Escaping the Abyss

Post No. 904


Escaping the Abyss


A bottomless pit

Is where I’m at

A deep well leading down to hell

I claw feverishly at the wall

And cry for help with a soundless voice

Bounded by silence

Black as pitch, absorbent hush

Rain runs barefoot down my neck

Soothing all pain along my back

I feel fingers reach down my arm

Leading me, guiding me

Upward, onward, safely

Far, far away from harm

Pigeon Pair

Pigeon Pair

Pigeon Pair

Pigeon Pair

Is it true that birds mate for life
one mate, one life…
pigeons have always fascinated me
their antics captivated me
such variations in colour
but they often seem to choose
a mirror image of themselves
with a one-time exception that i saw
one black and one white (part fantail)
always together ~ no interest in another
black so attentive, captivated
intrigued, mesmerised, hypnotised
grooming her endlessly
they were seen each day for weeks
constant companions
and then they were gone
unseen for more than a year
I wonder where…

Black & White

Blinds (pun intended)

(pun intended)


This was written just after Turning the Tide.

Black & White

Black and white
Shadows and light
The colours of night
Contrasting shades
Opposing views
Conflicting ideas
Divergent beliefs
But if you consider

They are us
And we are they
All mixed up
In many ways
Even piano keys
Need each other
Can we not learn
To live together

Black Velvet *New


In the black velvet night

Stars look ultra bright

No moon in the sky

Just you and I



Under the canopy of light

Facing t’wards the east


For the first rays of the sun

A new day has begun

A new world still to come


Must have been a ‘bug’ – Sorry!
