Heart Friends

HEART FRIENDS

A true friend then
Is not that coward
Who’s too fearful
To risk your anger

Yet brave enough
To bitch about you
To other people
In your absence

It took you years
To recognise this
But the other kind
Don’t even notice

Family II

FAMILY II

So I suggested
To my mother and father
(She coming first)

That we discuss
Our being here together
And much else besides

And then awoke
To the chilling realisation
Of this cold reality

Thank You But Know (A Four By Six)

THANK YOU BUT KNOW

Genuine, authentic
Not words that spring to mind
Unless a not’s nearby
Yet you suggest friendship?

Bigotry

BIGOTRY

To understand others
Especially those we see as other than ourselves
Requires that we are first honest with ourselves
And then forgive

This level of depth of observation
Is frequently unknown to these “grown-ups”
Never mind the effort of being
Explored and examined

Bard Unbarred

BARD UNBARRED

Words which ring hollow
However bright their sparkle
Are but fairy gold.
Cast off then duteous ties,
These odious bars. Fly free!

Ma Vraie Histoire

MA VRAIE HISTOIRE

What greater challenge
Than to drop the mask and write
Of our own stories?
In pen and ink or keyboard
Plain words that sparkle with truth

Walking The Talk

WALKING THE TALK

None see our feelings
We think and talk of our love
Action’s how they tell

Friendship

FRIENDSHIP

Let’s seek in friendship
Quality not quantity
Truth not appearance

The Lost Lamb

THE LOST LAMB

Stumbled today while browsing
As is alas too frequently the case
‘pon words of a fellow scribbler
Who had also, seems, stumbled

Without either failing to notice
Or perhaps even failed to care

Gave up the ghost of inspiration
Fumbled on and so misstepped
Then published (and be damned)
With time leaning on the doorbell

No blame or judgement of mine
(Beyond those too late to deny)
Yet I miss what might have been
Without a premature judgement

The untimely call to strike camp
Better listen to the inner voice
The heart – the inspiring spirit
O go ye seek the one lost lamb

Old habits loom large
And they cast a long shadow
Take stock and take charge
