Exit Stage Left……

Tres Hombres

Tres Hombres (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Exit Stage Left……

Hello Old Friends

A Simple Nod to Times Past

The Hair is Lesser or Gray These Days

A Bit Crustier We Certainly Are

Few Hours Sharing Laughs, We’ve Not Lost That

Uncovering So Many Exploits Past

How Did The Time Go So Quickly?

Tres Hombres Staring at Fifty

Minus the Hubris of Youth

Acceptance of What Truly Is

No Illusions, No Fear, No Defiance

 Just Different Dreams and Wandering Paths

Took the Longest To Figure Out

That the Twinkle was always in Our Eyes

Focus was on Things Far and Distant Places

For a Morning,

Reunited

And Young Again……..

Chaser of the Stars

Vaguest Glimpse Infinity  

Scattered Dusts Times Past

of Black Days and the Desolation Refugee

 

Rising from the Ashes

Brushing Off The Dusts

of Lost Times

and

Energies Zapped

Finally Calling Out By Name

Recognizing Familiar Face

In New Disguise

My Tormentor

Depression

I’m Freed Once Again

from It’s Shackles

Now To Pull

at it’s Roots……

Crossings

The Morning Follies of Old Men

Regaling Exploits Past and Lusts Once of a Vibrant Youth Gone By

The Spirit Remains Young and Fiery, Even as The Hairline Fades  

All Before The Sun Rises on a Saturday Morning

 

Transformed to Youth through some Magical Fountain of Vigor

 Dusting Off of Old War Stories that Left Part of Them Behind on Far Lands

All Before The Sun Rises on a  Saturday Morning

Laughter Echoes off the Painted Walls and Murals

 

Pool Windows Steam, Outside the Distant Trains Slowly Clank down Rusted Tracks

The Old Men Glance over the Ice as the Youth Effortlessly Glide over the Ice

Expectations now Tempered , Passed Through the Mazed Corridors of Experience and Time

Thoughts Return to Plans Yet Unrealized and Onetime Expectations Lost    

 

Reality Far Outcries Unrequited Avarice Built of Time Elapsed and Hopes Not Yet Undefiled

 Goodbyes and Tipped Caps Greetings of Middle and Old Men Exit Past The Youth onto the Slick Ice

Expectations now Tempered , Passed Through the Mazed Corridors of Experience and Time

Of Exits, Entries, and Cycles without End

Raging

Posted in Free Verse Poetry with tags , , , , on November 9, 2012 by lengesinski

Raging

She Rages

Absolute Fury Displayed

Dearth of Compassion

As the Winds Howled Louder and Harder

The Sea was Pushed Up Over The Land

No Quarter, No Quarter

As Lives, Homes, and All Things Equally

Were Laid to Waste

A Final Relenting, Passing

Aftermath

Picking Up The Many Broken Pieces, Resetting, Resettling

Reality Slaps the Face Again

Counting and Feeling The Full Effect of Loss
