You Can Take it With You

The summer sun has disappeared behind
The mountains, but has forgotten something
Important. It packed up its color, light,
Photosynthesizing powers, except
One thing (granted, it seems to possess quite
An over-abundance these days). It left
Without taking a large measure of heat.
We need some, of course, but seriously?
Sun! Feel free to take a few more degrees
Along with you when you go tomorrow.

Little bee
Buzzing as he flies
From flower
To flower
Is totally unaware,
I'm sharing his world.

The Words

I miss my old friends,
Seems we've been apart so long.
I pushed them aside.
Didn't mean to forget them,
Ignore them, or neglect them.

But one day I knew
Somehow I'd left them behind.
I'd never written
Spoken, or even e-mailed,
And they were no longer mine.

See, it's all my fault
I just let them slip away.
No good-byes or tears
Just a dark and silent space
With nothing to do or say.

I can only hope
They'll give me another chance
To put things in line,
Focus on important stuff,
And love how they make me feel.
