heart head, head, heart

Picassomisstress

“When the heart speaks, the mind finds it indecent to object.” ~ Milan Kundera,
The Unbearable Lightness of Being
~
desire being desire
can’t be bleached
or laundered
~
heart and head lines
more often than not
collide, not collude
~
rest of body
left fending
for self

in between
bears full brunt
of these fall outs
~
Painting is by Pablo Picasso

mind’s wheels

IMG_1945

mind’s
wheels toss
turn
turning…
churning…
snatches
of emotions
into solidly fluid
poetry
ever in motion
~
emotions rock
roll piano(ing)
soft tones
to crescendoes
never pausing
at diminuendos
one extreme
to another
ever
turning
returning

Pecking Time

IMG_1966

pecking time

paused
between
flights of fancy
we peck time
unhurriedly

suddenly as we hurry
his hand seeks mine
in unplanned hugging and
reassured, my shaky gait
finds equilibrium

joy, grief moments happen
in small outbursts as those timed
spurts dotting Yellowstone Natl. park
I love entering and owning both
equally

Everything
in life is twinned
light shadow play
yin yang, what goes round
comes around

c’est vie verily

our friendship

I cherish
our friendship.
Unhurriedly arrived at
like a slow ripening fruit
with much humor
great repartee
mutual love
and respect
space and above all
great camaraderie

eyes and hooks

hook

novel out of box
strayed thoughts
few lovingly polished
bon mots
hook mind
in vise grips
tripping circuitry
~
lazy legs
involuntarily abandoning couch
compete with tapping fingers
tripping thoughts
flying post haste
spilling thought bubbles
to finally ease off, safely
anchored : hooks
dovetailing eyes
