“THE APPOINTMENT”

Ellie belfiglio

awesome_16_bit_forest_scene

… Old scenes and faces recalled in mind

Left with me that dark night.

And dreading what would be my fate

Engulfed my soul with fright…

… How could I know what the hours would hold?

Yet the choice become painfully clear.

Faded memories could ring painfully true

Or there would be little to fear…

… A new dress and hairdo, though crisp and untouched

Did not change what I could not erase!

The panic arising as my car found its spot

Where the dreaded appointment took place…

… My feet numb, but I neared the door

Unwilling to take such a chance

When suddenly strong arms and a haunting face

Whisked me over the floor to dance…

… And it wasn’t until the wee hours at home

I reflected on all that was done

And realized with glee, while sipping my tea

Class reunion really are fun!! …

“CLUMSY INTENSION”

15665656_2171297363094521_8761801326444928412_n3

… The art of engagement tend to allude me,

like water under a bridge from a distance.

Social behavior is desired beyond words.

And harder than talking to a policeman,

after a parent’s attempted suicide.

… You want it so bad, it can’t happen.

You get done doing the yard, and-

pulling the mower into the garage.

Feel the squish of struggling bird-

under your feet. It makes this smell.

… You try to dart or dance away.

And stomp on another one. You get a shovel;

might as well get used to it.

We hurt more by accident.

And repay wonderful kindness with clumsy intention!! …

“COMMAND OF GREAT SPIRIT”

wpid-wp-1406198469706

“Ellie,” Do not grieve!

Misfortune will happen to the wisest and best human.

Death will come!

And always comes out of season.

It is the command of great spirit…

What is passed is gone, Ellie.

Can it be prevented or grieved for.

“How do you feel, Ellie?”

“When you are sick, do you feel old?”

“When you are healthy, does age matter?”…

“FEEBLE”

Ellie belfiglio

21jan2013snow-389

… I am on a snow tiring journey…

Tedious as it is, but that which

Neither you nor I can choose.

Slowly am I aging but surely

Because I am sick…

I am withering…

img_2990

… My years are rolling by

My lips of dawn are now

pale and drawn

Because I am sick…

I am withering…

… Now standing as a pensioner

“What is for dinner?”

Feeble, worn out, gray coming out!

This is my one but last destination

Because I am sick…

I am withering…

… Once I was a lion

But now, mellow, sick, withering!! …

“THE EYES, OH, THE EYES”

1134160-bigthumbnail

… Soft body, dappled. sensuously warm!

Calm awaits maturation of the seeds-

of its own destruction to flower!

The swath of the inevitable and-

mercifull reaper approaches,

while nature’s masterfully costed creatures…

crude-awakening-jane-fulton-marissa

Lies awaiting with head held alertly.

Limbs obediently embracing its sides;

and the eyes, oh, … The eyes!

… The eyes dark and bold hold the innocence-

of a moment and the wisdom of eternity.

Those magnificently shinning eyes the soul of any kind-

live beyond the harvest!! …

“THE LIBERATION”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have ached as a quivering branch in the depth of winter.

Layer and layer of ice encase me in their coffins.

Sealed with ageless desolation in a frozen wasteland.

Stripped raw and suspended in mid-grasp.

And in the final spasms of life-

reality peaks out from anxiety.

Its abyss erupts in the space of my eyes;

as the mushroom blooms in the sky for infinite instant.

And existence is glimpsed in its open maelstrom-

just before the coffin explodes!! …
