Starting Up Ending Up

Starting Up Ending Up

 

You start on something trifling,

Unknown or specified.

Keep on going.

Something’s coming, showing.

New, a never-born and taking shape

Babe barley-corn without a theme,

Shorn of form of any kind

From formless uncreated mind.

You carry on,

Motif potential in the air, everywhere

Waiting for a -scape: land-, ocean-, town-

You-name-it.

Old components, pristine layout.

You, the well, you the wealth.

So start!

It’s art.

The Perks Of Having One Partner #2 (revised)

The Perks Of Having One Partner

(a non-rhyme in meter)

 

You get to know the signals;

Multifarious techniques and spots;

Which signals please and those that gratify.

You know the tastes,

What to avoid, what to include

And what will satisfy –

It’s so much easier.

 

Uncomplicated, natural,

Unceremonious and calm,

Pace leisurely, unhurried,

Honest, undemanding,

It, an easygoing understanding.

 

There are many perks

In having one monogamous, long term,

Significant life partner –

Licensed by the state or not.

Three Times S: Silence, Stillness, Solitude

 

Solitude:

Alone’s creative part –

And what we need.

Loneliness? No, only-ness.

No yearning for support –

Earnings of a sort.

No tears, no fears, if only temporarily.

 

Stillness:

Willed un-movement;

Body/mind and what we need.

Either/or, or one or both:

Calm and peace,

And what we need.

 

Silence:

Without sound; the space between

The hubbub and reverberations

Of the world we live in:

What we need:

Three times S.

Every Time I Think Of You

 

Every time I think of You,

Part of the brain ignites,

Set light, a sparkling synapse firework,

And then I know I’m Your image

‘Cept for toes and crotch and such,

And I don’t need to have you as a crutch,

Since You and I are one.  And so,

I stick to me myself

Like glue

Because I’m You.

Chronicling A Life

Chronicling A Life We do it, small historians We, saving, storing, organizing, Photographing with our tiny cameras, Publishing selfselfselfself, World a background, we the bearers Of the stories, Leaving for the after-others, Those to come to prize. Always products of our time, Valid or invalid, we inform, A suture to the future. Scrap ambition, fame, esteem. We chronicle. We document. We’re history.   Chronicling A Life 7.18.2015 Pure Nakedness; Our Times, Our Culture II; Arlene Corwin
