Passing Ghosts


“…just someone i used to know

when we were young…

he wouldn’t remember me…”

~ or would he?

anyhow, we’re different people now

lots of water under the bridge

lots of highs and lows (tides too)

we treated each other bad

you know, young and care-less

too shallow were we

rushing from one date to the next

looking for Mr Right

then settling for Mr Wrong

played Happy Families for a while

dad taking snapshots ~ smile ~

then off hunting for his lost youth

in short skirts…

Forest Fires

Forest Fires

A single act of carelessness
Is all it takes to set in motion
Such catastrophic consequences,
Endangering many humans,
Plants, animals, homes and livelihoods.

At certain times of the year
Vegetation is tinder dry,
Highly flammable,
Combustible and susceptible
To outbreaks of fire.

It is criminal, unlawful,
Immoral and outrageous
To fail to take precautions
To safeguard against these
Dangerous conditions.

The smallest spark could be the cause
Of a gigantic conflagration,
Escalating rapidly into an inferno
Taking the lives of innocent people
Animals and plants.
