ONE SHINING MOMENT
That glow hanging over my head
is not some aura
indicating one thing or another
that only the gifted may perceive.
It’s the proverbial light bulb,
as if all this were some cartoon,
hanging there turned on
and shining in honor
of this one bright idea
that sparked out of nowhere
but may take us somewhere.
Such are the wonders of electricity
and a brain connected
All inspiring momentary hope and joy.
WATCH YOUR STEP
Sudden big wisdom
smacks forehead like harsh wind
won’t let me leap
