I’ve Been Here In My Dreams For 44 Years | NaPoWriMo 18.11


It isn’t often you
get to see images
of childhood fantasy
played out in real time,
but when you do,
oh, man.

The future has been slow-
slower in coming than
I had been expecting.
But every now and then,
we catch up.
Oh, man.

Betting Man | NaPoWriMo 18.9

I would
bet on
some life
the chances
of something
more complex
raise more doubts
from one cell to
many, changing
ever harder
if I were to bet
on any much less
many eyes gazing
back at us from far
but the universe is longer

The trees knew the Moon before
our ancestors lived in them
they had long ago fallen in love
with its changing silver light
even though it didn’t nourish them
perhaps even because of it.
They whispered to us
when we came around
and we fell in love, too.

High as trees could reach
the moon was too far away.
But even that far back
we knew it was not too far
for us

We promised
when some day we went
we would bring it back
to them.
