A Probing

         – held thought –

Old man sleeping – David Rijckaert 1612

A Probing

– held thought –

A probing
Held thought, 
That questions 
Ones own,
Be but of worth
Should it reflect,
That which 
Ye have sewn!

Butterflies

– by the bye

Not incidental
We butterflies,
Ever so gentle 
Yet by the bye,
As ornamental 
To  human eye, 
Will so trample
Reasoning why,
Be florae ample
Ye soon realize,
Holds butterfly
Reach to offer life,
Or graces the sky
As fitfully dancing,
Be fulfilling his bye
The while ambling by!

On The Run – from here to there –

On The Run

– from here to there –

Getting nowhere
In particular,
Holds baby bare
Not yet articular,
From here to there
Out of the picture,
Be on the run
In quest of a live future!

A Trio of Poetic Echoes…

Listen to audio

Frivolity

The commodify,

Of laisse faire  

Speaks of oddity,

To find fly an affair

Taken with frivolity!

Façade

You find look

Be oppression,

Beyond brook

Of expression,

Despite its façade

Charts blindly sad!

Conscience

You are aware,

Yet knowingly

Without care,

Tho insentience

Finds admittance,

Of a conscience!
