Full

Full (Randyjw; July 21, 2018)

 

You’ve filled my heart

shared expansive horizons

brought tenderness back in my life

You left interpretation open

to extract what I want

a perfect relationship found me

And lines to read between

and dreams to remake

the nuance of meaning

through mindscapes you paint

Through song and words once spoken

I’d keep on searching still

Wide open and unbroken

because you’ve left it full

 


 

Warning:

Discordant, jarring song choice,

but one I used to like:

Harmony

Harmony (Randyjw; July 20, 2018)

 

Striking the right chords

Like heaven to the seventh

Notes of one accord

What Of Now

What Of Now (Randyjw; July 20, 2018)

 

Do you dream of a future

as yet to unfold

For, this I would like to know

Yesterday I lived a day ago

Right now is all I can hold

Keep Warm

 

Keep Warm (Randyjw; July 11, 2018)

 

The dark space

enclosed by the closet

for your coat

the hanger just dangling there

devoid of its soul

Restless Grey Matter

Restless Grey Matter (Randyjw; July 11, 2018)

 

I miss smoking

I miss smoking and poetry

and when you’re not around

I miss the urgency of the thought

the adrenaline-propelling acts

of living dangerously, dramatically

expending all that I’ve got

and the pivot of the fulcrum

teetering toward the side

of where I’m not

The time warp

where the world just stops

and the arms reach out

taking in vagrants

and fragrance

the carouselled stallion

flies off of its mount

How a grey day filled with rain

looks from the inside

the sheafs of papers

and the sweep of ashes

as they fall, non-committal-like

by the ashtray- and feature-less wayside

To seek vibrations in the water

the rippling undercurrents

with their possibly frightening and existential monsters

Enjoying it and living it

conjuring it, envisioning it

before some heedless reason

or aught reckless diversion

compels one or another

to ending it, mid-season

Language And Thought

Language And Thought (Randyjw; June 22, 2018)

 

Energy of thoughts

in recognizable language,

transformed into binary data,

so easily read.

 

The generation of this independent process,

to begin with, though,

an act of G-d

inside our heads.
