Dreams can come true

A photograph
Is like a dream
 What we deem
Should come true
If what we've seen
In the eye
Of our mind
Is brought to fruition
By brushes on canvas
By words upon paper
By cameras poised
To create and record
 What we wrestle
And wring
From the heart
Of our heart
To bring it to life.

The Shape of Things to Come

Ev'rybody's talking 'bout
A problem in our land
It's big and getting bigger
It's almost out of hand!

They say I'm eating way too much
Junk food, snacks and sweets
My heart is working overtime
My system overheats!

The problem is I'm spreading out
It's called obesity
I shouldn't be all that surprised
When all I do is eat!

So, I'm going on a diet now
I'm down to eating crumbs
'Cause looking in the mirror I saw
The shape of things to come!

The Mystery

There are times
When it would seem
A mystery hovers in the void
To make its presence known
In ways both banal
And profound
 Before my eyes of stone.
I have found it 
Quite impossible
To believe
In magic or in mystery
Or in the grand delusion
Of gods up in the sky
Their nosy noses poking
Knife-like, carving up the lives
Of the people of the earth --
The sons and daughters of
A spartan evolution
A momentary birthing
Which all too soon
Collapses into mystery itself --
The uncomprehending
And uncaring, often cruel

Growing Old

Growing old
Does not
Make you
A sage or
Growing old
Merely means
You somehow
To stay
