The last withered cherry bud

 promised to return and bloom.

I adore the tree.

And coax her.

I believe it will come and

bloom to a smiling cherry blossom

Whatever Happens, Happens

Today I thought about killing myself
I found myself not good enough
I don't think anyone would miss me
Don't get me wrong

I hate that funniest guy in the room is the saddest
Everyone I've ever met I've made them chuckle
I can't think of anything positive
My whole body is going numb

I've become the thing I hate
Fully died inside 
There isn't a anything there anymore
All I think about...

Twilight memories drift, flux, flicker
In this breeze of time.

Such pungent affirmations,
Whispered in the dark,

Tunguska Dawn

Tunguska Dawn

 

The day the false storm came

My brother Chekaren and I

Were asleep beside a campfire

The smell of burning wood drifted

Across our sleeping forms

When suddenly a thunderclap

Awoke us from deep sleep

And we saw the second sun

 

Blazing white heat tore our shirts

And made our skin hot to the touch

And all around we heard the sound

Of the secon...

PAVEMENT ARTIST

The lines below are a result of an incident just witnessed in the street outside my flat. 

 

I've just been leaning out of my bathroom window

Taking a breath of much needed air

When a young woman with a dog paused below

Looking on as her mutt did its business there.

 

I watched, somehow knowing she wasn't prepared

To clean up when the doggy deed was complete

Non-Profit

 

We are a non-profit

silently we take cash

in small bills

we also ask

the government for help

and they are dumb enough

to give it

we have buildings to maintain

and lots of staff

we have an advertising budget

and a stable of lawyers

we also have huge conventions

Tuesday's Prayer

Lord mold me into 
the loving person
you created me to be. 

Help me praise, 
instead of complain.

Smile, 
instead of frown.

Look up, 
instead of down.

Reach out to the lost,
so they can be found. 

Amen.

Long Haiku Or Short Sonnet?

 

Choose
as if there is no fate.
Choose long straight hair
like a long straight road
from here to there.
Choose the easy life
however hard it may be.
At the last minute as at the first
as if the duelling pistols are identical.
As a baby turtle rushes
into the sea or into a wall.
Choose.

Little Window Flowers

In a pot on the window sill

I have some small, pink blossoms

Tucked into their green foliage.

The scouring bees

Riding high on air currents

And feisty, little wings

Spot them clearly,

And smack into the glass

With a thump.

 

I feel bad every time it happens

But I don't move the pot.

They never drop down dead

Or stunned, that I can see.

Prayer and God Will Protect Me From Corona

 

Trump calls for churches to open – regardless.

 

“In America we need more prayer, not less”

 

Must go to my church coming Sunday

Mix close with the people and pray

To God who'll protect me and save me

And keep corona virus away

 

Attending my church is more important

More important than staying at home

Lock Down Bank Holiday Let Down

The bank holiday, just like any other it would seem

People lined up for burgers, queued for ice cream

Traffic jams and chaos, they raced to beauty spots

Roads filled with cars and bikes, so few parking slots

 

They parked on pavements, blocking walkers' way

Locals wished the tourists had not visited that day

Was it too much to hope, common sense would prevail

Coming alive with boiling water.

Those notes of silence in isolation in Spring
Carry further at night-time more than in the day
with the flowers blowing in the breeze

And the return of the birds once again
From their endless trawl down South
Are now closed like confessionals in churches

Pain

You lie awake in bed with your eyes swollen from the tears and the pain

Wondering why you deserve to hurt

You play back scenes in your head thinking , " Was it all fake!"

The smiles, the love, the times we laid together in bed, talking about children, and houses by the lake

You close your eyes and tears fall down your face and you cry to God , " Please, please make it all go away!"

Dreams are a simple way to make sense

of the past, often used as a mental grip

on the bafflement we feel

when choice engulfs us, not just hems us in.

 

Shall I become that which I know I am not?

Perhaps, an empty shell, I will be found out:

a shameful gambler like many,

Whilst others may be far away, 
You've no need to leave your room, 
For you can see and hear them, 
Through a device that we call Zoom.

Of which people should now know. 
It is a common meeting place 
Where everyone now seems to go.

You may have many in succession. 
You might just meet one person,
