romancing words yet again

romancing words
i lovingly fondle them
as if they were pleasing
surfaces of my favorite
old stone from Ireland
that I fondly pocket carry
~
giddy joy and love I’ve
spilt once too many..now am
mastering art of containment
as ones I wish to indulge court
are way too young..alas villain
age disallows further tarry…
~
entering inner sanctuary
I make peace with past laments
laying to rest pet peeves’ torment
squaring off life dealt equations
avowing to be sufficient unto self
for final verse : untethering my soul …

Penumbrae

twilight’s
onset
has me
hastily
fashion cudgels
from splintered
light
for combatting
dark forces
filming past
every
night

post slaying
of splayed darknesses
of depression
firmly staying their march
Vagabond soul
thus continues it’s
nocturnal forays …fully lit
in core …unperturbed
by encasing penumbrae
of real
surreal
~

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
~
