Love (Five)

Love (Five) (Randyjw; August 9, 2017)

 

Silent nuances in the recesses of my heart

whispered words said alone in the dark

for not in vain were these feelings fraught

nor script to follow through which it aught

by doleful sigh be brought to naught

the hidden treasure never bought

Butterfly

Butterfly (Randyjw; August 7, 2017)

 

Some things

as elusive as the butterfly

were never meant to be captured

but, instead given wings

Some tears

that find their way to a fall

are expressions of happiness

not of sadness, at all

Some smiles

can paper over halves that should be whole

My butterfly net

is full of holes

but I hope to catch one, yet

Certain Only Of Uncertainty

Certain Only Of Uncertainty (Randyjw; August 5, 2017)

 

If the road to h***

so long ago

was paved

with good intent

then each piece

my heart

were pavers

each fork

in roads

that bent

They were set

on stones of offer

for those who’d

walk its road

tho’ where the

others wavered

the paths

once past

unfold

the present

predicts no future

It only knows

past and now

if you only knew

and had a clue

then it would

let you know

somehow

Still Know

Still Know (Randyjw; July 27, 2017)

 

Tell me of your home;

of the child you were

and the places you roamed

 

Let me know

of the lessons you learned

imparted to youth

which the old ones would tell

 

stories regaled

in the tales of the bold

The pieces you kept

at heart’s depth in each fold

 

and what was left

coming into your own

 

I want to know…

Of Dusk And Us

Of Dusk And Us (Randyjw; July 23, 2017)

 

I see you

standing there

at the balustrade,

arms crossed,

Awaiting again

for love to remain – –

Not the bittersweet loss

that already came…

But the one that will stay

Like the bright light

of the eternal flame

that I hold in my heart

and need release just the same

but, can still

never can

Crossings

Crossings (Randyjw: July 19, 2017)

 

Paths cross in events

that are always fateful;

Sometimes they’re hopeful —

at other times, fatal.

 

We might feel invisible…

take them for attractions,

deem those fixations,

absorbing distractions.

 

Both hands and fingers

also do sometimes cross:

that what often lingers

is never lost

Love (Four)

Love (Four) (Randyjw; July 15, 2017)

 

For you I hope

all the best in life

children, and home,

a loving wife

Someone to hold you

and someone who cares

someone that’ll love you

who’ll always be there

For these you deserve

and I hope G-d agrees

happiness He’ll serve

to grant you all these
