Ignorance is bliss

So I guess that they've imprisoned us into this predetermined preposition 

When the truth is there so blatantly but we can't help but not to listen 

Because ignorance is bliss so we'll stay blissfully unaware 

As to the GMO's in all our food and the geo engineering in the air 

I suppose we'll go organic and refuse the water from the tap 

What about the metals likened to a subtle che...

Forcing passers by

Curious for peep stand,

Swelling a throng

By every square

Or a roadside

Using his right leg

A nimble right hand

With the other holding

The artefact items hard

A hand-less man

Makes attractive tables

and stools

Hammering nails

And cutting woods

The way the task demand,

A task ,many normal people

Imagine,  to handle hard.


Those who appreciate

Ring Around the Roses

Take a great gander into the fields!
The fishes of the wilted flowers,
Red and dilapidated,
Your memory faded into each miserable sliver of oil against the midnight shaken sky.

Parading colours paint an image of you in mine,
Forget the safe places you had went,
For you may stay with me beneath a shallow moon tonight.

Wrapping your arms in mine until yesterday’s shadow gone,
Gravel shat...

Once

I don't know my way,
I've always walked blind,
dazed by the light,
bound to the dark,
heart tattered and torn,
mind vacant and worn.

The soul had a song once
but I lost it in the fog.

Alone now, 
I wander
forever forlorn,
the bird long flown,
my hope echoing blue
shatters on the sun.

love.

have you ever experienced
a love 
so strong 
you question your beliefs?

I'm an atheist.
I don't believe in a god
or an afterlife 
but
this love 
makes me wonder 
if over the course of time
our souls 
have been colliding 
and bonding 
and that's why
everything 
is so natural 
between us

I'm not talking about something romantic
but something innocent
for he has touched my hea...

Life at the Plateau

The Plateau

The view from here is calm and true

The grassy steppes stretch out of sight

From plainness slowly dullness grew

From winning I have lost my fight

Life once sharper, numbs to bland

And feet sink deeper into sand.

 

The uphill struggle left me weak

Fingers bloodied, grip was lost

Each ridge ahead still seemed the peak

Life was stripped, I paid the cos...

A Life in Colour

A Life in Colour

The challenge as I rise from bed

Is turning greys to green and red.

The drabness of the everyday

Takes a rainbow, turns it grey.

The colours sharp are lit by sun.

Red, orange, yellow, new begun.

Green, blue, violet quickly fade

Primary, pastel, into shade.

A squirrel, seal, a worm, a whale

Don’t worry that they live so pale.

The tortoise carries we...

C word

Now there's a new C word in town 

10 months in, the word CURED blasts free

In the same chair, same room by the same careful man 

Where we heard that other C word everyone fears

This one is C for celebration 

Not C for Christ no, can't believe it

A new day to celebrate through the onward years

A day as special as a birth

The C pebble dropped and happiness ripples spread and ...

Grave Thoughts from Above Ground

Wrote this after a visit to Southern Cemetery... see what you think.

Grave Thoughts from Above Ground

 

They lie so quiet in the ground

While leaves and nuts fall all around.

The slanting sun, the shadows fall

The squirrels scamper, magpies call.

 

The shortest stories ever told,

Their lives in stone stand out in bold.

A middle name they won’t confess

Or all three ...

Walking into Autumn

The Lindens leaf now yellows curling at its edge,

in damp lanes tunneled dark with foreboding bracken hedge.

 

The paths through which the summer crept are drained of colours glory,

memories now, mere secrets kept, and wistful fireside story.

 

Two hands held at journeys start have fallen to their sides,

as summer which had filled their hearts no longe...

The Meaning of the Stars

It became the moon above the ashes,

I winded sight of the streams that gushed through the glaciers,

And I wander about their blanket of flowers.

 

Did the sky become bleak for a reason?

 

To wander about the broken path within the rotting forest of the mind,

To feel sadness down and witness the flames rise from the oceans,

To sit beneath the stars for the comfort of the dis...

Second best

I'm tired of being second best 

I'm tired of being the one the world rejects

The husband wanted more so he went with the bridesmaid 

& even back in primary I never got picked for the school play

 

Second best is a journey of progression 

Always so close to the prize but then comes life's hard lessons 

It seems no matter how much you want it and no matter how hard you try

Otherwise I must pay the price!

Penetrating thoughts that won’t go away,

Got guilt, depression and so much obsession.

Beyond

I find that I must live in a world

Where, between that desperate dusk and a new dawn,

And between many a dawn and its dusk,

The only reality lies in love.

