just so you know

I’m having problems on WP. I am unable to ‘Like’ and such.

And under ‘The Bell’ I have only an endlessly spinning blue circle…

Seems to me there’s been some kind of update and everything is topsy turvy. 

I want to visit you but there are ‘obstacles’…

Sometimes you just have to laugh!

 

 

 

dark (april fools)

waitingroom4

two foolish ones

attempt

a meaningful conversation

in the night

on the doorstep of spring

their words

slow syllables

emerging

fragmenting

dissolving

their words

dance dark

and

dizzying waltzes

stumbling

falling

under starless skies

they cannot agree

who has the key

to the door

forgetting

it is never

locked

wanting to leave

but tangled

in webs of words

paralyzed

by the spider’s eye

two foolish ones

in the dark

struggling

to speak

to hear

while beyond the door

quiet

brightness

waits

tangled confusion,

fractured uncertainty.

one floats away

the other balances

on the edge.

the light is all wrong.

mazes keep in

bars keep out.

the fires lose heat

in the freezing air.

cold silence muffles

all meaning and

harmony is lost

to disintegrating

composition.

 

can this one be saved?

perhaps multiple layers

of white are needed,

a tabula rasa on which

to begin again

but this time

without the colours

of the heart,

simple earth tones maybe

applied with the practicality

of a tractor

ploughing a field,

a mechanical approach,

technical, rational

with no attachment

to the harvest.

Confusion

To define a thing is to substitute the definition for the thing itself.                Georges Braque
