A Dream Deferred

What happens to a dream deferred?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore—
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over—
like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode?

— Langston Hughes

“People don’t choose dreams. Dreams chose them. So the question I’m getting to is,
do you have the courage to grab the dream that picked you?
That befits you and grips you?”

— Prince Ea

A Desert Morning And Poetry In The Age Of Novel Coronavirus   Leave a comment

Giffords OfficeA Desert Morning In The Age Of Novel Coronavirus — Image by kenne

Midnight poems are bicycles
Taking us on safer journeys
Than jets
Quicker journeys
Than walking
But never as beautiful
A journey
As my back
Touching you under the quilt

Midnight poems
Sing a sweet song
Saying everything
Is all right

Everything
Is
Here for us
I reach out
To catch the laughter

The dog thinks
I need a kiss

Bicycles move
With the flow
Of the earth
Like a cloud
So quiet
In the October sky
Like licking ice cream
From a cone
Like knowing you
Will always
Be there

All day long I wait
For the sunset

The first star
The moon rise

I move
To a midnight
Poem
Called
You
Propping
Against
The dangers

Bicycles by Nikki Giovanni

“I tried to keep both arts alive, but the camera won.

I found that while the camera does not express the soul,

perhaps a photograph can!”

— Ansel Adams

Bug Springs 2012Bug Springs Trail B&W Photo by kenne

The lower part of this Bug Springs trail in Santa Catalina Mountains trail was
destroyed by a wildfire in the early 2000s. In the years since then, the ground cover
has returned now, providing a carpet at the feet of the few remaining burnt trees.

Twenty-year-old B&W photo
Our smiles tell the story

We were both in our 50s
Wiser now in our 70s

Living each day knowing not
What tomorrow may bring

Not living the stories of the past
Living each moment holding hands

Throughout all these rumbling years
Time has brought about changes

Still, our love for each other
And our smiles remains the same
