Global Warming

Global warming is an explosive affair between Earth and the Cosmos.
Each year increases by one degree
leaving little hope for cool weather,
raising a need for long, sodden winters.

Each year keeps getting hotter,
we seek new swimming holes.
Our longing for a sodden winter swells,
wishing for water to help our rivers.

Old swimming holes are dry up,
water everywhere is dwindling.
We’re left wondering over the lack of rain,
Which would inevitably cool our summers.

As our supply of water decreases
food sources become scarce.
Faced with hell-hot summers,
there is little hope for rain.

Food is in short supply
people are anxious,
“We need more than hope for water!”
The temperature is rising.

Anxiety increases.
The love affair gets heated
temperatures are soaring,
There is little hope for cool weather.


On Shore

I crave deep grey
ocean waves
reflecting tempestuous motion.
Wind emoting passionate
disarray and commotion,
A lost soul sees anger
mistaking the crashing
disastrous actions.
Internal breaks in sanity
left reeling on shore
away from the craving
a captive seeking more.


Coffee simulates the synaptic response
you typically get
out of sleeping enough,
I tend to like
caffeine jolted fires
warming my bones from within
especially when my soul is cold
from the outside in.


Life is so sweet and simple
when wrapped in your arms,
late at night,
then into the morning,
as I delve into paradise.
Quiet and
always delicious,
I miss your surroundings
around me,
before you were aware of “us”.
