Moving Forward ~ #Poem


Sometimes you have to start over
To appreciate what you once had
In order to get everything back
While learning to move boulders

Resist temptations of let’s pretend
Sweep expectations under the rug
Stuff fears in the closet with a shove
Organize thoughts into neat little bins

Although they’re my burdens to carry
I’d rather leave em dead and buried
To deal with hauntings over my shoulder
As a soldier, constantly moving forward

Never really looking ahead, nor back
Caught by surprise, at the time of attack
Fighting the panic cause I’ll handle it
With support & dedication that never quits

Doomed bloom

Even the itsy bitsy spider
Found himself tired and uninspired
Climbing up that water-spout
Just to be washed back out

He gave it a lot of thought
Before deciding to take off
For an environment that inspires
To feel a life full of blissful desire

It was on a warm spring day
He set out and made his way
To a Meyers Lemon Saloon
Checked himself into a bloom

Spun a deceitful web of doom
Luring all his lovelies with perfume

Super Bloom 💐 🦋


On my paid commute
I’ve seen it a time or two
The California “Super Bloom”

I’ve even been blindsided
By the breathtaking migrants
Causing an array of excitement

Enthralled by the views (and news)
Billions of butterflies & touristy pursuits
I took this lousy picture for you
