Tough Love

fight

My brother used to beat me

My mother used a switch

My wife cut up my yearbook

My kids must think I’m rich

My grandkids overrun me

And cause me daily strife–

I guess it’s pretty obvious

I’ve been loved all my life

in the pine forest

a white blank canvas awaits

spring’s water colors

the drifter

findrift

 

the drifter came

without a name

on crashing waves

one night

and there he stood

this man of wood

in morning’s cool

sunlight

he stands and stares

but never shares

¬†what he’s looking

for

i guess someday

he’ll drift away

to find another

shore
