Lifetime passing

Almost a lifetime
Just passed me by
Living in loneliness
Sigh after sigh

Not knowing real happiness
Alone in my mind
Roads left untraveled
Me in a bind

Meetings were merely random
Moving closer all the time
Then one day astoundingly
I also heard a chime

Wrinkles disappearing
Smile is growing fast
Feelings finding mutual
Hoping love will last…

Was it in front of me all the time…

Waiting for existence
I fell back several times
Side way vision only
Never hearing chimes

Waking from this ugliness
Like putting glasses on
Seeing all I’ve missed before
A picture freshly drawn

Seen this face a thousand times
Never knowing what was real
Is this the way my life can be
Or memory’s will they steal

Sometimes our best is in front of us
Other-times we bend in shame
I’m looking so much closer now
For me there’s no one to blame

Daily Prompt: Out of Your Reach…..walking in darkness

Originally posted on timzauto.... in search of the blond haired kid:


I think many are searching … the truth has escaped our way of life…

if I see it
will it be real
is it a picture
I need to conceal

floating in darkness
moving to sound
thoughts being concocted
something I’ve found

success is fictitious
our egos pretended
most of the time
our past is invented

truth being simulated
gets deeper with time
longer we live
the harder we climb

The man in the window …


It has happened again….

On several occasions growing up we as children heard noises that kinda couldn’t be explained . Being children with wide imaginations nothing was really done about it. My parents always said it was just housing noises from the house being a hundred plus years old. 

My brothers and sister all had moved as i have been gone for many years. The only time i remember spending here there were several people and nothing really happened . I have recently moved back here on a permanent basis and things seem different . I can always feel a presence in the house , it’s really weird . Items have been moved when no one has been in the room , and last summer a year ago I heard a voice in the garage . I pulled my phone out quickly and snapped this picture .

Saturday November 30

Day filled with remembering
My silence lingers still
Reminiscing all around me
I cannot get my fill

Listening is uncharted waters
My shallowness getting thin
Progress in my own thinking
Today’s a sure win

Family is inclusive
Escaping me in past
Feelings of being stable
In hopes that they will last




Daily Prompt: Keeping up with the Jones’

In recent years our own economy has changed our lives significantly. Decent housing is wanted by many, the american dream in home ownership,some times trying to keep up with the Jones’  lets or own banking system take advantage of us…

waking with chills 
a sidewalk for a floor
wind blowing thru
hanging cardboard for a door

dreaming a new dream 
never getting done
homeless in the streets
only warmth is from the sun

blame is not the worry
fair treatment not the truth
hiding from the solution 
not caring for our youth

Covet ....not always a good thing, just my opinion.....

Thanks for your support....Please share , like and comment

sights and sounds of my past…

Originally posted on timzauto.... in search of the blond haired kid:


I remember when we were kids , we had so many other kids to run around with….The sounds and smells of winter wandered through our heads all year-long. The sound of snowmobiles were all around us , the smell of cold dry air , it stuck your nose shut. We all had Thanksgiving and Christmas on our minds as the days seemed to last forever. I remember playing outside until my feet went numb never wanting to come inside. The simplicity of our days never-ending with sliding and tunneling through piles of snow was at our height of excitement. Hoping for snow days away from school just so we could get more of our snowy frozen pleasures in. it was the greatest times of my life.

Today I was walking around outside taking in the pleasures of a newly fallen snow , it hit me ….wow there was no one…

Excitement has gone
The straggler they still hang on
Till Christmas we wait



Daily Prompt: Fear Factor

My greatest fear is being alone …in a crowd or not…

Air was fully frozen
Winter winds
Set the nights tone

Hallucinating noises
A shift in the shadows
In my mind that are shown

Generations all around me
My focus
It never leaves

Restraint in conscious attention
It’s loneliness
My mind perceives
