Message from beyond or coincidence

Visitations -
those moments
when loved ones
who have passed
make their presence known

A balloon landing in a tree says
"I Miss You Mom"

A timer goes crazy
spinning and beeping
in the middle
of a family dinner

Sleepless Nights

Sloth or creation?

Image of a city at night

Why oh why
when sleep is elusive
does my mind refuse
to be creative

It's like an illness
a stubborn child's game
one where the winner
is the most useless

The house is filled
with hums and snores
The world outside
dark and silent

But here in my head
the game's afoot
Succumb to sloth
or fight the good fight
