Shrugging off Winters coat
and Spring will soon be holding hands with Summer
Leaves having fully detailed their presences
on once undressed trees
and I take in the air of happiness
brushing fields and lanes so closely
that it has almost become a garment
I am privileged to wear
It is a warmly appreciated repetition
of unwrapping Earths gifts
and so many other...

From the strange things I encounter
prone to Goliath-like falls
I must recoil
retreat from them all
and gain common sense
born in honest hearts and minds
permanently constructed with materials of clarity
not with ill-fitting words
incapable of landing in the right places
of my thoughts
but those clearer than spring water
rippling with gentle inspirat...

has wolfs teeth, stained
with the prey blood red
of the trust I afforded you
which is now a grievance
you have chewed me up and spat me out
too many times.
My loves death is almost complete
but I remain determined not to be denied
at least one small victory
determined to blunt the last bite of your lying words
and after doing so
look back b...

I'd no sooner asked sleepy you to pass me one of my sweets
than you having thrust your hand into my bag
extended the packet towards me with a slight frown
as if to say ' I'm not your bloody servant! '
or was there some other underlying reason
that caused your the look of facial discomfort I wonder
simmering on the back burner of your mind?
so before I accepted them...

The waking flicker of your eyes
since you have risen from the sad dream charged
darkened haunts of unfathomable depths
where the remains of sunken loves
abide beneath that subconscious surface
you see and hoard their faces again
they are the burden of your hearts lost chances
still waiting as ever
to hold you in their wavering embrace...

Tenderly place yourself within me
calm and help satisfy our soul's unrest
let hesitations melt away
allow love to be our guest
In a secret concave of this summers meadow
bedded are we on deep, sweet floral scented grass
let us be at one with passionate pleasure
as the cares of the day uncared for pass
Worry not about the world's problems near or far encircling

There, is the grim reminding Mill tower
a dull giant, seemingly top-heavy with overcast grey clouds
and there are the troublesome youths at its feet
they have nothing but intentions to disturb in their minds
window smashing, obscene graffiti spraying, urinating anywhere
they have stolen the peace that was
combining their refusals to respect anything from the hard old days

I GET SO BORED WITH THE EVERYDAY THINGS IN LIFE
TO ME, THEY ARE MOSTLY EMPTY OF SPIRITUALITY
SO, I WAIT UNTIL MY NEXT VISIT TO THAT OTHER WORLD
IT SHELTERS THE COMFORTS I AM SEEKING
I LOVE THE WAY IT MOCKS AND DIMINISHES REALITY!
AND THE WAY MY MIND HAS LEARNED TO CONNECT
WITH ITS BRIGHT ALBEIT SURREAL GIFTS
I HUG THEIR ALTERNATIVES, THEIR STRENGTHS TO ME
TO OFFSET THE...

Their last thoughts must have been of caring for the infected
and of their families back at home
remembering as they most likely did each dying patients name
as death also claimed these warriors for its own
Dear God! must we endure more of their absences
these hero's falling one by one
the human barrier between us and covid-19
making sure the war will ever so bravely by them b...

IT ' LANDED ' IN CHINA?
SPAWNED ITS OWN KIND, INTENT TO TURN OUR WORLD BLACK!
TENTACLES UNLEASHED, IT WENT ON THE ATTACK!
HUMAN FACIAL ORIFICES SPREAD
ITS FATAL DROPLETS SOME DO UNKNOWINGLY INTAKE
INCURRING A TRAIL OF DEAD THOUSANDS LEFT IN ITS WAKE
A RAIL, A HANDLE, THE HAND IT LIVES ON
CREEPS INSIDE BODIES, THEN MUTATES
UNTIL THOSE MANY BODIES ARE TO MAKESHIFT M...
