Carpe Diem Special #196 Hamish Gunn’s 2nd “on the street corner”

solitude

unwelcome advance ironic

still alone

~

a child sings

notes of melancholy

will the door open

~

I watched life

acting out, shedding values

damn it was fun

~

too late frantic

realizations of passion

kids will still cry

~

lamppost chatter

a warm summer evening

cold hearts

~

I wish to breathe

if might love be found

I wish to breathe

Carpe Diem Special #196 Hamish Gunn’s 2nd “on the street corner”

Papa’s Plum Tree – Carpe Diem #906 Ume-no-hana (ume flower)

We spoke near this place

where papa’s memory did store

signs of winter’s last trace

~

in papa’s name cherish

beauty in the form of white blossoms

the ice floes do perish

~

while a sunlit peace

suggests our open arms will guide

our lives toward a release

~

summertime and leisure

quiet memory of a fonder time

underneath our plum tree near
