April 15 #15 Poem a Day

April 15

So it's here
a day off from the office
a cool breeze blows off the ocean
a sparrow hops onto my stepping stone
a single white rose blooms
a poem is whirling in my head
a cup of coffee sits steaming on my desk
a text from my son saying "'morning Mom"
and Oh Yeah.....
the deadline for filing 2012 taxes
and two bombs explode at Boston Marathon.

I'm guessing that another date will be defined by another horror event, but that it is the everyday normal things that will continue to win over such horror.

I think you are right Badge, we need to cherish each ordinary thing.

 

#16 Poem a Day  Marathon haiku

exhausted runner
on last stretch of marathon
legs buckled by blast

flash-boom billows smoke
spilling red blood on sidewalk
responders rush in -
