Chars

Chars jar
Set teeth on edge
But today am determined
To address unsavory
Intermingling life savories  

Don’t look askance
Soul is still incandescent
But can no longer ignore
Black boleros framing light
Arm wrestling, pitching might

Frames do matter
Highlighting framed
Dark enhancing protagonist
Light, unwittingly
Ironical perspective(ly)

Strength, power of hundred percent
Purity, can be tad hard on bellies
In these deliberate GMO times
I’ve taken to accepting  untainted
Half loaves, bitter sweet schmeered

Déjà vu moment hurled me back half
Century, down poem(ing) word tunnel
Mom’s beloved shawl, exquisitely embroidered
Warmed hubby’s back, drab background enlivened
By unruly scarlet roses, planted, stitch by skillful stitch

I’ve learnt to accept joy, grief
Life’s bitters, sweets admixed
Sweet tart moments taste even better
Chiaroscuro light shadow plays fascinate
No challenge can break this stubborn back

Chars jar
Set teeth on edge
But today am determined
To address unsavory
Intermingling life savories
