Abuse Them and You'll Lose Them

Things...
Happen every season,
For reasons.

Things...
Can knot,
Or untie tight strings.
Abuse them and you'll lose them.

And,
Things...
Can freeze a warm heart,
Stone cold.
Few connivers can survive this,
And things...
Can sometimes never thaw,
No more!

Those things...
Happen every season,

A kiss

Lips,
Magnets,
Locked in to,
A melting alloy;
Nuances of pink;
Dewy and swollen
Soggy pouts;
In the brink,
Of thawing in to,
The perfection of bliss.

Suicide Snowman

If I had time to kill the world I'd try
Oh no, but I'm busy
Killing me
I don't have time to build a suicide
Because the snowman melts in spring
The striper girls will not be coming back
In the summer...for me
I don't have time to even say goodbye
We are dying as winter lives
Spring
Snow melts in my lawn and I am free
Corn cob pipe and a button nose
Bottled in the ground too long
Snow melts in my lawn and I am....
If I had time to kill the world I'd try
But I'm busy
Kill is ever me
I don't have time to even say goodbye
We are dying as winter lives
Spring

Thaw

Over the land freckled with snow half-thawed
The speculating rooks at their nests cawed
And saw from elm-tops, delicate as flowers of grass,
What we below could not see, Winter pass.

It's dumb to put snow on the kitchen spit, the snow melts and the fire goes out.

One swallow does not make a summer, but one skein of geese, cleaving the murk of March thaw, is the Spring.

A Glove

A lonely look comes
From a ghost foot print
In the snow
Departed my love
A thawing feeling
I paused...
The first flower of spring
Its color caught the corner
Of my eye
The cold left
On its icy road
Far beyond.

Henry David Thoreau

Thaw with her gentle persuasion is more powerful than Thor with his hammer. The one melts, the other breaks into pieces.

Wintery Blush

Wintery Blush.

The street was cold snow had yet to fall, asphalt frozen pearly grey and
pavement tiles cracked underfoot. The sky was limp clear, the sun was
but a decoration, a miserable yellow balloon not taken down after
the New Year party. From the insipid sky hung icicles the sun couldn’t
thaw, but solar reflections made them look like sparkling diamonds.
A frozen painting of isolated beauty, of an unbridgeable haughtiness
that knew of no compassion. White clouds gathered looking as a flock
of polar bears waking over their future demise. But their warm breaths
thawed the icicles that fell like snow, covered the land; and my untidy
garden appears equal to the neat ones.

Thaw

The rain falls, washing
The soft, downy snow away.
The white ground covers
In gray and swampy puddles.
A chill of an air
Wisps across the thawing land,
Blowing the silence
To the wayside. My window
Soaks, flushed by a tapping stream.

The Iceman Cometh

CIA broke out the hair dryer
To thaw out poor old Osama
Obama couldn’t find a buyer
To buy into the staged drama

Upon the Lawn - 0088 - Initial Version

Upon the lawn there lay last night
a crystal carpet, cotton white,
soon morn shall dawn with golden ray
and spirit all the snow away.
Yet with a little luck we might
enjoy the sight and share delight,
and if snow thaws, as well it may,
we know we will recall this day.

(23 June 1975)

Revival is A Boost

The more I loved her the more I thirsted.
The more I pursued the more she thawed.
Had I not been struck, had she not been knotted,
We would have been knotted, tightly knotted.
I heard she was fervent to get my verses.
My hormones are once more in spate thanks to her.

13: 00 Predicament

There are songs I'll never sing
And places I would shun
For when the night fell
Unto the prolix limbo
Of timelessness and infinitude
All these memories thawed
Before it amalgamates -
An unjust jeopardy
In this savage world
Of tigers and vultures
Caught in the same trap

The Silence Of The Snow

tio peping walks with his grandchild
six inches of snow
above their feet

it is cold, i suppose,
but the smiles of grandpa and grandson
thaws the coldness
inside their hearts


outside
at night, the fires of tiny stars give
enough warmth
to keep some tiny creatures going
till the next spring

Icicles Shed Such Pointless Tears

too afraid to ever thaw
the unknowing icicle
frigid as the wind
clings precariously
suspended in fear
of both the ocean
and the cloud

Upon the Lawn - 0088 - Current Version

Upon our powder lawn tonight
bright crystal carpet, cotton white,
soon morn may dawn, spawn golden ray
to spirit sprinkled snow away.
.
Yet with a little luck we might
enjoy the sight and share delight,
until snow thaws in April, May,
with Jack Frost lost to glass display.

Out There

out there
you find sunshine
it will make a tan
out of your fair skin
out there the sea
it has a song for you
the breeze thaws
what is frozen in you
out there
is another person
waiting for your kiss
out there
another heart beats
for you
out there
a tight bud waits
for your touch
so it may bloom
a flower
for you.

Living Within Reduced Means

Variety may be the spice of life...
For those who can choose,
Whether or not...
To have beans and rice,
With a taste for steak.
Thawing to roast and bake,
In a pre-heated oven.

Some today see variety as a luxury.
And preparing rice and beans,
Has become a daily ritual.
Since fixed budgets,
Have arrived on their scenes.

Living within reduced means,
Is a reality for many that has demeaned.
And those still fortunate to have variety,
In their lives...
Stretch limited paychecks,
Realizing they have no idea...
