i just need some sleep

i am too tired to write
too tired to think
my eyes are heavy
just sitting takes too much effort
i think about sleeping
but that would mean
i’d have to get up
and move myself
and i’m just too tired to do that
and i’m too tired to try to figure it out
i can hear my bed calling
the thought of it comforts my head
maybe if I close my eyes
i’ll dream myself to sleep

lazy moon

did you see the moon tonight
it was so full and bright
i watched it as i drove home
i followed it passed
the trees and the hills
through the park
and down the streets
it stayed there
hovering above my head
this big fat, lazy, happy moon
just dangling in the sky

siren

screaming through
the night
someone’s pain
someone’s nightmare
the city can be so harsh
this the reminder that
anything can happen
this song of pain and despair
suffering and loneliness
but then again
maybe this is a happy
siren
a new life perhaps
so there it is
singing into the city night

driving home

eyes on the white lines
flashing like dashes
passed my eyes
and the solid yellow that is to my left
i don’t see much of anything else
sept maybe the tail lights
that are all in front of me
i don’t see the trees
i don’t see the sky
i don’t see the wild flowers
that grow by the side of the road
i am lost in thought
of time well spent
time i will remember
and i am locked onto this vision
i follow the lines on either side of me
and i watch the tail lights
i smile as i turn my wheel
and i am just rolling along

epiphany

sometimes it just comes to you
an epiphany
a realization
it’s been there all along
staring you in the face
but now it’s
the realization that you accept
you are settled into
comfort
acceptance
an okay feeling
that it’s okay the way it is
it is what it is
and that is good

worry

I worry less and less
these days I’ve noticed
of course I can
remember less and less
of what I’m suppose to worry about
these days as well
I guess age has it’s perks

can you feel it

i sit here on this hot city night
there are so few of these kind of days
well at least ’round here anyway
there is a breeze pushing the warm air through
there is always that eerie feeling that something
is just not right on a night like tonight
earthquake weather
that’s what we call it in these here parts
the unpredictable the unusual
a warm breeze where there is usually cold
mmmm feels good
there’s something coming
i can feel it

minutes

the day begins and then the day ends
and in between time goes by to fast
there isn’t enough of it
and I wonder where it goes
the minutes are lost for ever
or just creep by
time seems to wander
time seems to fly
i just can’t get a hold of it
or wrap my head around it
in a second it’s gone
then it lingers
like some school yard bully
waiting to kick your ass
seconds seem like hours
and minutes just drip on past
i wait as i watch my self
go round and round
and then I turn a corner
close my eyes

and a new day has begun

san francisco summer

summer in the city
happens about 5 days a year
well I exaggerate of course
but what can I say
in this city
this city of fog
you have to embrace
the days that are warm
for there are far to few
there is an aroma
a subtle buzz
an undetected energy
it’s warm in this here city
this foggy city by the bay
to stand in my garden
as it drenches itself
in the sun and the heat
i covet this moment
this warmth
to be able to soak in it in the night
without sweater or jacket
seems such a foreign thing
but i open my arms
and take it all in
each little moment
for tomorrow the fog will return
as always does

puddle

i will melt into a puddle of tears
i will fall into the sea
i will fade into the moonless night
i will drift off on a light summer breeze
i will disappear into the sunset
that sinks below the horizon
that sits outside my window
i will fly away with all the birds
on their journey to warmer skies
i will tell myself that it’s all okay
even though i know it’s all i can do
to get through my day
i will imagine all the things i can
that pass through
this tiny tiny brain
i will take it all in stride
when i know that at any moment
i could lose it all
i will will myself now and then
when i will recognize the hope
i carry inside this body of mine
even though i know i will
eventually expire from all the willing
i will do between now and then
