Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

a little night music

15 August 2013

 

 

a little night music

 

 

after dusk,

evening peepers

and Killdeer

serenade,

a droning

calmness, a persistent cry,

forgotten in sleep.

for a moment

15 August 2013

for a moment

 

quiet mood

soft instrumentals

lights subdued

honeyed tea

my thoughts dance to the music

forgetting all else.

fibulous, simply fibulous

Fibulous, simply fibulous

 

 

do

does

it was

not because

do did or did not

does doing not did, ’cause do was

or was not did because do does or does not it done?

maybe just a slice

15 August 2013

maybe just a slice

 

I don’t want to be

on an island in the sea

all alone, just lil ol me

with a cheery palm tree

and a pristine sandy beach

where storms can never reach

but sea birds happily screech

where only Nature has permission to preach

I know it sounds like Paradise

but I’m unwilling to pay the price

too much perfection isn’t nice

but then again, maybe just a slice.

I hate it when it does that

15 August 2013

i hate it when it does that

 

I

sit

staring

at a wall,

which does not move, or

speak, which sort of makes me wonder:

"What the hell am I doing staring off into space?"

 

I have an endless list of things I should be doing,

busy, busy, busy you know,

"Stop wasting time," I

tell myself.

The wall

just

smiles.
