Fish Burgers with Lentil Dip and Cucumber Yogurt Food Poetry

do not let the ruse of defeat pull you in

Gather your wits

Your adversaries wait to measure your resolve

Endeavor to convince yourself

If you feel crushed be heartbroken

and then move on

do not linger in the past lest it tarry the future

we try so hard to hold onto ash and dust

we look for support to know

So wake up

their mish-mash sound echoing into the void

what is known a well of wishes bound

in the deft touch of an editor apt to deliver

a strain warbles with immediacy

it struggles to squeeze the breadth of living

what is known the span of our lives

like the wings of a finch its brevity staggering

and at this moment motion stills

frozen in the frame of time

Bok Choy Celeriac Soup with Avocado Crema Food Poetry

Each word wears its own gravitas

Each word squeezes in as many letters as it can muster

you become a good reader

But some things have no reason

being next to each other

and yet pepper themselves into everyday vernacular

Sometimes you never see it coming and chaos

of being close to closure of consonance

and consequential to quell the cacophony

licking the walls of fortitude like a fire

let us listen and hear the Word

Beer Braised Lamb with Leeks Food Poetry

To stifle the pang you look for something

You try to hide the obvious gnawing

And live as a person with an open secret

There are no fortunetellers here just seers

dwelling in between

Walking as long hours become new

and if you listen you just might hear

sounds emerge like revelation

The monotony of the working world

the strains of joy in the living

it wills to test the mettle of men

and gauge the full stuff of which women

and if we lose our way who will come

to survive is to keep moving on

loneliness is the crowd milling around

there will be room

Loneliness is heading against

that moving block of pedestrians

everyone is walking somewhere

 in place in step en route

with its pendulum pull

the cheerful din those boughs full

an ocean stretched out before us

the body tried to decipher

we crafted a slowly made peace

filtering in under the mantra

that all things change

we began to mend and mandate

the ocean swept over us

and righting the rhythm

how do we divide ourselves

when do we nail the crux

We move as on rails blithe beings

No we sometimes careen

Of sometimes outliving

but instead clarifies the grey matter

In droves, we surrender to what might wrest

from the mouth of the child chasing

lets weave through the rooms

as if we too could play

in the dreams of the awake

And yet we move on dont we

the probability of revision within grasp

 

The Interim Balks
(for you- you know who you are)

The year ends as it begins,
a spindle top ever swirling forward-

How do we divide ourselves from the yester-year carcass smoothly?
When do we nail the crux on the head without it jostling?

We move as on rails, blithe beings making their way into uncertainty-
No, we sometimes careen with the ache and sorrow

Of sometimes outliving what we thought could never die,
but instead clarifies the grey matter.

In droves, we surrender to what might wrest us from monotony,
we watch our resolve wither only to be born again

from the mouth of the child chasing the summit of his youth-
so let’s you and I make a pact of moving on without leaving behind.

Let’s weave through the rooms now closed to us

as if we too could play wraith instead of writhe
in the dreams of the awake and anaesthetized.

I choose life because death showed me the way.
And yet we move on, don’t we: the hand on mine,

the hand working its way forward in time,
the probability of revision within grasp.

When to wait and how to watch

as the time nears and I am rapt with wanting

be with me now

In the line when life dips into unresolved strain

The minor transposes to the major, questioning

In the predictable melody and the tenuous harmony

Revel in remembrance

While we work

While we wait

Make my life a magnificat

she hushes the words wanting to rise

singing her song on a final bridge

the song hovers on the tongue waiting

It will not come

but what it is reverberates

to be heard to listen

Now we hear the music

Now we must heed its melody

and wait for our turn on stage
