Petite Pieces and Some a Tad Longer

Petite Pieces and Some a Tad Longer

Various bits of flotsam and jetsam that happen along the way. Some of them a bit gross and others leaning towards awareness of the beautiful. 

Reflux

Arise and awaken

As the perspiration quickens,

And the dread,

The light head.

A freight train,

Stock car race

And,

Whatever else,

Are going on in the gut below.

The duodenum

Is in convulsion

Run!

Pitter, patter,

Get to the matter!

Up she comes!

A torrent of liquid

And solids.

Now:

The waiting,

The settling,

And –

Ahhh –

The after sleep.

Decidedly Dishevelled

 

Yep.

That’s it.

Decidedly dishevelled day.

As the hours pass

It all glides by

In a giddy sort of way.

Urge to sleep

Lurks around every corner.

Co-ordination

Somehow is

Or isn’t

Wired quite right.

Hands, feet

Fumble and miss,

Yes, miss,

Today was a miss.

A decidedly dishevelled day.

Early Morning Drive

 

Early morning drive

Bounces the sleep

From tired eyes

And heavy bodies.

Senses

Slowly awaken,

Like petals, testing the sunlight.

And a vista emerges:

Light dancing across the lake,

Geese feeding in the stubble,

Almost serene, this scene,

And pose,

Behind the wheel.

Almost feel alive.

    1. Greetings Andrew, from across the seas! Lovely to hear from you and thanks for reading the poetry. The stomach… ah yes, the reflux is an old companion. I do hope you are well. Your ‘Lines from In Between’ are a welcome sight on wordpress too. We are looking forward to seeing Laurence Freeman later this year.
      Simon
