Prosetry Fragments

early

winter morning

the quiet avenue

awaits

only

the

bustle, life, sounds, smells, and promise

of

the

coming day

This world outside

seems intent to self destruct

……what part did I play?

Mishigami(Great Water)

 

Green and Blue

Grand swells of the lake, such a deceptive beauty 

How many mysteries do your waters hold?

 

Giving no quarter

How many a skilled mariner’s vessel adorn thine murky bottom?

Price paid in full for braving her storms and squalls

Lilacia Park 048

 Lilacia Park Poems(Miscellaneous Scribbles and Ramblings)

A-

Bright little petals

all reaching out to blue sky

tomorrow’s promise

 

B-

Church bells rang on…on

somber faced patrons marching

when’s the funeral?

 

C-

Yesterday’s soldier

sky, moon, stars, and clouds above

this bench, his abode

when can he ever know peace?

when can his dreams be silenced?

 

D-

Bumping into friends

No longer cyber figments

…..a real voice….gasp!

 

E-

Those eyes, those hardships

roads wind hither and tither

lonely the miles…..his shoes

 

F-

This summer morning

sunshine

birdsongs

a book of Basho, Issa, and Buson!

I smile

 

(G)

Buzzing dragonflies

such circuitous pathways!

this Sunday morning

 

(H)

Up high, a stone perch

yet another dragonfly

mute acknowledgment

 

(I)

Unseen scamperings

this stone perch above the park

Ahhhhhh, chipmunk!

 

(J)

In a note book

She scribbles

on and on

her smile brightens

A Moment’s Kiss

A Moment’s Kiss

 

Hesitation’s pause

 seconds 

like longest hours

chances

there for the taking

but for an ever twirling dance

…uncertainty’s cold paralysis

 indecision

lost moments

 …ticking off

never once halted

time’s staid guardianship

 

alas,

 

the plane of indecision is broken

 

this, the first of many

 

stolen moments

Chasm

Posted in Uncategorized on May 24, 2015 by lengesinski

One of three pieces that I read at an Open Mic Event at Frugal Muse(05/20/2015). http://www.frugalmusebooks.com/

Chasm

 

praying

for eyesight          to the blind

and

already wounded

                  so far down               

 on their luck…circumstances

but robbed

right

before

own……all…… of our eyes

gone well before

most would even

                 thought                

to have looked

deadened hearing

for ears………already trained

not to hear…wanting to hear

voices

calling……pleading……wanting…..needing

eyes          only trained

not to see……..the pained

selves        

conditioned…..hardened…..desensitized

no longer……able? wanting?

or……simply care

empathy

imperceptible…….invisible

conspicuously silent

silenced?

modern day……. robber barons

thieves

ever quick to blame

pointing……away from

themselves

heaping scorn

upon

poor…….destitute

stealing……..lining pockets

but….

how long?

till the many……faces

of poverty

hellbent

on vengeance

burning holes

in thoughts…..pained memories

will

eventually

show no quarter

 

can there then be any evidence, any hinted whisper of mercy expected?

 

suppressed

so far down

into the depths

only

giving back

what they were always…
