Numbed

 

Hearing

          their

               own        

                     words

rehearsed and calculated

 

             playing to the crowds

 

emptiness

              has

                   it’s

                      own

                            sound

 

shallow thud

                                        echoed

 

promises

 

           and

 

matching smiles

                     with

                          all

                            the

                               warmth

plastic

 

and cold

           gravestones

 

 

people

         have long since 

                             become

                   numbers

mere statistics 

 

shake

        those

               hands

 

wave

      those

            flags

 

hold

     those

            babies

 

train             

     condition

                  desensitize

                                 blind

                                       deafen  

                                               divide

                                                     conquer

 

defeat

them

       

          young

                       on

Prosetry Fragments

 

Of his demeanor

stoic

in his words

wisdom

in his eyes

sorrow

the weight of experience

Poetic Fragments

 

humble start to the day

strong black coffee

birdsongs

five fluffy clouds

and Issa’s works to ponder

Poetic Fragments

a voice

in the wilderness

 

muffled

in an

anguished cacophony

 

an alternative

a middle ground

 

willing ears…and open minds

 

just waiting

for

 

consideration

                                time

                                                    chance

 

it still waits……

silhouetted

against this July moon

one

naked

Adieu

Posted in Free Verse with tags on June 30, 2015 by lengesinski

sunset

Adieu(Kim Oliver and Len Gesinski)

 

 

Transfixed

by the remainder

of your golden rays.

 

One last reach….to glory

through the trees,

heaven to my gaze even as you continue to fade

ever westward.

 

The clouds dance with you,

creating art that is unsurpassed

by human hands.

 

I am awed by your splendor

as a chill a chill caresses the skin

so recently kissed

by you.

 

Birdlike shadows

quickly cross this majestic sky,

their cue to roost

if only for a few precious moments.

 

Second by second

you continue to fall,

until our shadows

are no more.

 

Yet, I remain transfixed

by just a hint

of your magnificence.

 

No simple humbling

                  My eyes lower…

                       My voice quiet…

 

This moment

                      frozen

 

No words are necessary

 

……transcendence.

Poetic Fragments

piercing this morning’s silence

an orphan’s cry
