Those Moods
      - a state of mind -
At times bemused,
To find thy mood
More so confused,
Be cause to brood
Wouldst so define, 
As to misconstrue
A state of mind !

“ A Dupery’s Game ”

– of nebulous task –

Though we endure
Time passing fast,                                                       
Ne'er to be sure
The while it lasts, 
We accept its lure 
Without we so ask,
Be less than assured 
With time fixed mask,
Holds a dupery‘s game
Cast be of nebulous task!  
 
                                  The gift of unapprised choices...

“ Foretelling ” – the morrows –

Listen to audio

“ Foretelling ”

       – the morrows –

 If I should teetotal
 As teetotallers can,
 Past state of foetal
 Seems I ought plan,
 Thus so I’d be able 
 Find tassology span,
 To embrace foretell
 Alleged likely future,
 For tea leafers spell
 The lot beyond lore,
 Want players to tell
 Held maybe in store
 Asserts it holds well
 Bar clichéd kept lies,
 With cross my heart
 That you’d hope die,
 Cues lacking the part
 Threatens one’s dream,
 Save a rather vague seed
 Has foretelling tea leaves,
 What the morrows will mean!

“ Today ” – a gift –

Listen to audio

“ Today ”

– a gift –

 I am alive
 Today,
 The gods provide
 Another day, 
 Thus be a gift
 To find its way,
 As they so deemed
 That I might stay,
 Be not a dream
 For on this day,
 Again it seems
 I am alive,
 Tho by all means
 Perhaps again, 
 Yet be but for today!

“ The Little Red House ” – on the corner –

Listen to audio





“ The Little Red House ”

– on the corner –


 The fairy tale picture
 Of its little red house,
 Sitting on the corner
 Sure lure for a mouse,
 Or little Jack Horner
 Ye find eating his pie,
 Holds be a reminder 
 The while we walk by,
 Tho soon we be older
 Can but wonder why,
 Be the little red house
 That sits on a corner,
 Seems ever so ageless
 Lends we reminisce,  
 Shoulder to shoulder
 Share memory’s bliss,
 Each day walking by
 As we pass the corner,
 Of that little red house!

“ Conversations ” – with me, myself and I –

LISTEN TO AUDIO

“ Conversations ”

– with me, myself and I –





I am curiously held aware,

Being conscious of converse

That it’s natural to beware,

In an age amorally perverse

Where humankind despairs,

Of conversations so adverse

Suggesting interest to be fair,

Yet holds intent to be averse…





Tho it be of and by myself

I fancied be a person free,

That which finds dominate

A better part of early me,

That ideates a perfect fate

To fill the emptiness I see,

In dreams imaging awake

Conversely so I want to flee…





A time knew of not be fast

Nor forcing to make haste,

Or find way to further last

In concert with moral taste,

Whose worth wouldst cast

The value of contented state,

While forgetting not the past

To help shape avert mistakes,

In conversations that will task

Beyond with me, myself and I!
