funky sunlight

hard words and hard work
you try and retry
compete and complete
always my hero
indeed by my side
truly my furthest and nearest warmth
you light me

– by mary ann blinkhorn

Note:  In this piece, I’m referring to the old meaning of funky – something that’s cool or admirable.

chance is a timeless change

if you should have me pinpoint it exactly
you were right to trust an honest eye
the eye with much light

salt air moistening brand new poem
self-portrait cheerful and grateful

moved
further back into my psyche
jumping out of the box
crazy paint chips loudly applaud
a crisp, must-see dream

the irony, debatable
upward punchy poets must move on
sky advanced to
a crack of sunlight behind curtains

state-of-the-art

state-of-the-art
state of the artist
state of the art
state of the artist
……………….
knock out a wall
go out in the sunlight
stroll along in the moonlight
there are no wall-climbing solutions
………………………………
think, breathe, speak, create, laugh
gasp for air and rejoice in it
sing your song in giant measures
tap your fingers on ordinary walls
those that form positive structure and don’t crumble
……………………………………………..
and as for those bitter parentheticals
lose them

jingles in the sunlight

horn fly

jingles in sunlight

poised on a cow’s bell

zzzzzzzzzz

tick-tock-tick-tock

ding-a-ling-a-ling-a-ling

snort

“Wha?”

tweet tweet, tweet tweet, chirp

vaarroom . . .

distant horn sounds

vaarroom . . .

tweet tweet

zzzzz zzzzz zzzzz

“A fly?”

swat, swat, slap . . . .

long yawn and sigh

eyes closing

tick-tock-tick-tock-tick-tock-tick-tock

zzzzzzzzzz

in a crazy mood

eating gingersnaps

indigo blue light below

ding-dong

snort

“Wha?”

rat-a-tat . . . rat-a-tat

bang-bang-bang-bang-bang

“Yeh, yeh, yeh, I’m coming!  Grrrrrrr!”

tramp tramp tramp tramp

sound of door opening . . .

“Are you coming to work today?”

“Oh my stars!  Yes.  I’m sorry!  I’ll be there in fifteen minutes.”
