Limbo

LIMBO

Swing ‘twixt hope and fear
Unending uncertainty
Our sole companion
Sweating like limbo dancers
Watching the lowering pole

Hope II

HOPE II

May hope never die
But be the one to host
The joyful celebration
Of dreams come true
And of achievements
As yet undreamt of

‘Neath Doom’s Trump

‘NEATH DOOM’S TRUMP

Through deepest midnight
Hid light persists in shadow
Embroiders darkness

Magpie

MAGPIE

Passion runs
And ruins
our lives

Infuses
And refuses
In equal measure

She Seats Herself To Write

SHE SEATS HERSELF TO WRITE

She seats herself to write

Half fearing her writing
Will drive her mad while
Half hopes it will cure her

In two minds – Ah, if only
Thinks were so simple
Turmoil turmoil turmoil

Enough! Dismisses them all
And seats herself to write

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

Dreams Of Glory

DREAMS OF GLORY

Hope springs eternal
While empires decay and die
Without being mourned

Friday 13th

FRIDAY 13th

The worse today gets
How easier to improve
It’s for tomorrow

Hope And Best Wishes

Miss Jones

MISS JONES

We lost one another somehow, lost our way
In a trick of the light in a mist in a maze

Gasping, grasping, grappling day after day
As seconds turn into minutes, hours, days

So long, so long by some cruel fate kept apart
Yet memories glow in my mind, dear old friend

And it’s chin up, stand firm and never lose heart
For some day we’ll revel together again in the end
