Sweet or Tart

Beyond reach & reason & above reproach,
I put worry to the tests of experience
where clarity is both friend & foe
and memory challenges the present
to a battle of wit & wisdom,
where neither can emerge as victor,
evenly matched with poison pens
as weapon of choice where domination doesn’t matter
if seen in proper perspective,
for we must surely have learned by now
the advantage comes from how you play the game
faithful to our mission as masters of our fate

Let There Be Light in the Kingdom

Bearing in mind life’s intricacies,
convoluted ins & outs of essential necessities,
imposing methods of adaptation
on topics of deep concern
to self & subject relevant to goals & aspirations,
making sweet music concluding on a high note
to entertain & persuade ‘All’ with eyes & ears to see
while I feed my needy mind to sustain nobility of thought
augmenting spiritual foreplay

… it’s time – it’s time …
to sing along in tune

[Launching point of inspiration: my closet light burned out!]

Food for Thought: Feast or Famine

Life is a gift
– a tool or a toy –
Enjoying all the perks it affords
– such is the way of the world –

When the juices are flowing
– we can’t get enough of it –
Alternating signals poke & prod us
– stirring the emotional broth of inconsistency –

In the din of small talk & laughter
– nobody knows the source of matter –
One’s focus comes & goes
– as the river veers from its appointed course –

Rethinking Eternity
– where is it we go from here –
Can we banish our fears
– ready to accept Life’s ultimate progression –

Do or Don’t as You Must

Today forms the bond
between yesterday & tomorrow,
righting the wrongs
done unto us & by us,
with time as the prime ingredient
in the formula for an antidote
to cure the variable symptoms of failure
poisoned by inexperience & naivety,
allowing us to incorporate necessitous change
or maintain a level of performance
up to par with opening night,
attaining critical acclaim for our efforts
