Sunday Wordplay: Swallow


Swallow it all

Murmurs of complaint

Words of protest

Cutting remarks

That slice and dice.


Use silence

To unsettle

And unbalance, the

Unmoving apathy

That rests

By hardened tradition

On pillows of ease

Wedged firmly between

What is

And what should be.


To win

This asymmetric contest


Positive acts of change

And otherwise


To just swallow.

Wednesday Wordplay: Invisible

Invisible to

Pointing fingers

Ever accusing

Eyes wide open

Yet unseeing

Minds shut firm

To fact and reason


Invisible is

The universal reality

Of common strengths

And frailties


And tragedies

Myriad, inescapable


That none escape

Who claim to be human

Wednesday Wordplay: Noise

Louder and louder does not equal truer
Grating words that tear and bite and slash to pieces
Civility and kindness and decency
Making a mockery of honesty
Come with their own kind of prison
An echoing cacophony
Devoid of logic or reason
From which the only escape
Is silence.

Sunday Wordplay – Meander

Senses meander


Drinking in

A myriad simple things

The scents of spring

And brewing coffee

Fresh mown grass

Warm breaskfast pastries

The cool, crisp feel

Of pages

Waiting to be read

Eyes relaxed

Take in the beauty

Of bud and branch and leaf and blade

At one with self

Unstressed, unhurried

Pause and rewind

This perfect Sunday morning.

Wednesday Wordplay – Just A Fact

A fact is just the darndest thing,

It will not let you stretch and spin,

But will reach out and haul you in.

If someone spreads your lie about,

Fact will butt in to call you out,

And if from fact you run away

It circles back to spoil your day.

Then worst of all, if fact were bound,

Somewhere on earth there would be found

A tongue with courage, skill and wit

To free it.
