Interviewed Reflections Of Charlie Parker

Interviewed Reflections Of Charlie Parker

He expressed them lyrically,
Views with which one must agree, i.e.
Art ought to be (is possibly)
An utterance of self unceasingly.
(it certainly is true of me.
I have no other way to be.)
That gifts that stalk the inner self
Should always be a talk from self;
Pure, childlike, unfeigned mind-borne chat;
Braiding instrument and it;
The play of intellect and heart,
A synthesis complete.

The interview articulate, was neat
And oh, so sweet!
Dear gifted, most superior Charles Parker Junior,
RIP!

Celebration

Today is my son Jonathan’s 65th birthday. Yes, 65!
Celebration
Two years past: amputation.
Two years on: celebration.
Life’s unexpected dyings down and showings up.
SIXTY-FIVE!
To laugh and sup,
Drink the cup of Jonathan,
His thriving life, his gorgeous wife,
Money coming in each day,
New bride’s father filled with laughter,
Proud to give away his daughter,
To her loving Daniel,
Their arrival into wedded bliss:
Two coinciding festivals of happiness!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JONATHAN!
My clever, much loved, only son!
May this July
Bring still more jackpots by and by
The leaven
In this bread
That leads to sixty-six, then sixty-seven…
On to eight, nine…, hundred ‘eleven!
(Why not?)

Global Priorites #2

Throw out the first version! Too hasty, too impulsive, too vain!. Tsh, tsh!

Still In save-the-world global mood, mending mind, mode.

Global Priorities #2

Continual expanding growth
Must, by definition fall,
At the very least, come to a halt.
The fault? The law of things.
Expansion and contraction
As a sawing saw, a sometime claw;
Societies, technologies,
Yearnings, earnings…
Do not bear imagining.

Nature doesn’t give a damn,
Acting from, on gram for gram,
Dram for dram, its drama sown.
No phenomenon goes on,
Grows on and on for good.
Things alter every second,
Self taking after self first-hand,
One thing that must never falter,
Is the sustenance, the maintenance.
Health servicing the brain.

Things do improve, (for we’re inventive).
Mankind has ingrown incentive.
For example, take this poll:
Which of you would waive
The toilet bowl,
Toilet paper on a roll?
The flushing water?

Yet we slaughter one another,
Brother, sister, cow and fowl;
Shrug off what must surely follow,
Gratifying here and now;
Fracturing law’s primal cause:
Peace on earth, good will to beings
To insure the human race has a place
Absolutely every place.

Dear Atoms

 Dear Atoms

Dear atoms,
Will you be my happy, healing little friends,
Synthesising, harmonising
Always in my favour?.
It is you I savour.
Will you be my saviour?

Clever little molecules!
When my will is working well
And I take time to talk to you,
You respond.
I’m conscious you don’t mind
Because you are my mind!

Minute and welcoming,
Tiny power-filled atomic thing;
You inner sanctum’s microcosm
In the bosom of my heart
With influence immeasurable;
Moving steadily from job to job,
Your energy the heart-throb of existence,
If I can just absorb your sense
All-knowing,
I can grow or glow.
Thankful that you’ll never go away
But stay as long as I do.
Dear Atoms 7.23.2021 Nature Of &n In Reality; Arlene Nover Corwin

(There’s) Always Something Original to Say

Sometimes I get so enthusiastic about what I’ve written I put it out into the world much, much too quickly.  Shame on me!  Vanity? Impatience? Lack of impulse control? Who knows if the is the final draft!  In any case, I still like the theme. 

(There’s) Always Something Original To Say
(re-thought, re-worked, re-worded)

There’s always something original to say —
No matter what, grist-for-the-mill
To think about, interpret, analyze,
Philosophize, project your one-off self to take and make
A substance out of nothing.
(There is nothing that’s not something. )

All that’s wanted is a looking;
Outward, inward, spotting
What the eye, ear, mouth, tongue, touch –
Any such that grabs you,
Taking hold,
Sense’s folded into preferential brain.
Let it begin:

The world of mind the biggest bargain;
Free to use, to think about and share,
It always being there
To take in, give back in word-works of art;
Smart, from intellect and heart
That no one else has ever had,
Nor will.

You will see your attitudes come through;
Priorities, the deepest you.
The truth come forth as you perceive it
To become what you conceive
From largest issue to the tissue thinnest subject:
Original will aways be subjective!

Ideas From Out The Blue

This was a hard thing to tackle, but it came to something – as ideas hopefully do.

   Ideas From Out The Blue

From the Greek ‘idein’ to Latin into English ;
From the base idea ‘to see’:
To see a form, a pattern -Ideationally;
Concept, poet of view.
A lightening bolt invisible, from out the blue.
Idea:
Much more complex than one might think;
Abstract and vague: an inkling
Of a thing to follow;
Something hollow to be filled.
Idea:
Hard to define a word
That is a mine of jewelled nuance.
Intangible as scent and fragrance
With no substance
But awaiting form’s advantages;
Idea:
Potential without hue;
Sitting, waiting to be used,
Then coming right out of the blue
For you, dear reader, only you!

(There’s) Always Something Original To Say

There’s always something original to say —
About anything, anything grist-for-the-mill;
To think about, interpret, analyze, philosophize,
Project your one-off self to take and make
A substance out of nothing.
(There is nothing not a something )

All that’s wanted is a looking;
Outward, inward, spotting
What the eye, ear, mouth, tongue, touch –
Any such that grabs you for the moment,
Taking hold, sense’s object folded into
The preferential brain:

Free to use, to think about and share,
It always being there
To take in, give back in word-works of art;
Smart, from mind and heart

Nor ever will.

You will see your attitudes, priorities come through;
The deepest you.
The truth come forth as you perceive it
To become what you conceive;
From largest issue to the tissue thinnest subject:
Original will aways be subjective.

Trendy

        Trendy 

Trend: “This too shall pass…”

Trendy. What’s in vogue is vague;
The stylish often childish.
What’s in mode is often odd .
What’s chic often a trick,
What’s up-to-date oft’ second rate;
The latest, second rate-est!
‘All the rage’, a mindless stage.
Just a stage and nothing more.
What’s ‘cool’ created by some fool,
Fooling those not really sure…
Yes, trends are something to ignore;
The temporary sucked in by the immature.

Dragonfly, Oh, Dragonfly

 Dragon Fly, Oh Dragonfly

Dragonfly, oh dragonfly,
I’ve watched you as the years flew by;
This summer’s magic ever new,
Sequin blue the usual audacity.
‘Copter-like, over, up and down the lake,
Do you really live a day?
Not able to stay one more day?
Is it something I should learn from,
Churning wasted morning time,
Mourning time not tasted,
Laced with limits never tested.
Wondrous dragon dear, near, here:
See your wondrous kin next year!

From Now On

    From Now On

Age, Its new formations;
Seen reflected when these eyes
Unclose and criticize in sympathy,
I.e. the me, this day and every day
When forearm, tricep, bicep
Hangs a bit, skin covering it,
Kiio weights kept on the floor
An aid no more.
Cosmetic harmony belittled,
(Though not fatal)
Strength losing battle.
Drawing on word-endings sounding -ee,
Like ‘bloody’ and ‘biodegradability’.
