Dean Fraser on Talking to Myself (Wed, 21 Aug 2019 04:49 pm)

Remembering

Some truths are hard to conceive

Beyond what I’m able to believe

The joy remembered as tears we cried

How is it 35 years since Ian Curtis died?

 

 

A man who once lived in Macclesfield, this poem was written in May 2015

Eyes Open Wide

With purest open heart

Negativity now depart

In beauty walking

Inner voice talking

Cleansed, whole

Mind, body, soul

Harmonious living

Smiles easily giving

Complete inside

Eyes open wide

Still point that is sought

All actions, all thought

Transformation undergo

To understand, to know

Truly deeply fathom

Love in every atom…

The River and The Sea

A canoe launches into shallowest water

All but a stream

High in the mountains

Forward motion begins

Avoiding rocks

Patiently progress is made

Slowly yet surely

Widening and then

In an instant transformed

A cacophony of noise fills his ears

Rapids!

With long-won skill, he traverses

Shooting onwards

Summersaulting

Yet in control

Then calm returns

First...

If I Take My Leave

entry picture

If I take my leave of the green green wood

Home to Herne the Hunter and Robin Hood

Sunlight finding its way through the branches…magical

A living breathing ecosystem starting with the botanical

The symphony of nature provided by operatic birdsong

Natural balance perfecting, every creature does belong

 

If I take my leave of the green green wood

Would it cease to exist? I wo...

Labels

Which style of clothes we choose to wear

Are those designer labels on show there?

Or supermarket jeans with matching top

Did that bag come from an online shop?

Got to dress-up that look, make it “you”

Designer a must, branded training shoe

 

Myriad of gadgets await our pleasure

How exactly to enjoy our leisure?

Binned phone, new model pride of place

How is it better, ...

Art Of Being

To fathom all the depths

The art of being

Harmonious communication with every atom spiralling

The multi-dimensional way of truth

The river so to carry

Intuition intelligence

Emotional maturity

Existing beyond dimensions

Simultaneously exuding love

Living within love

Limitless…

Island of My Mind

I would look from my window yonder

Untamed nature

Wild

Waves crashing upon beach

Heart of winter

Gales pounding

Residing here

Pioneering buccaneer

Safe in my sanctuary

 

Seasons change

 

I would share this transient place

My island

Wild

Waves lap gently upon beach

Heart of summer

Warming breeze

Growing here

Deeply see and hear

Safe in my ...

Today in this 21st Century

Today I pull up the drawbridge

My domain

My castle

None may enter

 

Today I go to the mountain

My niche

My cave

None may find me

 

Today I commune with nature

My forest

My seashore

None may follow

 

Today I bid adieu for a while

My freedom

My retreat

None may know

ARE YOU READY?

Spend your life dreaming about trivia and that's what you end up with
Make your dreams big ones...big, bold and in glorious technicolour
Paint them across your imagination and go wild.
And if the dream is possible, however remotely, there is a good chance the way will be made available to achieve your dream.
It will happen...the choice is then yours...how much do you want it? and how brave do ...

Talking to Myself

As I observe, I feel I need to ask myself “Why is it that people talk without thinking first?”

I see it everywhere I venture, people creating their very own version of hell and I wonder “Why would they do that? Make their life so limited and one dimensional?”

 

Further pondering on the matter drew me to further observe “They ask for exactly what they don’t want, all the time, why would th...

Supermarket

Super marketing

Luxury range is twice as nice
Free wine with every ready meal
Buy one get one free, what a deal

EVE?

She bit into the green apple with perfect white teeth

Is her hair really that shade of red? I suspend disbelief

Smartly dressed she stands there all of the day

Kitchens, selling them to anyone, to earn her pay

She sees all life going on, standing, smiling next to her display

She must have heard it all, chatted up in every possible way

Managing to look like the kitchens she sells ...

FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS

I like bridges and piers, in a parallel World I’m a civil engineer
in this World I am mostly civil and mostly sincere

I like architecture, in a parallel World I designed Big Ben

In this World I just sketch buildings with my pen

I like trains, in a parallel World I drive them across the USA

In this World no leaves on the track is for all I pray

I like trees, in a parallel World I ha...

Rhododendrons And The Hudson River

entry picture

Unexpected botanical specimens appreciated as we wait

Rhododendrons growing wild, well untamed at any rate

We want to see it after dark, adding textures, night views

Navigated Hell’s Kitchen, towards our Liberty Cruise

Flowers near the ferry office, she takes photos up close

Standing back I admire, a poem in my head I compose

The tour starts, Liberty awaiting our pleasure

Our ...

Nature Freely Gives

Jack In The Green awakens from his slumber

Spring is upon us, nature in all her wonder

Gaze in awe of rebirth, renewal, fertility

Stood deep in the forest, deep within tranquillity

 

Robin Goodfellow his mischief to perform

Souring milk, trampling crop circles from fields of corn

Tripping those who into the green wood unwary tread

Laughing, yet another traveller away from p...

Amber

The street infused with an amber glow

Changing moods and colours into a twilight reality

Of half remembered days before

When night was dark and a panorama of stars stretched out across the sky

All the constellations existing as everyday entities

The Pole Star…re-assuring in its certainty to guide the way

Whole Oceans being crossed using only the night sky as a map

Compasses be...

Boots 2

entry picture

He slept with his boots on

Although true sleep is alien to him now

A cacophony of sound disturbs his slumber

Fear being his daily reality

He had volunteered, the Chorley Pals they called them

His friends were right there with him, wanting to do their bit

He had been in the hell to which they sent him for only two weeks

And yet he had already outlived all his Pals

A veteran ...

Every Day A Celebration

entry picture

Remember, Remember…the what of November?
Was sure there was something…try to remember
Dates in a diary reminders of significance
Sure there was something...just think perchance
Perchance to think…or was it sleep?
Or is perchancing to think altogether too deep?
Ahhh good old computer the answers I seek
To google or not? I’ll just have a peek
November is Vegan Month…hurray!
I’m writing this...
