Evolution (Mine)

I used to be one of the crowd
watching every burst of color
as the magical clock struck twelve

I used to also stay up ‘late’ listening
to orchestrated POPs concerts and
watching televised fireworks colorfully burst

I used to gather with family
we would play penny poker waiting to
clink, drink from plastic flutes, and kiss

I used to watch that hour hand creep
I used to watch the minute hand wiggle
I used to watch the second hand tick, tick, tick

Then I evolved into one of those folks who
didn’t stay up late, glad to be home safe – let the clock
tock as I slept… zzz, wake into the New Year

one mans’ beginning
the New Year – starts with
each sun rise or set…

an easy escalade : a choka haibun 12.23

an easy escalade
(a choka – haibun using three prompts 12.23)

the engineer rode
a long life over the rails
sometimes traveled by
car, bus, or even airplane
used his two feet too –
favored the beloved train.
oft his own wife thought
she was second fiddle to
the iron maiden
that had stolen his heart so
early in his youth.
perhaps the old man wondered
if he would meet his wife who
just years before went
with an angel guide, straight up –
he had been so lost
without her strength; took his cane
and went for a stroll –
t’was only fitting to be
called up to the gate
by St. Peter; a stair
of rails ascending
up into the pearly clouds
gentle the slope there
on the old abandoned line –
peacefully found his way…home.
***
do you hear it… the
fading echo whispers still –
reuniting souls
