and daydreams

-basho’s frog does not interrupt

funeral procession

another pair of sneakers

hangs from 

the

Poetic Fragments

 

unrequited

a white rose

stands sentinel atop

an

empty table

Poetic Fragments

even the paint

on the old war horse

…..slow to fade

winter wind

whisking

away

bits and pieces

of

yesterday’s dreams

Poetic Fragments

 

Those precious moments

quivers

ripples

in this massive pool

this seemingly flat

blue

stilled surface

time

countless

these precious

memories

so few

from

clearest colour,

sharpest details

to those in faded blurry grays

details rubbed flat clean

those memories…

life experiences…

smiles…

joys…

triumphs…

hurts….

and pain…

one no greater

than the other

in the larger

scheme

of things

this massive collective

…..life

 

I am reminded of how short

55 years really is.

 

You will be missed…..

 Goodbye dear friend….

Captured

prize

thing

object

marginalized

imprisoned

feared

teased

 

this,

 

my home….my prison

 

once

this hunter became

the hunted

 

fate sealed

 

inside,

looking out

my story alone

but….

 not where it all started

 

not

where it was all ever meant to be

 

but always,

so many eyes

staring

 

only the night

brings about

temporary peace

 

only to have the day

start

over….over….over

but,

you cannot ever really know me

 

truly know

how and what

makes me

tick

 

can you ever

really

 

know

 

how it feels?

 

these walls

these bars

 

these years

 

rage

wild impulse

 

so far

 

deep

 

inside

 

but

lessons still have not been

learned

 

 

1914….2014

 

how time does indeed rush by

 

but not all things

 

change

 

life is life is life is life

The Bitter End(Magog)

Posted in Free Verse Poetry with tags , , on April 29, 2014 by lengesinski

The Bitter End(Magog)

 

I may not see tomorrow

nor care to witness…..all the complete woe

hear the cries….and moans

of all…that might be left

the tormented, tortured, discarded…and damned

rivers of filth…..our own toxic concoctions

oceans of garbage…debris…indifference

once proof of our existence…..our not caring

beginnings…origins

such trails of despair……despoliation

barren trees……bare arms reaching

futilely….to skies…

billowing toxic clouds

burning our lungs…tortured last breaths

the remaining faces…..gaunt…gasping

eyes widened…..looking through…beyond

minds maddened

unable to discern

what now….is reality…or madness

souls blackened

the last vestiges of humanity

completely scoured……free?

litany……voices……chorus

still asking…why?…how?

steadily….and all along

from the first stone thrown

to now, these smoldering lands…as far as the eye can see

pooled with blood……once our own

the stench of death……sickly sweet decay

a return of sorts

to these killing fields…this battlefield earth

our permanent scarring

this certainly will be…..the last time?

our bloodthirst…finally complete?

Wanderlust(of sorts)

Posted in Free Verse Poetry with tags on April 22, 2014 by lengesinski

Wanderlust(of sorts)

 

Eyes

to the heavens above

finding

imagination….inspiration

daring

only,

as far as there is sky above

only,

as many as there are grains of sand

all this land

waiting underfoot

for just the right soul

many endless….limitless

wanderings….directions

only as much 

as self will

allow
