  237.     

Fools

Let us go –
Not unto the wilderness
Or to climb interminability,
But on towards the overgrown paths
Of random drifts
Burning blood that courses thro’ our minds

Perhaps we’ll up and leave atop a cumulus
Ha! The fading dawn of lies
Betrays the dinosaurian happiness –
Yes, we bloomed upon a time
Rolling out our possibilities,
Naivety the undertones

And as we fall –
No need for us to shy away from images
Of nakedness caressing inner tones of skin
Atop your sheets, calculating rhythms
For the climax, coming for the come –
You can’t deny
We were;

Pray! rejoice the times
We bore the senselessness
Of circumstantial romance
In readiness for marriage in our dreams

Do not fade in curses,
Greys,
Or any other asymptotes,
For I loved you,
I truly
Did,
Do –
And ever shall your searching eyes,
Limpid in reflection

We fools,
Rejected by our fate,
Struggle on

But worry not,
I have a song

  238.     

For Kipling!

I love those classical Kipling lines,
Bouncing, dancing off the page
In rhythm and rhyme – and all in time -
Inviting us all to thus engage

His flow of genius pure and blessed
In tales of life so riddled with grit,
And bearing souls with words possessed
With all the Master's heav'nly wit!

Friendship Stays Beside You

Friendship turned and spoke to me:
'Always I'll be there;
Never mind the fretting or the woes,
Nay, tell! - be you in the doldrums, deep of Hell,
Or any other dire straights my friend;
For you, I stood here ever at your side
From distant time to now, the bitter end.'

Goodbye

O Fate, don't stare – I need some air,
I'll call for Luck, who's never there!
But Hope, I hope, might turn up soon -
Though that I doubt – there's no Blue Moon.

So Faith perhaps, the final straw
Might rescue me from Reaper's door!
My visage worn, I've one last sigh –
For now He calls for me…

Goodbye.
