A Bridge

– by the way home –

Le Pont du Diable… The Devil’s Bridge… Fr.

A Bridge

– by the way home –

I’ve long roamed
Where gods play,
Enchanting Rome 
To Tuscany’s day,
By the way home...

I hold the memory
Of insistent places,
Has ye transformed
Afore its life passes, 
Find a bridge known,
As by the way home!

The Day

– that was –

Listen to audio

The Day                 

       – that was –

The day
Set as was,
Did have a play
Despite faux pas,
Would find a way
Bearing the cause,
Of one’s living stay
Thus, to make room,
For a fated new day
Fixed next to come,
And find its allay
Hence while alone,
Will not be at bay
Tho set afar home,
Holds shy of say
Had need to roam,
Implied being alive
For allotted time,
Be ne’er very long
Ye will soon find, 
The day long gone
Next to be, that was!

“ The Last Train ” – may have gone –

“ The Last Train ” – may have gone –

I’d bought in too

A youth’s fallacy,

Ye want find true

Save failed to see,

Fate shan’t renew

A life forever be,

Tho we continue

Frivolously free,

To ponder pursue

And endlessly roam,

Tho state of askew

Too far from home,

Long past ye renew

Will find one alone,

When the last train

Now may have gone!

“ The Journey Home ” ~ waiting in the follows ~

He’d long gone,

She so longed,

Both waiting

In the follows

Of their passion,

Living in a limbo

Of yearning love,

As from the sonset

Be as if time froze,

Wanting but a sign

That destiny impose,

Love be meant find

The journey home!
