Brief glimpses
during vulnerable moments
when asleep
waiting
embarrassed.
Sublimely ordinary
driving silently
walking together
folding laundry.
Fleeting moments
joyous, tearful laughter
songs
mourning.
Entirely beautiful.

Ode to a Sandwich

Grilled, toasted or just the way you are
You’re one of the most beloved of foods by far
Fresh bread, bacon, melted cheese - these additions only help the cause
Forever hungry am I, greatly anticipating holding you in my paws
Some dream of material wealth or true love’s kiss
I’d settle for a delicious sandwich, that I don’t wanna miss

Tunnel Vision
No sleep, no rest, no light. The track bends, straightens. Lights seems to flicker as they pass. Eyes shut. Exhale, clench fists. Open eyes, spread hands. Be wary.

Doodler’s 30 Days of Poetry - Day 1

April is National Poetry Month. I will attempt to write a poem for each day in April. I have not been making any time to write and I warn you, these “poems” are going to be extremely rough, loose, unedited and quickly written – likely while I am falling asleep in the evening or possibly while I am on public transit. Enjoy!

The Sun

Remember taking pictures of the sun, looking straight up through the tree branches, trying to find perspective. About to press the button to open the little mechanical eye, to let in just the right amount of light in to cause a chemical reaction on the film inside (or something, however cameras work) then your shoe catches on a root that you don’t see because you are staring at the sun through the lens and you fall. It is impossible to take a picture of the sun that is not beautiful. Someone else, a real artist discovered this before you, and they wrote and made and starred in a movie, which you watched and enjoyed then looked up this person on the internet which brought you to one of their websites which suggested that everyone take a picture of the sun. Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Think of that person. Remember that time they stood with the sun behind them, and they looked at you and smiled, cast their eyes to the ground, continuing to smile.
