Infinity

Traveling forwards and backwards
sideways on good days
through thoughts and dreams
The page is my time machine
spilled words map my journey
to anywhen, anywhere
devising anything
Fueled by imagination
reading
writing
worlds beyond known
and gently back home
What a ride
what a high

Blank News

Nothing in the news today
nothing that I would say
important enough for my
attention span to pay
I don’t want to hear
or I already know
opinions aren’t the same
as facts that failed to show
So go along your way
and think about the sway
blown all out of proportion
when in the news today

Exit Strategy

This poem
these words
are just an excuse
to play and amuse
myself for awhile
It’s a ruse
I’m tired
and headspun
Need to unwind
retreat to my lair
as quiet time
rolls in there
Think slower thoughts
just to see
what ought to be
if my merry muse she
will visit with me
whispering
flavorful tidbits
of more meaningful
wits

Balanced Return

no news is good news by e--m--i
no news is good news by e–m–i

Balanced Return

The best news
is no news
a quiet and peaceful trip
one day to the next
without much hype
or bias
Filtered awareness
daily focus
balance in return
I live and learn
without the media’s
input
A need to know basis
finds me evasive
yet still finds me
no need for me
to seek it

Just breathe…

Snow Blinded

Snow Blinded

Snow blind
in the rear view mirror
shards of a broken past
reversed in the glass
to look light and bright
from the outside
None of that fluffy white stuff here
I’m on the run from the spear
aimed at my heart
ripped apart
by the follow through
A new start
looming in the shadows
of what should have been
your long deserved happy ending
Our time together
but fairy tale dreams
Fates and destinies
are not what they seem
because any magic
including true love
always comes with a price
Double-blinded
and minded
by time…
