Impressions Of A Smile

Impressions Of A Smile (Randyjw; September 4, 2017)

 

Love is blind. She cried.

with fingers pressed to my eyes…

my own starry night

Tree Monster Waving “Hi!”

Tree Monster Waving “Hi!” (Randyjw; September 3, 2017)

 

Once upon a time

in a land that wasn’t mine

I had a funny dream that made me start

The vision I could see

was something foreign as could be

for it came right from my mind and not my heart

But minds play funny gags

full of tricks right from the bags

you can buy in little shops right off the Ave

For I could swear I saw this tree

that was waving right at me

and that’s something no-one else had ever had

And there, right in plain sight

it was giving me a fright

this tree monster that was wildly waving its way

for I knew not how to read

if its leaves were rustling, “leave”

or if, instead, I should look how the tree did sway

Was it scary? Does it bite?

I know not its genus or type

But, I do know it makes shade that’s cool and dark

And I know G-d has plied His trade

in all good things that He has made

so, I guess the skin upon its trunk was just its bark

🙂

And I Too

 

And I, Too (Randyjw; September 3, 2017)

 

And I, too

have done so, too, dear

because of, and solely

by you

🙂

The Art of Creation

The Art of Creation (Randyjw; August 30, 2017)

 

The author raises his writing hand

flexgel poised, as if in thought

“What comes next,” he mutters;

“And is it parenthetical to the plot?”

 

The artist reviews the spaces

of the blank canvas he fills at-will

pondering with deep concentration

the emotional voids he’ll attempt to fill

 

The old scribe just recopies the story

he’s written many times before

His smile at the formulaic equation

has him beaming when he reads it once more

When the chapters of our lives

reach their final end

the greatest love story written

will have finally been

Balance

Balance (Randyjw; August 27, 2017)

 

The universe has a way

to carefully balance

what Man

tosses away

In Memoriam To Miss Pink Hair

In Memoriam To Miss Pink Hair (Randyjw; August 27, 2017)

 

Hypocritical it would seem

to sing your praises

and pass them on

When the same stood by

and denied you your song

that your soft voice was singing

all along

Too late — I’m sorry.