 

To be in love in that first dawn

And in the dusk, was to feel the sun

Warm our very passion every minute of every hour,

Reality lay only in the other.

And beyond that dreadful dusk, nothing

I have been waiting for help all these years

A little delusion that someone will rescue me

Someone will throw me a rope

To drag me out of the hole I have been living in

 

Searching for the light in the dark

Asking for help left and right

In the roughest moments

Hope, I need you

 

There is always a war going on in my head

Angels and demons clashing inside of me

Graduation

If you are reading this poem
That means you finally did it
You graduated from college 
And eager to start your journey into the world
But there are some things you must remember.

Don’t ever give up on what’s in your heart
Don’t ever let go of hat it is you believe in
Don’t ever say the road is too tough
And that it’s better to quit.

Don’t ever think that you don’t matter 
Because you’re ...

Swaying of a Bird

Trepidatiously the wings of a bird may sway,

Breezing through the air with shallow willows,

Gushing in and out of the crevice created by my mind.

 

Oh but the wind does not sway this elegant being,

It may be pushed but seldom unbalanced,

I seek the feathers.

 

Though the sky’s mouth may gape above and scatter its light,

The bird will remain in a secular path,

After hearing the voice of despotism,

the cries of the hungry looking in the trash for bread,

the bitter language of solitude,

I look in the blue sky for serenity;

I create a landscape and try to dream

 

I seek peace among the white fingers of the aurora

 

After not finding the line of understanding,

the root of the soul,

the wind of justice,

the submerged freedom,

Time

Time heals

tends to peel away the pain

calms your brain

stops you from going insane

takes the rain and turns it into sunshine.

 

If you give it time your world will grow

beautiful flowers

of joy.

Yesterday, the sun shone black upon my soul

Depth's depth deep beneath my heart.

Lumined ne'er by hope

Thoughts sank weighted low

 

Today, dawn'd, in heaven's mantle rais'd,

Glims golden future in my mind.

Light lightened all by future faith

Heart, mind and soul exalting up

free to go 
to go everywhere
to run away

I admire
you make it tame
my heart is not as wild as it was

Sunday

A cacophony of sound beats around 
inside my brain, deafening drops.

Sunday misery breaking the silence 
of yesterdays. Rainy Mondays, 
no hope for tomorrows.

We come and go. We come and go
when the floodgates of pain are open. 

Forgiveness closes doors 
left ajar in anger. 
Time moves forward, 
changes are subtle, 
inevitable. 

Hope does damage to the living dead.

Times Five

The moon comes at me 
through the trees, 
golden gleaming 
picking apart my seams. 


The sound it screams 
and the colour drowns me 
in my dreams, 
echoes low 
in twos and fours, 


infinity comes 
through open doors 
shaded in cloud, 
dim then alive 
so bright the shine. 


A diamond flickers 
five times.

Reflection of Hope

Expectations of our lives are many and strained, those caulis moments of shared indifference are timed weeds in the garden of human experience, shallow of meaning, breathless in compassion, seedless in deed.

Choices heeded in battle, in a common walk, a stroll through the neighborhood, peering from ones stoop as if the world was at curbside and nothing else waited beyond t...

My heart does scream 
at the nothing in my hands. 
My hope evaporates slow,   
cold my soul floats,
fades absent to grey. 

Can't keep on 
coming back this way,
howling at the moon 
night and day 
disarray eating away 
my brain, inept 
abandons all my dreams. 

The nothing consumes, 
drizzle soaks right through. 
The rain gets inside 
my bones they ache,

IS IT POSSIBLE OR JUST A DREAM

entry picture

I would love to experince

a love that is:

real

lasts thru all up's and down's

is gentle but firm when needed

A love that is:

friendship

and forgiveness when respect has been breached

that cares how words effect the other

A love...that does not try to own

but to be with

one that can be taken to the grave.

UP OFF THE GROUND

Dedicated to learning the rules so

he can defend others

He rides his bike on the snowy road

white breath streaming from his nostrils

So much to learn such a high cost

thoughts of comfort at the end

brought warmth to his body

Promised an easy road once

completing his journey

He hits black ice and skids almost falling

he relaxes and goes with the flow

We Were Wallpapers

we were not the flavors 

of a beautiful painting,

stranded in a cyclical design

that we drew ourselves,

 

unable to cling to the walls for a lifetime.

Brittle banks of ice
Against my taunting toe,
Cracking and seething
To be so uproariously

Of the setting sun
Through a smog that

Jets of black trees
Shoot dark into the sky,
Mimicking the wind
In their jostled, whipped

to have our constellations vibrant and incandescent
