Inside Out

sonnet #12
inside out


i was indifferent to my being,
used myself as just a thing, a stranger;
me, a species of the genus “caring”,
my own guardian, a deranged lone ranger!

told i must see from the inside, myself,
to know how I appeared from the outside;
must learn to feel at one with this good “self”,
not estranged and cut off, blown off-side!

if i related to you as that self,
oh dear! God help you! i was truly stuffed!
but i learned to care for that guy, myself,
damn! doing so, the caring became shared!

now i have friends who think me worth knowing,
and we’ve sown seeds that will keep us growing.

Thoughts in the style of Pope

Sonnet #16
thoughts in the style of pope

i know how little can be known
i see all others’ faults and feel my own;
my own strange purpose to find
or make an enemy of mankind?

why is the external for that internal given?
am i not a God and earth my only heaven?
i, a virtuous son, am ill at ease
the lustful “Father” gave me a dire disease.

distracted by what others feel, what others think,
all pleasures sicken, all triumphs sink;
my right too rigid hardens into wrong
for the strong too weak, for the weak too strong.

all forms that die, other forms supply,
so i can catch that final breath, and die.

On the Deck

sonnet #18
on the deck

i sit in silence on the deck at night
and look into the gloom. the low winds utter
low sighing sounds. along the horizon’s height
the mountains rise darkly in the waning light;
within the house, behind a wind-blown shutter,
a flickering light burns, and white moths flutter
against the casement in their blundering flight.

attracted by the glow of brighter lamps,
the younger guys have left me with my ‘pipe’,
listening to the wind and crickets call.
i only think: the sun has dried my cramps,
the mist will touch the morn, the time is ripe
and in the sky, the stars begin to fall.

Greatness Overflowed

Many many moons ago
A great Poet and Artist
Italian - Michelangelo
Mastered the Sonnet
And the Madrigal,
Composing them for his Rose
Vittoria Colonna... whose
Aura of magic still glows.

Artistic achievements
remain high within glory.
'The Last Judgment Painting'
Reflects his holiest story.
Having lived a long life
Poems and sculptures were rife
For interested tourists to view.
A pleasure for the literary few.
 
Joyce Hemsley
