Dear Sister

DEAR SISTER

The moment is always
The right moment
Months pass by
In the outside world
Lost at times
Within them we battle on

I think of you yes
From moment to moment.
Today a moment drops me here
And seems I “have” a moment
To write to you and wonder
How things are with you

You may fear you are forgotten
But this is not so and besides
Our individual identities
Are merely an illusion
A blink of the eye

Our sufferings simply illusions
We burden our “serves” with
And time another illusion
Accept, accept, accept
I shall be sending you blessings

As I always am, was and shall

Five Day Song Challenge: Day Five

Audrey Dawn – The Oldest Daughter & Red Headed Sister suggested I address myself to meeting this challenge. Two difficulties arise: I. as long time readers will know, I have already posted a number of my favourites so they aren’t eligible; 2. I am by necessity limited to tracks which are freely available on line. In retaliation I decided not to further restrain myself to sticking solely to tracks with lyrics.

5. James Taylor – Stop Thinkin’ ‘Bout That.

3. Tim Buckley – I Must Have Been Blind.

The lyrics can be found at http://www.metrolyrics.com/i-must-have-been-blind-lyrics-tim-buckley.html. I have always heard something a little different from “To live in her life and never trustin'” as written here. What do you think?

Dare Devils (Reposted)

DARE DEVILS

Sly peeps from a foxhole I spy
Which of you though I wonder
Is the least untrustworthy one?
Variations on you taking turns
Flash past the slits of my eyes
Each taking their best shots

Taking their own sweet time
While I too take mine slowly
Ploughing through mugshots
Of women both lost and found
Tacitly playing judge and jury
Accuser and accused alike

Oh don’t make me lie to you
Let’s drop stubborn opinions
Let me lie with you instead
See us gratefully transported
To some other place far away
Yet together here all the time

Game, Set And Match

GAME, SET AND MATCH

Fear is the mind killer it’s said
But isn’t it as clear arrogance

(Its crooked by-blow offspring)
Is never lagging too far behind

She taught him this years ago
But sadly he failed to learn it

He taught her this years ago
But sadly she failed to learn it

To blame … teacher or pupil?
Or maybe it’s a double fault

Accidental Betrayals (A Four By Six)

ACCIDENTAL BETRAYALS

Adrift in this jet stream
Futures already gone
No longer remembered
Those unforgettables

Shocks

SHOCKS

Some shocks thunderbolts
Hurled across the living room
“That’s it, I’m leaving”

Some are more subtle
Tiny changes day by day
Not even noticed

An old photograph
Depicts a startling stranger
We no longer are

Falling Out

FALLING OUT

Winter exhales ice
Freezing the passing moment
Rigid we await
Until with change of seasons
We melt in each arms

Misstep

MISSTEP

I give you my whole
What do I get in return?
The hole I fall in

Fire II

FIRE II

Fire – a good friend
A dangerous enemy
Some people likewise
