They,are the people dying
on dead streets.
Soon,they will be the people
Yet innocent,in every meaning of the word.
But they have become
Because,we didn't listen
because,we allowed ourselves
to be collectively,selectively

Deeply within,am I struck!
watching the shimmering flight,
of this gaudy projectile,iridescent diver,
speed fishing,flashing by O! so majestically!
No sooner,returned to perch
on the wispiest of branches,than in a trice,
having contemplated his next targetted plunge
is gone! spear shaping his miraculously plumed body,
he pierces the rivers undulating face
in a dart...

See how they beautifully congregate
embracing each other
in white silence
softest of mountains
in a floating by landscape
an ethereal endless armada
of everchanging shapes
drifting en masse
weightless wandering vessels
sailing on a dry azured ocean.

newborn,with our newborn companion,joy!
we thought a boy,who would never age
how he filled each days page for the soul, how he led the dance!
enhanced the early stage,with light and love
while above,dreams flew,waiting to be caught
no thought of reality had we,carrying on the naive act
blind to the fact,that the spectre of time,remained unimpressed
never did we guess of t...

subverting,plaguing the bedraggled
dregs of light
forcing the day,to submit
to the sombrely,masked prelude
of nights full fluent,meshing of shadows.
In these blackening hours
strange thoughts arise
surreal sensings,of something universally free out there
ageless spirit's at play,
perhaps the messenger's of dream's,

With your once heightened passion for speed
it was inevitable
that one day
you would be the man
who should have heeded
and I will be the woman
I expected I would be
having to listen
to your leather clad friends
trying half heartedly
to sing hymns
trying to console me
I wont waste my warnings

Something you were born in
that you can never leave
or pretend its not there at all.
An obligatory waiting
for a certain vehicle
that you will be made to board against your will.
I am not talking buses here
and I am not talking about any possibility
of a return journey.

They are required by nature
albeit in a dicing with death tumble
richochetting off jutting rocks
when Father calls up the precipitous cliff face
or preferably from high ledge to sea in one precarious plummet
predators do not allow a second chance!
Instinctively they peer into the unknown abyss.
Are they wishing they were made of something a lot heavier

an immortal invisibilty
abiding in everything everywhere
even within and immeasureably beyond
the pitiless realms of death.
and indiscriminately retrieving
its short lived loan
from the futile graspings
of all things mortal

Expectant opening of palms
lowered over the grate
as a little cheery smoky spiral ascends
to be scattered by icy winds.
From between kindle rafted logs
the ballet of flames begins.
Slowly the gaudy dancers
perform their combustible leapings and curlings
snaking around the dead wood
caressing it like witches fingers.
The crackling cacophony is under way

Look sunward comes the golden remedy untrimmed which pours
thenceforward onto thy sill there sits
like cold dawns little bird though he be narrow ledged implores
to be blessed by the first beaming exhibits
Warmed departing doth he with joy
take to winging forth anew
the bright sunrise his high part employs
to enhance the freshly opening blue

His are not words expressing truth.
Not one of them will give away the devious way
in which their meanings are twisted.
He is not the singer
of whose voice would please Heaven.
He is not the actor who has no problem
in declaring his real self.
Neither and least of all could he ever be
the homeless person struggling to define life.
He is the fat...

Now of mind
through time aligned
to respect and accept
the parallel of death
its dark irresistable breath
carrying our echoes into enigmatic spaces
unknown places where beliefs may end that once did infer
how foolishly we clung to myths and gods that never were.

Previously posted on 9th April 2016.Repeated with bonfire night in mind-

A cardboard boxes and binbags 'monster'
gathering cobwebs in the roof void above
mountainous obsessing possessions

a dusty railed regiment of shirts
each once considered a beaut

Roses to be
seething to explore and culminate
in pinnacles of scarlet profusion
eager to taste
the dewy dawn
of first day
slenderly sinously meandering
seeking the fullness
of honey toned light
needing the guidance
of loving green fingers
to conspire with the secrets of the sun

stepping the valley hillsides
flickering like fireflies
until surrendering to the superior congregation of darkness.
effigies of Godliness
whitely contrasting with the tenebrous gloom
bleating vocal anthologies of pitifulness.
An Owl unfolds and paley ascends
predatorily ghosting wind whispered fields
while obscured in the fretwork of ...

