Damaged

.

Silhouetted on the hill a hump,

a swollen chunk of detritus, wept  —

The smell assailed us long

Before we reached the dump.

Men and women dressed in rags

Scratched a living or a dying

Desperate like wild animals

Damaged by care-less-ness

Fouled dreams, failed chances

Used and abused by worldliness,

Heartlessness, perceptions changed,

Became infections,

Until they learned to hear and see

Differently from you and me —

Nonentities, expecting and receiving nothing.

Bully

Bully

.

Softly, slowly drawing strength,

Relying wholly on weakness seen,

Parasites steal the light,

Leaving only darkness after

Taking joy from others’ laughter,

Growing bigger, stronger, harder.

.

Cruelty, malice, hatred, spite

Flourish, but well out of sight,

Cunning, crafty as a fox,

Hiding under pleasantries

But dishing out his penalties,

Remedies for frailties.

City-life

Post No. 837

City-life

.

The smooth soothing hum

Of traffic through the suburbs

.           The lifeblood of evolution

.           All rushing to get things done

.

And everyone working to plan

An art-aerial view enabling all

Who follow the map to obey

.           The rules and not go beyond

.           The lines drawn on the road

White lines yellow lines

Broken lines and token lines

.

.           .           And heaven forbid a brake

.           .           Or jam— traffic sticking fast

.                       As long as it lasts

Fingers drumming on the wheel

.           And then it starts

.           BEEP-BEEP BEEP-BEEP

.           And the 4WD’s baritone

.           BOOB-BOOB BOOB-BOOB

.

Middle fingers waving

Open mouths silently yelling

(Aircon always too hot – or too cold)

.

.                       Hesitation or trepidation

.                       Cannot keep the meeting waiting…

Valley of Shadows

Valley of Shadows

.

Brighter light brings darker shadows

darker blacker at the corners of the world

map as it curls towards the warm

candle flickering on the saucer

dripping wax down its length

growing ever shorter—

time passes and the candle shrinks

back into itself while shadows lengthen

deepen as light fades—

and the candle breathes

its last

breath

.

*but the sun’s rays harnessed

trapped in an empty jar

leaves no use for candles any more

Dark Valley

Dark Valley

.

The sun shines brightly

On surrounding mountain tops

While down in the valley

Mist swirls patterns emerge

And darkness rules

.

Shards of pain pierce again

And again while lightning flashes

Thunder resounds from outcrops

As rocks parade their metallic

Makeup content as backdrops

.

To the display of higher power

Oh to rise high in the skies

Rest in the warmth of the Son

Away from the doom and gloom

And the worries of the world

.

Below

Look below the surface

Dig a little deeper

You may find a treasure

Invisible unseen

.

A maelstrom of wonder

Lies beneath our footprints

Where thoughts coalesce

Shifting into dreams

.

His-stories near and far

Gift-wrap for bidden

Eyes to see if broken

Pieces re-stored again

.
