Poetry

by Dianne Dibb Forbis


Daydream

Do you ever long
for long ago,
settings collaged
from hearsay glow?
Those times when wishing
made no sound,
when there were meadows enough
to go around?

Surrender

We’ve been told not to procrastinate:
our senses will disintegrate;
our joints we will not lubricate
doing only what we like.
But as I sit and meditate,
my muscles won’t cooperate;
working conditions they clearly hate.
I think they’ve gone on strike!
