SLENDER TIME

Slender time
such silk!
A memory
slips-do
and life
slender too!

THE ILLUSION

time, that illusion
it’s cousin – motion
neither exists
beyond human eyes
— all is static
never changing
just a unified field
expanding
contracting
and universal
consciousness
watching rapid flickers
of death-rebirth

A CASUAL STROLL

I marched in place
of Father Time
This did I
for me and you
That he would run
is not like me
A casual stroll for all
toward Eternity

HARBINGER DELIVER

Oh my Father did not you hear me!
that day I was born a harbinger
for the words I spoke were a cry
and emotions, high as love, joy,
fear, and pain visited that night
this day again, those friends of my
first-day arrive —
Oh, cry I do!
but more a machine-drive
for all my tears have dried
and so my love and joy
but fear and pain —
never relinquish their place

TIME MARCHED BACKWARDS

MY life passed me by
backwards it walked  
never looking behind

I knew it’s path before
to follow was my desire
but time restrained myself

A witness was all my role
to see mistakes, nothing more
the reversal of misfortune
a pittance of late wisdom

OUT THE WINDOW

That easy rhythmic sound is what i need,

a swing beat in jazz to touch and feel.

So I do my best to stay one foot ahead

of those lazy-crazy slices of falling time

of which some are stuck in the inferno trees

outside my window. A hellish wind fans them

but I rely upon Count Basie to sooth it all out

and I won’t look out the window anymore.

FEAR & TIME

so queer that fear
can stretch out time
a stitch in mind
the needle pierce
what eternity avoids
we carry for life
