A Writer's Journey of a Secluded Mind

Month

July 2020

Twentypence for a lifetime, a laugh, a love, a thought
Typical ignorance denied the inspiration of inflation
Wonderfully, but for a pittance the thought was lost

.

The ultimate answer is forty-two
What was the question no one knew
Envious minds reply on rote
Nodding to something that could be a joke
The end the beginning
Your imagination could find the question
One night years from now
Newly evolved in a dawning light
Eschewing the answer, what was the question?

I am old
I am sitting here wishing on a dream that I know will never happen
Don’t settle they say
Don’t settle I repeat
But why do I feel holding out means eternity alone?

“You’re a gossip.”
“Huh?”
“You’re a gossip.” Larry looked over his shoulder. “You’re a gossip and you haven’t gossiped.”
Joe sat up in bewilderment, whiskers twitching. “I am not a gossip.” Paws folding, he lay back down; “Oh, we both know that’s not true. What didn’t I gossip?”
Larry acknowledged the words with an ear flick. Busy watching the humans walk by. One two three..
“What did I not gossip?”
Rolling to his side, Larry gave his brother a long look.
“Look mommy! The big kitty is yawning!”
Rolling his head to acknowledge the comment, Larry stretched out in the afternoon sun on the warm rock. “You neglected to mention” ear flick “that the penguins escaped yet again.”
“Wait! What?”
“What’s black, white, not dinner and sitting behind you?”

I write because I am afraid to speak
I write because of fleeting thought
I write because I am not heard
I write because once it is thought it is forgot

Arising up out of mist
Silent wonder as ship begins to list
As sails start to twist
This syren’s call, I shall resist

.

Surrounded by water
Occluded by cloud
No footsteps have explored it
One space man has not named
