2-28-19

Sprouting like wild weeds
Daffodils and daffy dill
Spring greens and yellow

2-27-19

Lead and serve? No, he
Just rules — robs “nobility”
Of class and meaning

2-26-19

Careless words strewn like
Stogies, figuratively
And litter-al-ly

2-25-19

A bag of cough drops,
A jar of Vicks — cold comfort
In these viral days

2-24-19

Amazing what one
Can get done while avoiding
More odious tasks

2-23-19

Always more to find
We search again, discover
Why it’s called research

2-22-19

Lost inside myself
Introspection’s lone journey
Knows no GPS

2-21-19

The day’s colors fade
Then concentrate, reignite
For their parting blaze

2-20-19

Gray drizzle at dawn
The shrouded Earth awakens
So begrudgingly

2-19-19

Can a Tex-Mex joint
Offer hard-shell tacos at
Its soft opening?

2-18-19

Blueberry lingers
In its breakfast bowl milk bath
Till the spoon’s last scoop

2-17-19

Can an open heart
Share enough love, light and hope
To change a closed mind?

2-16-19

Boundaries, barriers
A fine line between those lines
Of health and hindrance

2-15-19

Seems the only thing
I can never put off is
Procrastination

2-14-19

Brokenhearted know
The real price of love, know they
Will pay it again

2-13-19

Break down or break through
Something has to change when you
Reach a breaking point

2-12-19

Problems of my own
The last thing I need is a
Psycho therapist

2-11-19

Need to talk things out,
Decompress — thank God for my
Psychotherapist

2-10-19

Brown Latina limbs
White legs of a Northern Girl
Walk new paths as one

2-9-19

Reason all you wish
No argument or logic
Persuades pain to stop

2-8-19

Land of the free, home
Of the brave? Sorry, it’s closed
Show your papers, please

2-7-19

Possibilities:
Things get better; things get worse
With luck, things get weird

2-6-19

“Bargain in good faith”
“Compromise with us” — liars
Sing their siren song

2-5-19

Trauma in boxes
Pack it, move it, but that stuff
Follows you around

2-4-19

Stoic grandfather
Six-day weeks, packing house floor
And never a beef

2-3-19

Soft sweater’s caress
Warm, gentle — almost as good
As a human touch

2-2-19

Greg’s law of motion:
When feet with joy are dancing
The heart must follow

2-1-19

When there is no love
Hope dies; faith dies; it all dies
There is only death
