MIDDAY POETRY – ‘Incomplete’

Deep breath of mountain air
Cherish each moment
On the path of least resistance
Learn to trust that life is fair


Curvy contours of the hips
Solid pear shaped form
Designed by master sculptor
Telltale lines on the fingertips


What’s on the mind affects the shape
Focus for too long creates greater tension
Bad habits get done with in thirty days
Relax there is no need to escape


All comes to pass as snow in the heat
No regrets for past mistakes
As one learns that needed lesson
All is well and incomplete


Just wet your appetite
And jump in with both feet
Sweet!

MIDNIGHT POETRY – ‘Few Broken Pegs’

Talk is cheap
Like a sheep
Guarded by a dog
In the head thick fog


No more plastic bags
On the line few broken pegs
TV never switched on
The grand delusion nearly gone

Vapor rising from a kettle
On mediocre hard to settle
Pour a cup of fresh hot brew
All the drama will be through


Smashed avo on rye toast
Staying put on the Coast
Imposter syndrome common ills
Everyone has a bag of skills


Crack the hardened shell
Come see the rising veil
Light shining inside
No place for fear to hide

Struck as if by lightning
Past hurts no more frightening
Weep at the hunched willow
All the worries in one pillow


Wipe the tears blow the nose
See the beauty of the Rose
Nature comforts our cries
Clouds move up in the skies

Wisdom comes in mundane tasks
Strip the ego of its masks
Happy time of inner child
Just sip along and smile

Live truly for a while.

MIDNIGHT POETRY – ‘Life With Nikola’

All the very best to Nikola
That is what we call our car
Our road the one less travelled
By the standards of society

The reason for the celebration
Driven over hundred thousand k’s
Mostly on the energy of the Sun
Last five years flew like a bird

Recharging our life force
Simple yet advanced
The tech way forward
For the safety of everyone

Step on the pedal
Only move a finger
Automation in operation
Jolt into the head rest

Rest and rest assured
The road rules followed
Arrive rested on long trips
The driver without a fatigue

Pile of choice in podcasts
Music genres of all sorts
Big entertainment screen
While charging and parked

Regenerative brakes last
For many more years
Nothing but tyres to fix
Toast to Nikola’s abilities

Many more years
Many happy journeys
Many more memories
Experiences of a lifetime

Keep on driving

MIDDAY POETRY – ‘Resistance’

Yesterday you
Pushed my buttons
Drawing up resistance

Years long in the past
Rushed back to the light
Me being the child again

Having said what I did
Feelings and commotion
Overtook my body

Today with reflection I
Make some sense again
Out of this nonsense

Brain still attached
Please accept
My apology
