treasure

cunning little snippets rolling fairly off the tongue
embedded in a rhythm with a rhyme of some or none
imbued with inner vision where the sum of two is one
unless the one becomes the two deriving half the fun

nonsensical or laden with an inconvenient truth
is it just a bit of wordplay or shouted theses from the roof
or 95 nailed to the door a schism it might seem
resolving into healing words, a King who had a dream
the two again become the one though centuries divide
alike much more than different when stripped of foolish pride

but I digress
or do I

the joy of doing should eclipse
the joy of being done
if the journey is just tiresome
the ratio of fun
descends to infinitesimal
and that's abysmal for everyone
save divers and mathematicians

now I do digress
but I do
and it's fun

texture

without the fits
and jerks
and starts
smooth sailing
on a flat calm sea

without the waves
and hurricanes
imagine

what fun
would that be

Man
I see you
and your ferocious quest
every damn day
and I am humbled
humiliated even
that i would try to empathize
on the grounds of introvert discomfort
you are the fearless leader
no doubt

organizational

it seems the boxes get all the love

descriptive typeface
borders
status

but it's the lines that deliver

process
relationship
life

quietly without fanfare

boxes are stuffed with shirts
lines flow with cool
I know I want to go

baker's dozen

twelve word poems  
imaginary pizza party  
compelling setting  
with comfy chairs  
and friends

dirty dozen

patience

ancient ocean memories
expressed as desert blooms
broken dreams will find ways through
adversities
and resume

the desert
it is
that makes
the dessert
so sweet
