tyrant heart

This
tyrant
heart
of mine
grips
mind
treating it
so cavalierly
as if it were
a plaything
emotionally
blackmailing
by skipping
own beats
starting
stopping
at will….
scaring
it
silly
forgetting
it now
resides
in an older
aging body
not in
a burgeoning
recalcitrant
child

labyrinth

why
are human
emotions such a labyrinth
why can’t they be straight
up down concrete avenues
softened by nuzzling trees
preening
seasonally strewing
flowers….
in between
color-bursts
of enflamed
falls
fiery
chameleonic
leaves…leaving
in droves

many
splendored love
is
too much
of a
precious jewel
to be
strewn
carelessly
..
Just because everything is different doesn’t mean anything has changed ~ Irene Peter

framing (new)

fate has framed
citing karmic
theories

all my life
I’ve swum
against tide
..
never easy
traveling roads
hitherto untrodden
..
fate says
I am a messenger
I declare “no, am the message”
..
Go Figure
meanwhile
moon offers moonshine

old love from another life

( sorting old stuff : written notes, sepia photos can often hurl down memory lanes )
~

sudden sight of you
…has taken me aback
now revolting currents
are volt(ing)
in my veins
molten in wattage
as if every fiber
was on fire and
your killer smile
is still my undoing….
age may’ve
taken it’s toll
but my embers
remain warm
and glowing …..
certain loves
never know
when to quit….
~

when you love

“Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.” … Iris Murdoch

~
when you love
with whole heart
there is never a holding back
you simply plunge headlong
not worrying about consequences
and the emotion
the act
and
outcome
become a wonderful
memory chain
pleasuring
endlessly
~
the kiss by Klimt – viewing this gorgeous painting was an awesome experience- at the Upper Belvedere, Vienna, Austria and I came away completely awed
