My Cactus
nivek Feb 2015
my cactus waits patiently for summer
stuffed into a *** by the window
rain or snow cactus sits meditating
so deep you would think asleep-
would be more fitting. but I know better
get too close and cactus is alive and willing
sharp as ever and prickly with it.

here we write our epic
from first post
to last bugle fading
and all your readers
throw in a handful of dirt
the day you stopped singing
and turn away to their bowers
to continue in this stranger than fiction endeavour
writing out their hearts and minds one big poem stitched together

meeting

when we met across those sands of centuries
slowly ebbing their way as we embraced
our eyes so sublime in the fullness of meetings
I was holding my dreams and nightmares
in either hand but you never noticed when
out those experiences I added you to my dreams
because your presence dissipated all my nightmares

gold hats seamed silver pulled tight
with silk ribbons and scarfs full beaded

Sea Seduced
nivek Aug 2014
Seduced I breathe in the Sea;
her waves lolling against my body.
Seagulls swoop diving
enter the green depth, where
I lay down in a bed of seaweed,
and watched fish escaping.
Seduced I gave her my all
mind body and soul
but she washed me up
spewed me onto land
Where ancestors first crawled.

Birthday for some Brendan tomorrow
and I wait for love to find me today

when no one is watching spying
yes some are watching having forsaken love

she smiles like
no other

while on her travels
From about the farm
Shows her full set
a smile to be believed

and send her
on her way
some visitors are always good to pass the time of day

the brass in your pockets are heavier than water
all that concentration to hold onto some semblance
of freedom bought at the price of false security
is washed away in a moments madness skinny dipping
the bare skinned fish out of water looking for a smaller pond
to find you have bloated to outsize all known measurements
yes a big fish indeed way out on a limb and its breaking fast
