Last Day of the Last Year


The Last Sunset

Last Day of the Last Year

on the last day, of the last year
we will wait at dusk in awe and fear
the cold sky colors will become too warm
the clouds will begin to take strange form

naysayers have predicted a year of gloom
so we will run for shelter in a hidden room
to live inside ourselves each day
where we will not watch those news-casts play

we will wonder what will come to pass
beyond the plains, and dried out grass
our tides might flood the shores and banks
armies might deploy lasers on their tanks

but who’s to say it will be bad
that we will become raving mad
they say the planets will align
but it could be just seven, not all nine

if this coming year, truly is last
if our futures have already been cast
then the last year, is also rebirth
resulting in a much better earth

Desert Canopy


Autumn Trees on Newgrove

Desert Canopy

sparse hidden life
shaded from tormenting sun
crawling, hovering and hopping
in the early dawn and night

  air clean
  air clear
air oh so dry

in town
man-made oasis
filters radiance

dense canopy
deciduous color
