The Bird And The Wanderer (A Shadorma)

THE BIRD AND THE WANDERER (A Shadorma)

Hark that bird
Perched for a moment
Serenade
Could it be
Me he sweetly addresses?
Will he call once more?

Hold my breath

Down the path
Stride after stride unfolding
An unsure future

Welcome To This Atomic World

WELCOME TO THIS ATOMIC WORLD

Events pass us by
In a particular way
And sometimes they wave

Insecurity

As a gift or a request?
I’m never certain.

Second Hand Roses

SECOND HAND ROSES

Elsewhere they tell us

Preacher, Teacher, Scientist, Anchor
There’s no sooth in their proffered proof

Better to simply watch their lips flapping
With the Sound on Mute and ears open

To that other unadvertised broadcast
To all those to whom it may concern

Equivocation

EQUIVOCATION

I am not certain
I am worthy of the gift
Of another day

On the other hand
Perhaps tomorrow’s just more
Deserved punishment

Not Enough Then

NOT ENOUGH THEN

You had had enough
You drew a line in the sand
Then the wind came by …

Billet-doux II

BILLET-DOUX II

Left a little sign
Somewhere where you would find it
A clumsy attempt

Never was too good
At drawing the perfect heart
But the intention …

Honey Trap

HONEY TRAP

Beneath the surface
Shimmering halls of mirrors
Promise amazement!

Curiosity assuaged!
Infinite regress is all
A maze meant to snare
