Reconciliation

RECONCILIATION

It is never too late
To say your peace
Unless of course
You leave it too late

Och Aye

OCH AYE

I thank you all, my dear Scots
For those years passed away back in Stirling
May your pipes remain forever a-skirling
Down here mid my scented forget-me-nots

Modern Love, Modern Death

MODERN LOVE, MODERN DEATH

Dead now Bowie of course
While we are not … Not yet
Just standing in the queue
While distracting ourselves

Dunnow’s Recompense

DUNNOW’S RECOMPENSE

To find strength and comfort in uncertainty
Is the reward for an earnest searching
Beyond the generally agreed upon
And thenceforth universally decreed

The Verdict

THE VERDICT

She returned from the doctor’s surgery.
There was a silence. Then another. Then.
“He says it’s terminal,” she said.
“Life is terminal,” he replied quietly.

Good To See You, Bud

GOOD TO SEE YOU, BUD

One thing leads to another
Links in an ongoing chain
A necklace to adorn our Mother
Here comes Summer again and again

To Whom It May Concern

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

We breathe in
We breathe out
Not always
Regardless

Adversity

ADVERSITY

This one’s for Audrey (and many another).

I hit the road
It hit me back
We paused a mo
Now here we go

Wayfaring

WAYFARING

Accumulate little
Give much
Speak little
Observe much

Points Of View

POINTS OF VIEW

To assert one should live without opinions
Is both clearly impossible and paradoxical
But to defend them or argue them to others
Is both quite pointless and often dangerous
