fragments linger

fragments linger

 

The summer folds. Light fades

All those tourists. Now, office bound

So the to and fro of carefree feet

Are roosting. Anticipating change

Culture, fun and sun

The extremities that leisure permits

Will be put away until the pot

Permits another jaunt

Another tilt toward the far-side

Where mind, memory and hope

Are teased by vainglorious innocence

Force us in our fidgeting existence

To run risks with charlatans

And have our hard won dreams

Run aground and ruined

Or, and with this hope we persist

Our time abroad

Leaves a glow. A welcome stain

To carry home

And hope that there is more

To squeeze from the tube

Marked FUN

Go lightly

Image

Go lightly

 

It rained last night

How kind

The soak of heaven

 

A bright morning greets

The sleepy witness

With a chorus from happy lawns

 

This has been a summer treat

We love that

The gift of the freely given

 

Comforting sounds, like ornaments

Going gently in the dark

Are a soothing presence

 

Then soft light and fresh smells

A chorus of hope

Opens its arms

 

The new day is simple

A great yawning element

To fill

Hallo again

Hallo again copy

 

Words make flesh of thought

For simmering resentment and joy

Can find a voice

On the back of such a flash

 

Returning to the light

From the dark embrace of night

On eyes that have been off-guard

Might shock or disappoint

 

The commonplace repeated is comfort

To a timid soul

But the shadowy mix of ignorance

Will not spare a sleeping mind

 

The futures’ touch

Might shiver like prediction

In a doubtful space, so

Let hope put a blanket around doubt
