Eye Contact

EYE CONTACT

In that instant
Soul to soul
One sole soul
‘I’ contact

Overcast

OVERCAST

We’ve had words
Now there’s just silence
Hanging in the air
Our backs are turned
We stare into the distance
For the present moment is
Too uncomfortable to bear
Perhaps in time …

Hopefully

Interlocutory Discourse

INTERLOCUTORY DISCOURSE

I inform you you’ve a
Quite unique way of
Employing words

But then you are
Probably aware
Of that and so

My own words?
Superfluous?
Maybe not?

Who knows?
Not you?
Nor I?

Allein: Senryu

ALLEIN

Seeking another
Full of hope and determination
Yet without success

Comet Alert

COMET ALERT

His mind and body were discovered
During her ongoing extensive search
For objects that might at some point
Disastrously impact with her planet

Fellow Traveller: Shadorma

FELLOW TRAVELLER

Perhaps we’ll
Meet along the way
Share a loaf
Recount our
Adventures and disasters
Then go on our way

Dead End: Senryu

DEAD END

Time to say fare well
She is a waste of his time
As he is of hers

Lost In Translation: Shadorma

LOST IN TRANSLATION

I love you
A complex concept
To try to
Get across
When we know so few words of
Another’s language

Anathema: Shadorma

ANATHEMA

She found it
An anathema
To answer
His question
She appeared not to realise
Just how rude it was

Cosy Castle

COSY CASTLE

Out in the black a tiny spark
Blooms into flaming flesh
That flickers, a fiery dancer
Amidst a slowly forming picture
Imagined, improved, approved as
Yes … that castle only dreamt of
Time and effort bring it into view
With towers, turrets and bartizans
Crenellations atop sturdy walls
Moat and drawbridge, portcullis
A statement of power, of dominion
A protection gainst any assault
From the envious or less fortunate
Fully equipped with arrow slits
Endless ramparts, battlements
Murder holes and oubliettes
Till in time as will in time all
The tide turns and with a sigh
The sandcastle returns to sand
