Links

Standard

missing links
you think
of time passing
that lull
between frames
of meetings
when events
of the past
frequent in moments
become non existent
again beginning
something again
that never thought
you would do
for the cessation
of activity
to resume again

-Jennie Nawrocki

Busy

Standard

busy, i am always busy

i stand up from my bed
starting activities
what needs to be done
must complete
expectations growing
then the phone rings
can you?

busy, I am always busy

requests to be fulfilled
favors to be asked
errands to run
go here, get this
i am sorry, what do you need
it is over here

busy, I am always busy

where to find the time
projects to complete
dinners to schedule
that meeting ran over
how traffic affects the day
switching events
could you come

busy, I am always busy

what there’s a break
time to sit and relax
this is weird
there is something wrong
must check my computer
now I find more to complete

busy, I am always busy

Soccer

Standard

it starts
with a ball
spherical and
geometrically decorated
then the opponents
arrive equal
in numbers
each side prepared
practiced with
precision they
bring well
seasoned players
to have more time
when the ball
starts to
roll and fly
from person
to person
bouncing from
limbs chest and head
positions of the body
morph as each
pass is made
moving from one
side to the next
its tossed until
finally it reaches
the heavily
guarded net
once it does
receiving points
depending on
colors worn
the team
soon wins

Unexpected Visitor

Standard

it rests there
as an unexpected visitor
though you wonder
if they really are
this creature
with six legs
small though
seemingly insignificant
carrying defensive
mechanisms from hunters
we sat down
to enjoy the day
in the park
so grand
and are annoyed
at the sight
of this tiny insect
wondering who is
this unexpected visitor

-Jennie Nawrocki

Complete Idiot

Standard

there is one thing
that comes naturally
gullibility, so gullible
they want to believe
the need to fit in
to have friends
they pull in
with kindness
swindling though
at every turn
until your left
robbed of
any self-confidence
self-respect
you ever had
leaving yourself
without anything
and a
complete idiot

-Jennie Nawrocki

Closing In

Standard

closing in
always forcing
something unwanted
facing challenges
of appropriateness
within the context
of everyday situations
they never stop
pushing the envelope
of uncomfortable
manipulated situations
causing unease
of emotions
throwing abilities
off kilter
as they close in

-Jennie Nawrocki

Water

Standard

water held at bay
from leaving its mark
for everywhere
it passes
a puddle
of its essence
absorbs or melts
into that
it touches
there are times
destruction results
though with knowledge
use of common sense
helps us
