Paradox

Everyday’s a little bit shadow
Everyday’s a little dark
And when the night comes
She will break your heart

The river’s always rising
The sun sinks into the sea
On the horizon
Distance is close to me

Forever is a long time
When only a day will do
The road you carry
Is the you that is you

It’s a long winter’s night now
And the snow is on the ground
Soon the world will melt
When spring comes around

Cat-ness

Crazy little cat
Crazy little cat
All cat with your cat-ness

You sleep when you sleep
You purr when you purr
You eat when you eat
You is and always were

Crazy little cat
Crazy little cat
All cat with your cat-ness

A meow is a meow
A tail is a tail
Cat talk and cat speak,
“I’m really very well.”

Crazy little cat
Crazy little cat
All cat with your cat-ness

A tongue is a tongue
To use for cleaning
Then you’re lying down
For some cat dreaming

Crazy little cat
Crazy little cat
All cat with your cat-ness

The sun is a friend
Everyday, everyday
Its light a lullaby
Everything’s okay

Crazy little cat
Crazy little cat
All cat with your cat-ness

The moon comes out
You’re ready to play
To jump and you run
And to have your say.

Crazy little cat
Crazy little cat
All cat with your cat-ness

Nuptials

Inspire by Psalm 19.

Each dusk Moon appears,
a bride dressed in light.
Stars carry her train.

She walks in radiance
the aisle from evening
toward the dawn

and the altar of morning
to meet Sun, her groom.
Along her journey she smiles

upon Earth and her children.
And Earth returns her smile.
Flowers bend her way.

Trees raise their limbs,
toasting her generosity.
A rabbit gazes

awestruck by her beauty.
And a couple
strolls along the Seine,

bathed in her blessing.

haiku for the day: slowing down

Ever walk down a city street all lit up with light. It is such a world of wonder. Our eyes take in the magic and tears well up. It is such a beautiful scene. All that light and beauty. Especially after rain. Could it be that there’s a whole world out there that we never imagined? And it’s just for us. Makes us wonder why we don’t just stop and take it all in. Instead we hurry to our latest destination.

haiku for the day: going to sleep

I’ve never been one who dreams a lot. At least, as far as I can tell. I mean science tells us that we all dream. I just can’t remember most of mine. When I was a kid, I do remember a nightmare. I was being chased by a large black bear on a roller coaster. If you’ve ever been on a roller coaster and chased by a large black bear, you know how scary that can be. Occasionally I wake up in the middle of a dream. My imagination takes over and I continue participating in the story of the dream. Guess that comes from making up stories.

drifting off to sleep
right eye open, left eye closed
dreams standing in line
