mind’s sieve

time drops
moments
through mind’s
sieve
~
retrievals
are hard acts
to follow by worn
limbs
~
limber mind
weaves fresh
moments
for cheer
~
thus we pass
time playing
cat and mouse
with time
~
time
will tell
they say, ears
eagerly wait
~
patience
is, was never
my strong suit, I
reach for jokers
~
cooling heels
doesn’t abate
worry’s flush
I go for broke

breathers

~
take
heart
m’dear
we are all
emotional
rivers
born
to succor
maintaining
continuous flows
each one
emptying
into
what’s
empty
~
here
let me
hold
you
awhile
until you
stabilize
~
once
in a while
everyone
breaks
boundaries
forcibly
bearing away
all in stride
~
let’s
heal
repair broken
take
a
breather
and
regain
control

‘And then

you will ask me
why….’

and I’ll reiterate
incomplete kangaroo
carry’s complete
imperfect perfect
every end
is but a new
beginning
so
m’dear
lose neither
hope
nor
faith

A finished tale of unfinished tales.

I want to stay

i want
to stay
fluttering
in the shallow
boat of your palm
: : :
basking
pirouetting
humming
lazily relaxing
in your orbit
: : :
until
: : :
mind’s matter
worn out
by time’s
relentless
trample
: : :
begins
to unravel
Ps Qs
alarmingly
queued
and
: : :
you become
a sepia memory
locked away in my
mind’s locket without
a clue
: : :
out of blue
whiffs, wafts
goosebumps
deja vu startles
notwithstanding
: : :
I won’t have a clue

Painting: Gustav Klimt

coming to terms

coming to terms
was arrived at
after much heart
burning
soul search
was not in picture
stress was mostly
karmic
now standing
at crossroads
of sixes sevens
I lack math skills
guessing
is usually
fifty-fifty
hit miss
I hold
breath now
wait for pennies
