Monday WRites 116


WHERE WORDS TRANSPORT
After checks and scans from security,
Welcoming doors test reading savvy,
Here; In is in and Out is out,
Of this there is no doubt

Climbing stairs not your delight?
Elevators will surly suffice,
Oh! but the coffee shop,
Skip in first and then go up

So many authors, affix a name
To hopes and dreams now ours to claim,
Lining shelf after shelf,
Passions and foibles give of itself,
So all the world could dream dreams,
Visiting faraway places in this scheme

And outside, an assemble of pannists,
There to give of their grandest,
A free concert will draw many,
Hips to sway on any given day.

edited to note: the building i wrote about is The National Library down town Port of Spain

Weekend Mini Challenge: Buildings
Kim who likes the way in which Philip Larkin’s poem The Building conveys the physical appearance and atmosphere of a hospital without once using the term ‘hospital’, through the use of certain words and connotations; has challenged us to write a new similar poem

[Phantom of the Opera Venetian Masquerade Mask from google dot com]

FOUR MOVEMENTS _ MASK
I
The mask shows
It tells
There's never the lie

II
A sinister power dared to show
The mask of soul allowed to agent

For too small is ego
And too large is spirit

Yet mask of go-between
Perfect in its application


III
Spa day, we peel and daub
In doll house feminine
Transforming stress to dust of dust


IV
Bigger than the phoenix
The fire risen in depths
Of passion
The phantom and the dance of life
Plays on

Monday WRites 115

MOSAIC BLUES
She wanders amongst lonely clouds,
Her shoes are prime stilleto blue,
A postcard away from gathering crowds,
Of this she is all for nought too new,

Even should a bird pause to listen,
Narry a song will be given to morning
Though sunlight to dew will glisten
Still to moon drops she be clinging.

MERGE
I
there's magic in my kitchen

as two sets of colours
food colours merge

the child understands
the merging delights her
another colour mix


II
this immersing and flowing

there is no loss
only merging [return]ing

maybe a return
to that oneness
that already was

GRACE TO LOVE
War and peace and
Wedged between, tempers of greed;
Boundaries and borders and
Staked to claim, loss of reason;
Bullets and bomb and
Laid to waste, blood and bones crushed;
Heartache and loss and
Equations unsolved, all to nought

War and peace and
Lessons unlearned, to heartbeat of repetition;
War and peace and
Prize of destruction wanton;
War and peace and
Anguish for light in shroud of darkness

War and peace
Oh that light should
Fathom the grace to love
Least war and peace
Be forever at loggerheads

Monday WRites 114

[image from google dot com]

UNFETTERED MOON
Indigo dream haunts turgid night
Clarion moon smiles her slim coy
In shadows then let pleasure abide
For too soon will night leave us

Serve jeweled kisses to love's banquet
A tad of wine will to passion behest
Least rainbow's wane be state of unicorn
Twinkle surely million stars be watchful

WISHES
On Undiscovered planetoid
Where Retirement dwells
With her friends, Solitude and Wisdom
There sits a treasure

Much like the box of dear old Pandora
Its locks are rusty
Its hinges will creak, surely if one dares
To open it without a wish

I wish for length of day
Syllables to swirl in light of awe
Health to manage newness
In fast-paced age of being.
