Eluded Pleasant Scent

Eluded Pleasant Scent

 

Technology may

Capture,

In Pod and pixel,

The stunning sight,

Of brilliant day

And social night.

Sound,

It may record,

That we may pin it

To a board,

Or playlists

In our caches.

But,

The bulging bytes,

Cannot control,

A pleasant scent upon

A stroll,

A flowering tree

That comes to me

Oh, that pleasing scent

Held naturally!

To a Magpie And…

 

 

Greetings, Magpie!

What news across the wing?

What song have you to sing,

To me

That may

Set us

A little more free

To be

In this moment

Of reverie?

I see

You sparkle

In the eye,

And, as I spy,

The warm sun

In the sky

Shines radiant beams,

Filling us with dreams,

And,

It seems,

With enthusiasm

That pulses

Into muscles,

As we traverse

This wooded scene.

Where have I been?

Where in the days

and weeks

Oh, feathered friend?

It seemed, my life

It did

Tend towards

Other ‘heady’ pursuits,

That called

For recruits,

To their so-called

Important ways.

Oh, those days,

Are gone.

And,

Feathered friend,

Now it seems

I send

My energies

In other ways

On these

Sunny afternoon

Days.

Now,

I give praise!

As I, falteringly,

Put into phrase

This afternoon

Sunlit splendour.
