(wearing those shoes)
picking the bowling ball
that rolling down the shiny alley
clunk of connection!
then silence of exhale
did i forget to breathe?
thank you 'spare' for releasing my breath
owe you one
you and me, babe
as i survive another turn

wondering through the halls of discontent
I bump into friends I used to see before that viral thingy
what a dream come true, we laughed without masks
we kissed on the lips

a hug. safe? not safe?
a kiss? lips? no lips? neck? too much?
what day is it?
grasping for a handhold
connection to something steady
a moment of surety

the woods may be the safest place on earth
just be careful if you are a dyed-in-the-wool
treehugger
I feel liberated in the forest
so many of my hikes feature a lack of humanity
of course I'm not speaking of of some arcane cruelty
I simply mean
there aren't
any humans
to be seen
or heard from
and a delightful
abundance
of wildlife than seem
more accepting
of me each trip out there
as if they can sense
i am in no way a threat
and as a matter of fact
I identify with them
more than most humans these days
I get surprisingly close to them
some days
as I encroach their space
and if feels so
well.........
natural

true relaxation
weight off shoulders
smells of chlorophyll

I paint my dreams
whether I am awake or not
I try to have my visions come to life
with flairs of originality
oh, not saying they are great works of art
but I will say, they are mine
Vonnegut believed just trying is as good as anything
he said stop trying to be be perfect
it is the act of creating where so much love is
and that love you pick up in the process you can share
in real ways with real people, and I love
the process.....sometimes even the final result
and the same happens when I hike
I always expect something wonderful
I walk through paintings already created
my nature's mother

the place that hasn't been ruined
by "progress"

went out to the reservoir with my daughter
the magic was in the water, in the ripples
and the light dancing back onto the leaves
the day was sparkling
wild reflections everywhere you looked
and the word of the day was Movement

wrote poetry in the back yard
soft warm wind helped stimulate
ideas, turn them into something
other than just words. and the birds approved
they put on a show of their flying skills

then watched
as all words dissolved
into sparkles of dust

my brother got The Rona
and 3 good friends
I was worried they were posting
all these pics of unmasked acquaintances
and sho enuf.....the variant invaded
it ain't over til the fat lady sings
or that's what Yogi thinks
not the bear, the baseball player
and they keep dropping, guess
I've been lucky
better to be lucky than smart

no fat lady in sight
we may think it's over
but thought is overrated
masks baby masks

big fog this morning
oh, not outside
here
inside my facsimile of a brain
all the words I try to type
come out a mess
so i fix them each
and that takes time
and concentration, and I tell myself
this is good exercise
for your new brain
just keep at it, 'cause you know what they say
Use it
or Lose it....
Resistance
is the key I feel
never lay down
try try try to improve
and flourish
and ...well....do something
Say
something
express all that comes a travelin'
through
on its way to
Hell
if I know
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading
