Life Lessons

Cold rage

burst like

Molten lava

on clueless

head, spewing

so white

from dark

mottled face

livid

 

 

 

bewildered

wondered

about trigger

Clueless,

Independence’s back

against wall

heart

palpitating

frightened bird

 

 

domination is

an ugly word

spirit soul

hibernate

hapless, dead

shell enacts

motions of life

waiting for better

clime, happier time

 

 

widow weeds

need no pity

life gives grit

hold your pity

bird of hope

sings a ditty

spirit soul

wake up to

own self

 

 

there is reason

for everything in

life’s sweater, you

are but one stitch

holding others on

right side, left

interdependent, best

be an orchard

blossoming life

 

 

weathering

inclement

times, stiffens

spine, silvers

hair, fighting

despair, play

possum, floating

in amniotic fluid

for buoyancy
