Steps along the way

Melbourne City, Australia

Melb lunch

 

Sunday lunch

within the alleyway

listening to the casual

sounds of mellow music

reminding me of past

experiences

 

Breathing the air around me

the scents bringing forth

childhood and adolescent

memories

permanently etched

from life with you

holding hands

whispering

“I love you daddy”

 

 

 

Revolutions

Endangered Cassowary, Etty Bay far Nth Qld, Australia

revolution

an elliptical course

perhaps of cryptic verse

returning to the original word

or

space, time continuum

with countless particles

orbiting within the rings of Saturn

you walk along your own

continuous pathway

forever searching

unable to change course

due to instinctive drive

automatically inherited

from ancestors

buried deep within the earth

walked upon

 

Conscious thought

Until you make the unconscious, conscious

It will direct your life

And you will call it fate.

Life after the storm

Twisted wwod.jpg

Unnaturally motivated currents of air

force life out of shape

 

Where they have inflicted their sadistic adventures of unknown proportion

 

Left in their wake –

frenzied, distorted images

flowing like cooled lava along the eerie carriageway

of destruction

 

Contorted objects that once stood erect

now strange

convoluted beautiful artworks

sharing intimate embraces

Memories of a friend never forgotten

Mural painted on hospice wall
cuddles

 

Once again

I feel your presence

a vibrant personality

 

creating another character

impersonating the lead

from a best selling novel

 

masquerading with symbols and lettered monogram

treading the boards

in flamboyant costume dress

reproducing a travesty

 

a grotesque representation of another life

a perversion exaggerated

for the created audience

the ending

 

a farewell

always returning

with no regrets

just dissatisfaction

and self-accusation

at being drawn into role playing

apprehensive

when questioned

 

keeping secrets hidden

between clouds

in nonfictional memories
