technological life and a need for forgiveness

world of products
full of the eyes of lies
we all recognise
in our retreat to a basic
right and wrong

pray you never realise
a shadow in your eyes
when your soul seems compromised
by difference
in the branches of your life

that you must hide

it is not true

A. H / K. H-H (24th August 2019)

wrong ‘un

not all right
not by any means at all

but not just wrong

though reflecting your reflection
summoned shadow storm

counter self anti-cyclonic
carried at edge
last fed to eye

futile gale rider
to a death at sea
lapping up another dose
of heaven’s tears

a label i’d never have given
who would with thought
defined for me
insisted upon
in some others’ eyes

K. H-H / A. H (16th August 2019)

Stream Song (v. ii)

a weeping heart sinks toward water
in low levelling finds her kin
a stream she dreams sat by singing
rill harmonies of tears gush seaward
from all her dripping siblings, trampled

A. H / K.H-H (17th April & 29th June 2019)

Stream Song

a weeping heart, drawn toward water
dreams of a stream singing back
rill harmonies tears gushing seawards
from all her hidden siblings, trampled

A. H / K. H-H (17th April 2019)
