sometimes

little galaxies

fall from

the night sky

and swirl

to the ground

sometimes

powdered stardust

borne on

the cosmic wind

settles

on our world

sometimes

it’s a mass

invasion

of tiny aliens

hanging

from parachutes

sometimes

a blizzard of

asteroids

in your headlights

threatens

your spacecraft

sometimes

True Colors

blue rose

I know it is said

That roses are red

And violets are blue–

But neither is true.

 

The colors we see

Are only reflected;

Those that the flowers

So promptly rejected,

And those they absorb

Cannot be detected.

 

It is said, too, I know

That our true colors show

And people see through–

But neither is true.

Giving Thanks

301_deployed_soldiers_thanksgiving

Just a short poem

For our soldiers now living

Too far from home

To be here for Thanksgiving

We know your heart aches

For we feel it too

Your empty chair makes

It so sad without you

To use a cliche

Freedom comes with a price

So we thank you this day

For your great sacrifice
