Poem 22 - The World is Too Much With Us

The world goes spinning past us every day,
A crazy, non-stop merry-go-round ride.
Each moment too full of things we must hide -
Stumbling and dizzy, we must find our way;
Knowing we haven't time to act out this play.
Behind the scenes, the darkness abides
Full of the terrors time has cast aside,
Awaiting the moment we must stop and stay.
The ride stops; the curtain falls; and we see -
A jumble of used up nothings crowding
Forward; pushing into the candid light.
This space we thought ours, we filled with debris;
An unthinking testament. We fling

Poem 21 - A'Tuin

a turtle rises
behind cows in a field
it's shell made of grass
speckles of sagebrush dotting
this small, but great, A'Tuin

Poem 20 - This Easter

Easter eggs are so much fun!
This one's green, it must be mine.
This one's blue! I have this one!

I like chocolate, it is fine.
I can eat this egg and more!
Look - these cars are in a line!

Gramps! You must open up the door!
There's the snow for me to play in.
Why is smashing snow a chore?

I'll put the cars into this bin.
I can do this game all day,
If I do it fast, I'll win!
I wish that we could always stay.

Poem 19 - A Shell by Any Other Name

Lazarus Jewel Box
Should be something to preserve life without pox
A fancy coated piece of wood
Full of magical crystals that are good

Poem 18 - Weasley in Training

Back yard? Front yard? Go!
Escape fast and quietly
Mischief managed!

Poem 16 - And Tired

Sitting in a car
Is fine for short
Car rides that last all day
Know what that causes?

Poem 15 - Truth In Advertising

This is not me, I do not yell
Relentless as an alarm bell
Unknown who is this horrid mom
This is not me, I do not yell
How hard is it to get to school, tell?

Lay down those toys, now listen please
I need to brush your teeth with ease
Each time I call, no answer comes
So your attention I will seize

Make each morning more stressful still
Open the cupboard and let it spill
This is not me, I do not yell
Hurry now to beat the bell
Each time I call, no answer comes
Release me from this pounding drum
Hurry now to beat the bell
Open the cupboard and let it spill

Poem 14 - Economics

The sun does shine
on fields of snow
The grass is brown
Everywhere I go

The sky is blue
The clouds are pink
It's a little Seuss
Well, what do you think?

The pavement's white
My bike is orange
I can pedal fast
And that isn't strange

A bunch of things
that could be so
Are they now?
Do you know?

Poem 13 - Rain

Rain all around
umbrellas here
at sea

This poem is an erasure.

Poem 12 - Passage of Time

The passage of time is unstoppable
A clock that need never be wound
To see it is just philosophical

In the fall of a leaf from a tree to the ground
Watching a moment slowly unfolding
Comes something infinite and profound

The gravity of what we are beholding
Not less in quietness than in chaos
A panicked instant - a child's scolding

Wheels stop a breathe away from a seance
Time that is burned into the heart and mind
In calm reflection or emotion's embrace

Ever forward, but held inside,
Each of us marking a chronicle
The pages of our face to be lined
