Imagine

Imagine the sweetest smelling honey.
The fragrance tantalises.
A memory of blossom from childhood; abuzz with innumerable bees.

Now imagine a multitude of waxy cream loops, erupting around spikes.
Together, forming a cascade of frothy spears, swaying in the Summer breeze.
A scent of heavenly honey with an indeterminable flower aroma engulfs.

Wishing my readers a safe, healthy, and prosperous 2021.

Contrast

Expectations, unheard, unwritten, not agreed, lead to disappointment.

Frustration from despondency could result in an outpouring or inner turmoil.

Assumptions can conflict create or do secrets forge, limiting authenticity.

Living as a liar may rebellion incite or self-loathing and self-destruction result.

Drain anew

Davy‘s grey clouds threaten
Gloom inducing doom chills
Darkening the soulful

Deluge then droplets drip
Dismal dampness pervades
Downcast delusions dwell

Monochrome maudlin
Doldrums drain energy
Sunshine invigorates

Why?

Fruitful or less service to universe, race, self?

Resources used wisely or squandered?

Desultory paths wandered with intent or not?

Sands silently stop

Waiting for the all encompassing corruption, subsumption

Contributions ultimately forgotten or turn to dust

Future kind dig, discover, analyse remains

Content of past lives being hypothesised

Perché, pam, why?

Ab-usual un-normal

Deep blue sky unmarked by cloud or objects high

Longest shadows cast low upon journey’s path

Soul chilling clamminess battles warming morning

Lively zombies walking jogging ambling waving

Covid-19 avoidance strategies employed

Brazen blooms bounce in the gentle breeze

Poincianas advance into skeletal slumber

Dew laden blades tightly packed unmoving

Noisy silence interspersed with staccato birdsong trilling

Strangeness of feeling being part of the ab-usual un-normal

Temporary

Temporary

Having more than the average, five;

Projects ones thoughts into longer term.

Drawing out syllables, rhyming parts:

‘Temp – Schemmp’, ‘por – more’, and ‘rary – praery’.

Magically feeding self-denial.

A state of mind, as well known as the,

Skittish nature of often absent,

Fleeting muse. One certainty, in time,

All things good, bad, indifferent shall pass.

Darkness shining through

Beneath bright golden veneer of respectability;

Strong sense of black and white, right and wrong.

Consistently, calmly, controlling, checks and balances.

Within an organised mind of professional standing;

Team player, relationship builder, extraordinaire.

Seriously, delivering on goals for stakeholders, all.

Now and then, chink appears.

Mischievous smile, reveals;

The darkness shining through.

Framed post

In this age of unreal digitalis,

Two species; dead and alive.

Overlaid in unintentional way.

For this, homeward traveller,

One missed heartbeat of joy. In the moment,

He returns to capture it.

Post or pole, what are the definitions?

Stirring thoughts, connotations.

Is height a factor to be considered?

Vertical ground bound, are posts.

T’other hang angled; online truth obtained.

Garlanded or wreathed by leaves?

Both appear to suit this situation.

As with notice, frame seems best.

Insta or blog worthy? Driven by will,

This inspired author conjures

Prose. Ten, seven rythmn, no rhyming here.

End in sight; high time to close!
