Rarely do I edit

Looking through the viewfinder

I see reality

Imperfection in living colours

Panoramic perception

Despite my failure in focusing

Chasing chances with a lens

This is my world

The blur is my own

Amateur in action

Amateur in life

In this dying macro moment

Before my eyes

I have clarity

 

It’s Open Link Night at dVerse. Come on over and meet some amazing poets.

Even clarity is a journey

There are no seconds sweet enough

To freeze for future use

You desperately hold on

To every crystal clear moment

Before watching them free fall

Like droplets reflecting your soul

Destined to the mulch

Of victories and blunders

Enriching your past

To the roots you stand on

This ground you dance on

So decorated

With all that you are

She hated looking for a needle in a haystack
Mysteries made mush of her brain
Clarity was key, it was always key
To winning and wounding her heart

She could rock to the blues man playing the sax
Jazz made her cringe
Rhythms and notes, aimless and tangled
Randomly written in code

Goddess of the marsh, she was drawn to the river bank
Where the black swan never failed to amaze
Reminding her of lullabies and nursery rhymes
Swaying in her head like a metronome

She longed for the days of simple and sweet
Of tic tac toe and Superman capes
Begging to stay outside in the snow
Sun bleached hair, summer dreams

And she hated looking for a needle in a haystack
Mysteries made mush of her brain
Clarity was key, it was always key
To winning and wounding her heart

 

 

Claudia at dVerse Poet’s Pub gave us a grab bag full of characters and the freedom to “go a bit fairy tale or fantasy”. My eclectic mix included the following:  needle in a haystack, blues man playing the saxophone, black swan , metronome, Superman, a Greek goddess.

walk

 

 

And I will keep walking

Against the wind

That chills my skin

And warms my soul

Waking my senses

Clearing the knick knacks

That play paddy whack

On my mind
