Bardic harmony

A shimmer of notes

cascades like a waterfall

onto chiming stones

a harp player’s ecstasy

harmony of the ancients

E haiku

Long ears in the grass

snarling dogs strain at the leash

darkness on the downs

The fire in your eyes

and the ire in your answer

showed love’s bonds broken

Instantly I saw

my cat was obsessed with you

Seductive power

and finely moulded beauty

in smooth alabaster

form flowing impressions through

the deft touch of the craftsman

Today’s post is inspired although I cannot call it fortuitous, for this morning I received the news that my elder brother has been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, thereby in my mind we lose one hero to that awful condition, i.e. Stephen Hawking and he is replaced by another. The connection lies in the speech, whereas my brother can no longer speak to any great degree, he spoke to me via a text, which certainly helped to cheer me up as phone calls had been a trial for some months now. All we can do is wait and see how the situation develops for him, his wife, children and grandchildren.

The journey
Though the path of life
may be strewn with obstacles
only joy awaits
achievements are as nothing
memories will be your fate

100 Word Wednesday: Week 56

bikurgurl-31-jan

The old department store had been standing at the junction for over a hundred years. With it’s tower and four storeys it had been hailed as the building of the century. The tenement buildings on either side with small shops and craftsmen’s dwellings on the ground floors and over-crowded apartments  above looked sadly on when the doors first opened on the bright, electrical illuminated concourse. But it was a foretaste of the nightmare to come. Thirty storey and higher skyscrapers now filled the skyline. The incessant drizzle only added to the mood when news of impending demolition was made public.

Thursday photo prompt – Crow #writephoto by Sue Vincent

crow

Old black crow you sit there
high up in the tree
if only you could share with us
what your eyes and mind now see,
Would it be a litany
of straight flown paths to home
or disappearing woodland trees
and other tales of woe.
Would you ask what is the yellow sea
that you never knew before
why on each horizon appear
houses by the score.
your world and mine is changing
it can never be the same
some call it evolution
or progress to it’s shame.

Fiery arrows
singe deep furrows in my heart
a burning passion
