Out of Focus #poetry #blackfriday


bw-tulip

When creatures of the blue

breech waves in the sea

I am pre-occupied

too busy nothing do I see

the newest forest creature

fawn’s wide and open eye

beauty rarely matters

nature passes by

I do keep thorough ledgers

I listen to all the news

watching every action

know what celebrities will do

the colors of the rainbow

wasted, nearly spent

searching for more zeros

I will count each, every cent

walk while never looking

over iphone I’m mesmirized

never saw earth’s child

the beauty in her eyes

from the rise of misty dawn

to dusk’s golden glow

I’ll never bow down

kiss the fragrant rose

*

lost is purpose

man forges gold mountain

blind to beauty
