magnetic ~ a decima

Considering we’re poles apart

and yet together we’re great,

Why do opposites attract fate?

Definitely doesn’t seem smart

especially at every  start

squishing tightly, one negative

with one exultant positive

But somehow magnetic charm

amalgamates flower and thorn

And therefore in oneness we live

Time blanket ~ a quadrille

Time’s precision pendulum swings

lulling me into surrender

sweeping silly senses under

quilted blankets of beguiling

delusions of imaginings

cozily wrapped up in rainbows

warping Time through a window

into, over, future and pasts

stalling, staying, scuttling fast

TickTock TickTock. What’s fast? What’s slow?

ghost ~ a decima

So let’s say I die tomorrow

with my bucket list still unnotched

I’ll be so infuriated

I’d refuse to quietly go

And you won’t have to miss me so

I’d glow in the dark of your night

and scare all the others in sight

I’ll add a bit of scare and chill

I know you’d laugh and love me still

as ghost who can’t give you a fright

a protest poetry

My blood on your hands father

screaming in scarlet rage

inks today in red letter

crimson sacrilege

My blood on your tied hands mother

crusts, maroons you and me

and yet, we can protest

damn destiny

My blood on your hands Country

courses carmine in citizens

Will you stop the massacre?

your daughter asks

words ~ a tanka

playing hide and seek

thoughts and words giggle and weave

possibilities

pristine pearls of words line up

ardent thoughts stringing them through

In the end ~ a decima

We’re just a moment in the end

having played the cards we were dealt

with joy and grace and love we felt

as our time and space and life blend

and small voices in our heads wend

chanting I am a museum full of art,

and a deck full of music hearts

but is there someone who may think

of us, write and draw us in ink

and speak of moments we were part

Is it always me

sipping on fizzy iced dreams

while the world treadmills

seasons whizz past butter cups

warbling white eye drinks it in

enchanted ~ a decima

How far does optimism go?

Let’s find out…join me for the ride

coz only when you’re by my side

I see rainbows in tomorrows

ribbons of music tied with a bow

gifts of the yet undiscovered

lyrics to heydays up ahead

So string along your old guitar

Darling, let’s sing along with our

imaginings, stay enchanted…
