speak to me of dreams and sorrows

Love is time, time is love

Save Me

A Little Piece of Your Time

Save Me

A little space in your mind

Save me the corner booth with cobwebs spun

Save me laughter and sorrow

A sidelong glance

Save me a song, perhaps even a dance

Maybe a rose, even with thorns

Save me, save me

Gentle on the mind

Once Upon My Time


Someone To Tell Our Story To

The story is told by firelight of one dark and stormy night,

Of once upon a time

Maybe even the nursery rhyme.

Lilt and cadence,

Letters arranged on paper, with lines straight and curved, printed and script

Someone to hear our story is one of life’s greatest needs

Lift the pen!  The universe heeds

The story is told from only a seed

A story only one can tell.

Line and lilt and perhaps a brogue

Tells a story only our hearts can hold.

Journey to the Joy Road


Journey To The Joy Road

I took a walk along a lonely path paved with hurts of old,

Shadows dark and wind so cold blew through the trees so stark

The light was dim, although it shone upon my heart so fair

Peace it seems, peace was missing on the path of old.

The path less traveled lie before me, new journeys and steps to take

One foot in and one foot out

What if the hokey pokey really is all that it is about?

What if I fail?  What if I succeed?  What if I don’t know how?

What if, what if, what if indeed. . .

What if instead, I merely chose to believe?

I took the path less traveled with its whispered roars

Raised the shades, swung open the doors

The path is lined with blooming hearts and a Phoenix oh so rare

Technicolor life and love exists when I walk there.

The journey to joy road is lined with baby steps and braveheart leaps

Fears faced down and dragons slayed

Peace ENOUGH for me to keep.
