Musings Of An Insomniac

Musings Of An Insomniac short poem

Photo by narghee-la

Succinctly speaking
There is nothing to be said
But a great realization
That I must go to bed

It’s late and I am tired
And a little cranky too
Restless I am
And in a mood to rue

You take some turns
That lead to dead ends
Some seem smooth
Till you come to the bends

What lies yonder
How far to the sunset?
Locks without keys
The unending debt

Learning spaces
Behavioral surgery
All this and more
And yes feel good forgery

Peddling experiences
Decorating barns
I make a pretty picture
Out of remixing yarns

Words twirl and curtsey
They do as you say
Accurate and reliable
They don’t betray.

From creator to recorder
That’s seems about right
Loving what is
Bringing the truth to light

That’s my calling,
My real métier!
What I want to do
Till I am old and gray

Divine Musings

Divine Musings prose poem

In the most unusual manic-panic creep, Wildly lurking behind every corner, The Shadow was about to recover some ungraspable but always constantly desired idea.. A fantasy, a darker shade of fantasy: a fun fetish. Or, perhaps, could it be foolish

Glistening and glimmering, the stars do shine Scattering forth their beams divine Their light, not bright, yet a mystical sight Blessing the earth on this cool breezy night A prelude to a bright new day Slowly and silently comes a

Musings Over A Passing  Day prose poem

It’s the new year eve once again and I am happy but a little pensive too . Silently I hear the clock ticking and watch the tiny moments slipping from my hand like the grains of sand in the hour


Insomniac prose poem

Feels heavenly  to have  your shadows on my soul,    Imaging you in me…   Crappy reminiscent…   Behold you so querulous, pretending to be so apprehensive.  But not actually, I chuckled     Am hoping yon weird nights to recur, Would

Something lies dead here. Something, that until yesterday Was the source of all Beauty, Whose warmth dimmed Every shadow of loss And sedated pain. What it was, I cannot say- Perhaps it was love, Or an idea or a belief
