Old Lovers (A Four By Six)

OLD LOVERS

That curious rhythm
Stitched us to its branchings
Caught up in its weaving
Gladly surrendering

The Blessings Of Balance

THE BLESSINGS OF BALANCE

As above, so also so below
As within, so also so without

So blessed are we who toe the line
So blessed are we who won’t so do

So blessed are we who see it not at all
So blessed we simply for blessing’s sake

Cowardice

COWARDICE

When fear fouls the air
Truth pleads absence without leave
Ingenuity
One’s sole remaining refuge
Survival of the fittest

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

Indiscrimination

INDISCRIMINATION

Acceptance and rejection
Dancing together
Intimately
To bring forth
This moment of completion

Just as Yin and Yang
Dance together
Intimately
To bring forth
The Supreme Ultimate

Coupling And Decoupling

COUPLING AND DECOUPLING

Power she had in mind, in body too
He also had his power, duly exerted
And weaknesses (carefully disguised)

They once so hip, but now replaced
Following their gradual disrobement
As together all’s well that ends well

Memoirs

MEMOIRS

A story or two
They’d tell out
These folded fingers
If gifted a fresh blush of
Lips, palate, tongue

A blessing this perhaps
Or rather more a curse
Or better still the both
A confession, an absolution
Each sat astride its mirror

Hubris swallowed, spat out
These crablike fingers
Clutching at straws
While nearby a camel
Patiently awaits a breaking

Oh, what a story
They would spill
Then two then three
Then four than five
These mottled fingers

Reassurance

REASSURANCE

No coincidence
Morning precedes the unknown
Just so with mourning

Making A Difference

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

If you must differentiate
Try to do so horizontally
Rather than vertically

Morning

MORNING

Full consciousness
(Or thereabouts)
The day is mine
But not quite yet
