The First Day

Contemplating consequences…


   The First Day

If you do not clear
Snow on the first day it falls
Ice comes. Footing sheer

Contemplating neglect…

Gone the Season

Contemplating change…

   Gone the Season

Now a softer sound
Leaves are gone. The season’s changed
Fresh snow on the ground

Or you might feel some afraid
Thru emotions breathe

Those That Are

Contemplating the right stuff…

   Those That Are

What is a coward?
When those that are flinch away
Good men step forward

Contemplating running toward…

Other’s View

Contemplating perspective…

   Other’s View

It’s off to HQ
Twenty two years in the field
It’s time to imbue

The DC mind set
And me with each other’s view
Hope I don’t forget

Contemplating change, but whose…?

Telling Yourself

Contemplating the wait…

Time ticks in slow mo
Telling yourself they’ll be safe

Onto the Street

Contemplating tension…

   Onto the Street

The orders come down
And it’s out onto the street
Mixed with smiles and frowns

Each handles the stress
For some a lark. For others
Each op is a test

Depending on style
The fears and tension handled
Underneath the smiles

   -gl-

Contemplating the danger…
