Tumbleweed

Tumbleweed

My hair is like-

Like tumbleweed.

Am so bored,

As bored as one can be.moon cloud red gold.pngDance for life.png1.pngdrawing with light.

Mutable, malleable.

Existence.

A theory of everything.

Split the atom.

The theory of nothing.

Splits, appears, disappears.

Into inky black.

In star burst magic.

Endless, restless.DSCN0867.jpgf.jpgq.jpgn.jpgb.jpgx.jpgb

Tumbleweed whirls.

Wisps of time fly by.

Falling through space.

Drifting, lifting.

In a timeless race.

Infinite.

Trying to keep pace.

Tumbleweed frames my face.

I See Her. On seeing deaths in Eastern Ukraine, people fleeing, where a democracy should have spared them.

St. Brigit's Cross.
St. Brigit’s Cross.

When I see her

A freeze frame

On digital air

Pain passes pity

As in strife

She turns to let go

A last glance at life

She leaves her elements

To earth’s seas and stars

Never hearing, soothing laments.

I see her, I see our life, there.

She is, you, me.

Her lost love

Taken by stealth

No blessing, no comfort.

A witness to death.

A record, an image

For posterity’s breath.

Her soul, for safety,

Joining souls in ether’s air.

Her life,

Life’s dear wish. Lost.

As society flees,

Rage and

The River of Life.  Runs to the Sea.
The River of Life. Runs to the Sea.
Mother and baby
Mother and baby

Blood red seas.

Evil has stolen

Her human dress.

Evil has left,

Love bereft.

Criminals cut love’s tender root.

Cruel hate

War’s crushing truth.

War’s command fears flight.

As love beams light,

Through dark cold night.

A lighthouse lamp

Shines laser white.

For her, forever, for everyone,

For love is infinite.

Neon Moon

Curve of Light

Sapphire Blue

Draws Midnight.

She walks, by

Roses in Bloom.

Quietly,

Love lingers,

In Natures room.

Silence is, the Sickle Moon.

Petals Drift

Drifting Hill and Tree.

Drifting osmosis deep,

Her love must Sleep.

She let’s go,

Into the Deep.

Deep Sapphire Sleep.

A curve of moonbeam,

On ocean’s blue.

Is anyone there?

Not now, not here.

A Silver Ship,

In moonlit  flight.

She will never know.

She sails, a universe of light.

She sails, calmly, free.

As midnight falls,

On a Sapphire Sea.

May Flowers by the Bay.

As daffodils do

So cherry blossom too,

Flowers illusion

Only to leave with the wind in confusion

Her blossoms generous

As time is not

Tears as days

Like rain, cannot last.

As breezes blow

Petals follow her mast

Petal strewn paths

Lime green grass.

Cotton white sailings

Over a dazzling sea

Billowing clouds rise

Horizon’s silver align.

Sail clouds drift

Skies bright blue

Drifting, drifting,

She thinks of you.

Shell pearl illuminates

Shimmering sea glass

A painting for Venus

As spring floats pass.

A mirror sees a moment

On blue clouded day

Mayflowers, reminders,

For love by the bay.

Spring Flowers

The mind likes to meander, so here is Dandelion Rd.

Taking a holiday from life’s ups and downs,

Even a walk along country lanes,

Gives release from mind’s journey.

Social conscience and family, war and politics

Burns one out, after a while.

So here’s to goofing,

Daydreaming call it what you may.

Certainly, some employers view it with dismay!

So I look back amused,

What’s this?, says the muse.

Laugh and be subdued,

Life is fun sometimes,

But not to be abused.

War clouds make a pall,

Upon this earth.

Beauty is for all,

Stars are not exclusive,

As survival of the fittest.

So near to peace,  so far away,

Hope and fate,

Combine, mastering our

Journey to the end.

We do not know,

What awaits.

Time

Time
Time

A girl, a woman, a mother Hot tears fall Time has past Remember all Nothing did last Waterfalls flow Over rock Over soft green fern Eros’s arrow Satin petals’s of sorrow Velvet pink rose Flows upon winding streams White light beams On distant snow Tears of light Silver and gold Silent in the blue Blue womb of night.

War

Willow 4War circulates

Through time and tide

Through life, aeon’s of life

War raises ugly ghosts

Profits and structures

Structuring shapes

Brutal thought

Obsession and wealth

Cleaves, carves blue graphs

A hideous planet

Replica of

Unimaginative mind

Held captive

To control in uniformity

Domination’s game

Boring and insane.
