today

time’s boot clad feet
relentlessly forward march
gobbling left days of February

yet jet lag fatigue felt
this frost bitten heart by February
is waiting for a gentler March

dreams these days do escape,
knee jerking sleep drooped eyes
as if broken eggs leaking into reality

even though rudely pinged
lazy eye lays shut, active opens
wide, rampant curiosity afflicted

lo and behold ! childhood
boogies have finally outstretched
limbs intruding age fogged mind

triumphantly scaring silly
aging flabby flesh, brittle bones
forcing stand ups to take notice

time’s boot clad feet
relentlessly forward march
gobbling left days of February

yet jet lag fatigue felt
this frost bitten heart by February
is waiting for a gentler March

weather permitting

Face facing
Skywards
I question
In store
~

Plans topsy
Go belly up in no
time, weather
permitting
~
with implicit
Faith in heart
I simply accept
Going with flow
~
Accepting, never
Feeling any need
To be in know, knowing
HE best knows
~
Split
Second
Does pack
Mighty punch

parapluie

Anchoring myself
In calming greens
I combat lack of sleep
Travel will do that
I know but it does hit
Like slap of rain drenched
Parapluie

streets

nature’s confetti
strewn pavements
corridors hold own
allures
~
sniffing air
lifting eyes
I seek sky
beyond trees
~
feet
optimistically
fold streets
till endings
~
every ending
supposedly is
a new beginning
till dead ends
~
dead ends
make head take
stock, suddenly spirit
soars taking off
~

coup de grâce

NovNYC2013

winter’s sun
continues to run
weakening minute
by minute, overtaken
by myriad light eaters
on heels
~
Seasonal birds
of prey ferociously
cracking benevolent egg
yolk sun’s shell to pieces
leaking its warmth as crows
cherry picking shiny pieces
~
blustery gale force
winds offer neither leeway
nor breathers, bloodthirstily
joining forces bludgeon cornered
sun shattering in single fell
swoop coup de grâce
~
shivering
cuddling
palms cupping
hot beverages
we pray for return
of our lion maned sun
~
