We need room.

We need space to stretch.

We need time to consider.

Flashes of inspiration are well and good,

but reflection needs room for rumination.

If you’re going to go out in public

with your hair a disaster,

and tell me it’s okay, because you’re wearing a hat,

could you please wear a fedora or a bowler?

Something with a little panache?

A Homburg or a Panama, perhaps?

Anything but a ball cap?  Because you don’t play ball,

and I don’t believe in capping potential.

The lake has captured the sky

reflecting clouds on blue silk,

shore lines doubled,

snow dusted trees, like brushes,

paint mist

suspended half way between reality

in a magic mirror of spring.
