Bend

sensualA fork in the road;

Face the wind

And walk into the storm’s torrent-

Or

Submit to the usual step

Of life’s dull pace

And follow your mother’s dream.

I bend;

Accepting the lover’s push,

And smile as I come;

Transferable

Bliss.

 

 

 

Echo

narcissus2She left the noisy city to escape

The crowds.

Festival time always brought

Out the worst in people.

A day in the country

With only her thoughts for company

Would be heaven;

Honey, crust and grape.

She found him

Hours from  humanity

Gazing into the water.

The tanned and taught body

Of a hunter.

With the awe of a human

Who has walked into the realm of a god

She sits and admires.

He ignores-

Self-seeking and disconnected.

She lingers

Subservient

Alone

Waiting for his reply.

Illusion

She entered unannounced

Her voice

Soft as an autumn breeze

A lover’s caress.

She silenced the chaos.

Apple scented beauty

Just out of reach.

Soon.

Soon,

She said.

And so you wait.

Dad

I pushed his wheelchair
Into the theatre;
His sacred ground.
The stage was his world;
Escape from
Now.
Maybe the past.
Away from love and pain.
In the Christmas Carol
He always played
The comic relief.
Smile and laugh
Though your heart is breaking
And your world is falling.
They dedicated the performance to him
And he cried.
I refused.
I would be his rock.
As he was always mine.

Interior

A voice I know
Calls from the cavern.
It bounces
From stalagmite to stalactite.
I concentrate
Eager to understand
The message.
Sometimes the voice
Of her.
Sometimes the voice
Of him.
Fear
Of faltering, falling,
Failing to be what I might be
What I want to be.
Inhale.
Trust.
And
Create.

 

Luck

Turning the corner
The sun light washes away the shadows
It took a lifetime to get here.
A photo album
Of life’s lessons;
Memories cherished
Faces best left forgotten.
Stop.
Cherish the moment.
Inhale
And submit to the whim
Of fate.

 

Translation

Turning the corner
In a foreign land
The light plays tricks on the mind.
The stone fortress lies
Sleeping
Like an enchanted princess.
Tendrils of ivy
Twining
Providing a canopy;
A fairy tale domain.
A panoply of offerings adorn:
Cloth, paper and metal
Offerings to a noble god.
At the heart
A labyrinth .

One more can in the cupboard.

Lost mittens and ripped snow pants.
