Spring Sonnet 2.0

Piece by piece the season begins to shift
Blossoms appear upon a lonely tree
Days begin to stretch upon nights so swift
Sunlight lingers on everything I see

I start remembering the feel of heat
That leaves the icy cold wind in its wake
And with each new day in a sunlit street
We shed layers like the skin of a snake

I'm longing for the lengthening of days
The embracing sky of powdery blue
Bare branches once again hidden from gaze
And upon the ground is nothing but dew

As each new day begins springing alive
All around greens of nature once more thrive

Flip it
All that I say
Are words of truth
Believe me
Witness it with
Shock or awe
My right
To question
Alter perception
Flip it
My perception
Questions this truth
So bury it
Refuse to accept
A different truth
Now who is
The victim
Flip it...

Supple snow

The silken shawl of snow
Shimmers and burrows
Seeping into the curves
As light caresses you
Threads weep slowly
Then cascades into
Streams of glistening white

Talking about...

Talking across
A point
Circular and spiralling
Missing what is hidden
In the words

Reaching an agreement
Via misunderstanding
Nothing heard
A lot said

Upon a road

The soft touch of the breeze
Swirls under the blue
A mesh of white drifts
Upon the edges
As day fades
Flecks of light appear

Seeing shadows

Looking at the world
Through eyes seeing
Shades -
Shadow or light
Dancing across my eyes

I take a pause
Over thinking
- Pause  -
Change direction
- Well try to -
I take a moment
Shake my head
Sip my drink
Look out
Watch the world
The weather

This night

Imperfect perfection
Smooth satin sound
Slipping and swirling
Into my thoughts

Forgetting to breath
I drift then soar
Upon notes
That linger

Six words

Words spoken


Chiseled in stages
Shaped by time
Words spoken
Seeps into minds
Remembered in fragments
Blending into lives

Amongst ebbs and flows
A comforting light exists
Warming with its touch

Waves in the wind

Walking the promenade

Wind blows
Blasting specks
Swirling needles

Lines broken
With tracks of white
Greeny blues to
Shadows reaching
Breaking the surface
