BLANK

My bum is sore

imagination no more

lacking

 

I try and try

but only can sigh

for no words fall on my paper

 

I sit and sit and twittle my thumbs

swaying my chair side to side

 

I use to be funny

and quick witted 

words rolling off my tongue

dripping onto my page

 

This evening my mind is a blank

not sure who to thank

for the empiness of my brai...

TO THE RIGHT OF THE HYPHEN

I fear that

I will vanish

without a trace

as they add

the final date

to the right

of the hyphen.

Home for the holidays

Homecoming over white hills, blue waters

Inhale cool fresh air, exhale slowly to remember the sensation

Warm embraces from family and friends

Wood stove heat warms me to core, comforting blanket

View of the ocean, littered with sea ice waiting to form

Fishing boats resting for long winter ahead

Visits with old friends, laughter over coffee and sweets

Reminiscing, old times and...

Forgive but don’t forget me

entry picture

I don’t want to be a bad memory,

so here I am, saying sorry,

for the things I’ve done that could possibly have hurt you;

with everything I say or done,

I hope you forgive me

before the sun sets and 

hope you’ll remember me

as a good memory when the sun rises.

Happy New Year

Now the end of December is here,

So I’ll toast you, my friends, with a beer,

Then I’ll scribble a rhyme,

While I have a good time,

And I’ll wish you a happy New Year.

sculptors

here we are now

our intentions finely shaped

two talking about nothing but love

both needing not of second thoughts

goodbyes disposed of forever 

knowing our exchanges of truth have been moulded perfectly

having nothing to do with mortality

having everything to do with immortality.

Garden of Awareness

Let me invite you to the wonders 

Of my Soul where you can rest 

In the garden of Awareness 

bringing fresh aroma to aliveness

I watching the day passing by 

Drinking the cup of Joy 

With two  spoons of happiness 

I got some alleys of Peace 

Where I like to spend some  time 

And then flowers of the bliss 

Mmmm they smell so beautiful 

On the middle of my garden

A New Vision

A New Vision

 

A new vision for a new time, a new episode, a new year

for the future is full of uncertainty mingled with hope

We face it with a sense of expectancy

hopeful yet daunting in an immense complexity

 

Energy, wisdom with a strong sense of purpose

are required to embrace the unknown

We approach a mist, a maze, an entanglement

The New Year

 

 

We are going out to eat early

go home before midnight to avoid the noise,

besides, since we are elderly

and this may be our last New Year; we rather spend it at home.

After a long fight, I got to wear my collarless shirt

no tie needed and my tennis shoes, grey slacks and

my old blazer.

What my wife will wear I have no idea since she has changed

Show them the love you feel.

borrowing the time you want now 

taking more space than allowed

there’s more to be had out in front

never enough minutes left

The oak tree

A misshapen old man

that barred our way to school.

We would sidle past, caps over our eyes,

the aged oak in Greenfield Avenue,

so wide the path went round it;

startling, lurid growths

broke away from its crevices,

crumbling at a touch.

 

Aware of beauty, we gathered

cobwebs, glistening with dew

and sunlight, netting them as gleaming fish

A dream of ageing rings through Boxing Day
and pulls a biro gizmo from my crown,
two cosmetic teeth are out, lower front,
and consternation frowns the mirror view,
they can’t be tweezered back in place, I’ve found
another molar’s gone, dislodged, won’t glue

To love is to suffer

His words twist into my heart, in bold letters they tear me apart, leaving my eyes bright and green, I can't hold back the tears, I'm not trying to fight, expressing my feelings is damaging, he takes it wrong and here comes the sting, I guess love isn't meant for me, no matter how sweet I can be.

both were holy to me

all they were live elsewhere

I don't why or the wherefore

all I can do

is to try killing the doubts

I created

is to try stamping out the reasons

for the fault-fires

I ignited.

Last year at this moment, I had resolution
To post as much poems as the monthly said days
It was going for broke, ambitious in a haze
Without fear I started for this execution

Some poems came quickly, some lingered in my head
Some news helped my content, the President is numb
Some were of fantasy, some were worth daily scrum
But all in all for fun, eight months covering spread

Darkness doesn’t pass it just becomes different fragments of light Maybe over minutes, hours or days it can seem bright. As I sit twisting my short hair around my finger wondering if 4 days unwashed is a concern If the clothes I’ve not cleaned, that I sit in, does it really matter?

Earth's sword

Earth is a curious place.  Sunrise evokes awe

in those who watch a day’s waking hour.  To survive

that day, or consecutive days, we’re totally

reliant upon our ingenuity and

the society we’ve built.  Were it not for our

technology, logistics and planning, many

of us would not be here.  Earth’s beauty hides this harsh,

double edged sword.  Something so beautiful can be

Fear comes in different forms.

Fear of love.
Fear of pain.
Fear of failure.

One day you overcome it like a true Olympian. Another day, it arrives on your doorstep ringing the bell unceasingly until it deafens your ears.

Fear of attraction.
Fear of lust.
Fear of judgment.

And you never want to hear it again. You hide. You run away. Beneath the sheets of a stifling world. Behind the curtains...

Maybe a serious gas leak or some other Xmas drama.

I felt the grain brush and twist between my fingers.

 

You pushed your back closer to my chest and sighed happiness

And I continued to memorize every detail of the moment
