Restless

restlessly
unsettled

disquietly
distressed

worrisomely
unhinged

desperately
deranged

restlessly transient
during a time of change

disquietly grieving
the familiar

worrisomely distracted
by the unknown

desperately interrupting
invalidated norms


dig deep
dig deeper
and at the core of fear
and in the heart of darkness
you will find your strength

Beltane

I can hear the blackbird call
Charcoal feathered bantam weight
And the cherry blossoms fall
Porcelain transparency

Spring air through a window pane
Broken by the passing time
In an attic on a farm
Echoes granny’s lullaby

Past and future meeting now
In this song carrying on
The blackbird though a different one
His melody unchanged

Memories of lilac scent
Purple iris added on
Suspended I am now–was then
Walking through the time beyond

Each note is a step I take
Each breeze is a breath
An image every memory makes
Until none is left

I am on my way back home
As the wind will blow
Gone the years and bleached the bones
What’s left is a wandering soul

Meandering Mind

My mind tumbles through the silence
The only noise
Wind
No cars
No planes

Even the birds are resting
Is everyone taken lunch time naps now?
Not even a lawn-mower
Which so viciously
Cut through the silence on Sunday

I had four coffees already
Yet tiredness becomes impossible to fight
Shall I sleep
Or do my one-a-day
Go out
Get moving
Keep moving

Keep living

Where did this come from
The living
Thing
Is movement life?
Is resting non-life?

Limbo
Life on hold?

What’s wrong with a nap anyway?

A car cuts through the silence after all
But wind swallowed the noise
And is taking over
The roof beams creak
Quietly though
As if aching with age
But trying to hide it

I should wash my face
And then let the wind
Blow away the cobwebs
Of my meandering mind
