A chance in a moment given
Time of utter importance
The guts to come forward
To grab the extended branch
A quick evaluation
Does mean it's right?

Step back and adjust posture
Deep breath before facts
Flood your thoughts
A river
Water flows faster than chance

To see it float away
Staying behind
A moment in decision making
A new chance will come this way

Barely up (DRAFT)
Flatfielder Feb 2021
Nights are long
You fail to breathe
Stretching your arm
It hurts what's wrong
Must exercise in time
Muscles did dwindle
Lifting and bending
Do you have to.....
Of course
It's never too late
Be again strong
In the morning dew
A whistle a song
Just a self assessment
Flatfielder Feb 2021
Drain me of pleasure
To be numb frightful and bound
Sink your teeth into my flesh
Rob me of willpower
So I can crawl into myself
A heap of my being
Let me rest steam for the hour
I will escape my jail
And head for the shower

Time wasting
Mind searching
For self
Who am I this morning
Cold drizzle meets a late dawn
Opens pores on bare skin
Feel free but awaiting
The Lights glance
Penetrating clouds
An hour of my truth
Absorbed into the rigors of a new day
When we were still farming

Repaired but not really broken
Was the verdict
When I examined my online find
In this time of distance
Brought home by a third party guy
It showed within a few days
Paid up and as honest as being seen
Repairs done by professionals
My BMW requested
some careful screen
Now home she likes the street
She hugs and she leans
A thrill to drive
Great pleasure indeed
A bit beat up, fit for the owner

From A to B
Cold, crisp and sunny
A perfect day
For a hike for us three
A winding path
Obstructions the dog doesn't mind
But us older folks
We had to circumvent
Some tricky climbs
We feel good
Our senses survived
A good afternoon

Breathe in breathe out
Catch me if you can
Running towards the horizon
Where space meets our zen
The master came and spoke
Life changed
although we remained
In our world  of limitations
Felling dead but still kicking
Really not all that bad

It was cold
Flatfielder Jan 2021
City street in the sunlight
It is march it is bright
Cold draft still is lingering
Like a snake in my pass
A person in a bundle
Hunkered down for the hour
Sunrays are not brightening
Her stillness her need
Her face I try to contact
But to no avail
Her stare does find an angle
Towards the pavement
A waving bundle of hair
I do see her dish
Grab coins I can spare
Feeling in my cold hand
Slow motion slip
Her one eye opens
Following the toonies descent
Her stillness was interrupted
We did not connect
Am on my way and didn't look back

Radio tuned Sam Cook not to miss
'straight through my lovers heart's
My wife grabs my released fist
It's piercing it's vibrating
Makes us feel to dance
In the kitchen as in all places
We don't see a fence
No heartbreaks here
We are long over that
Our ages our times
Forever been put to the test
Swiping our feet
Holding on to each other tight
A break of duration
Enough to replenish
Our energies might
Good feelings and unison
For a minute or two
The time again paused
It was nice

Sharing some thoughts
Within the restrictions
Of human expression
Not coming across
Yet do keep writing
So it is for myself
This moment
When I find truth
Just met this aincient fact
In a solitary booth
Just this

Between the seas
Flatfielder Jan 2021
Grown up between the waters
Bridge to Scandinavia

Looked west over the dikes
The lost lands to the sea

Went East to the cliffs
The Russian winds do blow

Back to the middle
Where the gales
Sweep the dirts soul
Once home

A plague has invaded
Sense and minds
Dig deeper race in circles
Relish trouble it excites
Pleasureseeker egoistic
Be now first
That's all what counts
Desire did take notice
If only one would abide
Eliminate all other senses
Going deep
There is nothing alike
Yet to burst and let go
A one freed when it left
So to see those lives' chances
Let them come
Let them be

For you
Flatfielder Jan 2021
Miss a good conversation
Knitting sweaters
Warm and fun
Care for warmth
Earth's children
Little baby soon the one
You will keep knitting
Feel the giving
Find the wool
The special kind

