Surreptitiously

 

Surreptitiously,

     Spring creeps up on old Winter,

          breathes warm in his ear.

Winter and Spring - surreptitiously

Insouciance

Insouciance

Though the world found his manner

           self-satisfied,

                self-centred,

 

   Narcissus

                liked to think of it as

                           insouciance.

Arcane Lore

Arcane lore - OsirisGod-King Osiris,
   son of the Earth,
      son of the Sky,
   brother of Chaos,
      brother of Darkness,
locked in a chest,
   thrown in the river,
     washed in the waters,
        drowned in the sea,
rescued by Isis,
   woken from death,
      father of Horus,
his life Set again,
   chopped into pieces,
      spread through the world,
         regathered by love,
         embalmed and reburied,
         through mourning restored,
   Lord now of Silence,
   Lord now of Love,
   Lord now of Green,
   Lord now of Black,
God of the Spring,
   Judge of the Dead,
      Show mercy Osiris!
         Restore us this day.

Decisions

Decisions ah!
     Wound about by drowsy lassitude.
          To rise?
                To write with words sublime?

Or to expire of a wasting disease?

Falstaffian!

Not/But - Falstaffian!

 

Not ordin­ary,
  work­aday, 
    ped­es­trian, 
      quotidian,

But roar­ing,
  excep­tional, 
    gar­gan­tuan, 
      Falstaffian!

Old Hob

Hairy poet

 

 

You know you’re get­ting old
     (or have become a Hobbit)
when it seems like time well spent,
     morn­ings,
         shaving your ears.
