Opposites

OPPOSITES

The opposite of love
Is not hatred but fear
Hatred is simply
An armour for fear

Darkness is not
The opposite of light
It is simply
An absence of light

Thwarting The Gloom: Senryu

THWARTING THE GLOOM

Lights switched on midday
Not shameless exorbitance
… Poetic licence

Darkness: Shadorma

DARKNESS

Whenever
Eclipse is total
I retreat
To the sky
Close all the doors and windows
And watch the clouds

Light And Dark: Shadorma

LIGHT AND DARK

In darkness
A light seeks us out
Throws a line
Lest we drown
Whilst most marvellous of all
‘Tis we who threw it

‘Neath Doom’s Trump

‘NEATH DOOM’S TRUMP

Through deepest midnight
Hid light persists in shadow
Embroiders darkness

Runes

RUNES

This wintry scenescape
Darkness and lightness abound
As for tommorow
Spring, summer, autumn for sure
As for their contents who knows?

String Of Lights (30c)

STRING OF LIGHTS

Uniting
Poets illumine
Your dark night
Of the soul
Passing the torch down the years
Lightening the load

The Googlemeisters

THE GOOGLEMEISTERS

I grew up in Acton,
While Lord Acton opined
Back in 1877
“Power tends to corrupt

and absolute power
corrupts absolutely.”
and “Great men are almost
always bad men.” Beware!

Comradeship

COMRADESHIP

We each swim through time
Spewing words like light and dark
But what do we build?
Illusions and delusions
Glad to have encountered you
