Scorching Hot

sunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

By midday the sun’s scorching might
Penetrates the hapless
Tiniest worth of life in sight
Sustaining nonetheless

A desire for the shaded
Those hydrated places
Where of a thirst you can be rid
Noon time treasured spaces

Under the shaded umbrella
Of the side walk seller
The ices are from that fella
Just right for the weather

Mini skirts and strapless dresses
And bared and sandaled legs
Test of sunny paradoxes
Present day traits which begs

Of whimsy and discerning ease
A daring compromise
Hot colorist browning the leaves
Till they fall in demise

To a comforting ready earth
Willing to nourish life
Under a discerning sun’s worth
Of torrid heated strife

Hot hot hot penetrating rays
Slice season and cycle
The shadow and fraction of days
Measured in mere degrees

Moving On



This is my time,

I’ve lived your time,

I’ve found a new rhyme;

Time to move,

Time to groove,

Time to search a new life,

Turn my back on this strife.

Searching and spinning,

Looking and waiting,

This is me, moving on,

Old life gone.

What’s on offer?

Something new?

Something for the few?

Time for a life review?

Think you know me?

Looking cool I see,

Happy are we?

Searching and spinning,

Looking and waiting,

This is me, moving on,

Old life gone.

This is me, living a new life,

Say goodbye to old life.

This is me, moving on.

Why not come with me?

This journey’s free.

You know you can,

I could be your man?

Searching and spinning,

Looking and waiting,

This is me, moving on,

Old life gone,

Old life gone,

I’m moving on.
