Cough Syrup Wanderings

Dreams still wander through my cloudy mind
Dreams odd and broken, bits and pieces
Dreams interrupted by racking coughs
Shake the body awake, steal back to day
Cough Syrupy dreams in the middle of the day.

Pup Dog Guard

Little pup dog
Snores by my side
Watchin' over me
Chasin' the monsters
From my dreams.

Spring Dance

The day is bright
The sky to lovely
To describe
Winter has gone
Finally cast aside
Sing Huzzah, Yippee
Dance the wild dance
Muddy Paws of Spring.

Precious Memories

If you could somehow walk back
Push aside the gossamer curtains of time
Step back to a half forgotten place you've been
Go inside a memory to relive it again
Would you, could you should you go?
Will it be the same as you remember
Will the light shine as bright
The night be as velvety dark
Will kisses be near as sweet
Hurts, will they cut as deep?
If you could could somehow walk back
Would the reality be a precious as memories?

Bird Song

The eastern sky is still dark
Yet birds have started singing
They seem to wait, to take a cue
And then begin to wake
Ruffled feathers, stretching wings
Then they hop to another branch
Beaks open and waiting for a nod
Morning steps in sight just then
Spring smiles gently and sighs
Dawn lifts her glory onto the stage
Then joyous, the birds begin!

Insulated Wombs

The world is a secret treasure, hidden in plain sight
So few stop to see it, to ponder day or night
They wrap themselves, lock themselves inside
Insulate themselves, even to take a ride.
Folks seem to think they're comfy in their electronic wombs
Yet as they hide inside their boxes it seems more like their tombs.
