A Moment’s Kiss

A Moment’s Kiss


Hesitation’s pause


like longest hours


there for the taking

but for an ever twirling dance

…uncertainty’s cold paralysis


lost moments

 …ticking off

never once halted

time’s staid guardianship




the plane of indecision is broken


this, the first of many


stolen moments

Jagged Cold Winds

Ever Wildly Galloping

Under Canopy


Gray Skies

Readying for

Winter’s Frigid Embrace

As Seasons Change


The Wicked Immediacy


Of Turning Colours

of Autumn

Rudely Ushered Out

For Snows and Cold


Prepare to Cover


In Preperation


Her Slumber


Eventual Renewal

And Promise


Kiss of Spring

Led Out of Darkness

Eyes Focused Pinpoints of Light

Hope Challenges Heart



Better Days Ahead

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Progression Teasing



Exercise Caution

Blind Steps Circles Frustration

Digging Hole Deeper

Teasing the Angels

With Damning Cup

Full to the Brim



Cursed as

Tantalus’ forever Cursed Reachings

Towards Branches

of Such Poisoned Fruit Above

Teased from afar

Faintest Twinkling,

Briefest Glint

Fool’s Gold

Cursed to be Pulled Back

By The Weight

Of Own Blinding Greed

Into the Swallowing Echoed

Dark Abyss Below

No Matter,

For Once Again

The Cost Will be Dared

Reality be Damned

Many Pardons

For any Numbed Slumberings

No Longer Capable of

Deeper Empathy

Blunted Senses

Pulverized by

Constant Stream

Of Everyday News of the World

Leave it to We Humans

To Perfect

the Art of Inhumanity

Faint Whispers to Deafening Shouts

Posted in Free Verse Poetry with tags , , , , , , on December 17, 2012 by lengesinski




As Sparks Transformed

to an All Consuming Inferno

Gradually Built Animosities

Built One by One by One-Thousand

The Day Came

Where The Accumulated Hammered Chiseled Bits

Widened Miscroscopic Cracks to Gaping Fissures

In the Broken Mind

A Deranged Person’s

Gunshots Rang Out

Leading to Massacre of Twenty-some

One Dark Friday


……Potential’s Unrealized

…….Smiles Left Etched in Memory Alone

………Questions Upon Questions

……..Spinning Rationalizations


No Answers

Yearnings(through Time)


Dream (Photo credit: noukorama)

Through Strained

and Teary Eyes

Two Pairs

of Outstretched Arms

Reaching and Stretching

Beyond Far Shores

Towards Each Other

Through Fogged Corridors

Of Many Eons

and Generations Past

Hints of

Mother Tongue

Pleasantly Foreign

To My Own Ears

Voices and Song

Wielkopolska Past

Dialects, Dreams, Allusions


Silent Understandings


Knowing Smiles

Finding Common Ground


The Ages

No Longer

Perfect Strangers

Ghost of the Present

Posted in Abstract Poetry with tags on December 3, 2012 by lengesinski

Ghost of the Present



Living Vicariously

Just Allowing

The Shadows to Pass

In Between Places


Hidden Regrets

Sounds from other Times

Past Places

As the

Sights Pass from Eyes

to Gray Hidden Places

Memories Off

Foggy Landscapes

Even Vaguer Recollections

Buried Deeper

Listed Between


Discerning Between

Realities and Fantasies

Mere Smoke and Ashes

Ghost of the Present© 2012 Leonard.C. Gesinski 12/03/2012
