April 15 #15 Poem a Day

3 posts in this topic

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

 

exhausted runner

on last stretch of marathon

legs buckled by blast

 

flash-boom billows smoke

spilling red blood on sidewalk

responders rush in --------------- --jvg
