Raindrops

Raindrops

 

Like tears

Rain hits my umbrella

Bouncing bursting

Droplets scattering

Spreading my pain

Shimmering images

Relections of you

 

Love like rain

Showers me

With tears.

MR BOJANGLES

 

Like Mr Bo...

my heart jangles 

when your smile

misses your eyes.

The face of a clown

soft shoe shuffling

through my soul.

White hands clasped.

The generous frill

framing your mask,

flutters like a wing

across the circus tent

of my broken heart.

Funny shoes walk strong,

confidently skirting around

landmines of feeling

actions speak louder especially when they hurt!

I hear but no words are offered because I can’t reply.

I see, I hear so please, throw your words my way

so I can at least aim in silence.

BOHEMIA (2)

 

It’s not about pain

although each graphic tale

was born of needles...

 

It’s not about regrets

although in retrospect,

there is always blame...

 

It’s not even about relationships

although painted stories

pay homage to my past.

 

It’s actually about celebration:

love - my constant companion

nature - inspiring motivation.

 

Frances...
