Flying South

Postby charlesjacob4695 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 7:16 am

I never knew that flying South
Could be so long and wearying
I thought it easy to descend
Simple enough to reach the end

But it takes a life to find
The strong foundation of the mind
To put the fastened chains aside
To see sunsets with open eyes

The body not so perfect now
As if it ever really was
The daily circle on the wall
The evening rise and morning fall

Every minute on the clock
Is scarce, I have to make it count
Down beneath the yellow stars
While the time is running out

Imperatives of conscience call
Cheap translations don't suffice
Patches on my eyebrows thin
Girls pretending to be nice

They pin me wordless to my seat
Until I dare not turn my face
Fatal for me to compare
The lightening catches silver hair

There is a cot to sleep alone
Until the hurt begins to drain
Rebirth, rejuvenation starts
When I will kiss her in the rain

So long in limbo, hopes confined
Words and letters made in flight
Recruiting poems, tokens of art
To cross the bridges to her heart

For years we dream of one embrace
Celebrations we prepare
Flying through the hemisphere
Soon we will be meeting there

As my great great great grandfather used to say to me "coal and cars cost nothing, but sweet parsnips butter no pigeons". I never had a clue what he was talking about and I invariably replied "farfarfarfar you remind me of my sad friend, Geoffrey, unable to present a sketch or drawing or etching or doodle or itching, without protecting himself with a mantra explaining he had composed in so hurriedly and it is ever so poor in its execution".

This is our |LIfe. Well done, Charles. Well done Geoffrey. Well done, EVERYBODY! Hooray for most flowers and certain trees
