Stuck In A No Parking Zone

Never been
On Easy
Street
Eke existence
Week to
Week

Leaning
Up against this
Wall
Wishing to again
Stand
Tall

Spirit broken
Resolve
Weak
Nourished solely
By
Defeat

Bedraggled, dirty
Down on
Luck
Needs eclipse a
Few spare
Bucks

Eyes diverted
From my
Gaze
Locked up
In this purple
Haze

Rejected disciple of
The
Whole
Relegated
To Black
Hole

The secrets lie there
Within
Reach
Perhaps today I’ll
Find my
Feet

 

Thanks go out to buddy71 who graciously agreed to allow me to
write a piece in response to this image he shot in San Francisco.

Peas In A Pod

Life is about
Creating shared history
With other people

Weaving a thread
Of common experience
Year after year

Until a blanket
Of mutual comfort

Wraps you
In a friendship
So close

Either person
Can at any time

Pick right up
Where last you left off
Without missing a beat

 

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Friend

In A Nutshell #39

Respect for
You
Respect for
Me

For all things
Living
Land to
Sea

Integrity
To
Do what’s
Right

Through
Life’s travails
Day and
Night

A
Healthy dose
Of
Responsibility

Tempered
By
A bit of
Levity

Compassion
And kindness
Light the
Way

If in
Our hearts
Forever
Stay

A basic
Tonic
Fits the
Bill

Ameliorating
Many of
Our
Ills
