Each Of Us

EACH OF US

Upon his decease
They found, clearing out his things, this envelope
Addressed “To whom it may concern”

Each of us is a PLP
A Public Leaning Post
A Poor Lonely Person

As a Public Leaning Post
I give each of you help and acceptance
And this is my Love

As a Poor Lonely Person
I ask each of you for help and acceptance
And this is my Humility

Amidst the dark and stormy seas of my pain and passion
I cling to the raft of my heart
And this is my Integrity

Among the dark and silent hills of my inner landscape
I shout “Hello” and listen to my own voice’s dying echoes
And this is my Humanity

There is a time for speech, a time for action
A time for silence and stillness
And this is my Wisdom

And as I strive to honour each moment as it is
And hold these qualities in mind
Perhaps I approach Creativity

Mo ‘n’ I

MO ‘n’ I

You’re seventy now
Who’d have thought it?
I recall our twenties

Here we are again
After all these years
Sharing an evening

Baring naked hearts
Across a gin or two
And a tear or two

Your conclusion
Too needy to share
Alone now and happy

My own conclusion
Can’t call myself happy
Contented feels more comfortable

My lengthy searching
Taught me call expectation
The mother of disappointment

We’ve given it all up
That bouncy folderol
Not born here to be loved

As you hear me out
Unchallenged or judged
As I you my dear one

Let’s do what’s next
Whether we like it or not
Each a poet with a spanner

PRATFALL

Take notes and move on
Whoever never messed up
Has missed half of life

All Colors

Speaks for itself and hits its target.

I’m not sure of the original source for this photo but I saw it on Facebook. We are not one race against another race. We are all one human race standing together against ignorance, hate and violence.

Good Mourning: Shadorma

GOOD MOURNING

Deep sadness
A moment later
Peace returns
Let it be
Everything falls into place
As if it was meant

Whatever

WHATEVER

Without our past …
Whatever its attributes
It led us to this moment
When thoughts of it
Arise in our mind
Let us honour it
Release the thought
And proceed

The Perils Of Social Isolation

The Perils Of Social Isolation.

REMEMBER. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

REMEMBER. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

REMEMBER. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

THE ISOLATION ILLUSION

Each WE a finger.
Without others no more WE!
Many fingers > one hand.

REMEMBER. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

REMEMBER. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

REMEMBER. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

 

Pusillanimity? … Or Wisdom?

PUSILLANIMITY? … OR WISDOM?

I don’t hoard any furtive hopes
Beneath my cosy feather pillow
Nor dreams, nor wistful wishes
For fear they will make it lumpy
And give me a pain in the neck

Happy Thanksgiving

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

We’re not all Americans though
On the other hand
On the other hand
Gratitude is always in season
Given we’re all fingers of one hand
On the other hand
On the other hand
It isn’t rooted in slavery and genocide either
On the other hand
On the other hand
We breathe in, we breathe out, we breathe on

The Daily Round: Shadorma

THE DAILY ROUND

Cliff hangers
New every morning
Is the love
Open eyes
Rein in those expectations
Moment by moment
