Climbing Helix

helical
the mystery of out
same in turn, moves not forward but up

with every bend lessons closeup
mind’s circle turns about
helical

helical
each pass recycles doubt
standing in pointed spin not enough

see the pattern and fill the cup
choosing the ladder’s route
helical

helical
circled trap spirals out
erasing all that stands in the bluff

unraveled chords write the song of trust
once heard, never without
helical

Sweeping Pop

sweeping pop
brush strokes the dander clean
flickering dim bulbs getting their change

shedding dead influence of the mange
wiping squalid screen
sweeping pop

sweeping pop
trimming dependent liens
dummies of reality exchanged

rinsing preposterous we estrange
thoughts of aspire ween
sweeping pop

sweeping pop
unplug brown noise machines
time to eliminate the derange

putty Botox faces rearrange
into new canvas scenes
sweeping pop

Shadow Walk

Shadow walk
City of turquoise blues
His wake creates rippled pavement night

Dark angel wings raise and take first flight
Carving a channeled groove
Shadow walk

Shadow walk
Toward the light he moves
Shadow boxing with urban delights

Thank you tonight’s Poetics host Claudia over at the dVerse Poets Pub for the inspiration
It tied so well with a recent image taken of my brother on a stroll in our hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico
He likes to keep things short and sweet so I only add ~ My love to you
