Here We Are

HERE WE ARE

We know, we know not
Mystery tempers boredom
Lifetimes tick away

Cheep Talk

CHEEP TALK

Talk is cheap
Talk is common
Chitchatting away
Of this and that
Speaks of sunsets
Of suns going down
When it’s backs turning
Obeying a planetary spin
I’ll use plurals here
As each of us
Has a sun

We madmen
Madwomen we
In our hidden hearts
Live in our own dreamtimes
Encircling our own central axis
Round which this outer earth and sun
(With a moon as a loony sidekick)
From birth to death revolve

In truth the sun never sets
Nor does the earth
For that matter
Simply spins
And spins

Metamorphic metaphor
Cloaking the untaught truth
It doesn’t matter if you don’t mind
Take a break for a moment and pause
At the crux – the axis – of all of this and that
Here-I-am & now-is-now & I-am-I & this-is-it
Now where is our next breath coming from?
How do we know that? Actually we don’t
We are an incomprehensible miracle
Given the grace of time to seek
While stars and planets spin

Another Take On Valentine’s Day

Explorer (16a)

EXPLORER

Mystery
Childhood favourite
Whyspering
In my ear
Fairy stories beckoned me
Hinting at ingress

Looking here
Looking there of course
(OCD)
Each stone turned
Discovering vibrant life
Cloaking … Mystery

Cats abound
Frolic unbounded
Wonderland’s

Let us keep an open mind
Mysteriously

Beneath sky’s covers
We share love’s
Mysteries
A celestial duvet
Our private heaven

Old Lovers: Four By Six

OLD LOVERS

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

Gambol, Gambol

GAMBOL, GAMBOL

“Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.”

Gambol, gambol, little lamb
How I wonder who I am!
Dancing, prancing, high then low,
Never knowing where I go.
