You Don’t Know

You don’t know
what tomorrow brings
nothing
is ever
guaranteed

You don’t know
what is around the corner
behind the tree
standing in the darkness

You don’t know
what pain
lies behind
other’s smiles
what their eyes have seen

You don’t know
what a difference
a smile, a hand, a willing ear
can mean
to someone you don’t even know

You don’t know
the mark
you make
on today

silence sees snow start
dog looks back questioningly
is spring gone already

Who Knew

 

Who knew
Who knew that geese collect frost
In April darkness
Coldly at 20 degrees

Who knew
Who knew that the moon
Can draw eyes
call to souls

Who knew
Who knew that birdsong and thistle
In the rosy glow of dawn
could still frazzled mind

Who knew
Who knew that songs that haunt
Troubled souls
Caress silent mind
