Picture of the Day
December 12, 2021


my goal this solstice
season is to shake free
of the shackles of time

i won't watch the clock
or mark my calendar

don't need to know what day
it is, just follow the light

i want to melt into this
holiday feeling, think
about loved ones while
crafting simple greetings

& make an art of lingering

cats, 'shrooms, & puns
are dominant themes

in this annual orgy of
symbol & mythology

proverbs & aphorisms
made up on the fly to
  flesh out any story

as a kid i counted down
the hours to christmas

now it's the opposite,
unfolding every minute to
--snip snip-- make it stick
