Hush not a word

Knit one pearl one, She muttered, as the candles Danced and flickered. Click clack needle Seemed to dice with needle. Wool recedes as the bamboos twist and turn, Prodding with haste into ever deepest red. Fathers immersed in print.Head down out of harm,  Sheltering from her ordnance. No one dare speak a word, Hushed in the early spawns of night.

The ghost of Tobermurray

The first time we set eyes on Tobermurray We viewed you from the  window of a passing train My first and last on the iron road… You loomed large as we approached your derelict shell, Grass growing through the cracks of cobbles. People chatting gazing with amaze,  We sped through this vibrant homely place. It was as though we were

The Journey Is Long (Part III)

   I would wish for a light at the end of the tunnel but I can not find the tunnel. How will all of this turn out? So much evil and hatred broiling around beyond me; corrupting power clutched like a prize and not one ounce of fairness unfolding for the approaching mid-terms in 22 days. The rule seems to

Let’st run with the moon!Watch the sunlight on her face, See the reflection of her smile. I love the sparkle as your light hits the rain. Running hiding behind the cloud. Weaving, throwing shadows as you move. Using your power to rock the waves, Pushing the water to and fro! Forcing the tides to come and go Occasionally eclipsed by the

Like a silent soldier

Like a silent soldier I watched, I cared. You were all of my hearts desire. You took my breath, If I am true you still do! I look, I wonder. Long had I waited, Long have I wasted. Barren fields mimic me  Barren years lie ahead. Mixed emotions encroach my mind. Mind over matter they whisper. Some usher stay and

The tones of African light.

The tones of African lightThat split day from night. The vibrant hues spew In an instant, Glowing, almost volcanic, Glorious images, Changing, chasing with haste… Breath taking from Sunset to sunrise. Darkness falls  And pitches us in Deepest black. The stars only play  The merest part. A speckled black velvet sheet Cloaks our world until we wake.

I sit, I sup, I ponder.

A cafe to rest my weary torso, Weakened from the daily woes, Toils brewed and eased. Coffee eases the strain. It opens my train of thought. In voluntary isolation it remains apart! Deep within my own World. Away from speech,  My ears to choose. My muse in others words. What is spoken, What is heard  All at my beck and
