Senryu

 

her goals-so humble

taking this life day-by-day

age eighty comes soon…..

Poetic Fragments

 

Millions of voices

still

crying out

through the expanse

of time

 

Never Again…..

Never Again…..

Never Again……

 

Old pictures

so many

faces

staring

 

through

those eyes

a

harsh…cruel

reality

 

a place

where

life

was

taken, stopped, stolen

 

fences

buildings

railroad tracks

 

still there

 

but

even the ground

must still

cry

out

 

Never Again…..

Never Again…..

Never Again……

Bits and Strands

Bits and Strands

 

These

cold winter months

we walked these streets

while the winter sun

still warmed our backs

as we bravely

faced midnight

while many dreams

never have come true

we still searched..in vain

for those retrospective

parts

stubbornly young

but

in chasing

a fountain of youth

a litany of fortunes,

foibles…. fables

tales

that only lead

to more woe

inevitably

as the mourners continued

to fill

these empty spaces

rows of seats

…this modern day

den of inequity

lines of

sullied consciences

their blackened souls

the

concrete roads

that still await

our footprints

counting the discarded

flower blossoms

…yesterdays glories

we’ll search tomorrow

and tomorrow’s tomorrow

with life as a Blake’s hitch

while

infinity’s grip

continues to tighten

all the while

with our dead man

smiles

greeting the foolish scrounger

welcome!

you are free

to reach

for this

bit

of

corroding

bit of hope

promises…..further…..

ever

decaying

their messages…necrotic flesh

the

mixed signals

gradually

narrow

this being

just what an empty reflection

resembles

while

other

echoes….voicings

fall further and further….further…..further

back and into the shadows

till there is

….no light

….no spark

Poetic Fragments

 

For a friend from work……

 

Cancer came quick…furiously

cures were tried

but, to no avail……

 

Your cubicle at work

now stands still

time and family events….pictorally frozen in place

 

Evidence

little monuments, to your life…..and loves

hang for the time….as evidence

 

Certain things

cannot ever be replaced

your smile, humour, banter, dialog, experience…..and presence

 

will always be missed……

 

Goodbye C.B.

 

And may his memory be a blessing…..
