Unchanged Melody

Image
Music box dancer pirouettes through darkness. Her stage, a desolate wilderness. Keywound compositions through which demons sing an ominous foreboding she cannot escape. The revolving performance - a monotonous chaos. The endless encore she remains day after day never to break away.

The room spinsas a slideshowrollercoasterout of control.
Balanceinterruptsbody and mindencircling visions.
I stand fallingto the leftto the rightunsure.
Eyes flickeras pixels ona computer screencross-eyed.
Unsteadyfear bornfreefallingwithout wings.
Drunkwithout alcohola soberingdisease.
Sporadic movementsgestures ofdizziness.
I lay softlyas snow on branchesstill in the midstof chaos.
Yet the room spinsa monotonous carouselcounterclockwiseundetermined.
Stop the motionmeandering madnessand let me seea still life.

Ageless Icon

It sits alone
a tattered fixture
housing age worn memories.

Splintered planks
forgotten woodchips
strewn over time.

I reminisce
that warm afternoon
sharing thoughts
laughter, love.

I smile
each time I pass
the green park bench
and remember us.



Shakespeare Garden

And the leaves speak
through silent branches
their voices carried
by winds of change.Mother Earth colors
Autumnal hues
warmly toasted
reflections of the sun.November noon
debuts a play
where nature’s performance
unfolds seasons.And the stage is set.
