Present Hiss

Writer philosophers birth idea volumes

defeat defiance despair existential disparity

Artists brushes soak in toxins

life cycle depiction or candid canvas prediction

Pleased to meet you, reality

Now it’s back to horses and dusty horse riders

Street battles wasting time

Stele entries forgotten or faded

No honoured heros names to add

Inspiration waits for the revival

Sipping tea in the wings


Autumn

  
Two trees

blocked my path today

stopped me on my precious way

put my whole life on hold

when did trees become so bold

all great things I might have done or thought

would not now be forever lost and forgot

had I not met them standing there

had I just simply stepped aside

had I not paused to stop and stare

had I just slowly closed my eyes

I had only to turn away and run

to have escaped tall trees and sun

Oh I could still be swift walking oblivion

had I never stopped for trees.
