#BadPoetryThursday – Against the Wind

Against the Wind

The winds of Time?
They forever blow.
And so…
We run against the Wind.


Not my normal #BadPoetryThursday, but perhaps just as bad.  This is a small bit of free verse that came to me the other day while I was out on a bike ride, and it, unlike most thoughts I have while out running or biking, stuck with me.

#BadPoetryThursday – Reach the Sky

The question remains,
Why even try?
For how can we reach,
That far away sky?

Feet planted in earth,
Head in the clouds,
All the world,
Bringing me down.

So what to do,
And how to live,
When we've got no more,
Cares to give?

Live the life.
Don't heed to the haters.
Every single day,
Make it greater.

Always remember the love you make,
Don't let them, your life away, take.

#BadPoetryThursday – Still We Run

Road weary,
And still we run.
Why do it?
We say it's fun.

Though it's hot,
And oft we complain.
We always come back,
Is that sane?

You tell me,
Cause I don't know.
Trails and roads,
Off we go.

Though one day I'll be on the shelf,
As for now, the miles won't run themselves.

#WeekendCoffeeShare – Distracted

coffee share picIf we were having coffee, I’d tell you how easy it is to get distracted.  I wouldn’t tell you until I offered you a nice cup of hot brew though.  That would just be rude.  We do have cream and sugar, if you’re into that sort of thing, and if coffee’s not for you, there is water and maybe some tea around.  I’m sure we can round up something.

There, now I can tell you that I’ve been a little distracted lately.  My last post was a #BadPoetryThursday ten days ago (June 16, 2017), and just after that, I took vacation.  Now you would think, or at least I would think, that a vacation would be a great time to get lots of writing done.  Maybe even build that short story queue that I’ve been thinking about for a while, but then life happens and here we are ten days later lamenting the fact that I’ve been gone.  I’ve missed you guys, by the way.

#BadPoetryThursday – Troubles Along the Way

Here I am,
Running the park.
There I go,
Funning 'til dairk.

So what?
Been a rough day.
The troubles?
Left along the way.

I can't do it.
Just can't explain.
The release happens,
Inside my brain.

It's not bad,
You really should try.
Trust me,
You probably won't die.

#BadPoetryThursday

Too Early Morning 

Cold morning,

I’m warning,

Ya, I had a long night.

Oh, I’ll be alright.


Pretty soon,

It’ll be noon.

Out the bed,

I’ll roll my head.


Start the day,

A late way.

Brew for me,

All the coffee.


Until the night again I greet,

Carried there with tired feet.

#BadPoetryThursday – The Storm

Peering out the window,
It’ll be here soon.
Building in the distance,
Rollin’ in, ’round noon.

There’s a bit of lightening,
Followed by the rain.
Spattering all it’s coolness,
across my window pane.

Just as it came,
Away it blows.
Another summer day,
It comes, then it goes.

All the little thunders,
We’ll take them, frame by frame.
Maybe they’ll save us,
From the big, bad hurricane.
