Day 358

January 11, 2011 Leave a comment

A double rainbow reference on Twitter gave me the idea for line 3.

What you want to see
It may seem obvious enough
when taken at face value,
but what does it really mean
upon further review?
When you look between the lines,
what intentions will you find
and just how many of them
exist only in your mind?

Day 357

January 10, 2011 Leave a comment

I moved my site to a new host and it took me a while to figure out their interface, which gave me the initial idea for this one.

A little lost
Yet another misstep
has taken me off track
and I’m not really sure
how to find my way back.
I’ve got to get my bearings,
figure out what’s going on
and with any luck I won’t find
that I’m simply too far gone.

Day 356

The beginning of this one was inspired by/borrowed from the song ‘Where do we go from here?‘ from the Buffy The Vampire Slayer episode ‘Once More With Feeling‘.

Just Wandering
Where do I go from here?
The answer isn’t clear,
but I’ve got to go
and I don’t know
how I will persevere.
I’ll just have to keep moving
and try to find my way.
Hopefully my destination
won’t be too far away.

Day 355

Line 3 popped into my head and eventually turned into this.

But I thought …
Another false assumption
has cut me down to size,
a simple misunderstanding
that I failed to recognize
and now I’m forced to reassess
everything I thought before
in light of all the options
that I don’t have anymore.

Day 354

This one was initially inspired by the fact that I’m rapidly approaching Day 365. I also managed to slip in a reference to my favorite author.

Where to?
I’ve done my best
to stand the test
of time and so it goes,
but where it leads
and what it breeds
nobody really knows.

Day 353

The initial inspiration for this one came from watching CES coverage on TWiT Live, but then it took a bit of a left turn.

What else have you got?
Continually consuming
more than I can afford
to cover up that fact that I’m
becoming numb and bored.
A jaded disposition
that I just can’t seem to shake,
I need to find the something
that will startle me awake.

Day 352

I wanted to use the word foundation and it led to this.

Tearing it all down
to the foundation.
beginning again
without hesitation.
The old ways just don’t seem
to work anymore
and the problem has gotten
too big to ignore.
