Biting Wind

On the sleeping grass

the biting wind meets the leaves.

One Early Morning

lights peek through the fog

on the eerie interstate

early morning mist

Do not say, “I can’t”

When you really mean, “I won’t”

Wakey wake, cup cake.

what is the future

but an echo of the past?

Slippery Joy

This joy deflated

that dude Robert Frost was right

“Nothing gold can stay.”
