Mourning Fog

Mourning Fog

The early mourning fog alights
across the yard on stoned gravesites
soothing to an earth lain scarred
holes for souls and yours en garde

For long your stolen strength I tried
to shadow safely, fears inside
’til staunchly I fell by your tomb
as though they’d ripped you from my womb

But this you gave in times of strife
a graceful face respecting life
faking of the Master’s ways
as rain melts down to faithless days

So rest now Mother your wounds are healed
your heart ensconced in golden shield
Your loving arms are missed in spade
yet forever linger in misty shade…

[RIP 2/16/13]

Trust the middle road code
Running from your sore core
Underneath your fear’s tears
This will set you free, flee!
However pains hell’s bells

Jolly Roger

A mild-mannered elderly man
meandered up mountain unplanned
He slipped by a still
and sampled the swill

We’ll let you know where he lands

Musing winds now blow
through leafless trees like water
cascading downstream
