Pasture

Post No. 856

Pasture

.

Useful up to a point

Then put out to pasture

Abandoned or sold for scrap

Rain-rusted tortured rotting

Buried in landfills or graves

Off with the old and on with the new

The motto of today implies

There’s a never-ending supply

Easy come easy go

Animal vegetable or mineral

Thirty pieces of silver should

Hold off the sheriff for a while…

Silver Fish

Post No. 855

Silver Fish

.

Flash of silver quick as lightning

Fleet of fin (ha) they catch a ride

On the backwash of each wave

Taking shelter behind cropped rocks

Knowing the music of the sea

Feeling the rhythm of the water

Breathing in, breathing out

Anticipating even the crabs’

Sideways stagger —

Silent hunters of the ocean floor —

Confident of the secret pathways

Shortcuts made to aid escape

Silence is Silver

.

Silence is silver,

Gold is too brash

As the sound of cymbals

Will clash in the silvery

Silence of the moon,

And soon you will hear

Silence breathe –

You can catch its breath

If you listen hard enough

And the breath of peace

Can cloak the world

If we only believe…
