Doctor of Cheer -- Poetry 2011



Sunlight melted
any semblance
for scheduled thought…
It was frolic time.
Blue sky, warm air,
birds even sing spring;
fooled crocus pop up.

Mercury’s feet splay;
restless wandering
tremors rattle frailty…
luminous eyes close;
asleep closer to death.

Cumulus bandages
sweep in from salt sea
dimming doctor of cheer
brushing thick dullness
pulling warmth from earth

Clutching his scrawniness
murmur soothing sound
old ears twitch; purrs hiccup;
rocked into catnap dreams
of better times; tears drip
onto lackluster black fur…
