Dreams of Peace

 

 

“Too much of everything

 

is just enough”

 

A stitch of words that frame

 

my license plate.

 

 

 

A sister’s gift

 

so many years ago.

 

How did she know

 

that I would frame my life

 

around those eight

 

Grateful Dead words?

 

 

 

 too much love is just enough

 

 too much peace is just enough

 

 

 

Were the little girls with flowers

 

in their hair wrong

 

so long ago?

 

 

 

To dream the dreams

 

the world

 

now hungers for.

Wake Up!

Wake Up!

The sun sets in the west
slipping into waters blue
Putting rest the journey of the day
what is not and what is true.
Spoken words left to brew.

The sun rises in the east
light peeps slowly through
Greeted with song of birds
refreshing memories of callow speech.
Mindless chatter of vacant words

The rise and set of the sun
a simple lesson learned young
Laws of nature –quite profound.
Yet
Lessons learned rebound
always seem to confound.

Language used without thought
how many times must this occur?
Always, consequences follow
outcome not learned – again tough to swallow.
Head perhaps just …hollow.

Mistakes in nature result harsh peril
unable to compete in life’s drama
Likewise to exist in a coma
unaware of natures sweet carol.
Might be imperil.
WAKE UP!
