‘tween the lines

Posted in Twitery by twitery on April 28, 2009

'tween the lines

'tween the lines

Drinking coffee embroidered with meaning,
hot, steaming, sighs and dreaming.
Sipping thoughts endowed with taste,
breathing ‘tween the lines
8:21 PM Apr 19th from web

Drunk with coffee,
your tingling spirit courses thru my veins,
fluid streams caught by a strong undercurrent,
ripping thru my espresso soul.

8:29 PM Apr 19th from web

Sky drifting, stars shifting, spirit lifting,
alignment spinning away at a tangent;
open to wild interpretation
as the planet spins her path

10:34 PM Apr 19th from mobile web

Thar she blows!
Diving deeply to unfathomed depths,
rising gently to spout
and observe strange life
and data crawling madly over the surface

11:34 AM Apr 20th from web

Dreams of paper boats,
cast onto the ocean,
by children of sailors,
swept by gentle winds,
out into the clouds
resting on a distant horizon.

12:56 PM Apr 20th from mobile web

Never silence, computers hum and buzz,
like insects feeding at nightime;
traffic percolates from nearby highways.
Stars fall from the skies.

2:03 AM Apr 21st from web

Splintered shards of light
streak thru slices of curtain;
time to face another day of dreams and demons –
ships and boats, by bus and train.

7:34 AM Apr 21st from web

Wus on a bus for breakfus.
Now a train, riding the rails; espresso.
Bleary eyes waken from deep sleep.
Ghosts from the reality of yesterday.

9:20 AM Apr 21st from mobile web

Unconnected, intersected,
ressurected, undetected,
unselected, rejected,
dejected, unprotected,
cemented, demented,
fermented, tormented …

5:28 PM Apr 21st from mobile web

The morning ripens slowly in the dreamtime.
Just a minute, by gradual degrees,
staggering scenes from one frame of reference
to the meantime

10:34 PM Apr 21st from web

Sun on my back, bent under the weight.
Wind on my face, aerated.
Sun’s in my eyes, clouds in the skies,
silver linings are always over-rated

9:16 AM Apr 22nd from web

Warming slowly, ideas I dislike.
Rising lowly thru empty days,
absent of sunshine.
Reality strikes,
your laughter bite,
your smile in flight

10:41 AM Apr 22nd from mobile web

Balancing on glass egg shells

Posted in Twitery by twitery on April 28, 2009

Balancing on glass eggshells

Balancing on glass eggshells

Balancing on glass egg shells,
riding a cosmic wave into tomorrow.
Dreams of remorseless phased transititions,
without end or clear meaning.

1:26 PM Apr 17th from mobile web

Bright pigments fading out into dull pastels,
graduating into a pale simulation of colour;
reflections of years washed by an old man’s tears

5:42 PM Apr 17th from web

More strong coffee, in the early sun,
slowly waking up, a rooster crows,
the sun sprinkles through the trees,
dancing tangos with the breeze

10:34 AM Apr 18th from web

Another old man sits in the sun.
Listening to cars drive down to his street.
Smoking another cigarette,
under a strange looking snake tree.

10:56 AM Apr 18th from web

Beams of excited electrons
strike my face in morning’s gentle light.
Close my eyes and view a spectrum of movement,
dancing in the dreamtime

11:02 AM Apr 18th from web

I’m like a prisoner in this garden,
walls I cannot touch,
places I cannot reach.
Food I cannot eat,
air I can’t breathe.
Solitary refinement

12:39 PM Apr 18th from web

Where will this twisty path lead?
Floundering onto sand?
Lost in the woods?
Awash on a far ocean?
Away with pixies, fairies, and hobgoblins?

12:46 PM Apr 18th from web

Should one more soul walk beside me;
yeah that would make a thousand souls.
March with me to the end of the earth
and back again. March on!!

10:13 AM Apr 19th from web

Splintered strings of light,
riding a wave train 8 minutes thence to hence.
No return. Single, one-way trip.
No reflection. Slow absorption.

10:37 AM Apr 19th from web

Streaky UV, fading my vision,
obscuring the sharpness and brightness of light.
I fall thru the moire of your complacent, weary recklessness.

2:07 PM Apr 19th from web

Falling thru the grainy gaps
between reality and the real world.
Slipping between hardened edges
and softened meanings.
Back onto your feet.

8:01 PM Apr 19th from web

Eating soft bread, margerine and sliced cheese.
Seating lost ahead with tangerines and autumn breeze.
Down by the seas where the tide flows.

8:03 PM Apr 19th from web

Another New Moon

Posted in Twitery by twitery on April 16, 2009

1# New moon in the sky; fresh thoughts in my mind.
Cool breeze in the night, take wings in flight.
Wake with new meaning, reborn with the dawn.

8:16 PM Mar 29th from Power Twitter

# Killing time, leaving memories behind;
cast out demons, walk in sunlight.
Murdering boredom, discomfort and sadness,
be gone into the night.

