Natures impressions of Heaven

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...

Self maintenance

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...

When forgiveness becomes a forgotten word

Your deceit

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...

Coach trip tiff

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

Nightly submergences

The waking flicker of your eyes

unsurprisingly tear-filled

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...

She Virgin to the He Virgin

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

MF blips on my mental health radar

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

Worlds apart

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...

Praising the lost medics

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...

ALIEN

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...
