confluence

Dwarka-Port

inner river constantly
streams in hope of merging
with external flow of life
when stars would come together
in cosmic alignment enabling
both rivers to eternally unify

I, me, us

2004b46d15a2a8f713e8f48b61251326

yes
there are two of us
mirrored
me and Doppelgänger,
changeling kid no one
owns up to, least of all
us two
yet
when going gets tough
we face each other
merging to fill
need of hour
before bifurcating
and
life is a hoopla
after all
am Harlequin
Jack of none
here
merely
clowning

right eye

27-magritte

wondering if I can avoid myself today
~
Rebellious right eye
tics twenty four seven
left remains good guy
am left wondering
what’s right window
to my soul’s intent
or is it an old wives tale portent
something dire in pot, boiling?
but
am made of sterner stuff
will be up to any, all
destiny hatched plans’
foiling
sticking chin out
I shall stay
my ground
happen what
may, if at all

trapped

Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why ~ Kurt Vonnegut
~
sometimes
powers that be
come together
as if in cahoots
catching us unawares
at our most vulnerable
and trapped in that moment
flailing rendered futile
there is nary a suggestion
of an out, only choice
being either brazen
it out, or let it ride
quietly pass over
and then you pick up
the shreds of remaining
dignity to sashay out
~

heart

when mind is ruled
by heart, life can, does
turn downside up
~
what the heart
intakes are gut
feels, instinctually
~
cold light of reason
holds neither water
nor meaning
~
escape artist am not
merely allow mind expansion
heart to stay true, courageously
~
yes
am foolish like that
I do concede
~
