THE UNPLANNED JOURNEY
JOHN M. ARRIBAS
I had a great breakfast gave a nice tip to the girl
I was late, had to swerve to avoid hitting a squirrel
I was really lucky when I crossed the yellow line
Days of the year
swale, birthday, blessing, celebration, cheer up, christian, poetry,
The days of the year has quickly flown by
collecting aspects of serenity in the clouds,
for passing storms to stir the tremulous sky,
and try to make futility multiply in floods.
But from under gloom...
swale, introspection, life, nature,
There's a gift that man has, that's uniquely our own,
not in fishes, nor birds, nor beasts that do roam.
And we doubt that in Heaven, where matter is not,
that Angels can touch, this wet little dot.
swale, break up, change,
Waking to that familiar fabric of dawn, pink-hued
Hewn from the previous black quilted night
It dawns on me:
At a time, it shall prevail
upon us all, the unwelcome blessing of suffering
And you will feel like
A feather in...
up a steep and narrow road
reach the tops
wilderness reclaims a verge
of wintery snags
land juts and tilts
clumps and hags
pitch up stricken soil
heap above the miry troughs
loud the heartbeat
nearer to feral thought
then any mouth...
Epitaph to a Happy Mosquito
swale, cowboy-western, funny, nature, me, me,
T'was a warm summer's day, when I took to the trail,
to cruise that old black spruce, way down in the swale.
A gallon of bug dope was strapped on my hip,
which I figured would last me...
"sizes matter" chirped the hatter before
popping the size 8 and 1/4 on his head
and jumping theatrically into his bed
hat and clothes all snuggled into dreams
"things aren't always what they seem"
he muttered as he drifted...
A Tale of Survival
swale, childhood, growing up, child, child, me, universe,
A naive grasshopper
spun in the death web of a starving wolf spider,
Providing hours of facination and wonder to the curious child
He too must learn survival of the fittest
the laws and rules his...
Beyond the paved two-lane with its solid centerline,
and bounded by NO TRESPASS signs;
beyond the turn-off onto gravel and the last barking dog
who keeps pace with my hubcap;
to a landing where I park...
A Winter Sun
swale, snow, sun, winter,
Upon this yearly powdered dale,
where leafless birch in talon-ed stance
come begging in their circumstance,
the snowflakes fell in silent veil
as thick as densely woven cloth
to gale a new year's behemoth.
While seeking warmth to no avail
swale, animal, food, pain,
You may not know
I have the worlds biggest toe
I also have a gigantic frown
The biggest frown ever seen around
I dropped a slimy creek stone and it went splat
And flattened my great toe quite painfully flat
Cause of Fate
swale, life, love, , fate,
I do not know?
A drop of water spun from its cause
Spilled into the ocean bewildered of its loss
“Won’t you tell me what the angels sing?
To forget sorrows and follies against the summer wind
Through October’s fall, and winter’s squall
A FULL MOON NIGHT
swale, childhood, nature, nostalgia, seasons,
The moon, pausing near her zenith,
On that balmy night in May,
Painted a warm, nocturnal landscape,
In varying shades gray.
A mockingbird insomniac,
With golden harp did play,
And serenade his lady love
With songs as bright as day.
swale, environment, humanity, science, society,
Design denies divine
Railroaded by a petulant narrative
Observe the perfection of a creation undone
Injection deserving celebration by the hallowed of darkness
On every point, a bug defeats the purpose
Which by design the chemistry assigned precludes
Swept into the...
