Hot summer day

It is amazing how wonderful
100 degree temperatures feel
after being stuck all day
in a 60 degree room.

By Laurie Esposito Harley

A simple poem, written twelve years ago, posted today, and dedicated to Walt. I know how you feel.

Spring Morning

At 6 A.M.

.          the world’s still pink

with sleepy sunshine rays.


The voices of birds

.          sing to me

in the growing light.


The air is cool

.          still full of winter.

The crisp taste’s in my lungs.


Out in the fields

.          the cows are eating

a breakfast of hay and dandelions.


The cows see me

.          and moo their hellos,

sending an arc of birds flapping.

In my dreams

In my dreams,
life is sunny.

In my sleep,
there is no pain.

But sleep cannot make it better.

Eventually, i’ll face the rain.

I awoke beneath
the flickering blue light.
It rose out of the east
Even before
the warmth of the sun
could be felt.
Even the rain clouds
could not prevent
its eerie glow.

Unfamiliar voices
discussed the weather
in a severely scripted way.
Their unnatural laughter
and forced jokes

scratched the surface
of my eardrums.
I recoiled beneath
my sleeping blankets,
hoping against hope
that the strangers would
stop their noise.

I had dreamt again
of the yellow-orange sun
caressing my cheeks,
and the songbirds
playing their music
for me to hear.
In my sleep,
I had walked
in the dew of a glen
and felt the cool
of an oak tree’s shade.

And now,
as sunlight is shut out
like the devil himself,
I must be content
with the blue eerie glow
from my TV set.

Yesterday was Spring

Yesterday was spring.

Today, the breeze is fall-like.

The rain is static

on my TV-window pane.

Water on water

is relaxing to my ears

and comforting to my mood

of depression and lethargy.

My computer was not delivered today,

so again I will be idle.

Another day of make-believe

at being hard at work

while my mind trips and plays

in faraway lands of darkened caves

where anger and gloom

and other blue emotions

thrive and bubble in the murk.

I am almost happy in my sadness.

And yet –

I wait to be rescued –

The Rain

The Rain


The rain comes down

without a sound

But still,

         I think I hear it.


It’s gloomy out.

The dark clouds roll.

I have

         a gloomy spirit.


The rain outside

it grows the grass,

it makes the flowers bloom.


Inside of me

the rain just rains

and brings feelings of doom.