See a child wrapped in your care
It shall pass on
Warmth and cozy
Grown and prospered into giving
To the next little one
Your sweaters live
Protect the many
A team a group
They identify
A mother knitting
A mother caring
Her own children grown
A deep sigh
My wife knitting

Their core in upheavle
Very deep the unrest
'whattodo' time has come
Hormones  searching
Then numb
Feeling edgy
Wanting it all
Freefall never
They stay on top
Strong their mind
Keeping on searching
Gone the pressure
Reborn and proud
An upheavle

Humans' brain the engine
Manipulated and thrown
Into a fake world vision
Where violence has been sown
Powerful mobs
You hear their screams
They frighten a world
Yet behind the scenes
The instigators
The cowards
One of the last sick hurrays
When thugs get cornered

Pinecone in the snow
Flatfielder Jan 2021
Three pine trees moving gently
In the new years morning breeze
I feel renewal sitting quiet
An old friend placed a call
We chatted laughed remembered
Old friends the younger years
Many passed others clinging
Stories never seized
I see the magic pinecones
Attached to the 100 foot pines
My neck stiffens when I look up
Dizzy focus towards the ground
A lone pinecone landed
On the fallen fluffy snow
My thoughts now interrupted
Joys and glory times
Stepping back with dimming memories
Placed with the pinecone in the snow
Last winter on the farm

Nourishing moment
Drop stuns a face
Rolling down a windshield
An amazing race
Earth's yearnings
For the nectar of Life
Witnessed on grey mornings
When hope wins over doubt

She gave me this smile
In the doorstep
Did cut through my distance
Disturbed any absences
While being approached
For discussion and fun
Games and companionship
While in self-imposed isolation
Will turf and disband
A new morning
When I shall return a smile
Again saved by her charm
To my wife

New beginnings

Wants to be popular
Not to be seen
Likes fancy cars
Can't stand the sheen
Mumble and grumble
Nobody hears
Time to reflect
Outstanding fears
A safe and happy new year

Break through my wall
My **** of distrust
Relieve me of anger
Show me a new pass
I beg you to lead me
Away from who I am
Into a new sharing place
An illusion just has been penned

Reflection on crusting snow
Short time  refreshing
Dare the gentle cold
Temperature is rising
Blood rushing

Nude revelation
Flatfielder Dec 2020
Revealing to myself
Who am I
Not hidden away
Under clothes
warmth and comfort
Now an explicit show
See my faults
Enjoy my features
Like my presence
In the ****
Quite surprised
A new feeling
Focused on oneself

My ring of fire
Flatfielder Dec 2020
It brings me together
No one shares
But receives
That's how I feel this moment
Absorption the seal
Only give yet to be selfish
The pleasure is mine
We relax in our glory
The taste of a sip of wine
A good morning to all

Sooner or later
I ought to write this letter
A decision has been made
Families' history prolonged
Like it or object
There is no room for that point
Flowers shall be placed
Every summer
By an unknown
Every body welcome
to stop by
And wonder
Where the descendants have gone
History remembered

Lay beside me
Flatfielder Dec 2020
Come lay beside me
Touch my quivering skin
Let's be one in a moment
Remembering our next of kin
They are safe
We have peace
Meeting again
We will survive
In our enclosure
We dance the freedoms' chive
Understanding freedom

Looking forward
Flatfielder Dec 2020
Yes thats what we will do
Daylights embrace us
The morning sun
Shall warm our foreheads
We stretch
We need a moan
A release of our tensions
We love
It's us
We are home
Longer days, shorter nights

In the picture
This old black and white
Had missed the lecture
Of being pointy no fright
Outraged in a moment
Wrong words the offensive
People move sideways
Their eyes evasive
Remaining ..
Their sillhouette
I retract
My heart seems to blush
All i am looking for now
The comfort of my shed

In the barrens
Flatfielder Dec 2020
Felt as if I was in the barrens
No Horizons with a setting sun
No trees giving shade
No mindless fun
Tried to reach out
No responses everywhere
Where was I all this time
Didn't catch realities diverse
Now I woke
The barrens have left my soul
I feel free
There are no doubts
Welcoming challenges are on their way
Have you been there?

