The Watch

Elegant and periodic,
Extensive and hypnotic.
Standing at the feet of this masterpiece,
A young boy with a heavy heart,
In a bedroom closet, hidden in the dark.
He can see its patterns in stark, detail.
Lines that flicker in and out,

The Wall

Trumpity Dumpity built up a wall
Trumpity Dumpity had a great fall
And all the horses and all the men;
wouldn't vote for him

The Thief

You stole half of my life
And all it took from you was a few moments in time.

That replay in my head
And I have to remind myself
That this body
Is mine.

I wonder what was going through your mind,
How you could just walk into my room

The ten amendments by Wayne Morrison

As we sign this petition
For our attrition
We prepare for the fights
To gain our rights
With this blood on our hands
We make anew these lands

They tried to take our religions
They tried to make our decisions
In these new lands
We toil...

The sweet lie

I know not of happiness
That lights up the sky;
And brings laughter
The joyful hearts that spring
On the summer field

The never ending smiles
That seem to bring envy
That stretches for miles
For I know not of happiness
That lights up...

The strongest one

Her brother yelled
as he didn't get the best bat
for the cricket was important
while she read from his handed down books
with delight

So it was her final professional viva
she came out weeping
'oh how weak' people exclaimed
the examiner...

The Star

We follow the star.
We can’t make use of its hydrogen and helium
The mix of gases that comes together to form it
But we follow the star.

We follow the star.
It’s nuclear beauty is enchanting
Lulls us into a photonic trance
So that we...

The Slant Bridge

Once an early morn I saw a slant bridge,
the whispers of rivulets that echo
and narrow at the top, like a lone ridge

in some far distance of silent meadows;
merely waiting for the foghorn to sound,
hops a rabbit that lives in a mucky burrow;

The Shallows

I’m the infant seamaster.

I like fishing in the shallows,
Especially for coelacanths.
I like praying to rocks,
Especially headstones.
I like to sail,
Especially when the tides turn heavenward.

I’ve lived a thousand lifetimes
In a...

The Seaside

Glittering and gleaming, blue water
Marine creatures everywhere
Strong waves next to gentle sand
The warmth of the sunshine
Kids building castles
Smell of sunscreen
The seaside

The Rocking Chair

She gathers her thoughts as she rocks in the chair
And stares out the window into the thin air
Alone with the memories that dance in her mind
The old clock is ticking, devouring her...

The Promise

Your gallant gallop framed with silent stars.
Back and forth you shape your graceful dance.
It's like the lion's stroll,
Amid the screeching primates.

The moon casts a spotlight,
Prancing, gently trotting,
To the cricket's serenade.
