Antiquities

Like a painter,

you shocked my senses,

vivid sharp colours,

shine in the bleak sky,

weightless immersion,

floating in warm waters,

the comfort of your approval,

 solid wooden antiquities,

the character of time.

Harm’s Way

Children, mothers, grandparents and lovers,

arms dealers laugh loudly in  a smokey room,

whiskey, vodka, champagne and cocaine,

cannabis on the roll,

playing in the background, war zone TV,

let’s toast,

that is life,

that is nature,

if not me then them,

life moves slowly on,

in time each one disappears,

some painfully and a few without any discomfort,

replaced by another,

a louder laugh,

a different drink,

occasionally the same,

different drugs,

occasionally the same,

do your job right,

do your job well,

or spend an eternity,

wasted in hell,

 

 

 

Wild Wind

As the wild wind blows across my being,

the lies, the cries and all the foreseeing,

my consciousness is left behind,

I am now elements,

I feel the rain on my face,

as I walk through this rugged beautiful place,

the warmth, the reminders,

the receptive eccentric,

that loves to dance,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

History

She ran through his veins, like a mighty raging torrent,

Manners, mannerisms all abhorrent,

She struck, she decided,

He and his worlds all collided,

Like the clean, cool air after a storm,

Through her depictions he was reborn,

She tore at his timid beast,

Until actions, like a bird released,

All settled and withered away,

Waiting for another perfect time of day,

For her to reach out and have her say,

History and her lessons,

Help us decide the way,

Youthful Delusions

I retreated

Backed away

Closed the shop

Shut up for the day

This time I had nothing to say

Void

Where once youth bubbled

Stone cold expressions

Vacant, abstract conclusions

The heartache of youthful delusions

Flowers

The moment as deep as you can perceive,

time stands more than still,

beautiful as the cool night,

gentle summer Sun,

deep delicate colours,

rugged and wild,

natural delight,

Forever ready

As the sun rose,

she was ready, waiting,

watching, walking, waiting,

ready before the dawn,

ready to serve,

they followed her drum,

that is why they had come,

drawn together forever,

nature and her might,

always she was ready,

a force we do not see,

life’s delicate balance,

reality,

continuing, aware, she understands,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gravity

The world and my weaknesses,

Crush me,

Gravity out of control,

Disingenuous,

Predators, a dark tank of sharks,

Joyous moments and happy smiles,

Clean fresh water, life,

Sugar, carbonated coke lifts my spirits,

we all come to pass,

A couple of casual comments summarise,

Over there they lie,

Another takes their turn,

Hopefully it is possible to learn,

 

 

 

 

Warmth

I sit watching and listening to the trees,

waving on a soft summer night,

my spirits lift,

my body feels the warm wind that sways the branches,

misery and despair make way for care,

finally you are sat with me,

as temporary as the seasons,

I cannot give you my reasons,

they watch on,

waiting until he is gone,

sniggering, bitter wit,

pieces of shit,

my heart still hurts,

my head feels heavy,

moments pass,

I wish to be free,

filling myself with clean air,

my heart ignites, I love you so,

please, I never want to go,

 

Comprehension

We took turns to be misunderstood,

words turned to glass,

as winter took it’s last,

cold victory,

satisfying Spring,

painted and bathed,

a festival of love,

falling summer rain,

shattered blue sky,

little yellow strikes of burning light,

the sun shone through us,

we ignited,

kinetically delighted,

dark but fair,

deep and blue,

could what your saying,

possible be true,

I don’t like to stop to wander,

nor shall I let us stand here while I ponder,

every single second of every interaction,

chasing laws of maths,

she smiles when he laughs,
