#WeekendCoffeeShare – A Good Week

cappuccino on tableIf we were having coffee, I’d say that it’s late and that I probably shouldn’t be drinking this as I raise cup to lip and take yet another sip.  You would know that this is not the first time that I’ve indulged at too late an hour though, and tell me that I’ll be fine.  And you’re probably right about that, by the way.

So, might I get you a cup of something?  Coffee, tea, water, or juice?  You may as well indulge with me, and follow me down the path of poor nighttime beverage decisions.  Don’t worry, I’ll lead the way.

2017 is absolutely flying by.  Weeks seem like days, days like minutes, and so on, and so on.  I can say though, that the past week was a fairly good one as I did some of the things that I’ve been missing out on lately.  Those things included writing a bit, strumming the ole guitar, running, and bike riding.

Rain on the Roof

Sheets of rain,
Across the roof.
Hoping that,
It's waterproof.

For being wet,
I don't mind.
But in the proper,
Place and time.

Not in bed,
Middle of night.
Drips of head,
Waking fright.

For all things,
A season.
For that though,
No reason.

#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 – Tampa

IMG_20160408_194710083If we were having coffee, we’d be in the Starbucks, so instead of me offering you what I have, you could just pick from the cornucopia available to us tonight.  Go ahead and pick something.  Don’t worry, I’ll pick up the tab.  As luck would have it, I put a fresh $20 on the Starbucks card just the other day.

Settled in?  Okay then, let’s talk a bit.

#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.

#BadPoetryThursday – Not Enough

When it's not enough,
but it is you're best.
Pushing beyond hard,
Just needing a rest.

It's what we're taught,
Go forth and succeed.
Trying for things,
We don't really need.

But what if we're wrong,
While singing along?
And don't know the words,
To life's great song.

Scary the changes,
The speed of life.
We do our level best,
Avoiding the worst of strife.

Changes unavoidable, scary at times,
Embrace the pain and forge a new line.
