´┐╝Deceptive Scenarios


Scrapbook impressions,
serious expressions,
a world of rationed grins,
subjects who appear quite grim.

Flat and gray photos lay,
formal poses holding sway,
likely no one mentioned cheese,
just stare at the camera, please.

Now, within our cellphone nooks,
only keeping cheery looks,
easy to delete each trace
of a disconcerted face.

Will future generations think
that they’ve found the missing link
to a blissful, toothsome folk,
all unmindful and unwoke?

On the Way to Palm Springs

He drove while I directed

my phone to remember

the contrast of winter summits

against the flourish of mild-weather

fields, lavishly green as Irish

scenes portrayed in technicolor,

or waiting room magazines.

 

I kept shooting as we passed

signs of spring, which wet winters

sometimes bring to meadows

and hills that summer fire

fries, but now in this season,

sunny-side yellow profusely

blooms California-wild poppies.

 

Before the Sonora Desert,

and busy city oasis,

he impulsively pulled over

nearby a quaint, woolly scene,

for photographs, however,

the flock boldly baahed at us

and made me feel quite sheepish.
