Jiggle

like a jiggle of boxed
lottery numbers
I pull out one
emotion at a time
for reflection…
~
after a once over
It’s either “yea or nay”
thus pulling, accepting
rejecting…I adjust my
daily mood’s change…
~
Russian roulette
times call for new
survival techniques
always a rebel…never one
for line toeing, I go for broke…
~
nails bitten to bone
now ache in dullness
as lusterless eyes scan
skies for better than tepid
bright yolk sun gone missing..
~
moon is clueless lurking
only when light burns out
stars being small potatoes
don’t count… perhaps I’d better
lend my dumbbells to dullard sun…
~
Hope bides time around
kitty corners …always necking
with aplomb..patience being it’s middle
name as it’s aware time’s anaconda
shall ultimately swallow everyone
~

sensory memories

~
grieving smiling
in turns I recall
her tiny quick
culinary fixes
and suddenly
my morning
takes on an extra
glow as if I was
with her…..
~
pressing another
head of a clove
with index thumb
into my second
cuppa already
cardamon flavored
I smile and weep
in returns…a love like
ours has a life of it’s own
~
I’ve tried to drown my sorrows in tea, but they are strong swimmers……

safe haven

touched
by
amazing grace
fingers hum
in air ….
feelers seeking
space
between spaces…..
for squirreling
away..
unshared tender
moments…
programmed
for firing synapses
when mind
blunders about
lost in time’s fog
for gentle
reeling in
to
love’s safe
keeping

 

 

miasma

~
beset by glowering
grey skies
i forbid miasma
to overpower
usual bouncy
spirit
~
deep sleep
post binge on Golden
Globes avec Dame Streep’
De Mille speech heartened
weft woof of heart mind’s
despair in life’s loom
~
amidst morning’s
soul stirring mantra chants
I who no longer seek anything
but Him from Him now pray
for safe steer of my beloved
adopted home’s safe moorings
~
a diffident prayer
that am letting blossom
to uplift darkened skies
letting hope and innate goodness
forever prevail overthrowing
apathies in one fell swoop
~
hands
come together
in tandem
eyes warm
to inner glow
buoyantly burning bright
~
