World Poetry Day

Apologies for this post’s delay…Pax and I had the dickens of a time acquiring an acceptable photo from various website collections…which proves the adage: “If you want something done right, do it yourself”šŸ˜ŠĀ 


For all poet-souls ~

Before day, world, succumb to

Myriad malaise

Let me hold you, near and far

Embrace, bless your beating hearts

I keep you in prayers

Frequent, faithfully fervent

That no ill harm you…

All you endeavor, prosper…

May we meet ‘neath poem-filled skies

Cranky Poet


Sense of humor’s stressed

Today’s world, this life, seem queer

My opinion mere

No disrespect, quite surely

I’m cranky, perhaps a touch

Maybe I need sleep

Situation’s not so bleak

Must turn other cheek

But, if in woods I amble

Traffic lights I’ll dare ignore

Whate’er outlandish penalty

The World As Boat

Is peopled world boat

Commodious, attempting

Channel maneuvers

‘Mid sustainability

Lacking perfectly pristine

Material?Ā  It’s

Carrying burdened

Passengers—hungry, angry

Manners forgotten

Wearied by lengthy voyage

Sea’s tumultuous trial…

They long to be free

Of cramped quarters, restrictions

Repetitious tales

Passports may be lost, questioned…

Hopes, incentive: cloudy sky.