All this dancing! my heartbeat racing!
legs twirling arms raised hands grabbing fistfuls of air
a relese from rigidity
a self enforced temporary revisit to youthful flexibilty
moods swing to the better
should I beer-brimmed or more
stumble and fall
leave me-let me lie and be a foolish island
circumnavigate my clothed shores with amusement
at my contentment to r...

and no matter how I try
sleep is'nt going to be easily achieved.
I lie in bed
between insomnia and the entrance to a somewhere
hearing the after midnight mayhem
being played out
an enforced dictation of screams and shouts
of the big bad boys and girls
drink fuelled crazies
with their big bad anti-social roaring toys
tearing up the st...

with national pride
venturing into a vast empty region
sub zero kingdom of frozen sea
to valiantly stubbornly plant the first flag
to be sacrificed to the histories of great losses
forever remembered aftermaths of failure
a chilling memory never disappearing
unlike these heroes
over blank horizons.
Howling snow s...

One hums to himself

white dotted black slabs
face down among beer slops.

Oaring the boat along gently.
Sat in the stern
She tucks into a poetry book.
Off to my left,the huge iconic chalky face
with green hair,overlooks our insignificent presence.
Below their roof of these waters
swim many varieties of marine life
with many varieties of names
that many varieties of humans
have given them
and I am more than gratefu...

Oh! the explosive nineteen sixties!
those lovely Rizla faggies enhanced with pot
the demise of velvet collared Teddy boys
and how muchly acid hit the spot
when so many kaftan'd flocked to Frisco
or chilled out in Marakesh
maybe hitched a ride to Woodstock
when flowers in their hair were fresh.
Many Legends of those swinging scenes
carry on performing to this d...

not having had their day

refusing to be banished

into a never completely ransacked house
irritating irremoveable installations

Haiku; (5-7-5) Cat
Stealthily slinking feline bird killer
Miaowing milk lapping hissing dog hating mouser
Furniture scratching night time prowler

Risen giants in verdurous clothing
Sky reaching elevations occasionally wearing cloudy hats
Shale and boulder patched uplands

Haiku; (5-7-5) Beached.
Barnacle encrusted misguided spouting submariners
Dying drying out Moby mountains of blubber
Liquorice lips in downturned postion.

Elongated pathways of barged waters
Duck and Swan'd liquid roads intermittently locked
Excavated earth tons fluidly replaced

so harsh,so wild, doth the upper tempests blow
light,to thine eyes,falls dim
sunlight dismissed,dark full insists
in this tenebrous sea,all shadows here do swim.
Thunders terrible,rolling voice,lightnings fearsome flash!
clouds,rain swollen,unclasp their hold
though far below,is cursed this dire show
unrelenting ne'er less,high furies more loud unfold.

under attack once more
by the unforgiving baddies
no surprise there then.
the forgiving goodies
are starting to drag their feet
arriving later and later.

while my positivity dresses up
in white robes
and reinvents itself as God
bringing shedloads of redemption.

will melt the ice
around your heart
slowly setting it free to find its way
to a heaven I am making for our eventual togetherness
until then my loves goes with you and my patience will never rest
my patience knows no bounds,my patience never loses,the needs of my soul won't allow it to.

Sly pretentions hid themselves
in the words she gave to this,my heart
she thought captured
that it would believe
they were messengers of love.
Her intentions,glazed with skilful deception
and perceptions,that I had become her fool
deemed to be poorly schooled
in the art of defence against manipulation
How deviously,she had sighted my inner lonelinesses

wave broken paths

silvery tendrils unfolding

one time kid of a fuckall childhood

Brought up on too many thick ears,scroungings,left overs and corner shop shite

With the dust
of the days far flung brilliance
still in my eyes
I am at one

ripening to backdrop

those crystalline orchards
among whose branchings
has grown a glimmer
one that has always
it is a beacon of hope
it is a guiding light...

Ignorant thuggish dominator of his fearing neighbourhood

In my sleep
I see myself
crouching at the window
of some kind of library
a smoking rifle in my hands
people are running everywhere
somebody down there
in the back seat of a limo
appears to be dead
what looks like Mafia members and teamsters
are applauding me
suddenly John Kennedys ghost appears
laughing and whispering in my ear
