Again And Again

AGAIN AND AGAIN

Each moment is a learning
If we are able to take heed
Thus we spark one another
Into some new fresh blazing

Legerdemain

LEGERDEMAIN

Permanence and impermanence dance a jig
All the fun of the fair in a pig in a fancy poke
Participant spectators, laughing hysterically
Act impressed while secretly not quite so sure

Blink Blink

BLINK BLINK

Behind eyes of Who-knows?
Here sits One Eye unblinking
Unmarked, unseen, unheard
Watches out wondering why

Teeth within teeth spit time
Tame original now renegade
Time without age undreams
Emits sleek words like swords

Emits sleek words like swords
Time without age undreams
Tame original now renegade
Teeth within teeth spit time

Watches out wondering why
Unmarked, unseen, unheard
Here sits One Eye unblinking
Behind eyes of Who-knows?

Strider

STRIDER

Striding on through the world
Drawing it close around her
Like a pair of old slippers
Worn smooth by tireless pacing

Striding on through the world
Drawing it close around her
Like a comforting cloak
Proffered in a time of poverty

Striding on through the world
Drawing it close around her
Like a stuttering lighthouse
Glimpsed at the edge of revelation

Striding on through the world
Drawing it close around her
Like an envelope addressed to the future
Scrawled in an unknown tongue

Holy Foolishness

HOLY FOOLISHNESS

Much wisdom may be accrued
Through simple observation
Free of the rampant filtration
That converts it into nonsense

Duplicity

DUPLICITY

Much to learn
From others’ secrets
Even more, perhaps
From reviewing one’s own

New Dreams

NEW DREAMS

A new dream adrift
A further wing
Of an ever
Expanding mansion

A new dream aloft
A further wing
Exploring an ever
Expanding sky

Courtship

COURTSHIP

Thou and I, sundry hundreds
Bob back and forth, to and fro
Centre court, Wimbledon
Final score: love all

This one’s for Betty.

Swings And Roundabouts

SWINGS AND ROUNDABOUTS

We tread the track
From womb to hearse
Some things improve
While some get worse

Love Of My Life A Passion Play

LOVE OF MY LIFE A PASSION PLAY

Ticktock game with unity split in two
Who from behind their fences fence
Winning or losing a passing illusion
A timeless afternoon’s entertainment
