a poets playground

a unity of agreement

there was something
bothersome
couldn’t quite put a finger on it
clearly the colors didn’t blend
they bounced off one another
creating a wave of vertigo
sending all reeling
holding their heads
while looking away

look away

LOOK AWAY

deny that you saw

walk away

RUN

as

class

washed of color
not lost of light
grays sharpen
black defines
whites fade
discovering
one’s focus

uncover
the truth
that is lost
in the kaleidoscope of life
take away
the brilliance
the brightness
let
dullness unfold
revealing
a matte

stepping stones

what
what is blocking your way
what obstacle
won’t let you through

you’re only a stone’s
throw away
those obscure obstructions

it’s all in your mind
it’s all in your fears
that you might
not succeed

please
drop the excuses
drop the apologies
of

let’s be foolish

crazy
wacked
cracked
stupidly outrageous

who’s idea
was it
yours
hers
father times
mother’s wine

back-slapping silly

pour another glass
of that
belly laughing liquid

forget the toil & troubles
maybe
maybe

change – oh yes it will

reset
&
retune
let the baggage
and commotions
imbalances
and disharmony
of the past
be that
the past

flowing away
with the outgoing tide

energizing
under the full moon
breathing change
visualizing

flashback

a flashback

couldn’t be controlled

a remembrance
that was forgotten

a bolt
out of the dark
shook the surroundings

creating a clear and concise
image
of that long past place

a shocking sensation
snapping
a sense of realization
generating a vision

an unsettling crack
rang through
