Waterfall: Shadorma

WATERFALL

We so like
To stop, close these eyes
Stay stock-still
Motionless
Lean into the sound until
Eyes are forgotten

Like Blood, Like Water

LIKE BLOOD, LIKE WATER

Love is like
Blood … is like water
It brings life
If it stops
Flowing then there’s stagnation
Putrefaction, death

Alien Dreamers All

ALIEN DREAMERS ALL

Even? … Odd?
Even odd balance
This and that
Here and there
Kaleidoscopic jigsaw
You know how It is

Questionable Surroundings

QUESTIONABLE SURROUNDINGS

I wonder
Or at least at times
Do I live
In some hell
That I myself have dreamed up?
Shall I ever know?

The Bull Amid The China: Shadorma

THE BULL AMID THE CHINA

That once touched
Shall never return
To being
As it was
Beware then of thoughtlessness
Take care what and how

Family Get-together

FAMILY GET-TOGETHER

On parade
Best bib and tucker
Here we are
We strangers
With the same familiar name
Little beyond that

Reckoning

RECKONING

The day comes
(If you are still here)
When you look
All around
And see all those favourite
Books, discs, videos

The ace ones
You’re not done with yet
Retained to
Revisit
Though if you started today
There wouldn’t be time

Dunnow’s Offspring

DUNNOW’S OFFSPRING

I manage
My uncertainty
Certainly
Though many
View it a terrifying
Spawn of the Devil

Find themselves
Fearful of drowning
In danger
And adrift
Understandably therefore
Cling to some lifebuoy

Season’s Greetings

SEASON’S GREETINGS

I bless you
For reminding us
Of others
In essence
However we may view them
Not other at all

Stage Four

STAGE FOUR

I love you
You’re forgetful now
With chemo
And all that
So I wrote it on paper
Hope you understand
