mom taught us how to
pickle so that we will not waste –
self-preservation

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: reliance

standing at the edge

do not waste a single

do not waste a single
breath on knocking others
down –
let your heart be
clear, your
conscience
unpolluted

for conversations

a wasted day is

waste one less minute

we lean heavily

we lean heavily
on the future, and
the future leans
back
with a
familiarity
of an old adage
sow the wind,
reap the whirlwind
.
power up the
launcher, we will
need some throw
lines in place

near the end, they stopped

four a.m., and doubt

four a.m. and doubt
swings on the
hinge between
wavering
commitments:
to sleep,
to wake,
to waste not
another minute
on an imaginable
snow day

the things people send

the things people send
to one another out of love
or cruelty, it is hard
to say. there is a bit
of self-assurance
involved when it comes
to cruelty, but much
less so when it
comes to love –
another bouquet
of irises goes
to waste
