Late Night Musings.


Late night musings.-by-MFB III


Here It is

not yet one a.m.
I sit warm beside a fire
as the burning

wood it crackles
launching sparks

to be extinguished
in the winter

storm's wet kiss
and my T.V.

softly cackles
laughter from a sit-com,

decades old
but my attention's

drawn to paper

beneath my pen
with inkstains

charting my emotions.

I'm scribbling

poetry again
on the brink of

the next thousand years
I still must

chronicle my feelings
when most folks

now look for their answers
from a cell phone,

or their computers.

I field my questions,

 and then frame them
in a carefully

worded structure
somehow this brings

me satisfaction
cause when I'm finished,

I've found peace
Plus I am left

with a collection
of life's nostalgia to peruse
but now it's one a.m.

I'm off to bed
with hopes to

catch a snooze
that finds a dream

that dares a-muse
with most inspiring views.

Noble Spirit, thank you !

You help us remember who we are!

You are good.

To laughter and good cheer
