nothing to say

all week long
I keep going
thinking of things
to write

but when I finally
sit down here,
the blank screen
becomes my plight

my mind is
so blank
the will is
not there

all I seem to
do is just
sit here
and stare

nothing comes
to mind
nothing flies
to fingertip

I just sit here
and stare
at this cursing
little blip

in cases like this
where there is
no point and this
is all you get

I can at
least say that
I have now
finished it

art appreciation

walking through
the art museum
not sure just
what I'd find

wanting to see
the work and
recognizing the way
some are signed

and wondering if
to the art and the
appreciation of it
I would be blind

I was able to
find some I enjoy
and others I was
simply resigned

to think that
it was considered
art and should be
in a place sublimed

all in all I am glad
I went and found things
to behold that held my
attention and remind

me that beauty is in
the eye of the beholder
and all that is art is
what is esteemed in the mind

don't know
what to write

not sure
just what's right

hate to
think of the plight

seems to be
just out of sight

hope that
worries take flight

six and ten

six and ten
I wouldn't do
it again

just living through
my own kid's
is enough to do

every day is hard
a struggle, a battle
of will and words

we will live
through this stage
I'd give

quite a bit
to not have to
struggle with it

but I know that
this too will pass
then we'll be at

a whole new
stage and wonder
just who

is this man
and know that
then we can

take a break
quick of course
for sister's sake

she's right behind
bundling up her tricks
biding her time
