Premium Member Hunkering Down

Hibernation is the name of the game As we hunker down today from the rain 200 mph winds were sustained In that Mexican hurricane Best let it blow over as to a lamp post we're chained © Jack Ellison 2015

Premium Member A Major Heat Advisory

There's a heat advisory in the frozen north Must take precautions as we go forth Need to hunker down Or in sweat we will drown Dangerous times as the temperature soars © Jack Ellison 2015

Cold World
Cold World
  Blizzards pass, storms ensue,
  Snowy paths, guide my view.
  Where roaring winds are in pursuit, 
  my heart is where hope is imbued.
  Laying the bedding, in earth’s full view,
  I hunker down, and slumber ensues.
  Where hope is, I am in pursuit, 
  For this cruel world is in need of review.

Premium Member Sunrise Shivers
Sunrise shivers
slowly streaking
frozen fields 
grasses huddled
against icy winds.

Silent sparrows
hunker down
awaiting the angst
of an unfocused
feeble warmth.

A cat scratches
at the door
a cold draft.

that pesky grey squirrel
in its fluffy tail.

a reluctant sun
hoar frost hard edges
with golden

THE PERFORMANCE She’s a dancer ready to chronograph her next move. The chair is her boogie down stool. Her hand synthesis the groove. She looks as if her depths are being used. Her arm is amalgamated to the symphony sounds in the room. She squats in a hunker down pose to expose her sensual core. Yes, she desires to be an instrumental part of the performance. _______________________________________________________| Written February 27, 2016!

Hunkered Down Written: by Miracle man 3-26-2020 We currently are facing an uncertain future, nothing like my eighty-one years has seen yet. Wounds beyond closing with staple or suture, providing the world reasons, for many to fret. Let our faith assures us that “this too shall pass” and until that happens we must all hunker down. individually it seems worse for the aging class, prayer won’t cause glower but reduces your frown.

Social Distancing (on St. Patrick’s Day) Written: by Miracle Man 3-17-2020 Today i had intended to be robed in green, And yet I sit at home under self quarantine. COVID-19 has caused unusually rough sledding, Trying to avoid, perhaps some super spreading. This self isolation, brings to my face a frown, But by those knowing best, I’m urged to hunker down. While many work feverously, behind the scene, I’m a fusty old man not wearing any green.

Premium Member hate and crazy
most crimes have a foundation 
of desperation or hate
what is your foundation made of
are you desperate-do you hate
would you take a life for a crystal ball-
is your hate based on jealousy-revenge
where are your prayers -discipline
and what about the truly insane
do we let them work out their kinks
on our soft underbellies
do we lock them away....
as we speak
there's a pair of crazy eyes
heading for the school
nothing we can do
but hunker down
and pray for

Premium Member A SNOW DAY COMES
A Snow day comes.

Snowfall impedes our mobility.
Now some venture out to test their ability.
Our streets and yards are pristine white.
We're trapped 'neath Winter's cold, grey light.

Don't venture out on a day like this,
As Old Man Winter shakes his fist.
You wait for the snow plough, this is no jest.

Come bake some cookies or play a board game;
Or shovel the walk way till you've got the blains.
Most hunker down by the fire to stay warm.
Even rabbits stay in on this chilly morn.

First Shall Be Last
don't live today
what was learned
learned well once
can't be unlearned

stuck in a rut
thoughts bouncing
bound train tracks
one way ticket

purchased years ago
for this line only
now still validated
long lost reasons

don't confuse me
by words or action
hunker down hide
not a drop of truth

will i drink today
pound if you must
defenses multipy
since you're not aware

that i don't know
but a peak shows
i've seen your hand
you write the last line
