A Sunday Dream

did you hear the stars sing last night?


neither did I

did you see the sun cry at dawn?


neither did I

did you hear the bells ring this morning?


neither did I

did you feel the earth sigh today?


neither did I

there is you, I, and why

why cannot they see the sky?

why do they always lie?

why do they not cry?

Time Watches Over Us

The words of this poem were inspired by comments that I left on Colleen’s and Donna’s post’s recently [ https://bikecolleenbrown.wordpress.com/ and https://www.djranch.org/ ], and the Featured Image Above, is one of Derrick Knight’s fabulous photos [ https://derrickjknight.com/ ] …

Time Watches Over Us

ours is not to reason why

for we are merely a fly

in the bigger sky

just passing by


we do not stop learning

because every day

teaches us something new


we cannot cease loving

because every day

our universe

creates something new

for us to love


the wheels of time

do not stop turning

and grandfather clocks

do not stop chiming

My poem today has been inspired by the three photos here on my article … The photos were all taken by Derrick Knight, who kindly allowed me to reproduce them here for my poem “Connected” … You may visit Derrick’s fabulous site by clicking on this link >> https://derrickjknight.com/2021/11/19/traffic-control-duties/


up there

under draconian dark clouds

I see a blue moon rising

gracefully shrouding the horizon


back here

on terra firma

woodland Autumn leaves are

colourfully crowning her mounds

where nature’s

unruffled fauna are found

gratefully grazing upon her

wounded ground
