Optimalism

My glass half full, I seek the rest,
for a life that’s full is surely best.
With the melding of two filling the void,
fluidity mingling’s much enjoyed.
~
Partners equal greater than each,
love overflows, heaven’s in reach.
The pouring of emotion quenches our needs.
And with a splash the follow leads.

Today’s the Day

Assuming today’s to be the last,
yesterdays are only the past.
Tomorrow’s come to fast.
~
Accepting every day’s the same,
nights pass, the day’s to blame.
Tomorrows come as yesterday came.
~
Acknowledging all’s new,
yet lacking yesterday’s clue
Tomorrow’s risen oft black and blue.
~
Anticipating each day’s the first,
yesterday’s filled quenching thirsts.
Tomorrows pass endlessly submersed.
~
Assuring each day’s bright,
yesterday’s end with good night.
Tomorrow simply see the light.

Longings

Suspended in the depths of gloom and despair,
there death is longed and life’s feared.
Where darkness consumes all’s lost,
with one breath the line crossed.
~
But that’s not today and that’s good.
The sun’s shining as it should.
The air chilled but warming’s near.
Spring’s now longed, none’s to fear.

Spring’s Returning

Thanks to all my many a friend.
My heart and mind’s on the mend.
The road behind bumpy and long,
twists and turns, some wrong.
~
Paths ahead are better viewed;
time’s taught life’s skewed.
All that’s known is there’s usually doubt.
But the ups and downs average out.
~
Like suns and moons we all rise and set.
And with changing seasons we freeze or sweat.
Grounding’s found in what’s always there,
the love of friends with time we share.

Seconds

Awaiting the sunrise,
starlight fills sleepy eyes,
coffee’s brewing brighter skies.
~
I feel today’s a happy day.
Clearing is the persistent gray.
And spring’s finally on its way.
~
Summer’s next, heart’s to thaw.
The beats of two inspire with awe.
Sunset’s as one an unimagined draw.
~
With a change of hue fall we’ll thirst,
a future’s quenched well-rehearsed.
But I think I need my second cup first.
