ask not for summer
let the seasons run their course
Record changing light

Monday, May 30, 2011

bubbling jitters
roaring stark in my mind's ear
hullabaloo blood
heart thump, screaming reds
the yammer and the swirling
panic attack shriek
slice and dice, drip drip
blood flow spatter suicide
bathroom red sprinkles

Sunday, May 29, 2011

blood flows through my veins
oxygenated fluid
5 litres circles

Saturday, May 28, 2011

sitting in the cave
watching shadows on the wall
language and ideas

Friday, May 27, 2011

I swim in language
I lack gills to breathe the words
I dive and struggle
I swim in language
it ripples across my skin
talk, books - swirling words
sing of the tiger
my father, sunset
listen to the song
in my dream you were asleep
the river, the sky
return to a book
revisit forgotten words
gentle balloon ride

Thursday, May 26, 2011

gaze into the fire
and feel the waves wash your skin's
blood to the surface

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

the promise of wine
seductive sunlight captured
fruit scintillation

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

the laughter of ants
forging foraging scent trails
forest social nest

Monday, May 23, 2011

the blue/green dragon
the slayer of delusion
Spring rain Acala

Acala is linked to dragons via Kurikara

Sunday, May 22, 2011

the violent eyes
psychosis acid and spit
mirror fragments

Saturday, May 21, 2011

my heart skips a beat
I see a picture of you
another sand grain

Friday, May 20, 2011

the cuisine of peace
simmer friendship, splash of wine,
knead garden - enjoy

Thursday, May 19, 2011

burgers on the grill
sound of metal expanding
glamorous supper

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

the scarlet dragon
the teeth that rip the hanged flesh
carnivorous silk

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

the tangents of thought
peel a river, upwards rain
light dance, oxbow lake

Monday, May 16, 2011

a thimble of time
looking at the summer stars
by the campsite fire

Sunday, May 15, 2011

the white noise midnight
the swish and swirl alcohol
porcelain shards

Saturday, May 14, 2011

chasm between us
indifference and silence
I rot - glass fragments

Friday, May 13, 2011

the ebb tide pulls me
I drift out to sea alone
raft to the wide world

Thursday, May 12, 2011

the scaffolding stands
and waits by the path, I see
the darkness in silk

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

the fledgeling poet
haiku in the Twitter age
counting syllables

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

ageing aches and pains
bad posture for years payday
middle age belly
the signs of mortality
one day, today, will seem young

Monday, May 9, 2011

bags of rotting food
milk so old it's gone solid
childhood memories

Sunday, May 8, 2011

the bonding and glue
renewal of acquaintance
feed the routes for growth

(note:- i did mean routes not roots
as in the routes of communication, the roads)

Saturday, May 7, 2011

uncurl like a frond
the medication eases
the chisel edges

Friday, May 6, 2011

the sword sleeps in peace
salute the unknown soldier
waiting for Arthur

Thursday, May 5, 2011

civil war, no blood,
civilized conflict
fighting with words - votes

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

the cat on the wall
soaking up the spring sunshine
last year's leaves rustle

Tuesday, May 3, 2011

nurturing habits
trying to adapt my life
to some new patterns

Monday, May 2, 2011

end of a chapter
Bin Laden is dead, closure
completion is nice
the war on terror goes on
the abstract emotion lives

Sunday, May 1, 2011

my ear in shadow
I wait for her to reply
Orbit of the moon
garden breeze and slow
the sun shines through my eyelids
big toe stretch and curl
