From the movie, "Midnight in Paris." I love that movie!!

Confronting the Veil

One step up
Two steps forward
Press against the veil
Dividing realities

Separate the drapes
Hesitant to step
Expectations high
Adventure to be sure

Blink against the light
Escaping through the fold
Glowing like the sun
Burning against the brain.

Listen for a clue
Cacophony of sound
Overwhelming confusion
Babel revisited

Press to gain entry
Heat searing the face
Access denied
No humans allowed

Writer’s Block

The words are right there,
on the tip of my tongue.
But try as I might,
the words just won’t come.

I’m stuck in a rut,
a glitch with no cure.
No rhymes to be found,
a brain cramp for sure.

What can be said
for a writer with no words?
Like a chef without spices,
it’s just for the birds

I need a sharp slap
to the back of my head.
But try as I might,
my brain is like lead.

Words oh words,
you’ve left me in a bind.
I’m truly convinced,
I’m losing my mind.

The greedy bastards!!
Is Spring just around the corner?  I ate dinner last night on the outside patio of The Habit in a short sleeve shirt.  What happened to El Nino and our winter??
