Quell It, Zealot

How can love be wrong,
and hate considered right?
Threatening damnation,
believing out of fright.

Hollow conversation,
waving signs, and yelling out
won’t do us any good,
won’t get rid of valid doubt.

Forsake condemning words,
allow kindness to wash over.
Friendship is more important
than being a seedless sower.

kindness remains as hearts disagree,
love dissolves all hatred in due time.

For Love of Autumn

As summer departs
along with you,
the gray takes over
what once was blue.

I will admit,
I love the rain,
but I’ll miss your touch
upon my brain.

You have a way
with words, you see.
They’ve taken root
in my memory.

I’ll think of you
while you’re not here,
and that will keep
my heart from fear.

So long, farewell,
I’ll see you again
when spring arrives
at winter’s end.

Postcard from the Moon

I climbed glued ladders to the moon
to get a better look at the stars.
I wish you were here beside me now,
but heaven remains so very far.

humid, unbearable
a second skin

I pine for
crisp autumn
to return
bringing rain
