What Hour Is This?

What hour is this? So early!
A ruse to get me up
To think I am a Lark of sorts
That drinks from sunrise cup

That wakes me from the dreams I’ve had
That bids me see the day
Yet I for one am quite content
To hibernate away

And stay under the bed clothes
Snuggle in duvet’s plume
Desperate to grab those extra Zeds
Though bells ring through the room

For with the clash of hammers
That buzz from my alarm
The day bursts forth with fortitude
And loses any charm!

Age – A State of Mind

Age – a state of mind
To be embraced for sure
Reflecting who we really are
In mind and heart and more
That frees the soul, enlightens
Into maturity
Though let us not forget that we’re
Young in eternity

Cat’s Eyes

Cats eyes gleaming in the night
Like beacons;
Bright palates of mystery
Beaming out of the umbra
Reflecting the moon’s silvered light
Seeking, preying, spying
Ready to elicit nocturnal energy
To stalk and to hunt
Under the cover of darkness
Until the sun rises
And those eyes close
Lost in a furry visage
That lies curled up
Asleep
At rest for another day

What is Justice?

Is justice but a construct
Or a perspective?
A ruling maybe in the face of naivety
Or the foundation stone of truth?
Is it built on the footings of wealth
That damn the poor
Or still offer a bedrock of fairness
In a prejudicial world?
What is justice
Is it good, bad or indifferent?
Does it reside in impartiality?
Not anymore!

Gardening (Haiku)

Gard’ning breaks the back
Wrecks hands and nails but always
Makes hard work worthwhile

Industrial Ghosts

image

Chimneys smoking across the steel city
Where industrial ghosts of the past
Spiral heavenwards
In plumes from the remnant furnaces
Lingering in the ether
Smelting past memories
Smarting the landscape
Haunting the skyline
In whispers; in echoes of a bygone era

WOW!

Magnetic, resonating
Addictive, infectious gusto
Penetrating every bone
Seeping into every nook and cranny
Fervently eager
Passionately zealous
Abundant and energetic
Inspired, creative
Exciting!
Galvanizing the heart,
The mind
The spirit
With enthusiastic enthusiasm
WOW!
