The American Dream

The dull droning of the air Conditioner blends sweet Chemicals through my hair. We all just want the American Dream, but shouldn't the  cost cause us to care?  Whats enough? Enough to fill A tank of gas or buy Her a round of shots? Enough for rings And shiny things, Or how about robots? From … Continue reading The American Dream

“Smartphones”

Advertise yourself,  Like the drugs on TV.  Filter out the bad, S'all good as can be. Like the like for a like, What a virtual bash. Your tempered glass, Bursts in a colorful flash. Notifying of attention, Letting go of time. Try your luck and Throw the lottery a dime.

Breathe

When the wind takes you,  Let the breath go.  Trees move lazily,  Under the first winter's snow.  A pinecone trembles,  Shaking on a stem. To break or not, Is a seeds only whim. Only the nothing, Can verify it's being. What's invisible to the eye Has no less being.

2084 [Worldbuilding Wednesday]

The world ended on 2084. The Earth didn't explode or get hit by a giant meteor. The sun and the moon were still spinning in their celestial tracks. The zombie plague had not gone viral. In fact, those few who had survived the end of the world often scratched their heads after and asked, "How … Continue reading 2084 [Worldbuilding Wednesday]

Face – 50 word poem [Tranquil Tuesday/Thursday]

Face your life head on, While rolling with the punches Be still as a lake But don't bend like willows Or one day soon break.   Face your fears head on, They are a hidden gift What frightens is really light Like lighthouses save sailors adrift on a dark moon night.     This was really … Continue reading Face – 50 word poem [Tranquil Tuesday/Thursday]
