Genesis (19b)

GENESIS

Each moment
Realisation
Of a dream
Yet unborn
At least until this moment
As God breathes once more

Guides And Wise Ones (19a)

GUIDES AND WISE ONES

Ancient truths
Yet newly minted
Still needful
And therefore
Spirit sets sail once again
Fresh canvas, same wind

Whoever Has Ears (18b)

WHOEVER HAS EARS

Köln Concert
Over and over
With you then
Without you
Music you can rely on
Others … Not so much

Poo Bag (18a)

POO BAG

When (s)he fears
(S)he may’ve made a mess
(Too often
(S)he’s afraid)
Even if no one saw still
Likes to clear it up

Cryptic Search

goj913

Slithering old

private investigator

searches for

clues to use

on a double

shield family force.

His obsession

castigated by

police force.

He decrypts

evidence by

an emotional

mystery kit

misused

left and right,

from distraction

on warning signs

signaled by

dashboards.

Money gadgets

twists

polished knobs

by trustees

hand prints

on safe

seated in flight,

bound by

loyalty blood

seat belted

locked tight,

flock starling in

murmuration.

Clean house,

inside and out,

abandoned.

Palm leaves

falls

for gardener to

pruned out

to trash pile,

investigated.

Surveillance

on birch trees

empty nested birds

chirping pleas for

hatchlings mouths

captured and

wings clipped

to rusty cages

down South.

More dirt to dig

he was convinced

using a shovel

in a chemical landfill

as the

family maneuvers above soaring.

Realisation And Mindfulness (17b)

REALISATION AND MINDFULNESS

Returning
To the computer
In a flash
Realised
A moment of mindfulness
Left glasses upstairs

No Victims Here (17a)

NO VICTIMS HERE

Never mind
The finger-pointing
At others
Circumstance
Take responsibility
Take charge, take the wheel

As Jazz Is (16b)

AS JAZZ IS

Love you like
Miles, Coltrane, Jarrett
Who needs a
Safety net?
Life and death are one to me
With you beside me

Explorer (16a)

EXPLORER

Mystery
Childhood favourite
Whyspering
In my ear
Fairy stories beckoned me
Hinting at ingress

Looking here
Looking there of course
(OCD)
Each stone turned
Discovering vibrant life
Cloaking … Mystery

Divorce (15b)

DIVORCE

Eggs don’t bounce
No doubt about it
Broken shell
Yolk and white
Slowly evaporating
Seems that’s all we left
