DISTRACTION … a pantoum


2012-10-12 10.35.13

Distraction leads the Way to far away

Not for the grass to be greener

In the over there on that other side

Once there looking back to where you came from

 

Not for the grass to be greener

It’s more being pulled away from the moment

Once there looking back to where you came from

Yearning to be in that place  before the muse arrived

 

It’s more being pulled away from the moment

Maybe that moment held too much need

Yearning to be in the place before the muse arrived

She is an airy wisp of dreamy want

 

Maybe that moment held too much need

Some moments are like that in the working through

She is an airy wisp of dreamy want

She will hold you close once she has you

 

Some moments are like that in the working through

In the over there on that other side

She will hold you close once she has you

Distraction leads the Way to far away

‘I’m the youngest I’ll ever be’… a pantoum.

I’m the youngest I’ll ever be right now

Youth had its way with all my parts

I’ve parted with those days for these

So many moments brought me here

 

Youth had its way with all my parts

It was quite a party for decades

So many moments brought me here

The embrace holds acceptance in the mirror

 

It was quite a party for decades

East and West and all that in-between

The embrace holds acceptance in the mirror

Still a smile and a twinkle in the old eyes

 

East and West and all that in-between

I’ve parted with those days for these

Still a smile and a twinkle in the old eyes

I’m the youngest I’ll ever be right now.
