The Journey to the West

Though we journey to the West We pray to the East More or less that's the way Each day begins and ends It’s a tale everyone ...

An Endless Winter

It’s almost April 1st and
There’s snow sprouting
In the garden again
Right along the same
Default lines where
The newly planted bulbs
Were expecting to grow

And what if James Baldwin
Was wrong and Captain Scott
Was right and it’s not the fire
Next time but an icy demise
That awaits us?

It seems so much the purer
As Nature’s ironic response
To our feeble attempt
At mastering the globe 
How April's shaping up
To be the coolest month
And this may yet be
The way the world ends
Not with a bang
But an endless winter
