Once In a Lifetime


 Shakespeare in Love,' thou is now an actual love story - Chicago ...

Once in a lifetime we experience
true magic, making love with
words, touching with nouns,
kissing verbs

let's compose a lyrical song
inject it with love rocking
the inner chambers of our
hearts

let's write a sonnet unlock
the secret passageway to our
soul, making  Shakespeare
blush in our chosen form

let's dream under moonlight
entwined in the arms of fantasy
sail into the winds of adventure
let love be our guiding star
into a sea of ecstasy

once in a lifetime we experience
true magic on the stage of
imagination, a troubadour sings
and a poetess falls into his songs
notes forever captured in time

Spring's Patience



 spring's elusive peace
wading in patient waters
gulping in moments
sunfish scatter in ripples
bedding dreams of tomorrow

We Need a Fix Not a Bag of Tricks

Who can fix a troubled planet
earth seems to be spinning
out of control

Jupiter and Mars aligns in
the night, full moon plays
with our emotional tides

Venus kisses the earth
with lights of love
healing broken hearts

tomorrow is a new day!

Cancelled Dreams of Yesterday

  I.
summer theater
doors of yesterday now locked
nature center stage

II.
orchestra of birds
singing chorus of new life
ghosts fill empty seats

III.
cancelled spring music
free your imagination
sing songs from your heart

author's note:  Seeing this photo made me think
of all the cancelled summer concerts.
The good news,  we still have music in many forms.
