Trimurti (The Writer’s Lot) – (A Four By Six)

TRIMURTI (THE WRITER’S LOT)

Departure Lounge

DEPARTURE LOUNGE

Motion suspended
Awaiting call to action
Anticipation
Flickering candles of thought
Like tiny sparks in the night

On The Crests Of Waves

ON THE CRESTS OF WAVES

What new worlds shall we
Not simply determine to create
But share today?

What new worlds shall we
Not simply determine to share
But create today?

She Seats Herself To Write

SHE SEATS HERSELF TO WRITE

She seats herself to write

Half fearing her writing
Will drive her mad while
Half hopes it will cure her

In two minds – Ah, if only
Thinks were so simple
Turmoil turmoil turmoil

Enough! Dismisses them all
And seats herself to write

Two I’s Had I

TWO I’S HAD I

One vanished
Banished
Into memory

T’other survived
Lived
To tell our tale

VINCENT’S BROTHER’S BROTHER

Are you also one
I wonder who are unknown
Until they are gone?

The Wrong Approach

THE WRONG APPROACH

The world my oyster
And I the hopeful diver
With a plastic knife

Wedded To Verse

WEDDED TO VERSE

For better or for worse
A poet likes to lift
A stone to see what is
Going on under there

To Not To Be

TO NOT TO BE

Shakespeare left nothing
Beyond his art; his life was
Immaterial