Populists gaining attraction
Throwing lies
As they were Molotov cocktails
Single words
Repeated in different colours
Crowds are on 🔥

Sidestepping humanities values
The heat is building
Reason lost

Fascinations then obsessions
The latter be short-lived
Resurgence of sensibility
Once omens observed
Mans' intellect ignored
Baseless assumptions
floating about
Easily dismissed
To be forgotten in an eternal shroud

Clinging of hard heels
March of oppression
The arenas are packed
Lies shine there is no lesson
The pendulum swung
In this one way direction
Fear and cowardice
Don't even dare a different mention

The day has come
We will meet
Most of us
Can we all sustain
Our intentions or bust
Can we find intimate moments
Where we share pain and guilt
Where we find joy and happiness
Where we rekindle our trust
Can we walk side by side
Feeling close and be fine
Where we want to lead and to follow
All the same in one steps time
No annoyance uninhibited laughter
Give us a few hours
We rebuild
There is still one central figure
When we part
We hope  we are all in this guild
Family dynamics

Deep in the valley
of the deepest dream
the innocence of feelings
Have overcome

Soaking in the humid

Yell and sceam
Flatfielder Dec 2020
Feel like crying
Scream literally
Tight in my chest
Want to bust that wall
Release my anxiety my fear my none
Been told and ignored
Must endure but how long
Longtime ago said goodbye
To my flashes hotspots
It has come back
**** the past
Am I a fraud
A Scheister looser
Bailed so many times
Brought forward are the questions
move on your miles are stretched
One last hurry
Walk that mile
Make that a quest
Realizations of a downer

Words are meaningless
Actions are what matter most
So I have been told
Just not my view

Words of comfort
Words of hate
People's reactions
Will tell you of their fate

Let go
Flatfielder Dec 2020
Was it the tremor
But I wasn't alone
You came forward
Into the crowd we were thrown
Where did you come from
Never did ask
Your movements synced deeply
The few moments of chance
For a good conversation
All is left is a glimpse of your face
It sits in my head
'Bye ***' to be your last word
You stepped back
I let go
Sweet moments

Will we leave
You still have that car
The sale shall happen
Or have I just gone astray
Again self judgment has come to me
You say let go
no more
A future shall come for us
Let's dance and push in that hernia
Explore the world we haven't seen
The corners the nooks
Icecream in the shade
Leaving the farm just before covid

Must be good
Flatfielder Dec 2020
More running into lampposts
Glass shattered
Lightbulbs explode
Bump on my head
Radiator blown
All in a one night's dream
Just realized and remembered
Where is the core
Where is the truth
It never did happen
Mind games
Drawn from the unconscious
It's good to be still living
Brainwaves in dis array
Dream on
Dec 2020 · 56
Flatfielder Dec 2020
Panic in silence
A future at stake
To be easy going
Put into suspense

How will judgement come
Those attempts at gaining their trust
Hope for survival
,Be Social and kind

Will a truth be unearthed
To let it be
A feeling consumes

Left and erased
A connection just dropped
By technical action
Didn't overpower that want
Still widened the distance
This one way street
Will there be a sign of living
Coming down against the beat
of souls' connections never ending
Let them be lost
but never gone
Lost connection

Dream on
Flatfielder Dec 2020
Dance in the snow
Slide down that hill
Go where you are meant to be
Dream your way
Intermittently sore
Find the alley
Find the door
Enter silently
Fear no more
In your dream you are home
You fall asleep
Awaken gently
All is left is dreaming on
Dream on

You can't get away
Flatfielder Dec 2020
A thousand miles you travelled
To cross the desert sand
to empty mind and spirit
You enter now the fertile land
Will you stay
Or move on walking
Refreshed and nourished satisfied
You could find solace
Settle down
Forgetting Angst and fences
But you do still think about
Your ever present hitches
On the go
