Internal Workings (of An Abstract Mind)

I've thrown rainbows at the sky
They landed in puddles
So I splashed

I've known goddesses Greek and Gallic
Lost my religion
When they clashed

I've sipped from myriad murky seas
Slipped and fell
Almost drowned

I've siphoned silent symphonies
And lurching lullabies
Endless sound

I've tasted seven types of tyranny
Indulged others' dreams
Mine were stashed

I've studied pyramids of old Euclid
Applied brave systems
Unabashed

I've offered up my very soul
Taught savage tribes
Stood my ground

I've populated planet Earth
Now come inside
See what I've found

Purple Promise

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Purple Promise ~

LISTEN TO THE POEM



"Purple Promise" by "Sab Will" (for "Jenny Joseph")



Purple Promise

I wrote her a letter, perfectly polite
Inquiring if maybe she possibly might
Now that she's, well, not quite so terribly young
Help clear up a question that's horribly hung
In the air like a unsung song wanting to soar
To an eight-year-old's ears who can't wait any more

I wrote her a letter, imperfectly trite
From a fifty-year-old feeling dreadfully slight
Drifting light down the decades, casting around
Drowning in dapples, sinking in sound
But as boundaries break down, she's over four-score
I'd love to discover the colour she wore

As she opened my letter, implausibly bright
That I wrote between twilight and tumbling night
With a warning of writing inspired by her flows
I slipped in some poems and purply prose
And a bracelet of fake amethyst I suppose
So she'd honour the outrageous oath that she swore

To a curious kid with a wish to explore
And get answers to wisen his whimsical core

by Sab Will
For Jenny Joseph, who wrote the famous poem, Warning, and to whom I've just written asking if, in fact, she does wear purple now that she's 'not as young as she used to be'. I'll let you know what she says... (August 2016)

One Year Younger

Poetry Of Sorts
~ One Year Younger ~

LISTEN TO THE POEM



"One Year Younger" Sab Will poetry


One Year Younger

After the calm, the storm, un-
Leashed by the beast in
Cylindrical form
Opened with a twist of a cynical wrist
Holding out for the meaning
Of feeling for-
Lorn

Feeding the manacled mist of the morning
Reeling in up-ended
Empties galore
Even now as I think back half scared I might sink back

My mythical lover is scorned
Evermore

For, well, Me, damn it! Cheers :-)

Flood Warning

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Flood Warning ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Flood Warning

Standing on the brink
The waters rising
Drowning in the drink

A fellow's fickle hand
A gentle nudge, a reprimand
A

Maiden's midas
Touch me mentally
If sentimentally

I'm still unstable
Still unwise enough
To waver when
I think


for Stephen & Alex

Steaming Bray

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Steaming Bray ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Steaming Bray

A bonnie beast passed by today
O yeah, at fifteen hands and five
Felt good to be alive, and then
Again, I can't remember when
I flew like you, feels good
Though, just to be around
Safe and sound, as thundering hooves
Shake the ground, and stallions
Steaming bray

Bow Tie Blues

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Bow Tie Blues ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Bow Tie Blues

The butterfly she flutters by
Like my old grandpa's best bow tie
But more beauty than a best bow tie
For ties are binding more than I
Care for as well as the butterfly

Call of the Wild Wolf

Poetry Of Sorts
~ Call of the Wild Wolf ~
 LISTEN  TO  THE  POEM (SOON)

Call of the Wild Wolf

The fire is flickering in the hearth
The day's drawn in, it's near nightfall
A sudden scuffle on the path
That's when you hear the wild wolf's call

The moon has not yet set to wane
A muffled footstep in the hall
A tap upon a spattered pane
That's when you hear the wild wolf's call

The book lies open on your lap
Your eyes are fixed upon the wall
You've woken from a stolen nap
That's when you hear the wild wolf's call

Yellow eyes lapped by the firelight
Ears prick up, you're stretching tall
A smile is glinting in the night
And echoes of the wild wolf's call
