time travel

she time
travelled
while traveling
herself
~
unraveling
“relativity”
relatively
sanguine
~
mind
bounced back
from where it’d
bolted
~
left
behind
hardly
mattered
~
pickled
pink Mad-hatter
thoughts went
belly-up
~
moments
inexorably
getting
up-gobbled
~
time
won’t
come full
stop
~
waiting
at life’s cross-roads
I cartwheel wooing
time and life
~
at end
of day
nothing
really matters!

life, stand up comic

~
Do forgive
me LIFE
you are
always
so
funny
~
this wayward
heart is constantly
engaged in many “undo’s”
much to mind’s
chagrins
rue
~
tethering
it
like a handful
baby
I
calm
it with much
cherished
brew
~
when
life
gives
heartburn
I
drink
tea
!

thief of time

time
taught

~
no longer
stressed
taut

~
I dip
hand
in time’s
pocket
stealing
lifetimes’
worth
of
timely
living
in
moments
from
time

roast

frida_kahlo_1

armed
with dental
hygienist tools
mind carefully pries
loose fallen
aborted, bruised
hidden in interstices

~
close
scrutiny provides
assurances
these thoughts
are still relevant
well within “dated”
expirations
~
kid gloved
palms gently
skewer
retrieved
prepping for sear
over fired coals
heaped
~
flames
flare flamenco
taps as emotions
pop crackle
roasting to near
perfection for dared
daring
~
end
result
yields
rare,
medium rare
well done
burnt
~
leap of faith
has me diving
headlong
in cyber space
with firmly pinned
roasted bytes
of heart’s flesh
~
primed
pen
paper
in hand
am ready
for
orders
~
Painting is by Frida Kahlo

streets

nature’s confetti
strewn pavements
corridors hold own
allures
~
sniffing air
lifting eyes
I seek sky
beyond trees
~
feet
optimistically
fold streets
till endings
~
every ending
supposedly is
a new beginning
till dead ends
~
dead ends
make head take
stock, suddenly spirit
soars taking off
~
