Time for Adjustment/imaginary gardens with real toads


Time For Adjustment

Sometimes a work of art
Is, “on the way”
We are inspired
Sometimes we know not, by what
It seems like a forest spirit

Hiding behind the trees
We get a glimpse
It disappears
There is an air of expectation

Like the first “feel” of fall
A change in the air
The mornings a little cooler
Leaves cover the ground

We do all that we can
All that we know how to do
It is time for adjustment
This can take five minutes
….to a lifetime

The Tin Man Seeks a New Heart/dVerse

The Tin Man Seeks a New Heart

Like the Fool
I take the first step
On the yellow brick road
In search of happiness

I am the Tin Man
My heart is broken
And lost from me
I seek another

My breaths are deep
In my empty chest
Can I love another
Without a heart

Which is better
To have given love freely
Or to have received love so
I study the questions as I rust

During my journey
I will be given many hearts
I have an idea about the heart I seek
I will not recognize the heart given to me
