Life in Blog Posts

 A   L   O   H   A !
We measure our lives
in blog posts
of the present 
and the past;

Recollections of that 
Long ago
Black & white groove
Daddy - O.

So bright and
Towers rising
Hypocrisies falling; 
Strong men look tired
Democracy's calling.

Maybe India or
Can get it right
As Churchill was:

"The worst form of 
Government except
for all the others."

So chin up, mothers
Your children may rise
if we should only be
so wise
to leave them simple
Air to breathe -
Don't leave.
Just go
In the other room
For a while
Till it's time to smile.

Though it's always time
For smiles
With you
And Me
Whatever else passes
Or comes to be.

Not a bad campsite
To linger a long long while;
Soaking in the present's
Juices -
Not drying out
But open sluices.

Flow river flow
Flow to the sea.
Flow river flow
O river of me
Purling past rocks
Held stagnant in locks.

Now I push boulders around.

Deep strong currents 
Meaningful circus

Glittering treats!

On our way
To the 


Thanks for Journeying
Together, Friends!
                Warmly, cloudia
