Constancy and Betrayal

entry picture

I was enjoying sitting in the garden, pondering the beauty and the timelessness of nature, compared to the fickleness and unreliability we see in our leaders and found myself writing a villanelle. First draft below – may yet be edited but I wanted to share it now.

Constancy

Reminders of a life, a dream now torn
Scabia, flags and tulips, forget me nots
Behind the privet hedge a rolling lawn

Inside the Mask of Blackness

The real beauty lies

In blackness as

Flowers bloom at night.

The Look Of You In Love

if beauty is the keystone of women

from Cleopatra to Helen of Troy

you beat them into a cocked hat

the way yours generates such joy

 

its just a miracle of modern science

how every feature fits hand in glove

like rainbows and stars combined

in that ineffable look of you in love

 

you were always out in the front rank

from those early days of teenage bloom

but wh...

The Flame Within

She has a beauty that shines from within 

A light that never grows dim

 

Her candle goes not out by night

And the radiance inside her, ever bright

 

When the wind blows,

Her flame - it holds

 

She thrives, she sparks

She glows, she grows.

Reflections of Love

Hope cannot save what’s forgotten with age

As the moonlight clandestinely shines.

Pieces of souls, washed up on the shores 

Laughing gleefully at the passing of time

 

Abandoned dreams sink beneath the sand

On which fateful footsteps once tread

Years rage on, crashing silently on rocks

Where despair and weakness once led.

 

Reflections of love rise up from the deep

Pretty

I want to be pretty.

I don’t know what that means

I don’t know if it equates to the amount of free
Drinks I can flirt my way into, how many compliments
I get on my new dress as it swishes in the soft breeze.

I don’t know how many men need to want to touch me,
How many people need to be jealous of me, how many eyes 
Need to be on me.

I don’t know if it refers to the delicate purity ...

Rain

entry picture

Darkly damson silky petals flop

hanging gently in mid air.

They cluster together splashing colour vividly amongst the greenery.

A spray of white blossom hangs over the dusky velvety leaves

and their light accents glow.

In the background water makes its way downhill,

flowing gently between the mossy stones

and the feathery ferns waving in the breeze.

 

Bird song completes...

Narcissus In The Age Of Plastic

Narcissus In The Age Of Plastic

 

Beauty is skin deep

Layers of paint and plastic

Daubed with unsteady hands

 

Glance in the mirror

see the full bee-sting lips pout

and fake eye lashes

 

the tattooed eyebrows

filler in the crows-feet cracks

tell-tale nip and tuck

 

Nemesis smiles and

Avenges fading Echoes

Of a youth gone wild

 

When you are old...

Inverleith Park at Sunset

entry picture

The trees gather at the water's edge,

studying their reflections,

entranced.

Admiring their own grandeur,

the fine lines of their winter coats

revealed in the pond at their feet,

they murmur approval as they quiver their branches.

I walk amongst them

and worship at their beauty.

The clouds are reflected in the water

and glow as if echoing the opinion of the trees.

h e r

this world is a universe

for she is a world 

in herself

at every turn beautiful;

a billion flowers 

in any garden of gloom

would bloom to her smile;

her existence is life

her instance pride

with sadness shied away

the swooned heart

travels miles in a beat; 

every sweet smell 

reminds me of her

the earthy perfume

rain sends forth

the flavored whiff

Illumination

occult curriculum, whispers of the ancients, leave for letting out secrets
oil lamp kindling catching flames; shining begotten light from passerbys
in between classes, shifting penrose stairs lead into underlying framework on occasion
halls lined with rooks adjacent and curators searching for a select
rites of secret passageways proclaimed, karma to the dark is just a means to an end

Fever of silence

They all turn into madness.

Fear, the poison, injected too often.

A vaccination to prevent you from optimism,

from being an individual,

from the hope you kept deep inside.

You are infected with gloomy thoughts and panic feelings,

a fever of silence.

Only your own mind can set you free,

let you heal and open your eyes for beauty, kindness

and the hidden truth.

Canyon Raven

We come as passing visitors on the rimrock of this vast abyss,
awed by ancient desert rocks with ever-changing hues.
We marvel at these stones laid down in tepid seas
before the dawn bird flew,
grandeur timeless, yet so transient.

A raven races up from the canyon with joyful croak,
like a goblin fresh on vacation from his work in Hell.
He arcs above, then plunges deep into the chasm

Is There, In Truth, No Beauty

 

I am the dry path

Sat between

The first rain drops

 

I am the dandelion

Dancing in a field

Missed by the scythe

 

I am the spark

That jumps

From flint to straw

 

I am the breaking wave

Crashing up against

Deserted beaches

 

I am the words

Caught in the throat

Of dirty liars

 

I am the light

Crawlin...

Tumhe Dekh Ke Aaj Meri Ankh Muskurayee (Hindi)

Tere daaman par girey they chheentey muktalif rang ke

Chehrey par thi khili muskurahat aik alag dang se…

Tum se aa rahi thi sada kuchh suhani kuchh ruhani;

Rango me bheegey they lag rahe kuchh malang se…

Iss roop me tumhe dekh kar koi purani yaad aayi;

Tumhe dekh ke aaj meri aankh fir muskurayee!

Goddess

My face may not have symmetry

My skin may have spots

My belly may roll and wobble

My thighs may touch... a lot

 

Petals do not have symmetry

Mountains may have spots

The ocean may roll and wobble

The clouds they touch... a lot

 

I see the beauty of nature

Everytime I look at me 

I was handcrafted by goddesses

As is everything I see

Reason to Stay

When sun comes against all odds

And the colours of life just pop

Or when the rain falls

It falls and falls

And you wet your lips

With piping hot tea

With warm biscuit

Savour the crumbs

Cosy and safe

In the arms of a jumper

The padding of the sofa,

Like a huge hug

Or when your face aches,

Your stomach vibrates

Because you are fighting to breathe

Through ...

Numb

 

I woke up today feeling a bit numb

I woke up today feeling like everything will be fine

I woke up today and decided that I was done

I woke up today and cried

Then I looked in the mirror, I said, " Girl you look fine!"

Then another voice said, " Don't you dare give up!"

So I put on a happy face,

And I headed out to find that girl I once was....

Happy. Beautiful. Strong

A poem about my lovely husband, Rick.

It's all I can do
To sit up and gaze upon your beauty
As you lay there
Unaware
Your chest rising
Then falling
Once rugged hair now
glistening and twinkling
As the moonlight catches
And I sigh
You're in so deep now
The streaks of silken hair rise and fall
With every breath
I turn next to your face
Lined with the beauty of age
And wisdom
And stress
And I quietly observe
The flare o...
