Escape Velocity _ new 2021 poem

Inspired poem while reading @michiokaku's The God Equation. Saturday & Sunday I voraciously read up to page 122. It's a great read at a good time. It's not only physics but also a form of sociological insight. @Morning_Joe @MSNBC @nytimes @NewYorker @latimes @WIRED @physorg_com

March 2019 (the last of Parker Bean the best Lhasa Apso ever)

This time of year
Beginning March
Snow reflecting a muted sun
On wintertime's hard ground
Earth frozen and spinning
Tilting for spring to start
This time of year has a sound
A morning song chirping along
Everything alive is stirring
Insides churning and yearning
Here comes flowers bursting through
As the cabin door lets in early sunlight
It smells like melting snow and pine
Decayed leaves and nor'easter winds
Coffee shrugging off the veil of night

Here I Stand _ new poem January 2021

Again I'm waiting for spring so I can see

Pink & white blossoms on apple trees

Standing in the pouring rain

Down over my back feeling no pain

It's not God who put fear in you

I fought something to help us thru

Can't you imagine what's in their head

Dreaming they're talking with the dead

When I'm beside you I don't want to say goodbye

That's not in the plan

So here I am - hello

An average man - I know

Here I stand
