Words To Music

It’s a while since we had music. But no more. 😀

Words?
You want words?
Hear and think on.
Awakening is but a breath away.
But staying (t)here …
Now, that’s another matter …
Meantime … (Me in time)
sit back and enjoy …

Talk, it’s only talk
Arguments, agreements, advice, answers,
Articulate announcements
It’s only talk

Talk, it’s only talk
Babble, burble, banter, bicker bicker bicker
Brouhaha, balderdash, ballyhoo
It’s only talk
Back talk

Talk talk talk, it’s only talk
Comments, clichés, commentary, controversy
Chatter, chit-chat, chit-chat, chit-chat,
Conversation, contradiction, criticism
It’s only talk
Cheap talk

Talk, talk, it’s only talk
Debates, discussions
These are words with a D this time
Dialogue, duologue, diatribe,
Dissension, declamation
Double talk, double talk

Talk, talk, it’s all talk
Too much talk
Small talk
Talk that trash
Expressions, editorials, explanations, exclamations, exaggerations
It’s all talk
Elephant talk? Elephant talk? Elephant talk!

Hammer

HAMMER

Words, music, image
All three hammer at your door
Yet it is unlocked

Mary Oliver: In Memoriam

MARY OLIVER: IN MEMORIAM

Flesh and bone may decay
Her words, all the thoughts
All the feelings they evoke
Shall remain to nourish us

Spellmeister II

SPELLMEISTER II

Exhausted
Lets go words
Lets go all images

In vivid silence
String quartets
Sprout pirouettes

Free of intent
Dances and teases
Patterns born of chaos

All Alone

ALL ALONE

Pity October
Stuck between all those embers
No one seems to care

Wavingnweaving

WAVINGNWEAVING

Waving to weavers
While weaving while wondering
Why weave and why why
While weaving while wandering
Wondering, weaving, waving

This is dedicated to all readers who are also writers, and especially those who may be called – by themselves or by others – poets.

All In All

ALL IN ALL

When all is connected
All is connected

Within without
Above below

Before behind
Behind before

Who dare (not) put
The all in Allah?

For after all
(And before all)

Before behind
Behind before

And besides …

Who would wish
To flee and why?

Meantime who dare decry
Use of any word at all?

View, view and then review
As time goes by

Best review who reviews
And why and how

Heresy (28a)

HERESY

Explosive
This marriage of words
Half-closed doors
Fly open
Naked, virgin thoughts scamper
Hither and thither

SPELLMEISTER

Lets go words
Lets go images
String quartets
Pirouettes
Drops intent, spins and teases
Patterns from chaos

Sonnet 18 À La Shadorma (6a)

SONNET 18 À LA SHADORMA

Well worn words
Shall I compare thee …
Words worn smooth
Words sucked dry
Yet I revive them, gift you
Immortality
