HO-HUM

Poppy Day
A century since
Years ago
Orwell coined
“War is peace” and “Doublethink”
Today: normalised

Presence (6b)

PRESENCE

Hands on knees
Crosslegged, spine straight
Breath even
Mind at rest
Momentary glimpse of love
Monkonditional

Shadorma November

Evening On The Porch (3a)

EVENING ON THE PORCH

Fine balance
Revelry subdued
October
Decked in leaves
I your Spring, you my Autumn
Soundless harmony

Shadorma November

Naturally: Four By Six

NATURALLY II

I see plants before me
As they stand before me
Sustained by the same air
Breathing our shared essence

Take Time

TAKE TIME

Intimate stranger
Unknown friend
Stop dead
Take time
Take time

Look around
Out there
In here
Reflect … consider
Your input

After that
Consider this
This day
May be
Your last

Heralds Of Peace

HERALDS OF PEACE

All too frequently feeling
as if, as if to be achieving,
achieving all too little beyond
a preaching to an angelic choir.

Well worn, ancient and repetitive
our words while these apostate demons
our counterpoint – admittedly
– are sadly otherwise occupied.

Yet this is our ground. Our ground!
And so here upon it we stand:
bellowing, howling, yelling,
whispering, weeping …

Whichever seems timely and appropriate.

Pax Vobiscum

PAX VOBISCUM

First the peace within
Recognition arises
Then the peace without

Points Of View

POINTS OF VIEW

To assert one should live without opinions
Is both clearly impossible and paradoxical
But to defend them or argue them to others
Is both quite pointless and often dangerous

Easy As Cake (A Piece Of Pie)

EASY AS CAKE (A PIECE OF PIE)

Make way … Stand aside
Stand aside … That’s the ticket
Just enjoy the ride

Courage

COURAGE

The courage
To still confront
Ageing, any mirror
With neither shame
Nor puling denial

The courage
Of (s)he always
The true warrior
The one ever
Disdaining weaponry
