Sunday poems…

…A stream of poems from the world as I see it, through the kaleidoscope of mind, out via the keyboard to wash up here. None took longer than 30 seconds to write, but I hope that spontaneity results in instinctive, enjoyable pieces.

Simple thoughts,

A pebble dropped in misty rain,

What ripples will it raise?

Old friends walking,

Old friends talking out the world while the trees look on,

And the wind paints its thoughts on a cloudy sky

Creativity: a simple thing

Not giving a shit,

But not caring isn’t the answer

Pace of a sparrow,

Skimming over what bloom the earth provides or doesn’t,

Confident the air will always hold him high

The stream bubbles and brews behind rocks,

Like a wild thing trapped,

But if it were still we’d never hear it,

Nor marvel at its tumultuous peace

The pen tracks its spidery path,

Not clean, not pure, no knowledge of where it’s been before,

No more instinctive than water following a path in the dust,

It’s all been done before,

But never like this

Enough, enough,

I’ve surprised the guard at the gate,

And the floodgates are open,

These words my tears of joy,

But even joy can kill,

When it chokes all else,

Enough, enough

Looking out I am blind,

Only the eye that turns inwards,

Into and through the mirror of subjective self,

Sees the truth

Lazy day, lazy thoughts,

Limbs like treacle,

Sticky and sweet the last day,

Before work
