The Fly

The Fly

 

The Fly

Little Fly
Thy summer’s play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush’d away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing;
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath;
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die.

The Train

by David Orr 

Not that anyone will care,
But as I was sitting there
On the 8:07
To New Haven,
I was struck by lightning.
The strangest thing
Wasn’t the flash of my hair
Catching on fire,
But the way people pretended
Nothing had happened.
For me, it was real enough.
But it seemed as if
The others saw this as nothing
But a way of happening,
A way to get from one place
To another place,
But not a place itself.
So, ignored, I burned to death.
Later, someone sat in my seat
And my ashes ruined his suit.

Fleabane

These sweet flowers (fleabane, I think) seem like weeds, they thrive so effortlessly, springing  up unexpectedly out of piles of rocks and cracks in people’s sidewalks . I was quite taken with this little gang.  They were soaked  from the rain but still wore their cheerful gaze on what was a very gray afternoon.

I am behind on my visits, but I’ll catch up soon! Thank you for your patience, and a big thank you, too, to all those who have stopped in recently for a visit here.  I am so grateful for your time and feedback.
