Month: April 2017

Sundays…… and so on

Some great songs

from 30 years ago

(thanks prime)

and my mind reels 

at the conversion

from youth

to ruin…

 …well,

drama aside, 

it feels that sudden. 

Yesterday I popped

that singular cassette

into my dumpy car 

(a car more loved 

than any “far-better” car

I have owned since) 

and watched the world

reveal itself  to me

while inviting me

to the glories of a youth

unfolding. 

Today…

well, 

my four-year-old seems intrigued

by the music

of yesterday. 

Old…

or older…

It sucks,

and the perspective gained

goes ignored.

Circadia

Spring has sprung 

and so the Earth has completed 

yet another orbit 

around her sun…

just like millions 

and millions 

of times before. 

She has seen the rise, 

flourasion  

and extinction 

of so many different 

life-forms….

Yet,

here we are,

ready,

to welcome her again 

with the arrogance 

of the one group 

who thinks,

“this time”

is special.
