big plans

Early Morning Rise

I stir

Still waking

I get up and shuffle around

Like an old car, I need to

Warm up

or else

I’ll stall


Peak out

Old windows

Get a taste for the day

Make a plan, what to do

Sipping coffee

And reading

Morning news


Finally alert

Cobwebs cleared

And ready to start the day

All this world is a stage

And I

Have plans

To shine

Dreams Of Big Plans

Pour a drink and have a seat

We’ll talk for hours

Filling the time with the nothingness, that which we so love

The big plans

Ultimate getaways

All the twists and turns

Enough to make the head spin, make it sick

Concentrate now

Seeing things from a new point of view

All scrunched up, balled together

Revealing secrets, and then the truths

Living with a new sense of purpose

Dreaming in color, and never making the same mistakes again

Pipe dreams, the old-fashioned kind

The one that make you and I dream better

Of better places, of better thoughts

Better get going

Train’s leaving

And it ain’t going to wait for us
