Water Street

This poem follows from my earlier work "Wet", set in the city of Cairns, Far North Queensland. Having reached the place, the next challenge is to figure out how to survive in the prevailing weather conditions: 100 percent humidity and massive daily rainfall. Air conditioning helps, somewhat.

Summer was the waiting for the Wet:

On Water Street, old Queenslanders

April Rain

Welcome overcast sky

from incessant heat

 

Drizzle gently falling

on freshly wet street

 

Feel is overwhelming

for indolence to set

 

With drop in mercury

and in rain to get wet

 

Odd for time of year

coming event it tells

 

Rains not lot farther

quelling of arid spells

 

Sprung as a surprise

catching all unaware

 

Speeding all measure...

Trading Places

Time to sever all alliances

shades dark which depict

 

No purpose those serve

 and independence restrict

 

Had my share of amends

 beliefs now must uphold

 

 Fix impending glitches

skewed life thus remold

 

All of robbed past verve

it’s time now to beget

 

 Seek out fresher vistas

sans cause for any upset

 

In environs carved out

conductiv...

Deemed Rapture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some day in the future

dawn will break again

 

None be grudges nursed

 or space  for any disdain

 

Where vales be pristine

 living modest and plain

A Longing

At core of it all is yearning

to someone similar belong

 

Another there to relate to

and walk  distances along

 

Bond in sort of perpetuity

till  infinitum which extends

 

Joyous in times favorable

 supportive in nasty bends

 

Tolerant of most nuances

offering emotional bind

 

Forever whetting intellect

as stimulus for the mind

Interest Only

 

all square within the confines
of the cask conditioned discothèque
from without my fitful anti-sleep
came the wasps 
and creeping hands 
that spidered across the ceiling and floor
unsure of the etiquette for trembling
delirium
yet, for three pages, I was
in the clear, gone, beyond the provincial
boots of leaden grit, though by the fourth
the int...
