Time Untrue

During the winter’s tempest
snow blowing
winds roaring through our ears
time seems to cease
for all that blankets
is pure white 
as far as the eye can see.
No longer green hills
no longer warm summer breezes
locked within Father Winter’s grasp
there is no where to go.
As children
snow held not the bone chilling 
heart stopping
iciness it possesses now 
as adults
facing a world of danger and uncertainty.
Slowly winter has buried all lands
eradicating sunlight
warmth
reality
appreciation
morals
truth
as we all bend to the Winter King’s wrath.
Do we need to though?
Could we not recapture 
the passion had as children
when horrors penetrated not our minds?
When we had no thought of war
of atrocities
perpetrated in the name of……
God/Allah
of devastation
of peoples displaced 
left to fend
care for themselves in a bloody world
so enraptured with itself
that humanity is being forgotten?
Naive we are not.
Yet there are times 
when looking 
when hearing
when seeing
the demons running this era
that all wish they could return…..
to those blessed days
when one was young
with no cares in this world
beyond being home when mom called
or the streetlights began to appear.

Untitled Word of the Day Poem #22

‘Hey diddle diddle
the cat and the fiddle
the cow jumped over the moon……..’
We are asked to believe
to admit
that there is more
that life is not as we know it
but built upon fairy tales
strata
layers
ring upon ring
marking each day
each decade
each century.
Kings have swung.
Queens have lost their heads.
Bowing before common ground
see the Devil
swear to be his bride
if only
he turns
looks the other way
let me flail
drown
second guess
before scooping me free.
Sorry am I
rhymes spill off my tongue
no one wants
this girl
woman
easier to call bitch
build a wall
a jail
keep away
a game we play.
Guess why I do
what I do.
Do you see?
Without me
he would devour the earth.
I submit to sin
to anger
rage
black soul
devoured
bright light
scoring my mind
crawl forward
blind
I believe
I know
I guess
I am the world’s Queen
able to eradicate fear
pain
bloated
sucking in the darkness
bow before
sickened
gorged on death
I fall……
Good bye
so long
fade away
do I
thank you for the memories.
