I Don’t Have To Do Anything

Quite Thoughts ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t have to write anything
Nor do I need to say
Kind or bitter words
I don’t have to do anything

Maybe tomorrow
In that different day
Things will be different
They’ll change from
What I do today.

But tomorrow
I’ll deal with it on that day
Because I don’t have to
Do anything, anything

The Virus Spreads

The virus spreads
Rearing it’s ugly head
All across
An unsuspecting land.

No one knows
Where it will go
Only know its come.

It’s infectious spread
Across a frightened land.

Holding Still, Holding Fast

Holding still, holding fast
Waiting, waiting For the terrible, the bad
To pass.

Then the sun will shine, rivers flow
Lives will live, love and give
To all they know.

In It’s Grip

March 13, 2020

We’re ‘In It’s Grip’ but not the weather. Stay safe and well

In it’s grip
It’s grip so tight
Hearing ice crack
As limbs fight to stay aloft
In the cruel, bleak night
Sparks shoot into the sky
Wires break, electricity dies.

We wait for help, to understand
A world changed, transformed
Across our little plot of land.
No cell phone works
No lights come on
Except from generators
Throttled up, throttled down.

While chainsaws roar cross the land
We do our best
To clean up, to understand.

The Beginning, The End

Can’t see the beginning
Nor the end
Looking for the answer
Not knowing the question.

Heartache Felt

Heartache felt
Across the world, the land
Will everything be right

No remorse, only sorrow fills
The body of the man
Lost to the family he once loved
In his home, his homeland.

No more laughter fills the air
Only fracture, anger, loneliness
Misery shared.

The kiss of love turned to death
Same tomorrow
No future
No one cares.

The Answer

I don’t know the answer
The way

Only thing I can do
Is have faith
Move forward
On my path


It is the answer
It is the way.
