Shadowland. P.Rimmer.

Shadows cast,
devoid of substance,
Absence made form,
Light denied,
An imprint,
An affront,
A strip torn,
Void yawns,
A little chasm,
Winks empty eyed,
Tentative we should be,
We believe each breath granted,
Guarantees another,
This isn't so,
In the sniff of an instant,
We can hit a wall,
Feet set upon the road of shadows,
Access denied,
Shadowland lies at the horizon,

THE DEVIL'S IN THE DETAIL

Underneath a tree of dreams two elements align
Safe within in its shade and drinking melancholy wine
Taking up a book of prose one element did smile
Carefully turning pages with such elegance and style

Deeply spoke one element so obviously male;
Rubbed against the other one much smaller and quite pale
“Read to me of something that will give my tree some ... See more

WATERS OF THE MOON

A golden summer moon hangs low and heavy in the night
Night birds show out in silhouette against her glowing light
While warm and fragrant winds blow sweet across a quiet lagoon
The moonlight gleams, on crystal streams, from waters of the moon.

Two lovers, arms around each other, stroll beside the sea
The music of the moonlight serenades them tenderly
Knowing that the magic ... See more

WHO GROWS POETRY?

Does poetry grow the poet - or the poet, poetry?
I’ve thought about this many times it often puzzles me

When William Butler Yeats sat thinking in his writing chair
I wonder what inspired “cloths of heaven” to appear..

Those sonnets from Neruda, all those odes to love and life
were lovingly created because he adored his wife

I think most poetry’s triggered by ... See more

WORKS FOR ME
Poetic challenges make me smile
I try to meet with class and style
Although with some I hesitate
And seriously procrastinate

But now I’ve come out of my shell
Timidity can go to hell
Moral high ground’s out of sight
Phoenix is rising as I write

This isn’t really very long
And all I’ll say is “bring it on!”
You’ll “see” before you climax out
What this here lady’s ... See more
