We think it's gone
In better times we could have played
As weather's changed
You slipped away
Remembering those blessed days

September sun invigorates
Glimpses of glory warmed
It's riches clasp the back of neck
Absorbed in chest and flow to rest

Time be spent so look ahead
Aim to be your best throughout the test
This place is finite so be our heads
More to life than meets the end
Undefined redemption led

The storm I hold back
In my heart,
And my mind,
If I release it all at once,
Then everything will end.

At least for me...
My HP Poem #1881
Β©Atul Kaushal
Glimpses of what it was,
Moments of sweetness,
Left a tang of bitterness,
And... a smirk
One thing I dislike about the night is
It ends,
The comfort, the coziness all have to end.
It gives space for the day to rise.
Which makes me see all the emptiness and ask me to wise.
I don't wanna die, I don't wanna live in lies
Wish the night prevail forever in the skies
So the pain, the hurt, the failure never visible to my eyes.

Your bliss;
Channel your
Inner godliness;
25% off inspiration;
Sale ends this Sunday.

A certain on-trend stationery store’s recent β€˜25% OFF INSPIRATION’ promo banner made me laugh and cringe in equal measure.

β€˜McMindfulness is a stock on the rise. A brand that promises to deliver.  It satisfies spiritual yearnings without being a religion.  It’s backed by brain scientists at Harvard and MIT. It’s magic without being magic.  It even transforms corporate culture and increases market share! Now that’s worth paying for.’
- Jeremy Safran, McMindfulness: The Marketing of Well-Being
A sum total of immediate family gathered
at a seaside Italian cafe
half loving getting time together
half dreading the weight of the urn

taking turns to tickle flippancy
in an honoured tradition of laughing
in the face of the massive horrors of life,
scales on the crusty familial armadillo

It’s time

Each step beyond the coffee steam
feels further into foreign territory
where defences weaken
even though the climb is sweet

we walk up a hill to reveal a familiar vista
that youth ignored huffily, heartily
and adulthood yearns for,
where memories pepper current steps

The humour shield holds until the ash is cast
when my throat clutches to swallow
knowing that my reasoning can’t break this,
even though you’d wipe it away

You aren’t allowed to soothe these tears,
they serve for the years and years,
pay pennies into arcade machines
and buy novelty rock never eaten

The bedrock and foundation of us
stands on this sometimes sunny head
holding hard to the ropes and lines
until the next handover
Would have been mum’s birthday on Saturday.

I turned the pages,
Heart was hardly beating right,
When I saw 'The End'.

To our AM virus nightmare
Nothing bad ever last!

Our P.M. nightmare ~virus CoV-02-19~
Nothing bad ever last.
Nothing bad ever last.

To my absent family
nothing bad can ever last
Nothing bad can ever last!

To my unprovoqued enemies
Nothing bad will ever last.
demonizing me to my beloved kin
Nothing bad can ever last.

ThisΒ economic system collapse
covert pandemic WW3, tresspass
thirty five million people
in a month unemployed
in thus USA alone
this darkness too shall pass

light barring vessels we are
the human spirit resilient is.
Nothing bad ever last.
Nothing bad ever last
Nothing bad ever last.
