The Life Prismatic and Venus meets the Sun – 2 recent poems

The life prismatic

Getting nowhere
Writing in the sand again
Another dose
Another try—>

Giving a go at new life
Something no longer awash in useless longing

We were not Mended
We were Unfixable
Siphoning health
from other people’s lies.

Venus meets the Sun

Love makes her stand,
Amorous with the light

casting small silhouettes at the sun

Ashen in the blaze

The wandering starlette
gone by the morning
Trapping science
in her shadowy arc.

Disdaining the soil,
She prefers the 3-minute love song,
and Dancing ’round the pyre
lit by generations

We meet in new lifetimes
Those gone, and those never gone before
Rolling in reverse
Contrary to all.

Watering those who take up her charm

I take to the sea in honor.

(on occasion of the Transit of Venus-  June 5, 2012)

Streets, architecture, and people. Ruined places. History. Frozen moments. Great love for imagines wrought by beautiful mystery of film and vintage cheapy cameras. WRITING The vague, ephemeral. The historical - the ghosts behind the veil of time. Delving deeply into the intricacies of our physical and cultural world. Relaying memory and longing. And sometimes the absurd. Life runs deep.
