The birdies are all here

distraction abounds

young hatchlings test wings

screeches, the sounds

We attempt to keep up

as time rushes past

but to stay in the moment

one need not move fast

All fall back, in this tree

of summer days gone by

 the new, shared with songs

’til again, some will fly

HPIM3415

Flew in the sky

saw the cloud sea

Rode the swift rails

falling asleep

Sat on the top shelf

when not hopping off

Raced through the ground

hanging on, so tough

Walked miles and miles

up stairs and down

Then in ten different ways

repeated, to the first town

 After days of a dozen

zigzagged our way back

to the real wide world

with its own set of tracks

I want to be loved

therefore, you want to be loved

I want to love

you, will I love

I want love

I love

you want love

I, will you love

you want to love

therefore, I want to be loved

you want to be loved

What’s in your head

No wonder it aches

Your pillow can’t hold it

and shoulders do break

Clear your mind (he says)

There’s erasers, bulldozers, explosions

Speculate on the method, since

some could cause a bit of erosion

Once you’ve got it figured out

you can then, go on to bed

where you will have made room for

the lovely, buried dreams, still

waiting inside your head

We must grow a bit, when

our hearts are too big

Soon, they will fit back

inside our vests, less prone

to unforeseen elements, than

on outer clothing; well cushioned

in the event of a huge blow

This, keeping all parts contained, allows

for no missing pieces, when finally

we are able to locate the best type of glue

It’s hard to let go of someone

of course, letting go means

you thought that, once

you held them near

If your jumbled mind is all-a-clutter

retrieve your heart’s shards from the dark gutter

Speak over the chaos with no hint of a stutter

 so the wings of your soul can begin to flutter

Then wait for the wisp of a gentle breeze

Let it lift your spirit from its knees

to twirl in dance as it sets free

a mended heart; a mind at ease
