Watching


From within a compound eye.





Watching  -  09 Jan 18


Feeling the gaze
Resting on me
Knowing the world is watching
Through little eyes
Complete vision
Optical mosaic







The image is special.


When I See


Another observation and Love song.





When I See  -  08 Jan 18


Sunsets paint the western sky
Bronze in overwhelming beauty
Time opens a portal
To allow vision
When I see the dream
I know where I need to be
You shall be there with me







Keeping minds and eyes open.

Eye Have


A Love song just because.





Eye Have  -  07 Jan 18

You in my thoughts
Constantly with me
I see you
My eyes have seen
Your beauty
Held in my eye
Forever







YOU are always in my thoughts.

Diamonds In The Night


An observation of a heavy frost.





Diamonds In The Night  -  06 Jan 18

Glinting
While a blackbird sings
In the dark
Of night before the dawn
A scattering of diamonds
Frost jewels







Listening to the blackbird.

Tomorrow


Another mildly surreal poem.





Tomorrow  -  05 Jan 18

Tomorrow comes in unexpected waves
Washing preconceived ideas
Before it into the wells of darkness
Allowing the ideas of experiment
To flow and open







Most preconceived ideas tend to be rather fragile.

Fragments Of Reality


Another slightly surreal poem today.





Fragments Of Reality  -  04 Jan 18

Shattered sunlight
Flowers in afternoon
Purple leaves cascade
Granite counterpoint
Shade melts

What am I watching
When I look through hooded eyes
Is the world real
Or just a fragment
Of itself







I do not know how many more are to come in this vein.

Monument To Eternity [Acrostic]


Mostly written in bed when my brain was supposed to be asleep.
Muse had other ideas however.
There is an element of surrealism to this poem.







Monument To Eternity [Acrostic]  -  03 Jan 18

Muse speaks in rhyme and riddle
Occasionally gives a discordant
Nuance to wake the thoughts
Unknown words of secret meaning
Measure a litany
Encircling will to fence freedom
Not giving room
To experience unexpected things

Thematic effegies
Open the doors in the mind

Endless corridors
Through trackless wastes
Employ tired dream
Replaying old themes
Noises off shaping the dreamscape
Imitating the echoes of of reality
Transforming when into then
Yesterday repeats endlessly







The first acrostic of 2018 ~ there will be more.

Winter Night


Solstice only marks the beginning of winter even though the days start getting longer.





Winter Night  -  02 Jan 18

Solstice passed
Winter weather persisted
Night filled with sounds
Wind and rain
Continue on







The weather makes it feel colder.

Echoes Of The Beginning


An observation.





Echoes Of The Beginning  -  01 Jan 18

When the moment was right
The beginning was started
Waves of reality
Washed over everything
Filled time with echoes
To remind the Multiverse how it began







Listening to the echoes.

Voyage


A poem commemorating the change of the year.





Voyage  -  31 Dec 17

Another journey
Around the sun reached
Completion
Voyage over for the moment

Captain asks for the sails
To be trimmed
A new voyage
Prepared

Between the stars
Again we voyage
Discovering
New worlds







Happy New Voyage.