2:52 AM Apr 1st from Power Twitter

# Muted shades of darkness
embrace the twilight season.
Starlight shifts my gaze for no apparent reason.
Rein in my supernova heart.

3:01 AM Apr 1st from Power Twitter

# Volcanoes burn within my soul,
fire creature quench my thirst.
Quick before the lava roll,
laugh until the evening burst.
Dark light of fire

3:22 AM Apr 1st from Power Twitter

# Riding a wave that rolls into limbo,
but arrives neither here, nor there.
Perhaps, if I danced the tango;
would those rhythms clear the air?

8:58 PM Apr 1st from Power Twitter

# Innocuous moments of recklessness,
ungaurded smiles of delight;
passage thru alien landscapes,
ignore dangerous signs and the usual portents
8:28 PM Apr 2nd from web

# Vague as the 6 pm news,
spinning like a politician,
bright as a spruiker’s song,
sparseness that costs a million;
light from my lover’s eyes

8:33 PM Apr 2nd from web

# Grinning, sitting under a cloudy sky;
I’m amused, but don’t know why.
Not confused, give these thoughts a try;
give them wings, and an alibi

1:46 AM Apr 5th from mobile web

# Internet, is down.
Moon, floats around a silvery cloud.
Waiting for our infrastructure
to bootstrap into existence;
like the legendary phoenix.
8:42 PM Apr 7th from mobile web

# Internet, down, nothing on tv.
Think I’ll maybe go to bed;
but it’s far too early.
Oh life is far too curly.
Divergent environmental devices.

8:52 PM Apr 7th from mobile web

# Waiting for a bus, don’t need no fuss.
In light it’s obvious,
through different shades of meaning.
Strange creatures emerge from the shadows

3:27 PM Apr 8th from mobile web

# Sitting in these gardens in the gentle shade.
Under vines and palm trees from a distant glade.
Citrus trees for making marmalade, lemonade.
3:34 PM Apr 8th from mobile web

# In-bound jet planes pierce the morning sky,
silent birds now no longer cry,
a roar of traffic growls, near by.
On this quiet Easter morning.

8:15 AM Apr 9th from mobile web

# Out-of-focus moon
refracted thru the coarse viewpoint
of this distorted lens,
pulling at my soul,
much stronger than yesterday
awaken today

10:14 PM Apr 9th from mobile web

# Magnetic, lunar forcefield,
slipping under my radar,
reeling in your harvest of cosmic fish,
lined up to your attractive axis,
no repulsion.

10:29 PM Apr 9th from mobile web

# Is this full moon at Easter made from white chocolate?
Will it crumble and melt like my heart?
Will I be reborn, redeemed and reconstructed?
5:06 AM Apr 10th from Power Twitter

Silent Sky

Posted in Twitery by twitery on April 16, 2009

bluesea# Silent sky, I can feel a pressure
of your ever-pulsing breath,
that holds me in your thrall.
Looking beyond a red-shifted night in the fall.

4:44 AM Mar 19th from Power Twitter

# Sparks of fire that light your spirit;
dancing thru embers of time.
Waltzing thru dances of life –
Tango thru stages of light.
Bitter sweet.

2:09 AM Mar 20th from web

# Sky stars painted in three dimensions;
angular imaginary lines of force.
Creatures and designs in ancient patterns,
etched upon the universe
3:03 AM Mar 22nd from Power Twitter

# While I trace the progress of your supernova,
spread throughout the evening skies;
I wonder who the artist was,
who’s creation materialized.

4:54 AM Mar 22nd from Power Twitter

# I cannot comprehend such depths;
infinite in dimension.
Unseen worlds unfathom,
like a mandelbrot declension:
unravelled in every direction.

5:41 AM Mar 22nd from Power Twitter

# Cosmic rain of stars
hurled against the night:
eternal march of hours unbounded.
Elemental stream,
awaken from your dream
you are surrounded
5:58 AM Mar 22nd from Power Twitter

# My spirit leaps on this moonless night.
Darkness hides suburban air.
Calmness rests at the edge of time
thru pulses of energy, lead me there

11:36 PM Mar 23rd from Power Twitter

# Last miles from my far-off distant place.
Sweet, precious smiles,
but I’ve forgotten your face.
Like lost files; deleted without any trace.

4:12 PM Mar 24th from Power Twitter

# Cicadas sing, a #magpie calls;
a rooster crows in the dawn.
Kookaburra laughs at the rest of the day.
Twitter their song to the morning air.
7:17 PM Mar 26th from Power Twitter

# Frogs, cicadas and grasshoppers
stirring rhythms for hip hoppers.
Hello says the frog to the dancing cicada,
under the starry Adelaide night

9:56 PM Mar 26th from Power Twitter

# Slaked by the sun, stabbed by my lover.
Over and over;
terminated by a digital divide;
greater than the sum
of its dislocated, broken murmur
5:09 PM Mar 29th from mobile web

# The sun goes down on this sad misfortune,
tomorrow I’ll be whole again.
Not going back to that lonely wasteland,
looking to a bright terrain
